Hello everybody! At the moment the Young Composers website does not have a logo, nor a favicon. So, Chopin and I came on the idea to hold a logo AND a favicon design for the website. This competition is meant to everybody who is a YC member and you do not have to be a professional designer to join. Be as creative as you want! All submitted designs will be showed in the first Young Composers Magazine. After the publishing of this, all YC members can vote which one they like the most. Finally, Chopin can adjust minor things if needed. To avoid any ambiguities: Logo: will be placed somewhere between the header. The header would be considered anything above the navigation tabs. So that little bit of area between the tabs and the top of the page. Favicon: the icon that is shown to the left of the address bar in any of the browsers. For instance: http://www.shopalot.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/example-favicon.jpg A square form is preferred, because Chopin can then easily resize both images if the are too big to fit the header and / or the favicon. The name Young Composers needs to be included. Deadline Offical deadline is the 1st of October. Eventual latecomers can be rejected. How to participate Answer the poll with yes. If you do not want to participate, do not answer the poll. Submit your designs After you have finished both designs, make sure that you send a PRIVATE MESSAGE to @chopin and me. This is to avoid any cheating regarding creativity. All posts including images with designs by logos publically posted will be deleted. Your submission needs to contain a brief motivation why you have made the designs as they are. Voting via the magazine All submitted designs will be showed in the first Young Composers Magazine. After the publishing of this, all YC members can vote via a new topic in this forum which one they like the most. Reward Eternal fame. People visiting the forum will see the beautiful logo and icon designed by you. When there are any questions, just ask them here and Chopin or I will answer them. The best of luck! Kind regards, Chopin & Maarten Bauer
Hello everybody, Would it not be fantastic if Young Composers had its own special Magazine composed by the creative members of the forum? Since a few weeks I have been thinking about this idea. I already made a few magazines with the free program called Jilster (https://www.jilster.com/). The advantage of this program is that I (as a chief editor) can give specific pages to other people so that many people can work on one single magazine. The program is very ergonomic: I learned the things I needed to know in one hour of experimenting. Because the idea is still quite vage, I decided to schelude the magazine. This link leads you to the magazine in which you can see the topics I would like to include. https://jil.st/YoungComposersMagazinePreview Before I begin to write for this magazine, I would like to know if you would appreciate it. Could it be an valuable addition to the forum?I would also like to know if some of you are interested to help me. If you want to write about a topic that is not mentioned in this megazine scheme, do not be disappointed. I can give you several pages on which you can write about what you want. Furthermore, if you are interested send me a private message. I am very enthousiast, but of course we all have to be! Please be honest. Maarten *I know that not everybody has all free time to spend on writing and laying out the articles (including me), so there will not be a deadline. It is something extra and it has no priority.
[This topic is about how to join the Young Composers Magazine staff.] Hello everybody, Firstly, great that you want to help! Since there is much enthousiasm for the magazine (also to help), I have decided to continue the project. There are a few steps that you need to follow: Send me a personal message including that you would like to contribute articles to the magazine. In order to give you the ability to work on the magazine you have to create an account on https://www.jilster.com/. Afterwards, please send me your mail address via the same personal message, with which you have created your account so that I can add you in the lists of editors in Jilster. This addresses stay private and are not to be shared with other people without the permission of the owner of the address. Thus, these addresses will solely be used to invite you for the editor status. After this I will add you to the staff group of the YCM. Tell me which topic you want to write about and how many pages you expect to be necessary. When you receive a mail from firstname.lastname@example.org read it and accept it so that you can join the staff. Write! I set the deadline on the 1st of October, but as I already said we will not have a deadline, because we are bussy people and do not have all the time in the world to spend on a magazine. Haha! However, I would be very glad if we have it almost finished then. Kind regards, Maarten
