And remember, the more cleavage, the better the chances of winning.

Does it have to be an original drawing? The article says, "or any other cultural holiday of the season in your drawing, however you see fit!" It sounds like it has to be.

I remember the last time that happen. Once again, I can only draw stick figures. Good luck to people with skills.

Hmm, I think I'll enter. Do we have to draw Jadress, or can we use one of the provided pics? I don't want to be DQ'ed for not doing it right Crying or Very sad

Not to be a spoil sport, but is Bandai still releasing Wolf's Rain Limited Collection in a tin? I bought mine from Best Buy and it came in the black angular cardboard case with a red Wolf's Rain logo on the front.

I thought they decided against the tin, for some reason.

Wink Clearly. Especially since, you know, last year the winner was a snowman.

Hmm, I feel totally stupid since I've been here for a while, but I didn't know the mascot of ANN had a name. So, is this person who posts sometimes your mascot? I had no idea... I actually didn't notice the resemblence between her and the character in the top left corner until now.

Yeah, it's Lois from TV's Family Guy if she was a blond hair elf. Far from Jadress.

After looking at the past entries, it occurs to me that I haven't a chance of winning. Ah well, I wouldn't get an entry in by the 15th anyway.

So all an entry needs to be is a logo (with Jadress) that is 534 x 73 pixels? How many entries can be submitted per person?

An semi-related question: Is there a limit to how many contests a person can win on ANN?

The time that a picture featuring cleavage won the contest it won *despite* having cleavage, not because of it.

No it doesn't have to be original. But it can't include any copyrighted or trademarked material.

I had trouble with this last year, and I'm having trouble with it again in 2005. The layout for the larger logo option (not just the main ANN banner size) is ...not very clear (at least to me). I'd like to make a larger banner, but I'm not sure of the dimensions, mostly the height on the far left side and far right side. It kind of looks like its 2.5 times as tall as the main banner height, but I can't be sure. Copying the layout example provided and bringing it up in Photoshop returns an image dimension of 1012x226; I assume this is accurate and that by figuring in the ad banner sizes, we'd arrive at the proper space for creative minds to play with?

That's Robin Sevakis, she created Jadress.

Correct. Just be sure to remember that the 728x90 banners go quite far to the right.

About the bigger banners, could you move them so its on the far left side? So that there is more room on the right.
