Valentine's Day is our favorite time of year to come up with fun and exciting community-centric contests!

Here's the challenge: We want to see you immortalized in huge pixels! Using the contest tool below and only solid colors, create a self-portrait. Portray yourself as creatively as you'd like! It can be an accurate representation, an aspect of your personality, how you picture yourself — anything you want, as long as it embodies you.

And the reward is big! One-hundred winners will receive a set of ultra awesome Emoticon Stress Balls, courtesy of deviantWEAR.

Dazzle us, wow us, and put yourself in pixels! It's as easy as clicking the pretty squares. Try it! It's fun!

Weird! I didn't even realise that this page was different than the winners' one. I always thought that they just updated the page. I guess it makes sense since this one has about 1,000,000 comments saying "When are the winners announced?", etc., etc.
