2012 Banner Contest
It's another year and it's obvious that we're long overdue for new banners, so break out your renders and editors and start creating new fun ideas for our site's banners. I present to you All is Brawl's 2012 Banner Contest.


Everyone is more than welcome to enter the contest and submit an entry. Winners will have their banners displayed on the site and badges will be handed out to participants in recognition of the effort you'll undoubtedly be putting into your entries.

Specifics:


1. Banner must be 964x175 pixels.
2. The banner should have a color scheme that compliments/fits with the skin it is for.
3. The banner does not have to be completely Smash related (doesn't have to have the Smash Symbol everywhere/all Melee/Brawl renders etc)
4. Preferably 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(per skin). Once a banner is submitted, it cannot be changed.
2. The banner MUST be new work. I'd like to see what the site can do.
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 banners will not be changed for this banner contest if the quality of the banners are not up to our standards.
6. Contest entry must be submitted via private message to Eklipse with “2012 Banner Contest Entry - (Skin that it is for)” as the subject by 11:59 PST on Sunday April 15th, 2012.

As you work on your banner, you may post it in this thread to gather opinions from other artists.
Art District staff and Content Team members will also be offering their opinions on banners. Just PM myself or Fandangox with a work in progress banner with the subject “Banner Contest ADVICE.” We will share these with the other staff members for more constructive feedback.

 

EDIT: There's a new skin in the works and it just needs real banners.

Neal wants to add the "soon" to be pink skin to the banner contest. Here's a screenshot. If possible, could it be noted that the banners don't need to be just feminine (lots of hearts, flowers, bunch of images of Princess Peach, etc.). Just to be mindful that guys would like to use the skin too. Thanks.


Quote (originally posted by nealdt):
Send a screenshot to one of the people running the contest and ask them to include it. Just let them know we'll be adding it once the banners are completed.  For advanced search, yeah it's something I always meant to fix but never did. Maybe one day...

Just a general reminder, the skins that this contest is for include and ARE LIMITED TO:
Orange
Blue
Red/Black
Mewtwo
Rising Sun
Pink 

Please don't send me submissions for a skin that doesn't exist.

Welp, it's that time of year, again.

I'll probably join this and try something, but I should watch more tutorials since I've been slacking off.

This is gonna be awesome, I'll really try to make one that looks more "banner-like" this time since I've been hearing that AiB's banners haven't been the most impressive these past few cycles.

Just curious, how will these banners be judged? Is it by voting? Or will an admin decide? icon_surprised

Apparently this needs clarification.

This contest is for banners on the currently existing skins.

I'm not adding a new skin.

Or I should hold a banner contest because that's more fun than contacting a single user.
