Check out polkadot_pl's Banner ad contest…
We need images for competition to win an iPod nano loaded with romantic music
What's your vision?
Desired Color Scheme: Pale greys and pinks, but not too heavy on the pink. Desired Style: Stylish, not cheesy Accepted File Formats: Standard Web Formats (.jpg, .gif or .png); Layered Formats (.psd or .tiff) Our website, polkadot.pl, is a Polish-language website for young women who live in the UK. We are planning to run a competition on our website in the run up to St. Valentine's Day (Feb 14th) where users can win an iPod loaded with romantic music. We need help designing a background image that will be used on 3 banners: a homepage promo, a content page promo and the competition landing page. We will add the text to the images ourselves, we just need a background image containing: - an image of the latest 4GB iPod nano in white - some imagery associated with Valentine's Day, for example: love hearts flowing from the iPod screen - a faded background on to which we will add a small amount of text. Homepage promo - 290 x 196 pixels This promo appears on the homepage of polkadot.pl (it will replace the image of the woman holding the black pen). The ipod image should appear on the right hand side on this area and take no more than 140 pixels of the width. The iPod should sit on a shaded background (something similar to that used on the main image on the homepage) so that the text, which will appear to the left, has a subtle background to sit on. Content page promo 160 x variable Exactly the same image as created above, but in a vertical banner of 160 pixels width. The shaded background should extend 100 pixels above the iPod image and 250 pixels below (so we have room to add the text later). This format of ad will sit in the left column of pages such as this typical article page. Â Competition landing page image - 690x195 pixels You can see an example of the size/position of the image on this old competition page. Here, the iPod image should sit over towards the far right of the banner and the background should fade towards the left. Â Â Â Â
