Banner Contest - Winter Holidays!
(Since just Christmas might be offensive ^^)
Winter Holidays Banner Contest! 

All is Brawl will display a special themed banner for 1 week to celebrate the Winter Holidays.

Specifics:  


1. Banner must be 964x175 pixels.   
2. Banner should have a seasonal color scheme. However it does not have to complement the orange theme.
3. Banner should be 100% related to Smash and represent AiB.  
4. The logo should be displayed near the middle of the banner in a decent size. You may use this logo or create your own: [click here for logo] (original, not rendered )  
        [click here for logo v2]  (rendered and edited by Spellman)


Rules:  


1. Each entrant may submit up to two entries. Once a banner is submitted, it cannot be changed.   
2. The banner may be a redesign of an older idea of the entrant’s. However, do not submit old work.   
3. Entrants will be penalized accordingly for plagiarism, faked votes, and other inappropriate conduct.  
4.
The process in which the winner is decided will depend on how many
entries we receive. It will most likely involve public voting as well
as admin panel selection.   
5. The admin panel reserves the right to rule that the banner will not be changed for this banner contest if
the qualities of the banners do not meet the required quality.   
6.
Contest entry must be sent via private message to me (Zolga) with
“Winter Banner Contest Entry” as the subject before December 17th, 2009
at 11:59 pm (Eastern Standard Time).

Hey Zolga, do you know if badges from the last contest are going to be put up any time soon? Martel said it here:

Quote (originally posted by LadyMartel):
To see the name of the person who made the banner, just look at the name of of the banner. Thank to all those who participated. We hope you will join our future banner contests as well.

Badges will be awarded sometime within the next two weeks to all those with legitimate entries.

Considering the Halloween banner made by Aberz was black and darkish, I'd say it doesn't matter.

Question
Where is a place to upload so the size doesn't get downgraded? I seemed to put it on tinypic but it looked like the size got smaller =[
Also are banners allowed to be animated? Or are you kinda staying away from that kind of stuff?
Thank you ^_^"

Animated signatures aren't allowed in SOTW so probably not
They might make an exception if you use animated snow, though

imo Imageshack is the way to go.

Just don't use photobucket....;-; it's like saving your artwork in jpeg format, it's just devastating

The ONLY problem I've ever encountered or heard of was that PB will resize really big images. Otherwise I've never heard of any change in quality.

I use PB, sometimes it tend to re-size random large things. But, if doesn't take away quality. O.o

I sent mines =D

By the way, I tested the difference between a Photobucket image and the original
and both images are the same. So, Photobucket does not reduce quality. icon_smile
