{01} You must be a member of the community to enter and please read challenge post information carefully, as specific requirements may differ from week to week. If there is a problem or something is unclear, leave a comment in the respective challenge post.

{02} You may enter three icons per challenge unless otherwise stated, and icons must meet LJ requirements - 100x100 pixels and 40kb in size. Animated icon entries for every challenge is allowed unless otherwise stated.

{03} Please keep submitted icons anonymous, so don't post or use your icons anywhere else until challenge voting is over and winners have been announced. If you have used/posted an icon elsewhere before a challenge is over it will result in your icon being disqualified.

{04} Please enter only original and new icons that you yourself have created. Do NOT enter old icons that you think will fit a challenge, or icons created using other people's bases.

{05} Given the mature nature of the tv series, mature and explicit content is allowed in icons. However, an icon may not be accepted if it doesn’t follow challenge requirements or if the image is inappropriate.

{06} If you snag an icon, remember to ask permission from the icon maker and to credit them in your icon keywords. Submission entries will be unscreened once voting is over so you can see who made what icon.


You do not have to be a member of the community to vote.

Do not vote for yourself or otherwise manipulate voting. If you are found to have voted for yourself or otherwise manipulated the voting, all of your icons will be disqualified.

Voting Categories & Points
You vote for your favourite top three icons in order for preference, where 3 points are given for first place, 2 for second and 1 for third. For special voting categories, 1 point per vote applies.

Special Voting Categories
If you think it is difficult keeping the special voting categories apart, try to think of for
instance what icon stands out most because of its Crop/Colouring/Composition? Is it the same icon that you'd consider for more than one of the special voting categories? One icon could be considered for more than one special voting category but that is not common since icons usually are very diverse (and can of course be counted among your top three), so try to make sure you have had a good look on all icons before you submit your votes. Additionally, the special vote categories Best Text/Caption, Most Creative and Most Original can also be featured during voting and should be fairly self-explanatory. If uncertain about special voting categories, please comment on the voting post and ask away!

In the event of ties after a regular voting round, there will be a tiebreaker voting round. If one of your icons is featured in tiebreaker voting, you must select the Nominated voting option for any such tiebreaker.
