This year for Halloween I decided that I don't want what would amount to a generic off the internets Halloween avatar (there are plenty of Halloween
monkey images on the net), but instead would appeal to the creativity of the ATS/BTS membership for an avatar I can wear proudly for Halloween.
First, the particulars:
All avatars designed must meet the Avatar & Signature Guidelines.
If desired, the submission can be designed as a profile background... This allows for more complex and detailed submissions.
Since the avatar is for me, it must be simian in nature.
Originality, creativity, and quality of the avatar/background are the judging criteria.
Judging will be done by myself, and an anonymous group of non-participating members.
Deadline for submissions is October 23rd, 2009 5pm Pacific time. Winner will be announced, and avatar/background placed in my profile by October 24th,
9am Pacific time.
Now the best part... What you will win...
A wordy and pedantic proclamation of your victory from yours truly... Suitable for framing (frame not included).
A link in my signature that will read as follows:
"(winners username) won Mirthful Me's Halloween Avatar Contest and all I got was this lousy link"
Text will link to the thread of your
Link will remain in my signature until January 1st, 2010.
This is an unofficial contest.
Please submit avatars/backgrounds to this thread.
