    With the Holiday Season fast approaching again, we want to celebrate it with everyone JC style.

    It gives us great pleasure to announce the JC 2003 Happy Holidays Banner contest!

    Here is last year's banner winner:

    <p align=center><img src=http://www1.theforce.net/jc/icons/winterholidays/scheme.gif><p>

    We are taking submissions for Holiday Season themed banners from Friday, 14 November - Thursday, 18 December. We're opening the contest up to anyone and everyone.

    There will be just ONE winner, chosen by a panel of moderators from the north pole. The winning theme will be applied across the whole JC (not including FanForce boards) between 10 PM board time on Sunday December 21st to Friday night January 2 - our week of Holiday festivities.

    We are not going to announce the winner prior to December 21st, so you will just have to log in to see the winning design on that day. :)

    You can post your entries publically in this thread for advice or suggestions. Send your final entry links to [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=224608]Raven[/link] via PM.

    So here are the specs:
    • Main banner image (foreground) - 764 x 110

    • Main Background image - 764 x 110

    • Curve image - 69 x 69

    • Side Bar image - 32 x 465

    • Post Reply image - 437 x 88

    • Left and Right adholders - 74 x 58


    Please post your banner entries as one image or as separate elements (see below):

    Only one banner submission per user please, and there are no limitations on the image content (keeping it all family friendly and within TFN policies of course). But since it's for a JC special occasion, obviously we would love to see ones full of Star Wars / Happy Holidays imagery.

    The winner gets to design themselves (or have designed for them) a personal Holiday themed icon that they can use for the week that their banner is up. They will also be VIP'd and given a title.

    So, get cracking and let's see what you can all do. :)

    "We are not going to announce the winner prior to December 21st"

    Just don't promote the winner and give them their title before the banner is up, either :p
    That kinda took away the surprise on the Halloween banner ;)

    Yes, a banner including that art with Padmé's panties would be nice. :)

    Good luck to everyone. TFN's Christmas pics in the multimedia gallery is a good resource as well.

    You know, after i get back into the icon business

    I forget who made last years, but I liked it a lot. :) Except that George Lucas... having him in a banner at all is too much GL ;)

    I look forward to seeing the winning banner in a month!

    EDIT: Kinobe.... that is great! I love palpatine :p
