How to withdraw entry?
Posted 23 October 2011 - 07:09 PM
click portfolio/contest works. You will see a blue notepad icon. Click the icon, if you are able to withdraw that entry you will see a popup asking if you are sure you want to remove the entry.
If your entry has a problem and you noticed this before being eliminated or marked by a moderator then send a helpdesk ticket in and we will remove it for you

Question: I have now entered a contest with a design that I viewed properly, however, upon upload the background was changed to black. Now, by "view properly" I am including a (THE) photo fax viewer for windows. PNG looks fine; whitebackground.
Obviously not working with a black background, the image is not to my liking (therefore I am stuck with the entry for 1 month, etc. etc.)
HOWEVER, how do I solve this??? For my re-submittal? Is this somekind of Alpha business, I can see it fine in Windows...?
Should I just export for a JPG? What happens if I view the JPG correctly and the re-submittal behaves the same way?
Thank you for comments

Thank you for the link, I had read that and have re-read. I am confused though by possible conflicts of the instructions, or my understanding of them.
Namely, this line, "No gradient or flat backgrounds allowed unless specified by the contest holder."
and this one, "No transparent png file formats. If you upload a transparent png the background turns black, You can upload png just make sure the back ground is white".
Is the white background not a flat color? Please forgive my ignorance, and thank you for clarification. I want to follow the instructions for submittals. This really reveals how much I have to learn about vector file creation, and the raster derivatives...
The contest is Icon Design for Professional Signature Block Logo, entry #15. Thank you, I will fix the transparency issue before resubmittal.

"No gradient or flat backgrounds allowed unless specified by the contest holder." means no other color than white for a background unless the ch requests this
White is a flat color but it is also a no pigment color and lets the contestholder see the design for what it is with no distrations of any backgrounds. The white is a standard default with jpgs but with png you have have to put a white background.
It is always best to not use a background other than white unless it says in the brief. The contestholder has an option to choose a background color when they start a contest, they also can ask specific designers to have a background or post a message to all if they want a background for the design
