Homegrown Banners

Hey kids, we know you’ve got ’em, and we want to see ’em. Turn your best Homegrown photos into PDD banners. We’ll try to rotate Homegrown-specific banners during the Homegrown Festival. Same rules apply, the image must be 960 pixels wide by 167 pixels high. Don’t stretch or squish the image to make it fit, that always looks bad. The Perfect Duluth Day logo will be added by PDD’s art department. Or, if you’d like, you can add it. 

E-mail if you want the Photoshop template with the logo

E-mail your banners to [email protected], and we’ll start organizing them.

Also, a reminder, the banners go up on Flickr eventually. If anybody wants to add info about their shots in the Flickr comments, that would be cool.

Zen Identity @ The Cove 1991

Feel free to leave comments and carry on the discussion about this great band at that location.
