Halloween and Bonfire Night 2016 - Banner Competition RESULT

Post by OrangeRakoon » Wed Oct 19, 2016 10:51 pm

Halloween and Bonfire Night come hot on the heels of the two year anniversary of Super ONM, and that means it's banner competition time! As per last year, we want you to create a banner combining both celebrations of Halloween and Bonfire Night into a single design, preferably with some gaming goodness thrown it there too!

The competition is open for entries now (just post your entry in this thread) and will close at the end of Saturday 29th October. The winner(s) will then be chosen and announced and the new banner(s) used for a week from October 31st.

If you want to take part, then check the out the information and resources that you need below. Feel free to let your imagination go wild, although we ask that you only use official images and art from Nintendo or art of your own creation, so no using any fanart that you find around the internet please. With that said, good luck and we look forward to seeing your entries!

Rules
  • You can enter as many times as you like.
  • Entries must be posted in this thread, and the image must be saved as a PNG file.
  • Size is not strictly enforced, but you should aim to use or be around the current banner size, which is 418px × 172px.
  • It is suggested that the banner should either have a transparent background, or you should create a version matching the colour of the style it will be used with - the blue background (colour #009bc8) is used with ONM Classic and Super Blue, and the red (colour #e30018) with Super ONM.
  • The closing date for entries is Saturday 29th October.
  • The winning entry will be chosen by the mod team.
  • Please ensure your entries follow all the usual forum rules.
Resources

Here are some resources that you may find useful in creating your banner design. Bear in mind that these are just for help - you don't have to use these templates if you don't want to! You are free to come up with an entirely different design if you wish.

Good luck, and we hope to see some great entries!

I've added a lot more to the one I posted in the What's Mario Peeking At thread to fit with the theme.
Fireworks and a weird Halloween Mario.

Congrats on a great winning design! Here is what the panel of modjudges have to say:
The hand-drawn boo logo looks great and is the centrepiece of this clean, professional design.
Troggy's design is good, clean and simple. It's always important to remember less is more with design.
Troggy's is clean and looks professional.
It's not all about winning though, and our runner up in second place is...

There's a lot going on here, but I really like that peeking Mario has made a starring appearance!
Thanks for taking part in the competition, it's great to see another fantastic community-made banner on the site! :)
