Design An Award Contest!

Not open for further replies.


Design An Award!

Ever wanted to design your own award? Well here's your chance. Design An Award lets YOU create a brand new award for the community to earn!

How it works

What you'll need to do is name your award, give it a description so everyone knows how to earn it, and use an image for it in this format:

*Award image:

*Images must be 32x32 in PNG format with a transparent background.

After the submission period comes the voting time, everyone will choose which award they think is the best. The winner at the end of the voting period will have their award be added as an official Nintendo Realm award!

All participates regardless will get 50 NR Coins, the winner will receive 100 additional NR Coins AND be awarded their own created award.


1. You can submit only ONE award, however you can edit it at anytime before voting begins.

2. Your award must be something to earn on the forum, not just be handed out. A bad award example would be: "this award is given to anyone who joins the forum" or "this award is given to anyone who was on a previous forum".

3. Awards should also be something that takes time or good quality to earn, another example of a bad award is: "this award is given to any member who makes 1 post".

4. Make it clear as to how your award can be earned in the description, see a list of all current awards for examples: http://www.nintendorealm.com/t-official-nintendo-realm-awards

5. Don't steal other's award name/description/image.

Time schedule

Submission time starts now and ends Thursday June 14th, and then voting begins and will end Sunday June 18th.

Have fun and good luck everyone! :thumbsup:

Good award choice. (Y)

Your image though needs to have a transparent background (no white background). You need to remove that, or if you don't know how I'll do it for you.


You can use any program you want, most use Photoshop, but I personally use the GIMP.

GIMP: http://www.gimp.org/

There's also Paint.NET: http://www.getpaint.net/

thanks queen :D

Yeah--it's probably the easiest Award to get (Y)


Just to clarify, you don't have to create an award image from scratch, you can find an image using a Google Image search, just make sure it's a royalty-free stock image. For example copyrighted images or using an image from Deviantart without permission from the artist is a big no.

You can modify any stock images you find in a photo editor (GIMP, Photoshop, etc) and then submit them here.

it's not that it's "too hard to get"--it's just not something that can be kept track of, by some sort of COUNTER--or be fully officiated....
like Referrals, or Posts, or whatever....
