Congratulations to our November winner, blaineo!

This contest is to decide the new global header image (will show on the home page and all forums except bleach, dgrayman, naruto and one piece) for display on December 1st through December 31st, 2007.

Contest closes on November 30th.

Major bonus points if your banner is Holiday themed! Special contest Prizes added, see bottom of post.

Please look over the rules below.

THIS THREAD IS ONLY FOR POSTING YOUR SUBMISSIONS. UPLOAD THEM TO A FREE HOST LIKE IMAGESHACK AND POST IT IN A REPLY BELOW. ALL DISCUSSION ON SUBMISSIONS SHOULD TAKE PLACE IN THE SEPERATE THREAD LOCATED HERE.

Rules for Entering:
  • Only submit pieces YOU have drawn / colored. If you're found to have submitted another fan's work, your entry will be disqualified.
  • Submit either an original drawing (preferably colored), or a colored page from original manga line art. Compilations of art from official stock colored pages will be accepted as well, though they stand little chance of winning against original work.
  • Design your piece to fit the "widescreen" nature of the header (click here to see the size to get an idea). The space you have is 800x200 pixels, the height of the canvas can be adjusted in special cases for really good artwork. Art that can not be cropped or resized to fit the header will not be considered.
  • Submissions from any date are considered, it doesn't matter if you made it 3 years ago or yesterday, as long as it looks nice!
  • Only mainstream manga have a real good shot at winning. Don't let that stop you though, if your drawing is really awesome it can still get the spot.
  • If you sign your work, please do it in the bottom right corner of the image, or at least close to it. If you don't sign your work we add a credit somewhere on the header for you.
The winning entry will be judged by the administrators and moderators of the site. In the event that a majority vote cannot be reached by our staff, a public vote will be held. Entries not selected as winners are free to be resubmit for the next month's contest. Though I'm sure we'll get several great submissions, if we don't end up getting anything worthy of showing off on the site for a month, we reserve the right to void this contest and remain with our original header throughout December.

Get noticed by having your work seen by over 700,000 unique people over the course of the month. If you have a talented friend who would be interested, let them know about this contest!
