Wow, great job everyone. Some seriously great banners in that mix!
I'm going to say that Kanon girls are too easy - so I'm not nominating any Kanon banners (makes it significantly easier to pick through a bumper crop of great banners ). I also decided that I should probably not continually nominate from the same series, so I ignored some SHnY banners also. Banners that I really wanted to nominate, but just couldn't quite manage to put in my top three include the two Da Capo banners (using the Sad Girls in Snow show that actually features no snow was, to me, very funny), jedinat's xxxHOLiC one, Riker's 88 one (though I can't figure out where those chibis came from) and Kensuke's Ichigo Mashimaro one. My nominations are:
Personally I think this is the funniest banner in the entire contest. And look at Kairin, she's so sad!

So many banners @_@ I didn't realize till now that so many people worked on them.
Kira_Naruto - 55 (really love this one)
frustra - 22 (same as this one)
shinichi88 - 95 (and this one as well >.>)
Was also going to add one of Green² banners but its only three vote >.> To bad since it has a really! nice overall colour to it, though I'm sure it will get voted for.. =)

I've chosen #73 by Lilith
( the fx are superb + it doesn't contain humongous eye's content + I support the under represented female approach of bishification )
then I'ld like to vote for #56 by Kira_Naruto (this banner illustrates very precisely how I feel on a cold, dark winter day - sometimes )
And a #70 by levian please
( but I had to vote for at least 4 other banners if I only could, inlcuding banner artists like wao, Helly, Skallen and Sora Ishida )
A big thanks to all the competitors (very nice banners you made, and I hope they all get a spot in the banner rotation)

Nr. 1 For Composition & Design.. as expected..
Nr. 1 For Character Choice & Pose..
Nr. 1 Background..
Other banners that gave me a hard time choosing the 3 to nominate..
This banner is just briliant..
But I decided to nominate just 1 for each catagory..
While I think in some respects your banner is better then Jason's..
For example just by looking at your's I can tell you have a more balanced histogram.. although I guess it might be flatter..
Jason's on the other is more then likely one big lump oriented to absolute light..
If you look at some parts like the head.. it almost seems void.. heh.
If the characters were real life.. then you'd have won
But this is anime, and I really like Jason's less detail = more quality concept
Ok there's that and yours is just a little too aliased on the right side.. @_@
by K. Yamato
Haha.. you goofed on this one Jason.. :P
On the first one you got away with that absurd whiteness because the Red of the eyes as well as the balck/dark strands of hair made for excellent contrast with the white.. making for a lively image.. But in this one you have extreme whites everywhere.. especially on the snow-flakes..
Hmm.. you've been playing with the damaging Brightness & Contrast tool haven't you..
Seems like this time you over did it..
The character already seems to have had a low contrast.. you practically deemphasized her out of the banner..
It's a real shame.. I think you were really inspired to choose that character.. I really love the pose, if only she was closer and had more detail..
Nr. 1 Kairin Banner..
Nice concept.. its excellent as a pic..
But as a banner it just doesn't blend as well as others.. that and it has that horrible gray/brown to blue transition on the right side.. (top corner)
Anyway here are several previews to show you what I mean..
Spoiler for Container:
BTW the character is way too flat if you get what I mean..
Actually the entire image is way too flat..
Nr. 1 Funny-Banner
But it doesn't feel winter-like..
She's so cute >.< .. but too far awaay..
Don't get the background either..
This was so tempting.. the banner has a warm feeling to it..
but blue saturation level and the green overlay at the right are such big turn-offs.. totaly ruins the mood IMO..

CrowKenobi - 14
Daniel E. - 17
Frustra - 24
I would have made more but when I saw the number of entries coming in, I decided not to bother. I wouldn't have been able to make mine distinctly different from the other entries. There was just too many good ones to compete with.

I swear, you're a bloody genius.
41- JOJO'S STAR
You've got an interesting use there. ;D
Tacky or not, I don't believe mine is the best, I just believe that I actually put in some effort into this.
