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.

    Wow, thank you so much! I'm so glad you liked my design.

  • Michal

    I appreciate the work put in winning design but srsly I think this is one of the worst in comparison to others. Just my opinion.

    • Shockaho

      I completely agree. No hard feelings, but I am not sure how that design won.

      • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

        It was original, creative, funny, intriguing - it's not your standard banner you're used to, that's for sure - but that's partly why we picked it.

        • Erik I Graul

          Ok... A few questions... How do i go about getting the T-shirt? Also any t-shirt designs, size, or hoodie? Or just a t-shirt? And what do u need from me... The png file or the saved date that was made from the program i used? And when i email yous... just go to your email and under subject put giveaways along with attached original files? Not sure exactly what to do...

        • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

          Erik, just email the highest level original files to giveaways@ap and we'll get things going.

  • Amy and Ben R.

    Well done. I think you picked the best one. Good job Christy!

  • Maniac

    wow nice banners.. all those are awsome. You guys must have had some time trying to pick a winner.

    Great work everyone!

    Congrats Christy!

  • Erik I Graul

    Congratulations to Christy!!! I must say i did have fun making my designs... And it was the first time in a long time i got to use my creativeness... That made me happy!!! But i would be lying if i said im not disappointed!!! For the most part i thought it was about the best designs not the best idea that would win... Also the one i was most creative and spent the most time working on didnt make the cut... Here's what i thought would have been my best work... http://i.imgur.com/nIwiu.png ... I like my design that made runner up... But i was just getting started with that one!!! But thanks guys!!! I'll see yous in the next creative design contest!!! And i guarantee I'll win the next one...lol Good job every one!!!

    Well done too the winner.
    Not my personal choice i have too say but it won all the same so congratz on that.

  • ChumbleSpuzz

    So, I guess that the androids in the winning entry are famous TV police characters. I see Thomas Magnum (Magnum PI) on the far left and Kojak (I think) on the far right. Who are the others?

    • http://www.brainerddesign.com Christy

      You got it! The girl is based on Officer Stacy Sheridan (Heather Locklear) from T.J. Hooker, and the one with the glasses is based on Ponch (Erik Estrada) from CHiPs. The one in the middle was the last one drawn, not really based on anyone, but I wanted one wearing more traditional police hat. =)

      • Erik G

        Funny I was thinking of reno 911

  • poke50uk
