Holiday Banners Competition '17
« on: December 04, 2016, 08:12:48 pm »
Once again, it's that time of the year for our annual Holiday Banners competition.
You can submit your banners with a New Year/Winter motif here...

Requirements

  ● Submit in .png (lossless) format
  ● Width 980px
  ● Height 120px
  ● Matches site!
  ● Use the Joyful Juliana font.
  ● Keep at least 100px clear on the left (RSS feed button).
  ● If the composition allows it put the image to the left and the text to the right.
  ● Tell us which anime it's from and the character(s) name.
  ● Provide link to your (tracker) profile so we can give you proper credit.
  ● We want some diversity, so try not to overuse old stock images that were previously accepted, it lowers your chance of it being accepted.

Like before, you'll have more freedom if you wish to experiment, however try to keep the banners consistent. That goes for the font and the background colour scheme.
New Year motif banners will be kept in rotation until the end of January, 2017 - so feel free to alter your banner slightly and re-submit it in the regular banner submission thread if you want to keep it in permanent rotation.


Best banners will be awarded - 2000 Bonus points for every banner we choose (No limits to number of submissions).
Same as last year, banners we like the most will receive extra points.
Submissions will be accepted starting today and until 24. December.
Happy Holidays, and have fun~

-BakaBT Team-

Tips are pretty much as last year and the year before, so I'll be an even lazier bastard and just repost my repost of my repost of my repost:

- Keep clear requirement is not compulsory, just compensate for the RSS button overlaying the banner or incorporate it in the design.
- Do not overuse existing renders and themes, there are plenty of new shows to choose from.
- Actual banner width is 970px, so bear that in mind if your design relies on a frame of sort.
- As for additional text - Happy New Year, Happy Holidays and similar are accepted, but we're steering clear of Merry Christmas and similar religious holiday greetings as we're trying to be neutral.

However we are tolerating Christmas themed banners, Christmas tree, gifts etc. as it is tied to New Year spirit.

For the general idea you can also check out banners we accepted previous years '16, '15, '14, '13, '12, '11, and '10.

No, you are supposed to leave an area of 100px from the left side without putting anything crucial (characters/text) so that the RSS button can be overlaid.

Vocaloid should be fine. I think we had a few of those in previous competitions.

Normal banners go in the appropriate thread.

So, let's see.

• Character: Kafuu Chino

This one would look far better if you made the "BakaBT" text filled with white. It doesn't look bad by any means right now, but it feels a bit empty. Maybe making the "anime community" part bigger too might make it look good.

Add a bit of stroke to the text, like 2-3px maybe. It feels a bit uncomplete the way it is now.

Good luck to everyone!

That would make sense. My tools are a bit limited as I have to use Gimp instead of Photoshop for the time being, so I can't remember how to do everything on Gimp. That, and I was up around 4 am doing it haha, so I'll probably touch it up today.

Edit - Thank you for the feedback though, it's highly appreciated! ^_^

Character is Senjougahara Hitagi from Koimonogatari.

Edit: I guess I really did stay up too late, because for some reason I had put "BakatBT" on there. Fixed it.
