Yay! A contest. Been a while since you guys last had one. Time to practice with my crappy graphic design skills.

What format for the logo (bmp, jpeg etc. Any size limits)?

Are gif animations allowed?

jpeg or gif. I suggest gif.

The current logo image is 42kb, and the other image is 11kb, so...

Anything under 60kb seems reasonable.

How many banners can one person submit? Is it just one per person or submit as many as you want? If it's the latter, can the banners be totally different from one another or just different variations of the same pic?

Drawing your own Jadress is highly encouraged. I say so. Anime smallmouth

You can submit as many as you want, btu I'd suggest that 1 good submission has a better chance of winning than several rushed submissions.

Great! I have several ideas that seem nice (to me). Wheee!

mmm, and again, can we create a gif animated logo?

Can we use PNG instead of GIF and JPEG?

Yes, but only if you can tell me what PNG really stands for (hint: It's not Portable Network Graphics).

Aww man... well, here I go at attempting:

PNG:

PNG's Not GIF Laughing
Passive Night Goggles
Pencil Necked Geek
Persona Non Grata
Pressurized Natural Gas
Papua New Guinea

The Acronym finder thing found more, but they weren't as entertaining to me.

Rather than a logo competition, couldnt it have been a mascot competition. This long blonde haired elf girl who seems very out of place on an anime news website really needs to be taken down, whatever her name is. I bet most of the people who come to ANN don't even know who the hell she is. Not a mascot just a blonde anime like character that sits at the top of the page. No association with ANN at all.

er, she IS the "mascot."
*scratches head*

On a lighter note, I am beat. I just spent eight hours tweaking the main graphic for my X-mas logo. Making more than one entry might be just too exhausting... Confused
