It's competition time again!
It's been a while since we held a comp here in ECC, so I figured it's about time to spice things up again
Our forum banner for the Eidos Forums vBulletin 3 Style is a bit dated and we would like to update it.
Instead of the forum staff or Square Enix' web team doing this like usual, we thought it would be a nice idea to give regular forum members a chance of having their spot in the limelight and possibly choose one of the fan submissions as our new banner for this forum skin.
This is the current banner we're looking to update:
(click image to enlarge)
- Maximum number of entries per person: 5
- Banner dimensions must be exactly 950 pixels wide and 200 pixels high.
- Include at least 2 characters from different AAA Eidos / Square Enix titles (Tomb Raider, Deus Ex, Hitman, etc) in your entry. You may include more than 2 if you want to.
- The use of the Square Enix logo is recommended.
- Upload only high quality images, preferably 24 bit PNGs. No GIFs or low compression JPGs, please.
- You have exactly one month to enter; the comp ends on February 8th, 2013!
