Make an Ad Banner for Inkbunny this week. Win $50!

Want to give us a helping hand and get a chance to win some money? Inkbunny needs ad banners!

We are running a competition to get some good ad banners created quickly. The banners will be used to help us get the word out about Inkbunny by advertising on other art boards, community and social networking sites.

The creator of the banner we judge to be the best will receive $50 cold hard cash!

The competition closes in 1 week at 11:59pm Sunday, 1st of August, PDT (Seattle/LA time). The winner will be announced no more than one week later. Late entries may be considered, but try to get them done on time. We need to use the banners to advertise asap.

We will consider using any banner entries that we think are suitable, even if they don't win first place.

Requirements:

* If you submit a banner to this competition, you authorise us to use it on any site we choose to advertise on, without limitation.

* Ad banner size must be exactly 180px wide x 75px high.

* Try to keep the file size under 200kb.

* Ad banner must be an Animated Gif. (NO Flash/Shockwave banners please)

* Animations must not cycle through lots of frames rapidly, flicker or be overly distracting due to excessive animation effects.

* Content must be G or M rated.

* Must mention "https://inkbunny.net/"; or "inkbunny.net".

* Must contain text that gives most or all of the following info (you can re-word it or drop lines that you just don't want to use): "Furry art community", "Buy and sell Digital Content and Prints", "Share your art for free".

* You can add any other text or messages that you think help promote the site.

* You can use the Inkbunny pink rabbit mascot and text logo (the ones that appear at the top of the Inkbunny site), but it is not essential. To get the original mascot as a PNG file go to https://inkbunny.net/submissionview.php?id=14576

* UPDATE: You can use the official Inkbunny site backgrounds as part of your ad banners in this competition (thanks Lando!). The URLs for the max res of the available backgrounds are:

https://inkbunny.net/bg_themes/lando2/2560x1600_daytime...
https://inkbunny.net/bg_themes/lando3/2560x1600_daytime...
https://inkbunny.net/bg_themes/lando3b/2560x1600_daytim...
https://inkbunny.net/bg_themes/lando4/2560x1600_daytime...
https://inkbunny.net/bg_themes/lando5/2560x1600_daytime...

* You must only use your own artwork and characters, or artwork and characters you have permission to use. Even if you own commissioned artwork and plan to use parts of that, you must ask the artist if it's okay to use their work in an Inkbunny ad banner first.

* Try to keep banners looking clear, bright and professional! Text should be large and in colors/fonts that are easy to read. The animation frames should give the viewer ample time to read it. It's best to get the message across in as few animation frames as possible, while having enough changes to draw a bit of attention to the banner.

* To submit banners: Please email us the banner as a file attachment to admin@inkbunny.net. You may also post your ad banners as art submissions to Inkbunny or other art sites as soon as you are finished, but you still must email us a copy.

Please contact us for any other info you need.

Good luck!

Looks like you need to add a bullet list function, eh? =p

Hmm.. I may try something.. but I has no art that I've drawn so I'm at a disadvantage.

What about commissions of my character? Can I use those?

Yeah just like it says, you can use any art that you have permission to use. But the artist has to know you're using it in an Inkbunny ad and give you permission to use it for that! Even if it's something you already paid for!

Ah, sorry for skimming. x.x;

Do we have permission to use the background images Lando's made in the advertisement as well?
starling

I'll double check! It should be fine as we paid for those modified BG versions and Lando would probably say yes anyway. But it's always best to be sure! Please PM me tomorrow if I haven't got back to you or replied to this thread with the answer.

Lando just told me it's fine for the BGs to be used in ad banners entered in this competition.

Damn good question! I'm asking a couple of the sites we plan to advertise on but they may take a lil while to reply. If I don't reply in 24 hrs bug me about it please! For now assume nothing bigger than 200kb because no banners I've seen on the other sites are over that size.
starling

Looks like there's no official limit for the little banners, so we'll say 200kb as that seems a sensible number!

I'd try, but most of the artists here are better than me, so then I know when to not bother.. cant think of anything anyway XD

do they have to be animated? also, can we submit multiple banners?
starling
8 years, 6 months ago
Animated is better, as it draws attention. But of course it's best not to overdo it! They can work well with as little as two or three frames. You are welcome to submit multiple banners.

Would love to see it! Even if you don't make it in time for the comp, it'd still be really helpful if you have time to make it. :3

I'm glad I re-read this journal... I had totally forgotten to e-mail it in haha...

It also uses your own username for the user account link examples, which has confused a lot of people already who wondered why we were using their account name as the example for everyone! Which of course is just an illusion. XD

Yeah, I noticed that =P

Neat trick.

It must really trip them out if it worked for their FA and SoFurry accounts too =P
