Psdtuts+! New Dawn Poster Design Contest!

Congratulations to our winners! Great job to everyone that participated in the contest. I'll be contacting the winners shortly to assist them with collecting their prizes. The winners should keep an eye on the Flickr email boxes for the next couple days.

There were quite a few entries that came very close to winning. Also, there are certainly more good entries submitted into the contest that are in the Psdtuts+ Flickr Group. Here are just a handful more that really captured our attention. Also, feel free to submit a tutorial concept for your contest entry designs. Many of the posters I saw would make great Photoshop tutorials.
