Welcome to faith_stillness, an non animated icon contest originally for Faith/Eliza Dushku icons now expanded to include her roles on Tru Calling and Dollhouse, created by palmaceae and modded by juliet42. Each week a challenge will be provided. It could be an theme, screencaps and or a quote. Then members will make an icon from those and people will vote on them. Since all submissions are done through comments, We're the only one that needs to have posting access. Don't ask for posting access.
Rules: 1. Your submissions cannot be animated! (It's kind of the point of the entire contest) 2. Your submissions must remain anonymous. This means you cannot use your icon or post it anywhere till the voting period is over. 3. No telling your friends to vote for you. It breaks rule #2 and it's not fair to the people who follow the rules. 4. No voting for yourself. It's just lame. 5. Make sure your submission fits LJ's size standards. 6. Please don't take any of the contest icons without the creator's permission.
Submitting: 1. At the beginning of each contest I will make a post where you can reply with your submission. Comments will be screened so the only people who can see your submission are you and me. 2. You will need a host that allows remote linking. Geocities/angelfire/tripod won't work. However, photobucket (http://www.photobucket.com) is a decent free image host that allows remote linking. Many icon makers use it. 3. You will post your icon in the appropriate post, and when voting time comes around, one of the mods will post them. 4. When posting an icon, please post them like this:
Timeline: Currently, the timeline goes like this: A new challenge will be given every other week, which means challenges run for two weeks. Icons are due Friday night 10:00 EST of the second week. Voting will commence until Sunday night, and results will be put up by Tuesday. Once on challenge is over a new challenge will be posted anytime between Sunday and Tuesday. Sorry it's a little sketchy. There may be delays, times may change, because us mods have lives. Please consult the current week's entry post to confirm times.
Voting: 1. You don't have to be a member of the community to vote. 2. Anonymous votes will not be counted. 3. Please vote for you choice for first, second, and third place. 4. The Mod's Choice award is given to an icon of the mod's choosing. Basically it's just an icon that was thought to be nifty but was over looked in the voting. 5. The moderators are allowed to participate in the contest, as it is anonymous, but will not be eligible for honorable mention.
