Announcing The Great 11W Banner Contest

By 11W Staff on September 7, 2011 at 10:17p

As some of you may have noticed, our site banner is a little stale. Sure, the new coach is featured, but slapping his head onto a sweatervest does not do the Fickell era justice.

So here's what we're going to do: Taking a cue from BuddhaBuck's fine work (featured below), we're going to hold a contest to replace the 11W banner. If you have mad design chops, we'd love to see your work -- as would thousands of other Buckeye fans, no doubt. We'll leave this open for a week and then we'll pick one lucky winner and send them two t-shirts from 11W Dry Goods for their effort.

BuddhaBuck has set the bar (and automatically entered himself into a contest he had no idea about), but we'd love to see what the community at-large can do.

Image Specs:

  • The banner should maintain its current size (660x60 pixels).
  • The banner should maintain its current frame -- meaning "ELEVEN WARRIORS" and the stripes should stay -- your canvas is the rightmost 264 pixels or so.
  • If you'd like, you can download our current banner here.
  • You should submit your image as a JPG or PNG and can either link to it in the comments, or insert it (though the comment box is < 660px wide, so you may want to link).
  • The banner does not have to feature Luke Fickell.

The Fine Print

  • Entrants must be 18 or older.
  • Deadline for entries is 9pm ET on Wednesday, September 14th.

Good luck!
