Xenosaga Icon Awards

..:the perfect unbroken chain:..

Posting Access:
Select Members
This is a competitive icon community – banners WILL be made for winners every week.

Each week a theme will be announced on Monday. Icon makers have until Friday to submit their icons. Voting will begin Saturday and end Sunday. Both voting and submissions will be done through screened comments. First through third place will be announced, with possible moderator’s choice award given.

The Rules:

1. This community is for Xenosaga, encompassing everything from the anime to both video games that are now out and the other video games that are to come. THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE XENOGEARS. Sorry.
2. Please do not vote for an icon simply because it’s yours. If you truly feel that yours is the best, it is all right to vote for it. But try to be fair in judging. Also, don't just vote for an icon because your friend made it. -.-
3. Icons must be new! Please no older icons, and we'd prefer if you made them especially for the theme. Do not post them up before the contest is over! Also, DO NOT submit icons that you have entered in other icon communities' contests. If you do so we will have to disqualify the entry.
4. Two icons per week per person unless otherwise specified.
5. You may vote for up to three icons. Please vote in order of your favorites so the mods aren’t confused. You MAY vote for your own icon, but please don’t advertise yourself all over the place and get your friends to come vote for you. Voting is only open to members of the community.
6. Icons must be made from official caps, scans, and art. No fanart, doujinshi, or cosplayers.
7. ANYONE WHO FLAMES ANYONE ELSE GETS BANNED. PERIOD. No warning, no nothing. Just get your shit and OUT.
8. Proper credit must be given in the keywords if you wish to take one of the icons submitted here for personal use. Also, make sure you ask the icon maker directly for permission.
9. Icons MUST contain the word from a word theme, unless you are able to convey the theme without words. Variations of the word (such as -ing or -ed) are also acceptable. For lyrical themes, icons must contain any 3 consecutive words from the provided lyrics, unless otherwise specified.
10. Icons must fit livejournal criteria- 100x100 pixels or less and no more than 40 kb.

How to Submit:

Once the theme is given you have until Friday ends to get your submissions in. Comment to the specified post (comments will be screened so do it signed in- not anonymously) with this information:

Your icon submission: < img src= " url goes here " > (remove spaces)
URL of icon:
Anything else we may need to know:

I will be uploading the icons to a photobucket account specifically for the community so voting can remain anonymous and you won’t be biased because so-and-so did a certain icon.

How to Vote:

Voting is done screened comment style, by replying to the post with the entries (logged in).

Make sure to have your votes in by the end of Sunday.

And any member can vote! Whether or not you made an icon doesn’t matter.

Banners will be awarded to all three places weekly, and the winning icon will be set as the community default.

If you have any questions or suggestions please let the moderators know (a moderator list is below).
