Contest $20 Banner Ad Contest

Discussion in 'Design Contests' started by PhiladelphiaIM, Aug 5, 2015.

    Hello, everyone.
    SEMrush
    I'm hosting a $20 contest for a 468x60 banner ad for the site I linked above. I prefer a dark color scheme and the use of the DK American Grunge font if possible. The banner should include the call-to-action "Play for Free" in it somewhere. I am very open minded and flexible with the design. I'm awful at coming up with ideas for projects like this (hence this contest) so I hope contestants will take a look at the site and that it will generate some inspiration.

    This is for a free-to-play, browser-based MMORPG where players live the life of a prison inmate. The game allows them to start a gang, fight other players (PVP), sell drugs, control real estate, commit crimes, and more. There are a lot of options that suit different styles of play.

    The ad should, of course, make viewers want to go to the site and play the game.

    I will pick one winner for $20. I might pick a second place winner as well. Payment will be via PayPal. You will need to send me the banner and the source file(s). If I select your work as the winner, I'd be happy to pay you for future banner designs / different sizes as well, so there's some additional work potential here.

    If you have any questions, please let me know.
    I would prefer that all design submissions be posted in this thread.
    Please do not type the name of the site or its URL in this thread.

    This looks great! I love the images you used in the background. The bullet holes are a nice effect as well.

    Do you need an animated banner or a static one?

    Looks good! Thanks a lot, Ionutt85.

    Either one would be acceptable!

    No worries! Welcome to DP, by the way. The contest will run for a while and I'll see what's submitted. After I have a chance to review all of the entries and provide the creators with feedback, I'll select a winner. From there, I'll make payment via PayPal and the user will send me the files. Does that seem clear?

    I really like this submission! The banner gets a lot of information across without being too crowded. "Money. Respect. Power. Repeat." is an awesome phrase to include. I like the placement of the CTA. Overall, a top-notch banner design. Thanks a lot, Untitled.
