The Xara Outsider contest is for the entertainment of your fellow Outsider readers and of course the glory � but we�ve also added an incentive in the form of Xara or MAGIX software of your choice up to the value of $100 (or a credit to your Xara account for use against future purchases). Check out the MAGIX options here.

Entries must be created in Xara Xtreme and entirely your own work. Simply submit the .xar below. In next month�s issue we will display a shortlist of our choice for Outsider readers to vote on. The deadline for entries is: Friday 18th July.

Our contest theme this month is 3D. So any Xtreme image featuring the 3D graphic prominently - it could involve text or photos like our tutorial examples, but the choice is yours. For some truly inspirational examples from a 3D master check out the 3D text examples on Shiny Binary created by Nik Ainley and some other fantastic examples using his techniques on youthedesigner (these are done with Xara3D + various other graphics tools, but of course you can now use Xtreme!).
