Banner Submissions Open

We are collecting your banner design submissions to be featured at the top of Video Copilot! Is that a good thing? I don’t know.

Start Here

BTW: This is not a contest but depending on how everything goes we may consider some challenges in the future. Your reward for the trouble is knowledge and maybe bragging rights to small kittens! We’ll check them out and publish them on the site from time to time, we’re probably not going to announce ones we publish, so keep your eyes open.

Also, the font I commonly use is called Century Gothic, not required but I like it.

Deadline for this round: This Friday, sept 11, 2009

Will you post who the runner-up banners are? I'd hate to see a whole community dedicated to graphic design be forced to have only one winner. Inevitably, I'd like to see that perhaps it was at least a difficult decision when choosing the best XD

September 7th, 2009 @ 9:35 am
how bout a banner rotation script ? that way you see a different banner each time you come onto the page.
September 7th, 2009 @ 9:43 am
@ Fabian: Yeah I got a randomizer script on my site for the banner. It is really easy to do.
September 7th, 2009 @ 10:21 am
Awesome!!! I just started making mine!
September 7th, 2009 @ 11:54 am

But, perhaps will be determined on the logo?
September 7th, 2009 @ 1:36 pm

September 7th, 2009 @ 5:37 pm
i posted but my pic isnt up yet.....i hope my pic will be chosen :)
September 7th, 2009 @ 5:38 pm
You should make it dymanic, so one appears every time, that way everyone's happy!!!
September 7th, 2009 @ 7:29 pm
I've seen a lot good ones in the forum, I think this "not contest" is a great idea.
As Al Delcy said a dynamic changing banner would be great.

Greetings from Austria :D
September 7th, 2009 @ 10:36 pm
I agree! Dynamic (random) banner would be great! That way you can just hit F5 until you find yours, if it got there :]
September 8th, 2009 @ 3:15 am
Im trying to think of a good idea.
September 8th, 2009 @ 6:42 am
Hey Andrew this is a really nice idea. A few of us vfx artists use a site called VFX student which helps students improve the skills and get advice from vfx experts.

I will make a banner for you and i'll post it within this week.

somehow I get the feeling this Banner Contest will soon fall under the... "Be careful what you wish for..." category.

From what I can tell, there are 20-30 excellent banner choices to choose from...
September 8th, 2009 @ 11:27 am
should we do the banner with AFTER EFFECTS or PHOTOSHOP ??

or it doesn't matter as long as it looks good !

plz answer me :) !
September 8th, 2009 @ 8:21 pm
I think the best banner was the one that said. "VeeFX and Moshun grafix"
September 9th, 2009 @ 1:24 am
Since we're on the subject, I really think you should have a jQuery slider since you have some many products on the homepage. Something full width like the Hootsuite would be cool.

I think it would help keep homepage from looking cluttered.

Just my 2 cents.
September 9th, 2009 @ 7:43 am
agree with sonicballer8888 :D
September 9th, 2009 @ 12:11 pm
