Create a FORT TV Show Banner!
FORT members who possess some skills in graphics/image design can show off their skills and submit their custom-made banners for TV shows in the "Reality Shows: Current or About to Air" group of forums at the top of the Forum Index Page.
There are two kinds of banners you can design, depending on the show: You can make a single banner that covers an entire season of a reality show, or if you have the time and can keep up, you can produce weekly banners that are updated to show the current state of play in the season (see the Top Chef or Big Brother banners).
Banners are only used for shows that appear in the top portion of the board (and are bumped down to the On Hiatus forum in between seasons). Banners are not used for shows in the Other Reality Shows forum, or other forum groups.
All submitted banners must use the following guidelines:
Typical banners have the show's logo/name on it, plus any season identifier; perhaps the host and/or judges; if the cast isn't too large to fit neatly on the banner, you can include them too, but you must show names by the faces. You can browse through the existing banners in the "Shows We're Covering" and "On Hiatus" forum groups for examples and inspiration.
- Size: Maximum 800 pixels wide x 200 pixels tall (96-150 dpi range optimum)
- Must be in .jpg format, with a file size smaller than 200K, (the smaller the better)
- Must have "fansofrealitytv.com" somewhere on it
- Should have your username somewhere on it (sign your work!)
- Weekly updated banners must visibly show eliminated contestants as having been eliminated (grayed out, made smaller & moved to the side, etc.)
We will update this thread when shows that will be needing banners are premiering soon. You can also ask if a banner for a current show needs a refresh, or a more detailed version. If you have a banner ready to show, PM one of the Mods with a link to the banner image.

Re: Create a FORT TV Show Banner!
Current shows in need of a new banner updated to the current season: We could also use a general banner for America's Next Top Model.
Also, the season premiere of Amazing Race has been moved up to March 30th, so it will need a banner sooner than expected, if anyone is interested.
