Welcome everyone to the 2nd Banner of the Week Competition! =D

This week's contest is part of the 2005 Winter Festival! That means the winner gets $2000 for the URPG!

Overview

For those who have never participated in this contest, here's what it's all about.

As you can see by the title, this contest will take place weekly, unless the activity of the forum forces me to change that. So contestants will have 7 days to enter. After entries are no longer accepted, a voting poll will open in which members can vote for their favorite banner. Voting will also last for 7 days. The winner of the contest will have their banner displayed in the Banner of the Week Competition Museum.

Banner makers will be given guidelines to follow in making the banner. This includes height and width of the banner as well as theme. The theme of the banner will be determined by myself. But any theme suggestions should be PM'd to me if you feel that it would be a good enough theme for the contest. There is no gaurantee that I will use your theme idea, and by sending me the theme, you give me the right to change it to my liking.

I am also thinking of having requested themes. If a member needs a banner for their thread (ex: requesting a banner for the rules thread of the forum) then they can PM me and I will put them on the list. This is still undecided though and further discussion on this should be put in the Banner of the Week Discussion (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=12563) thread.

Rules and Guidelines

This weeks rules include the following:

Anyone Can Enter!
Theme: Winter
Height: 100
Width: 400
Theme Description: For this week you can make a banner based on anything winter related. The following specifics for this particular week are required for this banner:
Text: N/A
Stock: Allowed
Prize: $2000 for URPG

Other Rules
Please follow the theme as best you can. Anything that does not follow the theme or the dimensions specified will not be permitted to be entered into the voting portion of the contest. Anything below the dimensions specified will be accepted but anything above will not.

Anything obscene such as pornographic images, hentai, or anything that violates the rules of this forum will not be permitted. People who enter such material will be reported to the authorites of the forum and will be dealt with accordingly.

This contest is not Pokemon Related, therefore you do not have to have something pokemon related in your banners unless it is required in the theme.

The Maximum amount of entries is 20. After that amount has been reached, no more entries will be accepted. This week, two entries are allowed per person.

Entries Due

This weeks entries are due next Saturday, December 24th. This may change over time so check back here for any changes in the due date. Voting will also start Next Saturday and will end Saturday, December 31st.

Everyone try your best and don't hold back because of your current art program. Not everyone needs photoshop to be a good artist, and everyone's entries will be accepted no matter what progam they are using. Have fun! And now let the contest begin!

I've been working on one.

But Nef... By "N/A Text", do you mean none allowed? Or it's allowed, but not necessary?

It's allowed but not necessary. ;)

I don't know of a banner that doesn't use text though. =P

Anyway, get to work people! Remember, the prize is $2000 for URPG. I'll see if I can get to mine soon. -_-

The theme fits, but the dimensions do not. It has to be 400x100.

Well, here's my entry. Took a few hours to make so you guys better like it... or else!! Mwahahahah!!! :twisted: Lol. I thought I'd animate something too even though I usually don't do animations. Dang, it took forever to get the snowflakes to loop like that. There's the link below and it's in my siggy too. Well, enjoy! ^_^

I wish I could enter this... I made it for a friend of mine..

It's legal in this thread, lol. But I'll send it anyway. (It's the wrong size anyway).

Good luck to you all, as I'll may not be here to see who wins.

Lol, thanks. ^_^ Yeah, yours was awesome too. I think it took an animation to compete with it. Plus, I've always wanted to animate something falling from the sky. Rain would be even harder to make especially to make it look realistic. O_o

Ok well today is the last day to enter. There probably won't be anymore entries since everyone is probably getting ready for tomorrow. But I'll still leave this open until later or maybe even tomorrow.
