You know you're a big player at a major trade show - or at least you have a lot of money to waste - when the hall itself is bedecked in your gigantic, obnoxious banners. We're nowhere near this rarefied stratum yet, but we can dream. And we hope you can, too, because we don't have any idea what we would do with one of those spaces anyway. Take a look at these examples of on-site advertising for the Consumer Electronics Show (scroll down a little for pics) and...
Show us your idea for a giant Woot convention banner.
Post your entry here by 11:59 AM (central) on Monday, October 19, 2009. Prizes are $20/$50/$100 for 3rd/2nd/1st. The rules and criteria for winning: our panel of volunteer judges can and will make stuff up as it goes along. Use Photoshop, linoleum blocks, pastels, MSPaint, cave painting, tattoos, tribal scarification, whatever, but it’ll only be judged if it’s visible in our forums as a jpg, gif, or png. As we are fond of saying, try to keep your maximum width to 550px. If you need a place to host your pictures, try www.imageshack.ws or www.photobucket.com. We have no connection to either, but they seem free and easy to use. And if you want us to be sure your entry was indeed your work, post links to your source images. The more sure we are that you did your own work, the more likely we are to consider it for a prize.
Thanks, Amy, for the theme suggestion!
