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)
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.

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.
