First of all i'd like to say thankyou to everyone who's taken the time to contribute a design in this thread, there are some amazing looking ads posted here and it has been a very difficult task deciding which one's are the best.

I've had a good look through all of the designs, and come up with an overall winner and a runner up. My choice is based on serveral different factors, including artisticness, how easy the advert is to read and how well it catches the attention of someone browsing a site on which the advert is placed.

So without further ado, the winning design is:

designed by Angelfish

In second place is this banner advert :

designed by Nikolaos

Congratulations to our winning designs, and thanks to everyone else for taking part.  thumbsup.gif

Ya know, a few days ago I found a better explaination(sp?) for Angelfish than "Cus it sounds cool".
But than I realized there was no one around to hear it, and I got really depressed.
I hope you all intend to make me feel better.

Good job to everybody!

I never realized that we had so many talented folks visiting us here. It is great to see how many people pitched in to come up with a new banner.

The new banner is beautiful thumbsup.gif  

Too many people on both sides of the spectrum have fallen into this mentality that a full one half of the country are the enemy for having different beliefs...in a country based on freedom of expression. It is this infighting that allows the focus to be taken away from "we the people" being able to watch, and have control over government corruption and ineptitude that is running rampant in our leadership.

People should be working towards fixing problems, not creating them.
