Probably one of the most exciting contests is now upon us - the design for NEW BANNERS to appear at the top of each page. Whether you participate or not in the design, I'm sure you will still take a lot of interest in voting on the final outcome, as it will be the branding of AO for the coming 12 months.
Please see the last banner contest at http://www.animeonline.net/f82/offic...contest-22512/.
This contest is open to all members. Submit your submissions to this thread with a minimum of 5 banners per entry. The top voted banners will go into the banner rotation found at the top of AO.
Closing Date: Sunday Jan 6th 2008
:1st: Prize: Your name at the bottom of each page replacing "Anime Online Buttons by Trunks. ©" Trunks has kindly offered to have his name removed to make way for this contest.
Runner-Up (x2): Storm Hawks DVD and t-shirt.
Entry Bonus 1: Inclusion in the banner rotation at a later date. If all submissions are of high quality, then all submissions will be included in the rotation.
Entry Bonus 2: 100 credit points for all participants.
Now for the Rules
- Please add your final images (all of them) to this thread and to Banners - AO Gallery
- Image format can be either gif, png or jpg.
- Size: 863 x 162
- Must contain the words "Anime Online" and be based off anime / manga.
- Do not include your name or other branding on the image.
- Far right vertical line of your image MUST be a plain coloured line. That is, you must make your image fade into a plain colour on the right. Reason for this is that this plain colour will then stretch to the end of the page. If you take a look at the current banners being used, you can see how it fades out to a plain coloured vertical line.
Pretty simple rules right?
Also, a small favour I have but not a requirement, is if you could throw in a bonus Christmas banner for when this season comes around.
Voting will take place via a public poll.
This is a very exciting contest and I look forward to everyone's work.
