Win How to Win

Basically, you make sprays others want to download.  Your score is the combined download total that your sprays accumulate during the contest period.  By having the score based on total downloads, general visitors unknowingly vote by downloading sprays.  Higher quality or creative sprays are naturally downloaded more often.  It may take only one epic spray to win the entire contest.  Spray wisely.

Feel free to promote sprays and profile pages responsibly.  Do not spam forums, email, etc. Do not cheat. Only unique downloads are counted, repeat downloads will not increase contest scores.

Leaderboard The Live Leaderboard

The "Leaderboard" displays the live contest standings.  All participating members will appear with their username, eligible sprays and current score.
