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: Tuesday 12th August.

With the Olympics very much in our mind, we've decided to make ' torches' this month's theme. You can use any Xtreme tool, mix vector and bitmap, 3D and 2D or even make it animated if you wish!
