SONM Banner Competition - Share the New 3DS Love - WINNERS

SONM Banner Competition - Share the New 3DS Love
Hello again and welcome to the next SONM banner competition! As you may be aware, February 14th is Valentine's day, when people around the world celebrate all things love and romance. We being Nintendo fans however know that this year, February 13th is the much more important date in the month, with the launch of the New 3DS, along with the release of the much anticipated games The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate for the 3DS console family. For that reason, we are looking for banner designs expressing your love for one of those three - the New 3DS, Majora's Mask, or Monster Hunter 4! Three winners will be chosen, one for each category, and each banner will be used with a different forum style. The three styles are ONM Classic, Super ONM and Super Blue - if you want to know more about these, check out Customising the Forum!

The competition is open for entries now (just post your entry in this thread) and will close on Sunday 8th February. The winner will then be chosen and announced and the new banner used for a week from February 13th!

If you want to take part, then check the out the information and resources that you need below. Remember that we want entries to show your love for the subject matter, in true Valentine's spirit, and that you can enter as many times as you want (and in multiple categories too if you like!). Good luck!

Rules
  • You can enter as many times as you like, both across the categories and within the same category.
  • The New 3DS category will be used with the "ONM Classic" style, Majora's Mask with "Super ONM", and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate with "Super Blue".
  • 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 Sunday 8th February.
  • The winning entries 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.

I had a go at copying the New 3DS logo, it's a bit plain but it'll get the ball rolling I guess. Might try for a Majora's Mask one later.

Made another quick effort in an attempt to get other people to try making logos.

I won't be entering. Someone should put the Majora's Mask above the logo and take ouy eye sokets so you still se the logo. Just a thought.

It seems kinda obvious I guess, but replacing the coloured circles with 4 masks would work. Might give it a go later, but I'm not great at making this kinda thing.

Competition Winners
With the entries all in and the 13th of February upon us, here are the winners for the "Share the New 3DS Love" SONM banner competition! With no entries around the theme of Monster Hunter, we decided to change things up a little and pick two Majora's Mask designs - luckily this worked out perfectly, as there were two great designs sitting there that we didn't want to pick between!

New 3DS Launch - Classic ONM

Fabong's original design also included a New 3DS in place of the logo, but in fact we decided that the text alone was all that was needed. Perfectly combining the New 3DS branding with our own banner, this design is simple yet brilliantly effective, and now takes pride of place at the top of the default theme on the site!

Tentacle really nailed the theme of the competition with this broken heart Majora's Mask design, and we're all big fans of the result. The iconic Majora's Mask now looks out over the forum if you're using the Super ONM theme, so enjoy!

Finally we come to lemmi's design, which adapts the Super ONM logo to include some of the most recognisable character's from Majora's Mask while maintaining the logo's design and visual simplicity. This sleek, modern design goes great with the Super Blue forum theme!

Thanks to everyone for entering - the forum looks all the prettier for your efforts, and of course the winners and their banner designs are recorded for posterity in the SONM Banner Archive!

Cool it's been 12 years since I won anything (Egg and spoon race in sports day if you're interested).

Well, considering there were 3 Majora's Mask themed submissions for what ended up being two winner positions, you always had a good chance ;)

I might have forgotten to do that for the Christmas ones too

I think it's actually a good idea though, if it helps encourage people to contribute/enter
