PostSubject: Banner Contest   Tue Sep 28, 2010 5:01 pm

We currently need a badass banner for our forums. So everyone right now the current prize will be 1600 microsoft points. we only have a first place prize but will have 2nd and 3rd place prizes. The contest runs until NOVEMBER 1ST, 2010 So get cracking on your photoshop skills, and creative is a plus. I will be needing 1 judge to help me on this contest depending on how many users enter we may need more, but I gave 2 months so there should be plenty of time..

Rules:

You may enter up to 3 banners, creative is a plus anything outside the box. Contest runs until November 1st, 2010.... You may use any software to create the banner, the most common is photoshop. Animated gif banners are cool also.

I'll judge, you don't want me entering this contest. I'd make your eyes bleed.

Alright, I've got two submissions for this contest for now. Thinking up a third and final one right now.



And my best work for a banner so far...

Is it just me or can no one else see the pictures you have up. It may just be me because my work locks down our network.

I'll have to check it out on my home PC. I'm on a computer all day at work, and when I get home the last thing I want to do is sit in front of the computer. How about my gamercard picture in my signature? I ask because I can see Hypersomniac's gamercard in his signature, but mine is still a red X.

I'm loving the new look. It's just so badass looking. Is this Jinn's work? Does this mean the banner contest is over? Cause I'd like to see it stay like this.

Cool

The new look is just another theme we applied for the time being.

Also I just got a $15 dollar gift card for iTunes

I don't use iTunes so I'm adding it as a choice for 1st prize
You can choose between the 1600 points or the iTunes gift card

I should have mentioned this earlier. The size I used, which seems like the exact size of the banner at the top of the Forum, was 960 x 230. So yeah. Have fun.

The current banner size is a very unusual 903x176. I would think there is some flexibility with what the size can be. I'll probably shoot for something around 900x200... although I might make the ratio even wider.


EDIT:
Here's my first banner. I turned the monitor red to match the current website color scheme. I could easily change it later if the website's scheme ever changes.


Click on it to see full-size!

Let me know what you think of it!

Dimensions are 1000x200, which is also something I can easily change if that doesn't work. I didn't put in the full-size because the 1000 width dimension messed with the entire site when it was in a post.

I know the monitor in my banner is a little grainy... I swear that's how the official Bungie artwork was, I think it's some kind of paintbrush effect. If anybody could provide me with a screenshot of a monitor in a similar position... I could get rid of that "graininess".
