M E R R Y C H R I S T M A S !

Wooo, and Its another year so Its time for another Christmas Artwork Challenge!

Anyone can participate in this challenge whether they are a great artist, or just starting out. The contest will consist of two sections.
They will be banners, and larger peices. Their will be a winner for each section in the end.

For the banner challenge, you have from the 1st (today), to the 10th.
Then for the larger artwork, you will have from the 10th to the 20th. A maximum of 2 entires each can be submitted.
After this time, the two different catergory entries will be put into 2 seperate polls, and people can vote up until Christmas eve (midnight).
I will set the poll to close British time, so be warned people. The winner will officially be named Christmas day.

So what can and can't I enter?

Can:

- Banners (obviously)
- Large Art (obviously)
- Drawn art whether it be in the form of banners or large art.
- Sprite banners
- Sprite themed large art
- Computer edited drawn art
- Vector art
- Pretty much anything

Can't:

- Just plain sprites
- Trainer cards
- Anything in the nature of the above.

The set size for banners is a height of 80-250 pixels, and a width of 300-500 pixels.

The maximum size for Large art is 1024 x 768, and the minimum 500 x 500.

Last year Mario won first place in the Large art contest, and I believe Dragon Hunter in the banners. ;]

SO, LET THE BANNER CONTEST BEGIN! 1st-10th. Deadline is 12:00am, British time.

Here are some examples of last years entries :wink::

Sounds fun! I'll start working. Just a question, do we only have one entry? Also, you might want to add who approved the contest.

It was a big decision to make the letters in those little pixel letter things, but I believe it was neccesary.

If we submit 2 and then want to swap one can we do that?

Callum
12-08-2007, 06:37 PM
Ok, all entries added. I'm going to have two reduce the limit of entries to 1 entry, due to the fact that the poll cannot take more than 20 entries.

Once you've submitted entries, no swapping.

2 Days left for banners!
