As you guys should already know, from time to time we mix things up a bit and run creative giveaways that give the most talented of our readers a real chance to win something big. Remember the 404 page design (also see this), which happens to be my favorite contest so far?

The banner design contest was created to run in a similar vein, and now that we've finally had enough time to sort through all the submission (there were over 150 links to look through), we decided to award the prize, a brand new Lenovo IdeaPad K1 Tegra 2 tablet, generously provided by NVIDIA, to...

The Winner

... Christy of brainerddesign.com! She went through a few iterations and ended up with the following:

We loved Christy's original, cartoonish design, and while it was very hard to pick just one winner, we felt like her work deserved the top prize. Congratulations and enjoy your well deserved new tablet!

Runners-Up

After seeing all the hard work the participants were putting into their entries, we decided that the runners-up should get to take something home too. If you created one of the designs below and send us the original files, we'll send you an Android Police shirt of your choosing - just send an email to giveaways [at] AP.

This series of banners was a close second - it's very clean, bright, and easy to love.
