The general challenge is that lyrics will be provided for you to create an icon with. You may submit up to two icons. Follow the rules that are posted or your icon will be disqualified. However, you can crop, color, animate, or do pretty much whatever you wish as long as it follows the basic guidelines.
The rules of that challenge will be specified again and again, in order to keep everyone in sync with the rules, or change in rules if necessary.
The entire lyric must be used in your icon - no MORE, no LESS. This applies for every single challenge, so please follow this!
Every week a challenge will be posted. Post your icons as a comment in that post. All comments are screened to ensure anonymity so do not post your icons elsewhere until the results have been posted.
You may submit up to two icons.
All icons must fit LJ standards. 100x100 pixels max, 40 KB max, and .jpg, .png or .gif formats.
Post both image and url versions of your icon(s). Make sure your icon is on a reliable server. www.photobucket.com works well, and it’s free.
There will be no categories here. It makes things a hell out of a lot confusing for everyone involved in voting, tallying, etcetera. Instead, you vote for your top three favorite icons of the ones submitted. From there four winners (Ist, 2nd, 3rd, and Honorable Mentions) will be tallied up. And no voting for yourself. Voting is also screened, unless polls are used.
After votes are tallied and winners are announced as well has Moderator’s Choice (MC). Personalized banners are a thing of the past since no one has the time so you may collect a general banner here if you place. MC winners will generally choose the next challenge, unless they are unable to get back to the moderator who chooses the winner. In that case, the moderator will choose the song.
