Using Your Award

Save your award to your computer then upload the graphic to your web site. A link back to this site must be placed with the award. You may use a text link or link the graphic.

You must not alter the award in any way other than to proportionally resize it, but you may lose quality in doing so. This is not our responsibility and we will not undertake to make awards of different sizes. Awards must not be colourized, textured, have text deleted, changed or other text added and it must not be added to other graphics.

Site Names

Site names are added automatically to all awards. They should not contain symbols or signs such as @ ~ ' + or & as they will not be recognized when added to awards. We optimise the text to fit the majority of names on 3 lines. If your site name is very long you may need to change it when you join 1Award. Test Your Site Name.

Do Not Direct Link

Do not direct link (hot link) to our images. This is an illegal practice known as bandwidth theft. All banners and awards must be saved to your own hard drive and uploaded to your own web space
