Nairaland Ads: 2nd Banner Design Contest by Seun(m): 9:26am On Nov 03, 2012
See: Results Of The Second Nairaland Ad Design Contest

Dear All,

We've decided to launch a second banner ad design contest to increase the quality and effectiveness of Nairaland Ads.

Contestants are required to design one original and compelling banner ad for each of the following products/services/pages:
* Tonto Dike's songs: Hi and iTzova (link) - to encourage people to listen to the songs.
* Nigeria vs Liberia Match (link) - to encourage people to watch the upcoming match
* National Defence Academy Recruitment (link) - to encourage people to apply.
* Gulder Ultimate Search Season 9 (link) - to encourage more people to watch the show on TV.
* The Programming Section of Nairaland (link) - to encourage people to go there to learn programming.

Rules:
* The banner adverts must be submitted as separate 154 by 95 pixel, full colour, uncompressed .PNG file attachments.
* There must be a distinguishable single pixel border around the ad. It can be any colour, but not too light. Dark is better.
* If you use pictures or graphic images, they must be obviously related to the product/service that's being advertised.
* If you use pictures of people in your ads, the pictures must feature people that look like Nigerians (i.e. blacks)
* Your text must be razor sharp and your images should be sharp and not distorted. Don't use Coreldraw or Adobe Illustrator for text.
* You must also submit your name, website, phone number, your price for designing ads, and the software(s) you used to make the ads.
* You must have access to a Nigerian Bank account through which Nigerian customers can pay you for your services.
* You must read my tips

Prize:
The contestant with the best entries will get free ad space worth 60,000 naira (Plan A, B, or C) or 50,000 naira in cash.
We will also post all decent designs that comply with the rules on a single thread so advertisers can pick designers to work with.

We've reduced the number of required banners from 9 to 5. Don't forget that we required 4 ads the last time, so it's just one more this time.

You're strongly encouraged to use images as much as possible but the images must always be related to what you're promoting.

If you can convince people to listen to Tonto Dike's songs, you can convince them to do anything! It's a worthy challenge!

Seun: It's a challenge.
Please remove anything about her from the contest, her name is already discouraging me and some others.undecided
Besides I'm sure there's nothing anyone can do to make people like those songs, not even a miracle can make that happen.

It's really about making your banner design captivating and tempting, I don't think it's really about the song here but how best you're at convincing people or getting their attention to click an ads just cuz of the design, regardless of their likeness for the real subject matter.
