The Contest [o1] Each week, four pictures will be posted by mmm_windex or slaygalthessilycan not add text nor can you animate the icons</b>. We are going for still textless icons here. [o2] You can enter up to two icons per week. You can't enter two icons from the same picture. Each icon must use only one of the provided pictures. No blending of two or more pictures allowed. Blending of the same picture is perfectly alright. [o3] You will have from Monday, when the pictures are posted, to Saturday when the poll is posted, to submit your icon entries.
Rules [o1] Icons must be textless. [o2] They must fit LiveJournal standards. No larger than 40k, no bigger than 100x100 pixels, and the icons must be in PNG, JPG, or GIF format. [o3] Do not display your icons anywhere until after voting has ended. I can't stress that enough. [o4] Do not take or alter someone else's icon without their permission. That's just not cool, yo.
Submissions [o1] Entries will be posted in comment to the challenge post. All comments will be screened to keep icons annoymous. [o2] When posting your icons, please post in both img src and URL form. [o3] You must use a server that allows hotlinking, such as Photobucket. [o4] Any icons not adhering to the above rules will be disqualified.
Voting [o1] Voting will take place from some time Saturday to Monday. [o2] Your will vote via a poll, and will choose your 3 favorite icons. [o3] No voting for yourself. [o4] You may only vote once. [o5] If we notice a trend of the same people voting for a certain person's icon, the submissions will be disqualified and a warning will be sent to all persons involved in the matter. If it persists, you will be banned from the community. This isn't a popularity contest.
Winners will be announced Monday, along with the new week's pictures. There will be first, second, and third place winners. Mod's Choice will be given to an icon that we feel should have gotten more votes than it did. If you would like a banner each time you win, please reply to this post and let me know. Thanks. :D
