With nearly two months until Christmas, the Ministry is getting in early this year.

Every entry that keeps to the rules will be part of the poll in the days before Christmas 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, 14th of December, 2014



    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 "THE INTERNATIONAL FAN FORUM".
    *Size must be 551 X 100 pixels at least and 676 X 120 at most and must have the rectangle shape as the current banner.
    * HOWEVER, transparency is perfectly okay.
    *Accepted file formats are: JPG, PNG, GIF.
    (Ensure JPG files are high quality to avoid being grainy.)
    *Animated GIFs are allowed, but if the words "THE AVENGERS" and "THE INTERNATIONAL FAN FORUM" appear later, the image may not loop. Make sure the file size does not become too large!
    *No more then three entries per person.
    *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 that they entered or which banners they made.
    *Blatantly recycling (someone else's) entry from last year will also lead to disqualification.
    *Banner featured: December 21st until January 31st


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: October 30th
Last date for entries: December 14th
Poll opens: December 15th
Poll closes: December 20th

Please feel free to ask us any questions or for our help and good luck!

Will the polling be done with approval voting (i.e. allow people to vote for as many or as few as they wish)?

Looking at the comments from the previous competition, it seemed that people had to mentally choose between two very good entries. Using approval voting would alleviate such a problem.

Good idea, Beta, but we would have to use something other than the built-in polling system of the forum if we went down that path.

Now I'm worried. There have been precisely ZERO entries so far.

If you have sent me an entry already and for some reason I haven't received it, please get in touch ASAP.
