    With the reforms and upgrades to the LucasForum Projects forum now in full swing, it gives us great pleasure to announce the much-anticipated LucasFilm Forum Banner contest!

    We are taking submissions for the LFP banner from now until Friday, Jan 31, 2003. We're opening the contest up to anyone and everyone.

    There will be just ONE winner, chosen by the JC admins / Carter-TFN & jp-30. The banner which best captures the scope of the forum will likely win , so don't make a banner that only features Indy for example.

    The winning theme will be applied to the LFP forum until such time down the track as it is deemed necessary to change or update.

    You should use this thread for advice or suggestions; JC Banner Makers Thread.

    Final entries should be sent to jp-30 (PM him for details), or posted in this thread in Communications.

    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. The winner gets VIPship (red colours only) plus a custom "LFP Banner Designer" title, plus Carter-TFN has upped the ante by donating a Celebration II program, and jp-30 has also added the 4 Ltd. Edition Cover AOTC Soundtrack CDs into the prize pool, making this a banner worth pulling out all the stops for. :D

    Also, some of you may wish to utilise the classic Indy / Howard font which can be found here; Safari and Venture Font is what you're after.

    Those unfamiliar with the Forum are encouraged to take a look around to get a feel for the place. But a summary of what would be considered appropriate are;
    Most Relevant - Lucas written or directed non-SW movies, & ILM;
    • George Lucas

    • Indiana Jones, and imagery from the films / TV series

    • THX-1138

    • American Graffiti

    • Willow

    • ILM

    Secondary Importance - LucasFilm Releases with minimal George Lucas input

    • Radioland Murders

    • The Land Before Time

    • Labyrinth

    • Howard the Duck

    etc...

    See this thread for more on these categories and the importance placed on them within LucasFilm Projects discussion.

    If including imagery from any of the ILM movie contribu/>

    If anyone wants to use this, they're welcome to. You don't have to of course... just something I made that may be useful to some designers.

    [image=http://www.hansen.net.nz/starwars/lucasfilmprojects-title.jpg]

    It's here, much larger for resizing down, as a layered photoshop .psd file (which can also be opened by Paint Shop Pro;

    lucasfilmprojects-title.psd (right-click -> "save target as")

    Just a little heads-up.

    If you're using this Forum Title graphic, grab the fonts (linked in the opening post of this thread), and change Jedicouncil.net to theforce.net.

    Sweet.

    Of course my artistic ability is somewhere in the range from little to no, but I will be eagerly anticipating what everyone else is able to come up with.

    I'll give it a shot though I might be slow. Too bad just one submission since sometimes I like to play with variations.

    Post your variations and I, plus other forum goers, can give you our opinions on which is the best one to submit. :)

    That one is good. Maybe I should quit while I'm ahead, or actually at the starting line, I'm still looking for appropiate pictures!!! ;-)

    Those are all so good, I have photoshop I just wish I knew how to use it...I just have a question what does George have to do with Jurassic Park?

    Oh it's ILM, my bad...someone should put the Delorian in their banner, I know I would :(

    It hasn't got anything to do with the user's nickname but ''slavegirl'''s is great.

    Thankyou very much, batvader and Mrs_Kitty. [face_blush] Although there are several other great banners, and I know I'd have a hard time choosing just one. :)

    Thank you all for your entries, all your effort is very much appreciated. Thank you for helping me in the rebuilding of that neglected forum.

    I do hope you all stick around and participate in the LucasFilm Projects forum, even if your design was not used. Those who miss out - please keep your files, because we'll be running another contest sometime in the future. :)

    Unfortunately, there can only be one winner.

    Please step up to the podium for your prize Silmarillion.

    :)
