judges will begin to rate all the entries and the winner should be announced before the 1st of September.
Now the contest will be devided in two divisions; Novice and intermediate. Novice concists of signatures made by users who are more or less starting off in graphic design. The intermediate level will concist of users who have a fair amount of knowledge and experience in the subject. You may pick which division you belong to but if us judges feel that you do not belong in that division we will change it. (This will prevent graphic design masters from entering the novice class for an easier win.)

-You must have made the signature yourself. No stealing someone else's design.

How the signatures will be rated:
Us judges will rate every signature on a scale from 1 to 5. Then we will add all our ratings together and find the average. The person with the highest average wins for that division. In case of 2 or more people tying we will rate those members only and continue to eliminate untill there is a final winner.
