BANNER OF THE WEEK COMPETITION #18


Welcome to the 18th PE2K Banner of the Week Competition. After checking with both Matt and Gaia, I have permission to get this going once more. If you have any comments or wish to inquire about either the theme or another aspect of the competition, please don't hesitate to drop me a PM. I will do my best to respond to it as quickly as possible.

So here’s the gist:

This contest will take place weekly. Each week, a new banner topic, with certain parameters, will be established, and any member may enter, but only a maximum of 2 banners. You will have 7 days to complete and submit a banner. After the deadline has expired, all legitimate banners will be posted in a poll, which will be open for voting by every member of the forum for 7 days as well. You may vote for yourself, but only if you truly believe that the quality of your banner surpasses that of the other entries.

The guidelines for your banner will include the following: theme, dimensions, other necessities (Pokemon-themed?), and use of stock images (Stock images are images that you did not create, but that you received from a stock resource. Please follow all rules of stock usage by the website, such as giving credit, and give me a link to where you found the stock with your submission, so I know it is legitimate). If you wish to submit a theme for a following competition, please feel free to PM me. Not all suggestions will be used, but I greatly appreciate the help!


THIS WEEK’S COMPETITION

Theme: Vector
Width: 300 to 500 pixels
Height: 70 to 200 pixels
Description: From vectoring brushes to custom shapes to the elusive pen tool, vector is the use of shapes and lines in one's art to either draw a picture or to portray your own take on it. Vector is open ended and freestyle, so I look forward to seeing some interesting pieces.
Stock: Allowed

Please follow the week’s them as best as you can. Any banner straying too far from the theme will be nulled, and I will be the judge of what is appropriate. Also, if a banner does not fit the dimensions, it will be nulled. I do not wish to see anything inappropriate for the forums. Please follow ALL forum rules in the creation of your banner.




DUE DATE

This weeks entries are due next Friday, 16th November. Depending on the conditions of the competition, this date may change, and I will keep you posted on any changes made. Voting will start when the due date is reached (may also change under certain circumstances).


And an extra note from VT:

“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 program they are using. ”

ALL DISCUSSION FOR THE BANNER OF THE WEEK COMPETITION WILL OCCUR IN THE BANNER OF THE WEEK DISCUSSION THREAD!

Hope it's not too late to enter. It's only 11:10, and if .AzureLight enters, I'm sure I can.
It's okay if I can't, but I'm going to post my entry...

All right. ^^;
Sorry for bothering you.

I'll look forward to entering the next one.
Also, I can't seem to find the discussion thread, I take it it hasn't been posted yet?
