Welcome to anime_abc, a weekly icon contest with a focus on anime & manga icons. Every week, you will be given a letter in the alphabet (we go in order, starting with A). Then, you make an icon that has to do with that letter. A word in the text of the icon could start with the letter, the anime/movie/manga that the icon is from starts with the letter, a character in the icon’s name starts with the letter, etc…

You submit by leaving a comment on the challenge post with your icon. Comments on challenge posts will be screened, so only you and the original poster will see them.

Please use the following format for submission. Include the icon, url, series name, and how the challenge letter relates to your icon. Your submission should look something like this:


http://yourURLhere.com
Series Name
A is for Anime_ABC

1. Contestants may enter two icons per challenge so long as each icon has a different use of the letter.
2. If you submit an icon, it must be your own personal work. Do not copy tutorials or anyone else's icons
3. All icons must meet LiveJournal standards — 40kb and under and 100x100px or less in .GIF, .JPG, or .PNG format.
4. Icons must come from anime or manga source material. Video games and live action images are not allowed in this community but we do allow video game manga and anime adaptations. Fanart & doujinshi is also not allowed. Please know where your images come from!
5. Icons must be remotely hosted on a site that allows direct linking (We recommend Photobucket, Tinypic, and Imageshack).
6. Keep icons anonymous throughout the run of the contest (don’t post them elsewhere until voting is over). You may not submit an icon that you have used or posted elsewhere. Do not show others your icons with the intent of getting them to vote for your icons. Mods keep track of IP addresses and will ban members who use sock puppet journals to vote for themselves.
7. Your icon must be fresh for the challenge (made within 7 days of it). You may neither re-use PSDs nor enter variations. Cookie-cutter icons are not tolerated and mods reserve the right to make the call.
8. *IMPORTANT* Icon representations can't be too subjective (meaning the representation can be left up to too much interpretation and the letter representation is not obvious). A mod will always get at least one or two more mods' opinions on the subjectivity of an icon. We will attempt to warn you if your icon is too subjective. You can find more information about subjectivity in this post. Please contact a mod if you have more questions.
T O V O T E

Voting occurs in response to the voting post via a poll or comments. The results of the vote/comments to voting post will not be screened. You must be a member of the community to vote. All members of the community are allowed to vote regardless of whether they submitted an icon. You vote for you top three icons (votes are weighted, so make sure to vote in proper rank). You may not vote for your own icon.

R E S U L T S

Based on the results of the voting, winners will place first, second, and third. In addition, a Moderator’s Choice icon will be announced with the results if there are more than 10 icons entered that week.

When the winners are posted, please comment to that post if you would like a banner. You will also be asked to provide your Original image(s), textures/brushes and font name (if applicable) with your comment. It is not mandatory but would be a great assistance to our bannermakers.
