Update: Congrats to Sheena Oosten for winning the Dribbble invite. Thanks to everyone who participated. You’re all very talented and I’m hoping I had a lot more to invites to give away, but I’ll post them whenever I’m given more.
Dribbble is show and tell for creatives. Designers, developers and other creatives share shots — small screenshots of the designs and applications they are working on. I’ve been getting several emails from people asking for invites. There was even someone I used to know who never ever got in touch with me in the past but surprisingly wrote me asking for a Dribbble invite. Very thoughtful, yeah? :\
This Dribbble invite has been sitting in my account for a few weeks but I never got around to writing this post but finally…! So to all those who have been wanting to get drafted, now is your chance! Contest ends on March 15, 2011.
To be considered for this invite:
1. Join me on Dribbble by signing up as a Prospect
2. Leave a comment below saying why you want to be on Dribbble
3. Include three (3) links to work that you’re really proud of
4. Would appreciate if you could re-Tweet this! — “Dribbble Invite Giveaway! Get Drafted Now! – http://bit.ly/drb1dds (via @jancavan)”
At Dribbble, you take responsibility of who you draft so I’m going to have to be picky as to who I am drafting. Good luck, everyone!
Update: Last March 04, 2011, I received a spiteful message accusing me of asking people to "beg" for a Dribbble invite. Apparently, my intentions were misconstrued and to clear things up, that was never the intention of this giveaway. I was not sure who to give this invite to and a lot of the people I’ve been following are already on Dribbble so since I’m certain that there’s a lot of undiscovered talent out there who certainly deserve some exposure, I decided to put up this giveaway. This is pretty much like all the other giveaways I have on my site and all the other design blogs giving away Dribbble invites for that matter — the only difference this time is the prize and the mechanics. It absolutely doesn’t make any sense why I would actually want people to "beg" when I myself even won my invite through a contest I joined last year along with 150+ other participants.
