Holly cow, the Victor Kislyi poster is just briliant, also the grand winner definitely deserves its place.

Congrats everyone!

Yes, a nice Poster, Submariner. Congrats. But wait:
The winner has -1 votes, the following post from jullebarge has 0, but he won nothing. Isn't 0 more than -1? ..i'm confused.

Very nice posters, I thought about making one myself(no time though) but with my (lacking)talent it would never have been as good as these ones. GJ guys and congratulations.

Reputation on the forums had nothing to do with who won.  The winners were decided by votes from all members of the community team who each checked through the submissions to select their favorites.

Nice posters, rely all of them. Some are a bid inspired by old classic posters but still no coppy.
Gothmorns are rely good I think, with a new text (not a comercial) it could easyly be placed in my bedroom.
meny more deservs a mention, but,,,,,

WG, 3x5 cm thumbnails are not rely up to standart. Every porngallery or onlineshop on the web, would have made those thumbnails clickable. One click magic it's called.
I know I could just find those posters somewhere ells on the forum or portal, but why should I?

Yeah ... nice posters , well designed and all ... but where is the propaganda in them ??

Shouldn't a propaganda poster make you do what it wants you to do ?? None of them would make me vote....

Well the winners are quite ok and much better chosen then the rage face winners tbh... The additional winning submisions are on the other hand hilariously bad chosen imo.

So wait....a majority of people slightly modifies EXISTING propaganda posters (which is basically 0 creative input) and wins a reward while people who come up with ideas all by themselves usually don't?.....hmmmmm.

And not to mention:
• Please respect copyright rules.

Before making the poster i asked WG what i CAN use.
WG material was ok to use, not copyrighted material by someone else.

And then

Next time WG, don't even WRITE the rules. Victor one was at least funny, even though is 90% copyrighted.


And dont get me wrong. Some posters were really amazing, and i didn't expect to win since i didn't go for really old sql vintage look.
But HOW can some of those 15 posters be better than this one ? Not to mention bunch of those on the forum far far better.

Yes, you are right i used an old WW2 poster to create my own. I didn't made a full own made poster for a reason, and it's that so it's a bit classic, and old timer. The important thing is the idea. I think that's what the wg liked. You could argue with the copyright rule, but it' has no reason now.

And your idea was just add own text to existing propaganda poster. Congrats, your creativity is below zero.

but the idea was to CREATE old sql classic poster with vintage feel, not stamp the existing one. I didnt even manage to do that for mine, i wanted it to have a different feel to it, but some really created old sql posters. I think those were 2,3,4th place.

i like your poster, dont get me wrong, is a really funny idea. But if they said NO COPYRIGHT why then award 2 in top 5 that have ony changed text and minor parts of the photo.
I would have finnished my poster in half an hour if i used some famous vintage poster. Not 3 hours trying to make something original and different.

Is not that i am saying i should have won, but they should respect the rulles if thy bother to make them.

Again, this is nothing against you in particular, but against wg.

Cheers!

PS: roblack, as you told one of the rules was
- Please respect copyright rules.

Did you see the copyright notice (i.e.: © 1993 Jan Daro) in the picture that you download like me from internet ?  I think not.  As you know Copyright and the Internet is still in a state of flux and many issues are not resolved.
