Orlando Love 2010 Banner Challenge

January and February's Graphics Challenge will be the 2010 Board Banner Contest.

We'd like to thank Krazymoonkat, Avalon Mists, Josie and Nenya for their beautiful banners in last years Challenge. They were absolutely stunning!

It's that time of year again when we will be celebrating Orlando Love's 6th anniversary in February. Six years and we're still here. :D

In order to properly celebrate, we need your help. We need you to put your graphics talent to work and create us a new batch of board banners for 2010. The requirements are fairly simple and straightforward:
  1. The background colors coordinate or complement the board's colors. Now that we have three board background colors to choose from, it is your choice to make one banner which would coordinate with all three of the board colors (cerulean, bronze and greenleaf), or you can make three of the same banner, just in different colors.

  2. The banner should be 990 pixels wide by 150 pixels high.

  3. The banner should include the text "Legolas Greenleaf's Orlando Love" (without the quotation marks).

We will choose three banners for use throughout the year. The three winning entries will be selected by the Moderating team.

Entries must be submitted to admin@elflady.com by Sunday, February 28th, 2010. Please limit submissions to five entries per person.

Thank you and Good Luck!

I love this time of year - some gorgeous stuff.....and hopefully more coming!

The 2010 Board Banner Contest is officially closed now.

Thank you to everyone who has submitted entries :hug:

This year we have decided to move away from the tradition of having Our lovely Owners/Administrators and SuperMods having all the fun of choosing the winners and let all board members have a chance to vote on the winners.

Because we would like to have 3 separate winners, the voting will be done in two stages. First we will Choose our favorite entry for each artist and then the winning banners from those polls will go against each other to determine our 3 winners.

I hope to get the first round of voting started up today. Don't forget to vote in all five of our round one polls!
*we also have one "single" entry that will make the final poll 6 choices.

Ok, I have all the entries organized and ready to create polls. I thought I would post them all here also for a look at all the hard work together.

Aren't they FANTASTIC! All of them- just stunning, thank you to everyone who took part and BEST of luck in the Football league style voting!

Krazymoonkat March 1st, 2010 05:52 PM

Sorry for the delay everyone.

The poll options are only allowing up to 300 characters per option and I have to re-think my set up to show everything.

I will be back in a few min.

chocolover March 1st, 2010 06:23 PM

That will be the hardest voting ever! *big sigh* I know why you girls want to let the users vote. :lol:
Wonderful work everyone! :worship: :clap:

when does round one end Kat?

Krazymoonkat March 1st, 2010 08:10 PM

Hummm....good question, Nuit.

I left the polls open because I was not sure how long we would need......why not keep them open for a week. That will give everyone fair chance to see them and vote.

Tabitha's cat March 1st, 2010 08:50 PM
