    3reef needs banners and we know you just really need this cool gorgeous aluminum CREE LED Slim Line fixture with remote dimmer from SunBrite. We saw your amazing talent in the Ecoxotic contest - so here is the deal - use this 3reef logo and any graphics or pictures (not copyrighted) you wish to use to create a cool 3reef banner that conveys what 3reef is all about to you. After a public voting round, the winner will receive the Slim Line fixture. In exchange, 3reef gets to use your banner! Sound good? :)

    Logo to use:

    • Post banners on this thread.
    • EXTENDED!! DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS NOW APRIL 25th, 12am Pacific.


    SOME WORDS ON IMAGES USED IN YOUR BANNER:
    I want to spell out a tidbit on images used in the contest for clarity - like the Ecoxotic EcoPico contest we just ran - I encourage you to use images from your own tank. This effectively gets around the copyright issues of just grabbing ocean pics off the web and it is a bit cooler to say that 3reef banner has my fish and coral in it.

    So please feel free to use pics from your own aquarium and have fun with them - modify, alter, add effects - go nuts! This contest is about originality, conveying a message about 3reef and ... having fun.

    More details soon. This should get you going... have fun! Look forward to seeing what you come up with! :)

    Can we have some current banners to get an idea of what you are looking for? It might help if I knew what a banner was used for as well haha

    I do not want to steer people a certain way by giving examples. Mine are pretty bad anyway. I really want to see what comes from you.

    These banners will be used on other reef-related sites.

    The banner is the thing at the very to part of this website. See the animated part that says "3reef" ? It goes all the way across. The advertisement at right is over-top of the banner.
