For ten years now, the moderators here at Giant Bomb have upheld a tradition unlike any other. This contest challenges anyone and everyone in the GB Community to create E3 banners that will be placed at the top of each press conference's discussion thread in the forums. Whether you're a Photoshop master or can't find the color blue in MS Paint, you could win!
E3 2018 is now ten days away! Well, unofficially. EA is doing their thing outside of E3 again and...just go with it. Read the rules carefully and start making beautiful, awesome, terrible, and/or funny stuff!
Firstly, each of the winners will each get a FREE MONTH of Giant Bomb Premium. If you are already a premium member, an extra month will be added to your current subscription.
Secondly, each winner will have VIP (Blue) status in Giant Bomb chat throughout E3. This includes the press conferences and the live night shows. That means no cool-down for you! Just keep in mind that we will remove it if you abuse it.
Thirdly, for the first time ever, your banner might be featured...somewhere else during Giant Bomb's E3 festivities.
Here are the details about when each conference is being held. Use these as you wish. Or don't. Or use incorrect information if you want! It hasn’t stopped people from winning in the past.
Now you know the rules and the basic info you should probably include. So, get to photoshopping, drawing, or even photographing! There's a template if you need a visual aid. And, if you need some inspiration, just check out all of the past winners here.
Just remember. This is a contest. It's really fuckin' hard. But, you know what we gotta do?
Let's feast, y'all.
