I'm sponsering a banner design contest. Only one winning entry would be accepted. The winning participant would win 1 million gold (might increase if I can bring myself to fork out more...). The banner would be used as a sort of title for Clan Unforgivenis (clan 46) webpage.

Specifications for banner:

Background/Main Colours: The banner must be mostly black or look good against black. (I would decide what looks good)

Theme: The banner must have a dark and "evilish" theme. You get the idea. Please no blood and gore. An example would be a scene of desolation or something.

Wording: Wording must be theme appropriate (duh!). The banner must contain the words "Clan Unforgiven". Additional words added for effect must not be more prominent then the "Clan Unforgiven"

Size: MUST be around 522x120. Give or take a few pixels.

Originality: Must be original. No copying.

Note: The website's background is black. So make your banner sits well on black.

I hope these rules do not limit your creativity. If you feel the need to bend the rules, please do so if you think it really suits the banner. Please send your entries to shangqian@yahoo.com.sg or email/imail me a URL (no pranks please) at which I can view your complete entry. In your email, leave "Banner Contest Entry" as your subject line. That's all and good luck.

Also, animated Flash movies for the banner are also accepted.

Guidelines for Flash movies.
- No looping movies where big changes the the banner occur.
- Looping movies are accepted if the purpose is to animate any minor effects while the movie is playing. (Animated text like sparkling, or slight picture animation, etc)

Yes. But I'm not going to release it publicly yet cos it's still very messy.

Can the people who plan to take part post a response here? I'm getting the impression that no one is interested :(

Is 2 million and a restring coin pretty enough to attract the creative and talented? :P

For people who don't know Flash, jpg, png formats are also accepted. However good use of flash is an advantage. (Good jpg or png picture is also an advantage).

Flash is not the devil. Frontpage is the devil, Flash is just Frontpage's personal love slave.

There were some enquires about the blood and gore rule. I understand that some people want a few drops/spatter of blood for effect. Thats fine with me if kept in moderation. So the bottomline is blood's fine. Gore is not.
