Anime News Network 2006 Holiday Logo Contest

Anime News Network is proud to announce the 2006 Holiday Logo Contest. As with year's past, from December 20, until January 1, ANN will replace our usual logo with a more festive one, appropriate for the holiday season. And, as with past years, we're inviting our readers to submit the holiday logo.

This year's contest is sponsored by FUNimation Entertainment, ADV Films and Geneon Entertainment. The winner will be able to chose any currently available box-set from each company (one box set from ADV Films, and one box set (or thinpak) from Geneon and a third boxset from FUNimation), subject to availability (see below).

We're looking for a logo that features ANN's own mascot, Jadress to be featured in the skin, original Jadress art is highly recommended.

The logo needs to have the words “Anime News” and underneath, (in smaller writing) “Wishes you all the best for the holiday season.” Feel free to use Christmas, Hanukkah, or any other cultural holiday of the season in your drawing, however you see fit!

To be eligible, a submitted logo must be exactly 360 pixels wide by 170 pixels tall (keeping in mind that the lower right section will be covered by ads on some browsers, and not covered on other browsers, depending on screen width). An example of the layout is below. The file must be submitted in PNG format.

It's very important that your submission not only look good on its own, but also look good in conjunction with the rest of ANN's website. The logo will be displayed with the new default layout (which can be seen here).

All e-mails with other subject lines will be discarded as spam. Entries are due no later than 11:59 PM, Eastern Standard Time, December 19.
