Mechapocalypse II Tourney Banners

Caption / Directions
Our upcoming tournament needs some graphics! In this special contest, your task is to design banner ads for the tourney, which will be used for advertising and promotion on Mechapixel, and potentially other websites.

For each submission you make, please include the following:

One (1) 468x60 banner ad -
This would be used off-site and will link to the tournament, so you'll probably want to mention "Photoshop " and "tournament" somewhere in it. Including Mechapixel.com is nice as well. The official tournament name (Mechapocalypse II) must be mentioned in this banner.

Two (2) 136x150 ads -
These will be used on the sidebar. One will be used before the tournament begins (so you should mention the start date of June 5, 2007). The other ad will be used during the tournament, no dates or "coming soon" text should be included.

Finally, include a larger image (as seen on the left), as one will be needed for permanent display on the main tournament info page. It should NOT reflect the tournament as "upcoming", or include any specific dates.

Each entry you submit should contain an overall theme, with the banner variations arranged in a single image, as shown in the example.

Please retain a PSD, TIFF, or some other uncompressed version of your submissions. The individual ads might be requested later, and severe quality loss might ensue if we had to cut them out of your entry.

Credit will be given to the creators of any and all ads used, on the tournament information page.

Please direct any questions about this contest to this thread. Have fun!

I love the idea, but I think a different font could have made it great.
