Webmaster Comment: The theme of this
year's contest was "cool fonts"... And when I came up with this year's
theme, I certainly didn't have something like this in mind!!!
Wow... "TFG" never looked quite so sexy... One of the most clever TFG
banner designs to date, and some very impressive original artwork! GREAT
Eienmic's other banner entry, also notably clever... Try that input on your
fight stick! ;)
won: $20 gift card
from Gamestop and a free TFG Membership for 4 months!

Webmaster Comment: This banner
just cracks me up every time I see it... And
it's so true. Derrick Aviles also created some "more serious" TFG
banners which were very nicely designed, but this one takes the cake! CLICK

Banners should be no
bigger than 600 X 250 pixels! Other than that, any size or shape
is acceptable! Smaller and sleeker is usually better though.
Banners can simply
say "The Fighter's Generation / TFG," or be themed after any
of TFG's sections such as "News, Characters, Features,
Videos, Shop, etc," and even for specific pages/features like "Timeline,
Separated at Birth, Misheard Special Moves, etc."
Using the the text "TFG" and/or "The Fighter's Generation"
is promoted (on all banners) but not required. Also feel free to include the
website address on any banner... "FightersGeneration.com"
Animated banners are
allowed (if you got the skills), just keep the animations relatively short &
sweet; and of course, original.
The theme of this years
contest will be "cool
any (and as many) fighting game characters from any franchise, and photoshop
in some sweet special effects, but don't ruin it with a boring old font... Be
creative with your text!!!
no limit to how many banners you can enter into the contest... Increase
your chances of winning and create as many as you can conjure up! And may the
best banner win!!! Your
TFG Webmaster will be the ultimate judge of the contest (though I will
be taking feedback from others), and will also be supplying the prizes (below)!
