Welcome everyone to the 1st Banner of the Week Competition! =D
This contest was held in the past, so therefore this is not the first one ever held. But The contest is out to a fresh start and there have been some changes made to the contest. So we'll just start over and call this the 1st one ever. =P
For those who have never participated in this contest, here's what it's all about.
As you can see by the title, this contest will take place weekly, unless the activity of the forum forces me to change that. So contestants will have 7 days to enter. After entries are no longer accepted, a voting poll will open in which members can vote for their favorite banner. Voting will also last for 7 days. The winner of the contest will have their banner displayed in the Banner of the Week Competition Museum.
Banner makers will be given guidelines to follow in making the banner. This includes height and width of the banner as well as theme. The theme of the banner will be determined by myself. But any theme suggestions should be PM'd to me if you feel that it would be a good enough theme for the contest. There is no gaurantee that I will use your theme idea, and by sending me the theme, you give me the right to change it to my liking.
I am also thinking of having requested themes. If a member needs a banner for their thread (ex: requesting a banner for the rules thread of the forum) then they can PM me and I will put them on the list. This is still undecided though and further discussion on this should be put in the Banner of the Week Discussion
