    Is there somewhere we can view all the past banners to get an idea of where people have gone with this before?
    Thanks

    At the moment it is not possible, but I'll look into it. For now we have the current one above which is the Carbon Chamber and prior to that was very Imperial with the Star Destroyers.

    I actually have a question now - is more than one submission allowed?

    I have a few entries...
    (PLEASE let me know if you notice anything off so I can fix it - my computer doesn't always pick up problems with contrast and tiny pixels out of place! Thanks!!)

    I have the HD files available if needed, but I wanted to post them so that people could see how they'd look with the logo etc.

    Boom. :p

    Why would you be?

    He is Canon and I don't think they would really care if he was not.

    .PSD and .PNG files of the logo, please? Just in case something might look better without a shadow. :)

    Thank you so much. :)

    I had a bout of allergy yesterday and I forgot to look at the actual code. Overlay makes so much more sense, of course!


    Need help? :)

    @Ramza So don't worry about the logo? It will just go over the top as an overlay? (I have knowledge of code by the way) I mean to say the logo's aren't necessary to add ourselves?

    We are allowed to draw our entries, right? We don't have to use photos or anything like that?

    Correct. The logo is a separate image that is overlayed on top of the banner artwork:

    So it seems the rules would technically allow me to submit my old SFAF Stargate banner, right? ;)

    Well I want to disagreee with you but can't. We are already getting a new trilogy disregarding the tv series and carrying on from the film.
    Oh and Universal (20th century fox whoever holds the rights) hurry up and release a Stargate Sg 1 Blu ray complete set.


    *I finished Battlestar Galactica tonight and it was honestly better than Stargate.

    I was working on a BSG wallpaper so maybe I could do a mock banner as well!

    I do wish for a continuation of the SG-1,SGA,SGU story lines or for new content to be set in that world… that ship has sailed (for now). From what I've heard, the new trilogy of films is actually a 'reboot' and they'll be doing it all from scratch. More pleasant news, Jack O'Neill and Rodney McKay were in Sydney on the weekend for OzComicCon. Since SG is no longer around (for now), Arrow (and Flash) has filled that void for me.

    Back to the topic at hand. There is nothing to stop you from making and submitting banners outside of Star Wars (this Art forum welcome all fandoms and original works) however, best to keep in mind that this is predominately a Star Wars/Lucasfilm boards and it will be up to the judges to select the main banner that will be seen across all forums.

    If I still had a copy, I would submit my "I liek Star Wars/LOTR/Spock/Lame" banner that was periodicially used on the JCC many many MANY years ago.

    Admins! Is there still a version hidden anywhere?
