As many if not all of you know by now, tinypic failed on us so almost all the banners from our banner contest were deleted. Though we had votes in the voting round, all the banners were gone so we could not declare the winning banner. That's why we have decided to redo the entire banner contest. I'm really sorry abou this, since you all worked soooo hard on the previous banners and it all went to waste, but blame tinypic. However, if you guys have the old banners still saved in your PC, please do send them in so that you work will not have gone to waste.
The rules are the same as last time, but posting them again for newcomers...
This time, please upload the banners via
The Banner must to be 728 * 90 (Pixels).
You can Submit upto 5 Banners maximum. The banner(s) must be non-animated.
The Banner must contain pictures from ONLY the Deathly Hallows movie. However, for a character like Albus Dumbledore who did not make an appearance in the DH movie, you may use a Half Blood Prince pic. In general, your banner must portray the Deathly Hallows movie, so if it looks like it's a HBP or before banner, we will kindly request you to edit it.
This is a great place to find Deathly Hallows pics:
You can also check Mugglenet (biggest HP portal), GOOGLE or other search engines for pics. There are many out there.
The Banner must contain the two words 'Harry Potter'. You can also add any other small text/quote if you want as long as it does not cover the pictures and is appropriate & pertains to the Epic. If you are confused about adding a particular quote, you can PM Aish, Chhilt, or me for your doubt to be cleared.
The Banner must contain pictures of...
Harry, Ron, and Hermione
The Deathly Hallows sign
Other characters you may use if you want:
Lucius and Draco Malfoy
Fred, George, and Ginny
Bill and Fleur
There are so many other characters out there you may include if you wish.
Please Do Not write your name/signature on the banner, because the voting must be done anonymously. Once the winning banner is selected, the winner will be notified and then he/she can add their signature.
Make Sure the Banner does not Contain any offensive or Sexual Content or else the Banner will be disqualified immediately.
Dev Team Members may also submit a banner(s) since we won't be the ones choosing a winner.
Please PM banners to hpcontests, because it will be easier to manage all the entries than if they were sent to us viewbies/mods. Here's the link.
Deadline: March 15, 2011 (Date will be extended if needed.)
