Design a banner ad campaign for us within a single webpage. There is a possibility that we may accept more than one design and offer runner up cash prizes for 2nd 3rd &4th designs that we like. We are open to any feedback about this contest to help make it successful. Please read the full description and give us our honest opinion.
Plant a Tree
We need a design from the ground up (literally). Design a "Plant A Tree" campaign for us. Offer up some of your freshest looks in a single webpage format. Fill the page with at least three (3) "Plant a Tree" banner ads. Animated gifs or flash (preferred) are encouraged, but not required. All three ads can be of the same concept, just different layouts. However, if you would like to make several different concepts and you feel it gives your entry the winning edge, please feel free to do so.
The basic jest of the campaign is to plant a tree in US soil for one dollar.
Attempted Slogans (feel free to make your own):
A Noble Idea: Plant a Tree
Plant a tree, it's just a buck.
Get green for not a lot of green, plant a tree.

This is our third contest at 99designs. We really liked the outcome
of our last contest and we learned a few things on the way. For
instance we realize that we can keep the designers happy and moving in
a forward direction by offering as much feedback as possible. At the
same time, it is difficult for us to comment on each mock-up, so we
will make notes on our most favorite entries. If you get zero stars
within 24 hrs. and no notes, you can assume your entry is not what we
had in mind. In essence, we are only going to offer positive feedback
with slight change requests to your entry.
