You too can become an artist in residence and have your artwork used as the banner for Scottishgames.net. The banner is changed on a weekly basis, running Sunday-Sunday.
Every time we change the banner we list you in the Artists In Residence page and give you a nice write-up with links to you, your company and any other information you’d like in there. It’s perfect, to build into your portfolio, increase your profile online or to promote your latest title…
It’s open to everyone – individuals, organisations and companies. It can be something original, or an existing image (and this includes screenshots from games, photos from office parties, concept art – etc.)
The banner size is 940 x 150 pixels, but you can submit larger pieces. We’ll crop, resize or otherwise change them to fit. If the ‘Scottishgames.net’ isn’t on there, we may superimpose it – in a sympathetic and stylish way, naturally.
We’ll use *every* idea (unless it’s inappropriate, offensive or flat out rubbish) and ever image used will be credited and listed.
There are no limits or restrictions on the content (apart from good taste and talent). The only requirement for the banner is that the title and URL of the site are included:
The Scottish Games Network – http://www.scottishgames.net
If you’d like to submit something, simply send it to us via e-mail.
Here you will find the roll of honour, listing those who have contributed artwork to the glory of Scottishgames…
