Well I had an idea for a weekly banner competition kind of like the Smeargle's art challenge. But this is for banners only. I Pm'd HKim about the idea and he approved it. But it is going to be every other week since some people have a hard time meeting the deadline of a weekly competition. This thread will just be for discussion to see if you guys have any ideas for it before it is underway.

Here are the basic rules of the contest so far:

1) there will be a specified banner size every contest.
2) there will be a specific theme for every contest.

That's about it. Oh and one more thing: The banners do not have to be about pokemon. It all depends on the theme. So the theme can vary from anything, as well as the size.

The winner will be determined by voting and then will be displayed in a museum.

The whole thing is very similiar to the Smeargle's art challenge but not pokemon related.

I haven't come up with a name for it yet so if you guys have any ideas for it feel free to post it.

Any suggestions on this is greatly appreciated and will contribute to PE2K. :wink:

Well I was thinking of having the theme of the first contest be: The header banner. So people would have to compete to see who can make the best banner for the competition.

But I wanted some suggestions on how to improve it and stuff before it officially started.

You should specify if animation and stock images are allowed.

I was thinking of that but I wasn't sure if anyone would go for the idea. But Sure why not.

I have NO clue what stock images are, so I'm guessing it has something to do with photoshop, which I, obviously, do not have.

So I entered THIS lousy attempt at a banner..

Stock images are images that you put on a banner. Err..at least I think that's the complete definition. :oops:

Anyway I am glad to see some people entering. :happy: Great job btw on that banner TMTS.

I always thought of stock images as images that you find on the web and paste them into your image.

Yeah that's probably it. I'm not completely sure though.

That's what I thought you meant.

Anyway, Seeing as this hasn't been done by me, it is not of my concern... I never use stock images... they're always all fugly and GIF-ish... :tongue:

I think the competitions are too easy with just a required theme.There should be a special requirement too like , special border, vector art, greyscale, ect.

aye, I too, would agree with stiffer competition

I suggested something like this for the war, except for the trivia/rp sections, cept nobody seems to want to make it more difficult, atleast in the war


greyscale appeals to me the most though, vector art.. eh not so much, atleast in a banner. Special borders sound good at first, but they end up looking disgusting, except for tech, which is very dull now, and grunge, which doesn't even look like a border

but even greyscale, seriously most of the pieces ARE greyscale with a color balance



if I get the fan art judge pos. I got some other ideas, that don't apply to banners though

Sorry for double posting.

Anyway I am running out of Theme ideas for the contest. So I am allowing the members to give some suggestions for a theme. Members are now aloud to post theme ideas and I'll pick one for the contest. I won't accept just any theme though. If there aren't any suggestion, or at least not any good ones, then I'll have to come up with one on my own. =P
