Pixelpalooza is an annual forum for all icon artists (iconists, as we like to call them) to strut their stuff and show how much talent is really out there. The main purpose of the contest is to energize the Macintosh icon community and generate a lot of fun in the process. But we also give away very cool prizes as well.

Because the Iconfactory is so busy with custom icon design and software development for the Mac and for the iPhone the contest is currently on hiatus for an indefinite time. We want to bring Pixelpalooza back and are continially evaluating ways to make that happen.

For now, please enjoy browsing our archive of the past winners. All sets are available for download over at our file server. Thank you!
