Hi everybody,

the voting for the Tree & Flower Awards is well under way, and it's time again to make visual goodies for the authors! Like in the previous years we want to offer general as well as nominee icons and banners for this year's awards, and need banners for the winners of each category.

At this moment we're looking for volunteers who are willing to create these visual goodies.

If you have some skill with a digital paintbrush (or a real one!) and would like to help us make banners and icons, do let us know. We could really use some help. Before you sign up, we will give an indication of what we’re looking for.

The Many Paths To Tread
2015 Tree and Flower Awards

* Nomination Banners & Icons

We need a range of sizes and designs of banners for participants who want to add this to their story to show that they have been nominated. Email any banners you make to us at websmith AT lotrgfic DOT com, and we will post them to the community for others to use. You will be credited for your work, of course. Please follow the guidelines below.

Banners/icons must have "Many Paths To Tread Tree and Flower Awards 2015 Nominee," "MPTT Tree and Flower Award 2015 Nominee," somewhere on them. We're not picky and just happy with all that will be created. :)

Any size banner is acceptable. Icons should be 100px by 100px or smaller.

* Category Winner banners/Icons

We hope to find enough volunteers who are interested to make banners for the many categories the awards will have. Like last year we ask of the banner artist to sign up for a category for which they can make a banner for. Once you've created one, you sign up for a different one etc.

If you want to be involved, do send an e-mail to manypaths AT lotrgfic DOT.com and we will be in touch. Signing up for more information does not obligate you to actually make any artwork if you for whatever reason cannot make banners. But if you'd like to know more, please let us know!

Any size banner is acceptable. Icons should be 100px by 100px or smaller.

Important announcement!!!

You must have permission to use any artwork or photography that you use on the banner/icon. This means that any artwork or photography used must satisfy at least one of the conditions below:

    * The artwork/photography is your own work, or you own the rights to the work.

    * The artwork/photography is in the public domain.

    * You have written permission from the artist/photographer to use her or his work, including making modifications, such as cropping or adding text.

    * The artwork/photography is clearly labelled with permission to use the work for non-profit uses, including making modifications, such as cropping or adding text.

    * Screen captures from the movies are acceptable.

Any artwork or photography used must be suitable for all audiences, i.e., it should not include nudity, blood/gore, or anything more than mild sexuality (hugging, kissing, etc.).

Files should be saved in .JPG, .PNG, or .GIF file formats. Please use the Save for Web feature (or its equivalent for your software), if available, to keep file sizes manageable.

Thanks :)

Hmm. I'll email you. Just curious, but do you know when voting will open?

No, not yet, but I'll need the banners and icons on September 27th the latest, if that helps.

We are working on the polls, and I am hopeful to have them up by late Monday or sometime on Tuesday, if I don't mess them up too much.

Okay! No rush, I was just curious. Thanks for the info.

I'm hopeless at graphics but would be happy for any of my photos on my Flickr site to be used for banners.
