    Wow, that's great Gay-LenKenobi :D
    Very creative idea to put the flags next to the respective actors.

    Thanks. :D

    Since a pic of the globe had been done (*shakes fist angrily* ;) ) I had to think of something else. The flags are meant to highlight that we all, us the fans and the actors, come from different places but the GFFA is what we all have in common. I used a cloud covered background because it was impossible to find a background that was all inclusive. So the clouds hide the terrain. It could be any place under there. :)

    Great work Gay-Len, I love the colours. :D

    If you can do a banner using the globe idea, go ahead and make it. Don't let my submission stop you from making a great banner. :)

Both are great. I wish both could be used. :)

    I am still hoping to enter the contest, but my first attempt was not succesful and now I am very busy. My only hope is to come up with something Monday or Tuesday night. They are due this Wednesday right?

    Depends on what time zone you're in. ;)

    I wasn't pleased with my post page graphic, so I've redone it and took the opportunity to add the rest of the Skywalkers to the scheme. New URL for people to be able to compare old graphics. :)

    BTW, will the contest deadline be extended if there's only two entries?

    "will the contest deadline be extended if there's only two entries"

    I would support that as well. Maybe at the end of Sunday April 13th? That would give users time on the weekend to work on theirs.

    Thanks to [hl=yellow]Rox[/hl] for advertising this banner contest in the JC Banner Makers Thread otherwise I would never known about this. ;)

    Ki-Bara-Mundi: I like your "world" text, very effective. The characters on the side look somewhat squashed and blurly though. Perhaps you could look into it?

    Gay-Len: Great banner as always. I especially like your Reply and Ad Images. Pity they won't be lined up on the screen like that. ;) I'm not so sure about the flags, they don't "fit in" with the banner terribly well.

    Very nice wenley. Sure it's not a New Zealand FanForce banner? ;) :p

    I like the design of it. The position of the Kaminoans and the Fetts aren't a problem for me, but they might be for people viewing the site at 800x600.

    Nice entries so far! :D I'm unable to enter this contest, but I'm enjoying seeing other people's work.

    dArTh_wenley - Your banner looks very impressive, although a bit too AOTC-orientated. It would be nice to see some of the other films as well. ;)

    Gay-Len - The characters go together very well, and I love the idea of country flags. An excellent banner! :D

    Ki-Bara-Mundi - I like the lettering you've used - it looks very cool indeed! :) The only thing I'm not sure about is Padmé and Leia on the Post Reply image - Padmé looks a bit squashed.

    I only get a lot of red crosses, except for the background.

    "If you can do a banner using the globe idea, go ahead and make it. Don't let my submission stop you from making a great banner."

    Aww, thanks for the offer, Ki. :) But, I think it's better if everyone's banner is different. That way the judges have more to choose from. Two very similar banners could cancel each other out as they would vote for something more unique. :)


    And thanks to everyone for their kind words. :D
