Current Theme: [Week 011] Eyes Rutherford
Welcome to spiral_icontest! We're an icon awards community for fans of Spiral, focusing on both the manga and the anime. We will have a new theme each week to submit icons to, so please join us for some fun competition :D New members are always welcome, and even if you don't make icons, please join us in helping to vote on those that do. We hope that you enjoy your stay!

Any member of the community is eligible to participate in the contest. Images must be taken from mangas, artbooks, or anime--no fan art may be used. Under any circumstances. In addition, your icon must be hosted on your own server--i.e., Photobucket or another server.
Criteria for Submission:
+ The icon must be with 100x100 pixels, and be less than 40KB, in accordance with LJ's icon requirements.
+ The icon can not be in use anywhere.
+ The icon must not be more than one week old.
+ The icon must fit the current theme.
- Unless otherwise stated, you are restricted to two icons per challenge. This will change if we get enough participants!
- Do not advertise your icon to get more people to vote for you.
- Icons may not be used until after voting has ended. At that time, the submissions post will be unscreened, and you may request to use icons there. Any icon seen floating around during both submission time and voting time is subject to disqualification.

So here's how it works. Each Sunday night, at approximately 11:00 E.S.T., a new theme will be posted. You then have Sunday night to Friday night to submit an icon--submissions close at 10:00 E.S.T. Friday night (you might be able to sneak one in under the wire, though. >.>). The voting post will be put up then, with directions of how many to vote for and the next week's theme. Voting then lasts from 10:00 E.S.T. Friday to 10:00 E.S.T. Sunday night--the results will be posted directly preceding the new submission post!
When you submit your icons, submit them via comments to the theme post. Your submission must include your name, the icon, and the icon's URL. For example, you will type:
Then, when your comment is posted...
Don't include all three parts? Your icon will not be accepted.
