[align=center]Welcome to
Earth's Special Forces
Forum Competition II (TWO)
[/align]



Are you a frequent visitor of the ESF forums? Do you want access to THE ultimate headquarters of ESF information and want to see exclusive ESF news and media in advance? Well these competitions are here to give you free access to the Force Pit aka Phil's home.

The first competition is already well underway and we are waiting for some of the lazy fight club posters to get their rounds in before the judges can move in. But meanwhile, it's time for our second official forum competition!

Do you like using Photoshop, PaintShopPro or other advanced imaging software? Do you like creating new banners and signatures every now and then? If you do, this competition is for you! Take a look at the following image:



Yes, it is the current default banner of the ESF vBulletin forums, and the judging criteria this time is - making a new ESF forum banner! The development team will pick the winner in one of their team meetings and will use the winner's banner on the ESF forums. The winner will also get free access to the Force Pit!

Here are the rules:
- The final image must contain official content taken from Earth's Special Forces (example: a model render or an ingame pose).
- The final image must have Goku or Vegeta in some form somewhere in it.
- The final image dimensions must be 600 pixels (width) x 85 pixels (height)
- The final image must blend/fit in nicely on the forums, take a look at the current banner to see what I mean.
- The only text on the banner anywhere must be the words "Earth's Special Forces". Make a typo and you're disqualified immediately :p .
- Save your file as a JPG with good quality (minimal compression), and host it on IMAGESHACK ONLY. No other host will be accepted. When you post your entry, use the [IMG.] tags and include your image hosted at ImageShack.us.


That's it then, you guys have a maximum of two weeks to submit your image. The entries will close sharp on 13th December 2004. Keep a backup of your original banner file (example: .psd photoshop file) - as you will need to send that to the team if you win the competition.

Team members, beta testers or forum staff may also submit their entries - but incase one of their images is chosen as the best, the next best (not on any staff team) will get free access to the Force Pit as the runner up.

Note: This is an official event organized by the Earth's Special Forces team, and the prizes handed out will include exclusive access to the Force Pit, as well as your name going up on our website. You (forum user) agree that by submitting your entry to the forum competition, the Earth's Special Forces Team has rights to use the image as the forum banner image for an unlimited period of time in the future. The team can also modify the banner in the future to suit theme changes, without requiring your consent.

This is going to be cool... I'm just wondering, will the forum scheme match the colors of the banner, once it's implemented?

Sounds like this is only an advantages for the GFX thingys, (alright.. they are also a bit sexy :p)
what about us others? who don't have much experience in GFX, or are pretty known on the forum.

My question still remains can we put both goku and vegeta in it, or only one?

Please PM me, or contact me via MSN to obtain custom Vegeta/Goku Renders. Goku has not been publicly viewed so should you choose to have Goku in your banner certain restrictions will reply until I complete the skin.

Please supply details of poses, sizes, character. Your best bet would be to contact me via a messenger then I can give you exactly what you want.
