Background

During online and offline activities of the TechNet community, we are using images to promote the TechNet Wiki in general and in order to improve the visual affect. For example images can be used to improve the looks & feel of announcements, blogs, articles, and even offline use like presentations. Banners are usually presents on top of posts and Logo is use for the content.

First official "Microsoft TechNet Wiki group on Facebook" was created on July 16, 2014. At the end of 2015 we announced our first "Call-to-arms to all designers", in order to get new banner for 2016, and we continue the same tradition since. During the last year we used all the images sent by the community to promote the TechNet Wiki and our work, and not just the image, which was selected as our new Banners. The winners of the best images contest for 2017 can be seen in the contest winners announcement blog here.

Some of the images we used during the last year:


How to Post your work?

Step 1: Create image according to the Banner Guidelines, or Logo Guidelines. You can create as many images as you want and we encourage you to do so. Moreover, you can upload and register several versions of the image as well.

IMPORTANT!
The name of the image is used as the image ID. Therefore it must be unique and follow this format:
<your name>_<unique number>.jpg
For example: RonenAriely_01.jpg

Step 2: Upload the image to the Facebook group for feedback. 

  • Image that will not be presented on Facebook, will not get into the contest, even if it is registered here!
  • Make sure that one of the team see the message and provide you with a private link for OneDrive.
  • Do not share your link! This is a personal link and anything that is done with the link is under your name.

Step 3: Once the image is ready, register the image on this page, by adding it to the right table bellow. On the same time upload the original image to our OneDrive, using the link provided for you in step 2 (If you prefer then you can send your file directly to Ronen ArielySyed Shanu, or Gaurav Aroraa in private). Each participate will get a link to upload and manage his images on OneDrive.

Step 4: New! We will give the community a chance to vote for the Images. The community votes will be taken under configuration and will guide us to the top images. 

Step 5: Finally one logo will be selected by our TechNet Wiki Council members.

Place your logo today and mark your history with our TechNet Wiki.

Banner Guidelines

The banners must fit for the TechNet Wiki Group on Facebook. Therefore you must follow Facebook guidelines for group's banners. Unfortunately, from time to time, Facebook changed their format including the size for cover photo, which is used by groups. The images which were created for last year do not fit for current format. Moreover, standard cover photo (personal page) is 851 x 315 pixels, but this size is not the same for cover photo on a group. The dimensions of a group photo are 820 x 428.

It is highly recommended to test your work on Facebook group, in order to see how it fits into the overall design of the page. For this purpose, you can open a new group on Facebook, for testing.

Logo Guidelines

The logo is a small square icon version, which should fit as logo for any purpose from stickers to T-shirt and online posts.

  • The Logo image should be about 56x56 pix.
  • The background must be one color, so we could make it transparent if needed (You can post a version which has transparent background).

Register your Banner here

  1. Add your image under the last image in the list
  2. Add the name of the image file (same as you use on OneDrive) using the format as explained above. Make the image file name a link to your Facebook profile.

* By default the image size in the article will be 550 PX. do not change this. You should upload the original image to OneDrive as well. We are going to use only the version on OneDrive, while the version here is for presentation/registration only,
