Judging will be held on this date by the Directors of n00bsalad which includes Kigen. After judging the winner will be notified by private message on this forum by no later than February 5th. Arrangements will then be made for the winner to accept the prize that they choose. The winner may also accept an interview for an official position in the graphics department for both www.kigenac.com and www.n00bsalad.net .

Work was slow tonight Max ... ;)
I was unsure if you were restricted to only jpg formats for banners,
So I supplied some animated gifs

I don't have a n00bSalad account, so I'll submit these here, Nightrider/Kigen, if it's required to post on the NS thread, could you post a link there to here please :).

Banner (Click to see in full):

Button:

I used code from 1.1.9.4 since it's not as clean as the 1.2.x branch, so looks better in an image :P.
The underscore instead of a hyphen in Anti-cheat is intentional, as a small nod to ACTION_BAN etc.
Both images are vector and can be scaled to whatever you require.

Great work guys!

There isn't a limit on the format. Though if it were to be made into the official banner it would be better if it could be in jpg or gif format so its small and compact for everyone else to view.

Actually I'd love to see animated banner, just not overly animated. :p And on that, one thing I'd love to see is the code moving or something similar to the way Half-Life's screen was before Steam.

Kigen
The only issue with animated gifs is the file size tends to climb
with the number of frames that are present and the number of art elements.

I will generate a banner with some animate code ... :D

I'm a professional graphic artist and do advertisement layout design & web banners for a newspaper.
Usually boring automotive ads like this http://projo.travidia.com/ROP/ads.aspx? ... 1842&type=

That's an animated version of mine, I really like it :D, but as nightrider pointed out, the gif version of mine is 3.5MB+ and really bad quality :P
