Designers, we need your help!  Mycroburst and WeTransfer have teamed up to bring you a stellar contest.   You can win $300 and more!  Here are the details:

How can you win?
We need you to design a wallpaper advertisement that will be feature on’s website.  Once the winner is chosen their design will run for 3 months on WeTransfer.

If you’re unfamiliar with WeTransfer, but are familiar with your email inbox reaching capacity, then this is the site for you.  Used by many, WeTransfer is a free online file transfer service.  The site is simple and very user-friendly.

When you visit, the only features are the uploader, and the large pieces of art and graphic design – or their wallpaper advertisements.

What’s a wallpaper?
WeTransfer is able to offer free file transferring, up to 2 GB per transfer, thanks to advertising.  But they do it a little differently.  Instead of annoying pop-ups or text-based banner ads, WeTransfer features artistic backgrounds which are beautiful, colorful images provided by advertisers.  Take a look at their website for its general ambiance.

What exactly should the wallpaper be like?
MycroBurst needs to design an original and create wallpaper that can be featured on WeTransfer.  As discussed previously, the wallpaper shouldn’t be like a normal advertisement, it should be an outstanding image or graphic!  It also needs to embody and what we represent.  Use the logo, but be creative with it!  Feel free to use our tagline if you wish – “get drenched in design.”

Please note, there is an upload box in the middle of WeTransfer’s website.  Please take that into consideration when designing.

When does the contest start and end?
It’s on!  Start submitting today at, we are accepting designs until Monday, June 27, 2011.

What’s in it for me?
$300!  And a free WeTransfer Channel!  2nd and 3rd place will also receive a WeTransfer channel!  At $120 per year, the channels allow you to have your own WeTransfer URL, customization to your site, extended file storage for 4 weeks and more!  Any freelance graphic designer will instantly seem more professional with a custom file transfer website.

What are the requirements?
Here’s the nitty gritty:  Files must be in the format of JPG, GIF or PNG.  Ideally the wallpaper should be 2560×1600 pixels.  The wallpaper must represent Mycroburst and include the logo in some way – be creative!  Don’t forget:  The WeTransfer site has an upload box that lies across the middle of the wallpaper. Check out the website to see what the website looks and feels like.
So what exactly are you waiting for?  Head over to the contest now, there are just about 2 weeks left!
