- First choose a project leader.
This does not have to be the current team leader. In fact, it should be the person
who is most familiar with graphics editing on your team.
- Obtain a recent picture (head
& shoulders), digital or scanned in, and post it on the Hotline server. See format
- Obtain a recent full body picture,
digital or scanned in, and send it to your project lead. This will be used for a
group composition. See details below.
- Each of you answered a questionnaire
from a few months ago, and I will provide the answers to those questions to each
project lead. The project lead will need to compile the information into a meaningful
and flowing text description of your tribe.
- Project Leader
- Your team must select a project
leader for this task. The project leader will basically coordinate the project, delegate
tasks, and determine who receives the Freeway product. After discussing with your
team and determining the project leader, the team leader needs to email me the name
of the project lead by 12/29/04.
- Face Pictures
- This must be a recent picture
(pictures from previous contests do not qualify). The picture must be from the front,
including the full face and neck (shoulders optional). The picture must be in JPEG
format only, at a resolution of 72 dpi, high-quality JPEG, and 256 x 256 pixels in
dimension. These JPEGs must be uploaded to the Mists of Avalon Hotline server. Log
into the server using your tribe's unique logon credentials, and upload the pictures
in the "Uploads" folder contained in your "Vault" (iOftheTiger
Vault or MacLion Vault). It is up to the project lead to ensure that the pictures
meet the requirements above.
- Group Composition
- Each member needs to provide their
project lead a full body picture. The project lead will compile the pictures into
a single picture, replacing the backdrop with something appropriate to your island
lifestyle. A flag or wooden sign needs to be included showing the name or symbol
of your tribe. Be creative!
