2008 Valentine Banner Contest

Post by Tiff » Tue Jan 15, 2008 12:47 am

It's almost Valentine's day, and so it's time to begin the Valentine Banner contest!

This year, I want you all to create a banner depicting love/romance/etc between any two characters OTHER than the inner/outer senshi.

This can include but is not limited to: Chibiusa (who, yes, I know is a senshi, but not one of the main inner/outer), villains, side characters (such as Naru/Umino, Motoki/Reika, etc), and family.

It can include couples in love, crushes, unrequited love, etc.

Rules:

1) Your banner must contain two characters OTHER than the inner/outer senshi depicted in some sort of romance. It does NOT have to be pink or red...valentine's day/love can mean any color =P

2) Banner must be 300 x 137 in size and in GIF, PNG, or JPG format. You may submit up to 2.

3) You are allowed to use brushes, backgrounds, and edit any original images. Photoshop filters are fine, and I have no problem if you want to add extra pictures/clip parts. If you use a brush, credit the brushmaker in your post. Please be careful about text and fonts. I MUST be able to read it.

4) The banner needs to say "Sailor Moon Uncensored Forums" or some form of it (shortening it to SMU Forums is fine) and have the url, "http://www.smuncensored.com" (or smuncensored.com, etc) on it. This must be done in a readable font (this includes size, style, and color)

5) In order to enter, you must have been a member for at least two weeks and an ACTIVE POSTER AS OF TODAY. Anyone who joins the forums after this is NOT ELIGIBLE. This isn't to be mean, but I don't want people joining just for the contest, and we have too many members who have never posted or have only posted once or twice. If you are unsure as to whether you qualify as an "active member", contact me.

OTHER GUIDELINES:

1) Please try to use a readable font, both type and color. I cannot stress this enough.

2) Creativity <3~

THE DEADLINE IS SATURDAY, JAN 26, 2008.

I would like you to upload the banner to your webspace (if you have one) and paste the link here, so that everyone may view your creation. If you do not have webspace, email it to me, and I'll upload it for you. DO NOT POST THE IMAGE ITSELF HERE.

Prizes are as follows:

1st: Banner displayed Feb 3-16, avatar made by me, and a $20 gift certificate to any online store of your choice ^_^

2nd: Banner displayed Jan 27-Feb 2, avatar made by me.

3rd: Banned displayed Feb 17-29, avatar made by me.

Have fun, and I hope we get a lot of entries! If you have any questions, let me know. ^^

Nice banner. Who's the girl, though? I can't recognize her, probably because I haven't watched Sailor Moon in a while. She reminds me of Nehelenia and Queen Beryl.

Actually its Luna in human form and the doctor/scientist she falls in love with cant remember his names I think its Kekaru?

And id better get to scanning some of my manga for this
"Have you been half asleep? And have youve heard voices?
I hear them calling my name."
Is this the sweet sound, that calls the young sailors?
The voice maybe one in the same.
Ive heard it too many times to ignore it,
its something that I sposed to be..
Someday we''''ll find it, the rainbow connection
The lover, the dreamer, and me..."

Okay, well, we only had three entries (yet another disappointment..should I stop doing contests, people? There's no point if hardly anybody responds), so everybody places this time.

1st - Butterscotch
2nd - SeiUsa
3rd - Senshi of Vision (villain banner)

Congrats to ya'll, and thanks so much for entering! I'll have your avatars within a day or so.

Butterscotch, drop me a PM letting me know from which online venue you'd like your $20 to come from.
