Fandom Banner Challenge
Tuesday February 21st to Thursday February 23rd
We’ve seen great examples of the creative capabilities of our teams and now it’s time to really put those skills to use to create your very own team banner.
Each of the 12 teams will need their very own flag to fly through the next stages of the competition and we want YOU to design them.
All you need to do is design a banner and tweet it to us @RadioTimes using #LeagueOfFandoms. If you don’t use the hashtag we might miss it so be sure to include it.
We’ll pick the best banners, which will then be put to the Fandoms for a vote.
You’ve got until midnight (GMT) on Thursday February 23 to get your creations in (that’s Thursday night/Friday morning UK time) so get those creative cogs in gear and best of luck!
Watch this space for the rest of February’s fixtures, coming VERY soon
