How to Enter
To enter, send a clear and good-quality picture of your finished design to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include in the subject line “Crescent Design Challenge.”
Notes on photos: you don’t need a fancy camera to take good photos—all the photos for this post were taken on an iPhone 4S!—but please try to take a photo that shows your design as clearly as possible so we can see your hard work. We recommend shooting in natural daylight, turning off your flash, and using macro mode (that little flower) if your camera has one. Your photo must be at least 300 x 300 pixels at 72 dpi or higher. If you’re not handy with a camera, try asking someone to take a picture of your design for you.
Submit your design by March 12, 2016! The challenge will be judged by the impartial and keen-eyed Bello Modo shop staff.
