    Starting today; A contest for the best creation of an animated MIDIBuddy banner. The deminsions are 468x60 and they must be on a continuous loop. Try to keep the files under 15k. The font used in the graphic in the upper left is 'Stop'. You may have more than one submission. I may also use banners in the future that didn't necessaraly win, but are still cool. ;)

    First place: $500
    Second: $250
    Third: $100

    sheesh.... I am keeping the colors low... Black, Maroon, and a few shades of grey.... If I optimize it takes it to 10K.... BUT the movement leaves a 'shadow' effect that kills the effect :(

    Any ideas?
