In keeping with the tradition, I am happy to announce the Best Flag Competition in February 2021! This contest was started many years ago by Anime Daisuki and has been revived last year by HumanSanity , along with a Best Motto Competition.
Best Flag Competition
We are looking for the best and most creative national flag, which will be determined by vote. If you would like to participate, you can submit your flag until the 7th of February. After this, the flags will be randomly sorted into groups and voted upon from the 8th to the 14th until the winner will be determined in the final voting round between the 15th and 21st of February. All Islanders and Friends of the Islands are welcome to participate!
We will hold two separate votes, one on the forum and the other on-site:
Those who do have a forum account, can sign up by posting in the sign-up thread. All forum submissions will be sorted into groups and voted upon via forum poll from the 8th to the 14th. The final winner will be announced on the 21st of February after the last voting round and will win a Season 1 Anime Daisuki and 25000 Tacos. The runner up will receive a prize as well, a Season 2 Knootoss and 10000 Tacos.
If you don't have a forum account, you may sign up by sending a telegram to Thedairos. You don't need to send in a picture of your flag, it suffices to send me the link to the nation whose flag you are submitting. It should be a nation that you control, but it doesn't necessarily have to be the flag of your main nation. Please keep the flag you are submitting on this nation for the whole duration of the contest. On-site submissions will as well be sorted into groups and the winner will be determined by regional polls on NationStates. The player with the best submission shall receive a Season 2 Sierra Lyricalia.
Rules for the participation:
- The flag has to be your own individual artwork, unless someone else created it for you, in which case you should give credit to the creator. Official or already existing flags of countries, regions, organizations etc. will not be accepted.
- Your submission has to be the flag of a nation that you control, which doesn't necessarily have to be your main nation.
- Only one submission per player will be accepted.
- Your flag mustn't contain any hateful, fascist, racist, or otherwise inappropriate content and has to be PG-13. The rules of NationStates apply.
- Flags should be submitted until the 7th of February, either in the forum sign-up thread or via telegram to Thedairos.
Best Banner Contest
Simultaneously, we will be running a Best Banner Competition where we are looking for the most creative and beautiful national banner! The event will be held on the forum. To enter, you can post a national banner that you created in the Banner Submission Thread that will be linked here once sign-ups are open. If you do not have a forum account and still would like to enter, you can send your submission via telegram to Thedairos. Submissions will be open from the 8th to the 14th of February, followed by a week of voting via forum poll until the 21st of February. The winner receives a Season 2 Imperium Anglorum. The same rules as for the flag contest apply. According to NationStates, the optimal size ratio for creating a banner is about 4:1 and it shouldn't be bigger than 1200x400 pixels.
coming in March, more info here!
