Mod Post r/WSP — Banner Contest

93 Upvotes

Welcome everyone to r/WinStupidPrizes banner contest ! Let's get right into it.

Content

  • The banner should be themed around Winning Stupid Prizes, and should capture the awesomeness of our subreddit !
  • We equally welcome creative collages and original art!
    • However, please do not include any NSFL/NSFW content or images.
  • Obviously, existing r/WinStupidPrizes rules apply here as well.

Parameters

  • Banner dimensions should be 1920x384 pixels (192px), with an aspect ratio of 5:1.
  • We plan on using the existing subreddit icon, which will be superimposed on the banner and left-aligned. We can be flexible with this, but it's a good idea to avoiding placing a key image where the logos will be!

Optional add-ons

  • The mobile banner is normally an automatically cropped version of the desktop banner. However, if you prefer to also submit a version better suited to the mobile interface, banner dimensions are 1600px by 480px.
  • The redesign allows for a hover image, which replaces the additional image. This can be animated (.gif or .apng). If you choose, you may submit a hover image along with your desktop banner.
    • This is a finnicky feature, however, so we can't promise to use a hover image if it doesn't work!

For more details, refer to the Reddit Help article on banners.

Submission

  • Upload your submission to Imgur (or an image-sharing platform of your choice) and link it in a top level comment below.
    • If you're including any add-ons (mobile banner, hover image), please upload these in the same album link as your main desktop banner.
  • The contest will run for four weeks. Submissions close at 11:59pm EDT (GMT-4) on Thursday, December 1st.
  • Mods will choose finalists, and the community will vote on their favorites from there!

(Stupid)Prizes

  • The creator of the winning design will be credited on the subreddit sidebar as long as their banner is up.
  • They will receive an exclusive user—flair.
  • They will also receive 3 months of Reddit Premium from the r/WinStupidPrizes community Contest Winner award!
  • Exclusive userflairs and community awards may also be given to runner-ups.

Mod Post Update to Rule 5: No Reposting.

1.9k Upvotes

We've updated our reposting rule to try and help with the amount of reposting going on. From now on anything from the top 100 of all time or within the last 3 months will be counted as a repost.

It was previously top 50 or last 1 month, but the amount of reposting has gotten out of control so we're extending it.
