So there's lots of bannermakers down in Knockpixel Alley who, if they're anything like me, like bannering for fun and improving their graphic design skills. I know the BA has challenges periodically for their rankings, but what about just a general challenge for the non-BA'ers every once and a while? I'm thinking like a weekly (or biweekly) challenge, sort of like the weekly drabble challenges over in TTB, only for banners!
For example, one week could be a challenge to make a banner with a certain picture of Harry, another incorporate a quote into a banner... etc. It wouldn't have to be for points like the drabble challenges are (though that could be a good incentive) and the winners wouldn't have to be necessarily 1st, 2nd, 3rd.... but maybe 'best overall' 'most creative' etc. I know Critique Galore was popular for a while and I thought maybe a challenge for bannermakers might be a fun thing to do while waiting for requests.
And I'd be willing to run it if needed. I'm sure the BA'ers would make better judges than me but I wouldn't want to throw my idea on their shoulders.
