I'm a bit disappointed that I only got two entries, but then again, they are excellent entries, so here's your choices for the first new banner of 2016! GREG EDIT: We got an accidental late submission, so I quickly added it in to have three choices

 

I'll leave voting open through MIDNIGHT US CT, Sunday 1/17 (so just under a week) and then the banner will be updated to feature our winner!

 

Entry 1 :

Entry 2 :

Yeah, another entry to make this a real horse race.

 

Not sure why I messed up the entry deadline (and that is totally on me) but it is what it is and we have gorgeous banners to choose from.

These banners all look great but I think that #2 and #3 are the top contenders.....I'm leaning more to #2 though

The only thing that made #3 lose to #2 for me is the awkward Onemanga font, spacing and color.

I dunno guys. The idea of a banner with a brightness setting asymptotically approaching zero isn't too appealing.

It's that foggy window effect that you get during winter. That's what I get on my part when I look at #2. Well, that's just me.

 #1 I find too bright and colorful for a winter banner, would be a great summer one.

 

#2 is too dark, almost like a black overlay was applied, if it was like #3 color/brightness it would be perfect

 

#3 to me the only thing wrong with it is the text, its just bland, maybe if it had a black border, a more unique font or stylizing of the text like #2.

 

 

It would be TOTALLY cool with me if the artists who made these got to tweak them and do a vote again.  ;)

And our winner with 23 votes is - #2!   :2howgeg:

 

Congrats to Karbon for the gorgeous winning banner!  It will grace the top of the forums for an indeterminate period of time of not less than three months and possibly longer, depending on when I remember (or get reminded of) the spring contest!  :lolxg:

 

Our other lovely submissions came from ZCOverload (#1) and an anonymous ninja (#3).   :wub:

 

Thank you to our artists for taking the time to make entries each time this contest comes up.  You're all the best!

Thanks for submitting these beautiful entries. I sure do hope we find some place  to use those 2, like a special 2 weeks for them as banner?
