Sorry for the very late announcement this year!

Every entry that keeps to the rules will be part of the poll in which all forum members will get to decide which banner will be the winner.

Please read the rules, so your work is eligible.

Closing time is MIDNIGHT, Pacific Standard Time, when 18 December 2020 becomes 19 December 2020 so get your skates on!

Rules for the competition:

*The banner design should be Christmas themed as well as Avengers themed, but should not include overt religious elements.
*It must feature the words "THE AVENGERS" and "INTERNATIONAL FAN FORUM".
*Size MUST be 797x180 as per the current banner.
*Transparency is perfectly okay.
*Accepted file formats are: JPG, PNG, GIF.
(Ensure JPG files are high quality to avoid artifacts.)
*Animated GIFs are allowed, but if the words "THE AVENGERS" and "INTERNATIONAL FAN FORUM" appear later, the image may not loop. Make sure the file size does not exceed 1MB. We will mercilessly recompress any we judge to be too large.

*As many entries as you want, go crazy!
*Normal moderation rules will apply to all entries.
*Entries must be sent to xmasbanner@dissolute.com.au. (Please include your user name in the mail.)
*Any entries that are posted on the forum will be disqualified, as for the sake of fairness, all banners should be introduced at the same moment.
*Makers may not reveal which banners they made.
*Blatantly recycling someone else's entry from last year will also lead to disqualification but you may revisit themes of your own.
*Banner featured: December 24th until January 31st, events permitting.

By entering this competition you automatically agree that your entry can be used by this forum.

(These rules are not meant to stifle your creativity, but to make sure that all entries can be used.)

Schedule:
Competition opens: NOW
Last date for entries: 18 December
Poll opens: 18 December (ish...)
Poll closes: 23 December
Please feel free to ask us any questions or for our help and good luck!

It might be fun to choose a "best of" from all the years... who knows, the new one might win it!

Getting inspiration is the hardest part... looking at old ones wouldn't help either, I'd feel like I was copying them!
