I've noticed a lot of really awesome banners on the website and think a best banners category would be cool.

Sorry Mare, I see you don't like banners too much.

While it's a nice suggestion, I don't think it would fit. The Felix Awards are all about the quality of stories, not so much the banners. Just my thoughts though lol.

There was already discussion actually during last year's Felix Awards about having a best banner category. It's kind of early to really think about it though considering it's still about 10 months away from the awards.

I think it's stupid to have a best banner award. The Felix awards are all about great writing, not about who can make the best banners.

While I do like banners, I don't think it's such a good idea for the awards.  Not everyone uses banners, so it would be a bit unfair as only banner users would be given consideration, instead of everyone having a chance with the way it is at the moment.  Does that make sense?  It does in my head anyway!

I personally wouldn't want to see a best banner category. That would be like book publishers giving an award for best cover (Caldecott aside of course).  I mean someone could have an awesome banner but the story could be riddled with issues.  Don't judge a book by it's covere!

With that said, I'll go play with Photoshop some more, haha

It does make sense. Everyone who writes has a chance to be nominated/win an award, but not everyone who writes makes banners or has epic photoshop skills. That, and AC is a writing website when we as a group have the common interest of writing and helping each other out with that particular craft.

It was just a thought. Not all suggestions have to be used. I see your points of view.
