Hello there! Welcome to the lovely icontest op_awards solely dedicated to one of the longest anime/manga series' out there, One Piece!(Or that I've known of~can it seriously beat DBZ?) Moderated by: zethrun
What is One Piece exactly? Well, the series is about one adventurous young boy, Monkey D. Luffy who hopes to find out the mysterious treasure One Piece and become King of the Pirates! With the help of his growing pirate crew, will he be able to get to his dream?
Here at op_awards, we throw any kind of challenge to you. Let it be regular, lyrical, textless, anything you can manage to test your icon making skills to see if you can win! Of course, we're all having friendly competition here. =]
1)Only members are allow to participate in the voting and the participating. Please join first!
2)Only characters from One Piece are allowed in the icontest. Duh(Tis common sense)
3)No fanart or doujinshi or cosplay images are allowed! Unless the images are purely your own(still no cosplay images). Artbook images are allowed.
4)Each joined member may submit two icons, otherwise stated by me or the other moderators when posting the weekly themes.
5)All submissions have to submit to Livejournal standards. Meaning they need to be 100x100 max by size and the minimum of 40KB max. Not that hard, right?
6)Meaning awards, any icon style is welcome! Animated, stillness, textless, otherwise stated, any of those are welcome in entries.
7)Submissions have to be made fresh for the week's theme. Icons no older than 3 days maybe submitted. I have good eyes so if I see the same icon you placed as a submission right out in some other community, you will be disqualified!...and I don't want to do that, I'm a nice person. :D
8)DO NOT SHOW YOUR ICON SUBMISSIONS BEFORE OR DURING THE VOTING! It kinda ruins the whole icontest thing and we wanna feel cool here, right? :D? All entrants will remain annoymous during the voting, and the names will be revealed with the winning icons post. If you are caught, you will be disqualified.
9)Do not advertise your icon in other places for people to vote for it.
10)Please no complaints ;__; I know it's heart-breaking to see that an icon you've worked so hard on lost, but there's always next time, right? Please be kind to one another, and the mods. We're here to have fun!...not to kill each other. ._.
11)Have fun!♥(I know our layout isn't anything right now, but in the future, we'll get better. :D)
12)If you want, wait until after the winners are announced, if you would like to ask to take an icon. Just make sure to credit that person!
13)Moderators and Banner makers are also allowed to enter the themes.
If you've been through other icontests, you've seen these right? Well, I'll just post this incase anyone is unsure.
To submit an icon for a weekly challenge,(don't worry, the post will be labeled with the challenge name and week), please leave a comment to that screened post with icon and the icons URL, just like this:
Like I said, all submissions are screened and only the moderators of the community will be able to see them. At the ending time of the submissions, the moderator assigned the week will post up the voting and members of the community will be able to vote, so join to vote! All votes are screened and then that moderator will post up the winning results, including the name of the banner maker for that week. When submissions are closed, they are CLOSED. Submissions after that will not be accepted.
1)Please include the top three icons you prefer, including a special category for that week.
2)You cannot vote for an icon more than just ONCE.
3)DO NOT VOTE FOR YOURSELF! That includes not telling your friends not to vote for you. All voting will be based on skill and merit. No bashing each other!
4)If there is a time for a tie, a tiebreaker post will be made, with the icons, and the first 3 posts will determine the winner for the category.
5)You must Join the Community in order to vote, or else your vote will not count.
6)If there is a special category set, you must also vote for the Special Category.
