r/Rainbow6 has been using the great Alibi subreddit icon created by u/Nishikienrai for about a year now but the time has come to work on a refresh. For this, we wanted to tap into the vast supply of great community artist and are excited to announce that we will be hosting a contest to do just that!
How to enter
Create a subreddit icon (also known as Snoo) and submit your entry as a top-level comment under this post. It is recommended that you host your work on Imgur or a comparable image hosting service. Submissions will be open for two weeks until Saturday, July 6th, 00:00 UTC.
Don't forget to see our requirements and tips down below.
What is there to win?
The top 3 submissions will receive 1800 R6 Credits each.
How the winner will be selected
After submissions have closed, the moderation team will come up with a closer selection of some of our favorites which we will put up for a community vote. Keep an eye out for that announcement if you want to have a say!
Requirements & tips
There are only a couple of requirements:
- To preserve Reddit traditions, all entries need to resemble the classic snoo in some way. Both old and new design variations are fine, more on that below.
- All entries need to have sufficiently big dimensions. At least 256×256 is required, 512×512 or above would be ideal.
- Please supply a variation with a transparent background (if applicable).
Now onto some tips/hints. Make use of them as you please, these are no requirements:
- The subreddit icon will be
scaled down significantly in some place. Make sure it still looks good in a small size.
- As mentioned in the requirements, both old and new snoo design are fine. Here are some examples of both:
- New design:
Basic examples from Reddit's Brand Guidelines, r/FortNiteBR's current snoo, a variation on r/teenagers' snoo
- Old design: Our current snoo on new Reddit (Alibi),
our current snoo on old Reddit (Rook)
- New design:
- Subreddit icons can be animated using the
Animated PNG (APNG) format, these can be created on sites like
this one. GIFs can also be
easily converted to APNGs should that suit your workflow better.
- If the snoo is used in the subreddit banner, it is able to change appearance when the mouse cursor is hovering over it. See this GIF for an example with our current snoo.
Any questions? Feel free to ask them under the stickied comment below and keep other top-level comments limited to entries only.
Good luck! We're looking forward to your submission!
