0.2 BTC bounty for banner ads to advertise this forum

Sun Sep 27, 2015 4:34 pm

---------------Oct 5th, 2015 Update----------------
The bounty has been claimed, and a new press page with the banners has been created here.
I would love additional submissions though.
Please submit them to this thread, or press@bitcoin.com
---------------------End Update--------------------


Luckily lots of us in the industry want to see free and open discussion be allowed, so they are interested in helping promote this forum. To do that, I will need some banner art, so now is your chance to test out your creative skills!

We can use multiple banners that alternate through the campaigns, so the prizes will be:

0.1 BTC for first place (~$23)
.07 BTC for second place (~$12)
.03 BTC for third place (~$6)

On October 1st I will start a poll and let you guys vote for which banners you like the best.
Voting will then be open until Oct 3rd, with the payouts on Oct 4th.
Please show us what you can do!

Tried my hand at one before the pros get here. Perhaps it will inspire someone :-)

I also butchered the logo for fun, but I'm afraid it might look too amateurish. Again, it might inspire someone else to make something cooler!

Edit: Changed the logo to be easier on the eyes

These look great!
Can I ask for one in a 567 x 222 size as well?
I'm hoping to get them up on blockchain.info

Glad you like them!

I'll give it a shot :)

Edit:

Here's an attempt at 567x222

I also fixed the quality on the twitter bots shining new background, it looked very pixelated

Disclaimer: I am not a professional ad designer and these should probably be reviewed by someone with more experience.

If you (or anyone) want the psds I can send them over too :geek:

Last chance for submissions before the deadline!
I would love to have some sized so that I can use on news.bitcoin.com to let more of those people know about the forums as well.

I got you bro. Edit to come!

Edit: I continued with the same kind of style as my previous contributions, just slightly flashier. News.bitcoin.com sized ads (225x335):

One with the normal logo:
news_ad_bubble_normal-logo.png
news_ad_bubble_normal-logo.png (55.38 KiB) Viewed 7503 times
One with the cool 8-) forum logo:
news_ad_bubble_special-logo.png
news_ad_bubble_special-logo.png (55.55 KiB) Viewed 7503 times
All text etc on these ads (and the other ones) can of course be altered, I just added something I thought sounded good at the moment

Since we didn't have very many submissions, I just went ahead and paid everyone who made a submission the first place prize of 0.1 BTC.

I also setup a press page for anyone to download the banners:
https://www.bitcoin.com/press

It's also linked from the footer of the rest of the site.

I would love to have some additional banners to be made available for others.

Thank you everyone who participated!

Thanks for making these!
The graphics look great, but the English is strange.
Any of these would sound better:
"Join an online Bitcoin community"
"Join a Bitcoin community network"
"Join an online network of Bitcoin enthusiasts"

Maybe some other people have some suggestions for the tag line as well.
