First let me stress that this contest is pending approval and authorization of prizes from SkepticOverlord.
It may or may not recieve this approval- I assume nothing. Prizes, if the contest does become official, are yet to be determined. The wallpaper
contest awarded a 15,000 point first prize, which MAY be matched in this contest.
If the contest remains unofficial, first prize will be applause and WATS votes from the PTS Council Staff. First and second runner up will recieve
applause as well.
Credit for this idea goes to They See ALL, who has suggested a banner competition, not unlike the Wallpaper Competition that took place some months
ago. The PTS councilor, EastCoastKid, has adopted this idea and is presenting it to SkepticOverlord, and the PTS Council Staff will be organizing
