*Submissions Closed*

Here we go again, another banner contest. Anatotitan will be taking care of the blog side, and we will only be asking for a forum banner. She will not be be allowed to participate in this contest however.

The requirements are:
- Dimensions MUST be 800 120.
- Content must be related to Megaman
- Must mention TheSpeedGamers
- Marathon date, length and charity is optional (August 14th, 72 Hours (3 Days), Earthday.net)
- Image MUST be PNG-24, and keep any layered source file.

Submissions must be in by midnight PST (11:59PM) on Monday, July 20th. Late submissions will not be accepted, and only one entry is allowed. A vote will be held over the following four days, and the new banner will be uploaded at the end of the Final Fantasy Marathon. If votes are close the top winners will be cycled.


Further, for anonymity, you should send your banner to fanart@thespeedgamers.com
Include your forum name please.

DO NOT post it anywhere on the forum, or give a preview. This is to keep the final vote as fair and impartial as possible.

*You may change your submission by sending a new email. The most recent entry will be used.*

*Submissions Closed*

To everyone these details are most important so double check all submissions. If your submissions do not follow these details, they will most likely be disqualified.

- Dimensions MUST be 800 120.
- Image MUST be PNG-24, and keep any layered source file.

What exactly is png-24? Whenever I save pics as png, I don't see any mention of 24.

In Photoshop there are two options for PNG, one being PNG-8...the other PNG-24. PNG-8 uses less colors than PNG-24.

If you just normally save as a PNG...it's more than likely PNG-24 by default.

What about PNG-32? I have that option as well.

Whoever made the third one is very talented with whatever program they used. A lot of the other ones are good too, my second favourite would have to be the 8-Bit one :).

Thanks guys. Just got back from New Orleans, and I'm trying to catch up with all the madness I missed. XD

Also if anyone is wondering, I used Adobe Fireworks and Photoshop to make the banner.
