Very hard to decide! I am going to have let them sink in and take a considered view... maybe aided by a mince pie and a small sherry Smile

All excellent entries, although seeing them all together I dismissed 7 of them straight away for one reason or another. It's down to a choice of just three for me, I shall sleep on it Smile

The one I like best isn't winning, yet, but stands a chance... it's a bit like watching a horse race while the "runners and riders" are still in progress!

Congratulations to Avengerholic for the runaway winner of this year's banner competition! I''ve had to optimise it a bit to shrink the file size as the forum now has a lower size limit.



Also, a hearty thanks to Darren, New Doberman, Rhonda and, err, myself for submitting great entries.

nice choice...of course, it's not the one I would have selected..but that's moot point. Sadly, only 14 votes ? especially given the size of the forum, and number of members interacting with each other. No matter what, glad to see another holiday banner....

I'd love to know who did which but maybe that's not etiquette... I thought all were of excellent quality and as far as I'm concerned they're all winners and part of my Christmas! The silhouettes in Stable Mews were my vote, atmosphere, character colo(u)r and nostalgia (with a hint of mystery) it's what the Avengers is all about for me.

yup...everyone was a winner...but there only could be one...unless, say they took turns rotating..every few days....perhaps in an alternative universe.

How exciting, I'm quite humbled considering there were two or three real corkers to choose from.

Congratulations, Avengerholic. I voted for yours.

What appealed to me was the more graphical and black and white approach.

I did number 2, I found inspiration rather lacking this year. I think I've used up all my ideas in previous years.

Some great entries.

There was a point when entry numbers out-numbered the votes but thankfully that improved. Smile

Thank you Darren, I was looking for something that had a festive look, was related to one of my favourite episodes, but didn't feature any of the characters. Personally I'd grown tired of seeing the leads featured every year.

I don't know if everyone wants to own up but Avengerholic did 1 & 9, Darren has said he did 2, and I did 5.

3,4,6, & 7 were all by the mysterious Mr Blonde and 8 & 10 were by Mr Pink.

I'll leave it up to them to reveal who they were but it's easy to work out, really.

They all look great. Unfortunately, I haven't been on line much recently so missed the opportunity to vote. If I had I'd have probably voted for 7, but it would have been a tough choice! The winner is great though.

Piers thanks for running the competition and the makers for their creativity.

1 is an excellent winner, stylish b&w.
2 I love for memorializing Honor and Diana
3, 6, 7 are my personal favourites,
but impressed by all of them.
