Now that the contest is live and underway, we welcome you to download our participation sticker for your story cover. This is completely optional, but a great way to show others you're working on an Open Novella Contest story.
You can download the sticker here.
(As more stickers become available, they will also be posted in this chapter. For now, only the participation sticker is downloadable.)
Here's a quick guide on how to add contest stickers to your story cover to show the community you're taking part!
If you're on on PC...
You can either use photo-editing software like Photoshop or GIMP, or you can use web pages like Canva.com to quickly add your sticker.
Option 1 - Using photo-editing software:
1. Open your cover in Photoshop or GIMP.
2. Drag and drop the sticker onto your canvas (it comes with a transparent background, so there's no need to cut or erase anything).
3. Scale, rotate and move the sticker around until you're happy with how it looks.
4. Save the file and upload as a new cover to Wattpad.
Option 2 - Using a photo-editing website:
1. Open Canva.com or some other page that allows you to edit photos online.
2. Open your cover or create a new canvas in the size 512x800 pixels and drop your cover image on there.
3. Drag and drop or upload the sticker image to Canva and then drag it onto your canvas.
4. Scale, rotate and move the sticker around until you're satisfied with how it looks.
5. Download the image and upload as a new cover to Wattpad.
If you're on a mobile device...
1. There are mobile apps like Pixlr or PicsArt that you can use to edit your cover.
2. Download one of those apps from the App Store/Play Store and install it on your device.
3. Open your cover inside the app.
4.Tap the option 'double exposure' or 'add image/layer'.
5. Add the sticker on top of your cover image (it comes with a transparent background so there's no need to cut or erase anything).
6. Scale, rotate and move the sticker around using your fingertips until you're happy with how it looks.
