Hello, everyone, and welcome to today's episode of the- AHEM.
Welcome to the official Azuricast Banner Competition! In preparation for Season 3, the hosts of Azuricast (Bijou, Solar, and I) are holding our annual art competition for a new banner.
The winner will have their entry displayed as the Azuricast thumbnail on YouTube (with minor edits to account for episode numbers and names) for the entirety of Season 3! Full credit will be given to you in the description of every episode.
Let's get to the rules now, shall we?
✰ The dimensions of the image must be 1280x720px, as that is the standard YouTube thumbnail size. It must be fully rectangular - no transparent areas.
✰ The thumbnail can be anydigitalmedium - drawings, paintings, graphics, or even pixel art! Keep in mind, however, that we will have to edit the winning entry's text.
✰ To provide us a sample of how the text of the banner will look like, you must put the following text in your entry (punctuation and spacing can be edited): AzuricastSeason3,Episode1:InsertTitleHere
✰ Please try to keep a Pokemonthemeand/orsomethingthatmakesfunofthehosts if you wish to include images in your design.
✰ You may submit asmanyentriesasyouwish. The more, the merrier!
✰ You may absolutely collaborate with other members on your entries if you wish to do so!
✰ PM all entries to Bijou,Solar,andThundawave.
✰ The deadline for entries is August31at11:59pmEDT.
✰ If you win, you mustremaininreasonablecontact with the hosts throughout the entire season (September 2018 to May 2019) in order to make the necessary title changes on your banner. If for any reason you cannot access the site or edit the banner for an extended period of time, you must send the .psd or .xcf file to the hosts to allow us to edit it at will.
All entries will be judged by the three Azuricast hosts privately at the end of the submission period. When judging is finished, we will announce the winner and give shoutouts to some runners-up. The following are criteria that we will consider when judging:
✰ Relevance to theme (if there are images) ✰ Overall appeal ✰ How well the entry represents the spirit of Azuricast
Please keep in mind that this thumbnail will be on the official Azurilland YouTube and will be a representation of Azuricast and the forums as a whole.
Sorry for the long wait - busy schedule and the forums not cooperating can really delay things. The winner is keejot once more, now with 100% less Arceus head!
Thanks also to Cursebreaker for creating an entry. It was super cute, and we enjoyed seeing your creation too! Both entries will likely appear on the Instagram at some point, so keep an eye out for that.
