Credit goes to quebelly for her stillness communities idea :)
1. Your submissions cannot be animated! That's, after all, the whole point of this community. 2. Your submissions must remain anonymous. You cannot use your icon anywhere until the voting is over. 3. Do not vote for yourself, nor get your friends to vote for you. 4. Only new, original icons may be submitted. 5. Make sure your submission fits LJ's size standards. (40kb and 100x100 MAX) 6. Do not take submissions/winners' icons unless you have their permission. 7. You must be logged in to LJ to enter and vote. If you are not logged in, your entries and votes will not be counted.
Each week, several Maura images (screencaps, photoshoots, promo stills, publicity shots, etc) will be posted. You will have one week to create icons from the images and submit your icons to the post at which you found the original images, in both img src and url form. Example:
All comments to the challenge entries will be screened, so your icons will remain anonymous. Once the deadline is up, a voting post will be made, and you will vote for your favorite three icons (comments screened again). The mod will tally the votes and post winners (1st, 2nd, and 3rd) as well as mod's choice. Banners will be made for the winners who request them. The banner makers for the community are: iulieki, sweetveritas, the_dibbler, and iconillusion.
Sister communities are other stillness icontests, and affiliates are any other journals that are icon or Maura related, whether personal or community. Our list is here. If you'd like to be a sister community or affiliate, comment there as well.
