It's your chance to sell your favorite deadly sin.

Does that scrumptious cupcake tempt you to gluttony? Maybe road rage on the freeway brings out your wrath? The deviantART #StockProject and Fotolia are challenging you to choose a side and either entice the city into further temptation or inspire them to stand fast against their inner vices.

Using stock from #StockProject create a billboard to advertise or warn people against your favorite sin.

Seven sinful or angelic deviants will have their artwork displayed around the city. There will be one winner per sin and the grand-prize winning ad will be displayed on a billboard. The grand-prize winner will be flown out to San Francisco, CA to see the ad in person.

What side will you choose?

Read Official Rules »
Choose Your Sin

Read up on the seven deadly sins and pick one to create an advertisement that either promotes the sinful behavior or warns people against it. The name of the sin must be prominently featured in your advertisement.

A less obvious sin may be a more likely winner. And, you can enter multiple times.

Read Official Rules »

At least 3 stock images from #StockProject must be used and easily recognizable in your advertisement. You can use any of the images from #StockProject, not just the ones in the Seven Deadly Sins Contest gallery. Any medium may be used in combination with the stock artwork but you may not use stock from any other sources than #StockProject.

All stock images used must be listed as a resource in the description of your entry.


Use the template to format your entry for use on a billboard. Strong simple design works best in this format.  For use as posters your entry may be cropped at the sides by as much as 20%.

To enter submit your artwork to the Seven Deadly Sins Contest gallery.

usually they post a message in your messages that they are announcing the winners so check your messages maybe tomorrow they will announce the winners. Also people who find it first will post a link here for everyone to see the winners. It will also more than likely be posted on stockproject too [link] Hope this helps and good luck.

My submitted entry somehow isn't 2100 x 720 as it was when I saved it in Photoshop and is down to 2100 x 700.
Will this affect it in anyway? I just noticed it and the rules clearly state that size, not just under. T_T I really hope not...
