"Design New Ahoy World Signature Graphics!"


What do you need to do?


There are some really cool signature graphics people have made; like those belonging to Kamaradski and Danny to name a couple!  The signature graphics are a really eye catching and striking way to show your affiliation to a community.  Expert graphic designer or even a novice, now is the time to start! You can make as many entries as you like, if you submit something then think "I can do that better" or if you just get a strike of genius, then go for it!


Entries must adhere to the following criteria to be eligible for entry:


-Must be submitted by a user with an Ahoy World Forum account.

-Signature Size: 500px 130px

-Picture format: PNG

-Use of Alpha Layer: Allowed

-No Personal Names / Flags etc.

Entries may be made into one of the following categories:

Signature with open text areas that we might update regularly, that will contain news, stats, announcements, upcoming events, etc. - There will be one winner for this category.

Signature with AW logo and text only, not related to just 1 specific game (either add lots of different game elements, or none at all) - There will be two winners for this category.

Lol @proxima well currently that's the entry currently in the lead for all categories :P


p.s. Who is that in the picture with you?

I'm glad. Because it TOTALLY didn't take me literally 5 minutes using Paint.net at work to make xD


p.s. If you mean my Avatar, then that is my favourite youtuber (youtube.com/user/ashens) I met him at the london comic-con :)

Thought so, Ashens is the best!  So jealous you met him :P

Will have to go to London Comic-Con next year! 


gotta love the



Ah, not often I meet someone else who has an interest in Ashens and his videos. Out of all the "youtubes" he's the only one I NEVER miss a video from. So glad I got to meet him. He signed my Silver skull mask :D


EDIT: And yeah, you should, would be great to actually meet you in Person xD

Back at you dude :P

Let me know when, where and what we are cos playing as :P


Btw anyone who hasn't watched Ashens, its such a unique and very funny YouTube channel.  I guess on the surface it looks like a product review channel except in most cases all the products are flawed or cheap tat.  Poundland and food specials are by far the most entertaining but if you ever wanted to see things like the apple newton being used/ critiqued I would imagine it's one of the few places to go.

Any ways enough of this tangent back to the contest :P

Im up for this you can see my deviant art here http://colindaniellafferty.deviantart.com/ 

The only problem i have is will the signature have to be generic or can it be specific enough to one game. I know yyou requested that it include all games or none at all which is totally fine.

We would also like for Arma and Minecraft to have a game specific signature. As these are kind of our main games atm.


For the editable signatures they should be AW themed (or have items from all sorts of games), as AW does not stand for one game only, as we are a gaming community for any game.


I like your entry, and edited your post to display the picture properly. Thanks for the first entry in the competition !! That makes you in the lead :D
