Welcome to fellowsh_stills, an icon contest community which features the cast of Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings movie trilogy. The stillness movement was started by quebelly. Kudos to her!
Stillness means that the icons cannot be animated, ever.
Banner makers: all_malocks, fire_icons
[x] Every Tuesday the moderator will put up two challenges, one of which will feature a specific actor/actress, and one more general one. Examples: A pairing, a screen capture/scan/photo, a certain colour, a b&w challenge, a cropping challenge, etc.
[x] Each member can enter three icons per challenge.
[x] If you plan on doing both, please enter all icons at once. They're easier to keep track of that way!
[x] Icons must fit the Live Journal standards: No bigger than 100x100 px and 40 KB, in either JPG, GIF or PNG format.
[x] The contest will be anonymous, so please do not post your icons elsewhere, including your own journal. Also, do not include your username in the icon filename.
[x] You may only enter brand new, original icons. Not icons you've already made, or use bases/blanks from other people. Make them from scratch!
[x] This community is dedicated to the LotR cast, not the characters. So please do not feature them as Aragorn, Legolas, Arwen, etc. *NEW*
[x] No animation. Duh?
[x] If all the rules stated above are not followed, the icon(s) will be disqualified.
Entering the Contest:
[x] You must be a member of the community to enter.
[x] Post the icons in a comment to the challenge post, in both IMG SRC form and URL form. Make sure to host them on a server that allows hotlinking! I recommend either Photobucket or Greatest Journal. If your icon doesn't show up, it won't be featured in the contest.
[x] Comments will be screened.
Timeline: (Not sure about the time differences? Check here.)
[x] Challenges go up: Tuesday.
[x] Deadline: Tuesday at noon, GMT.
[x] Voting: Tuesday-Wednesday.
[x] Results posted: Thursday.
Voting & Results:
[x] Many communities seem to prefer voting via comments, but I'll be sticking with LJ polls. Maybe I'm just lazy that way.
[x] The amount of icons you may vote for in each poll will depend on how many entries were posted that week. They will range from 1-3 for each challenge.
[x] Anyone can vote, but don't ask people to come vote for you. That is just incredibly lame.
[x] You also can't vote for your own icons. That way you'll get disqualified.
[x] Every week, one icon from each challenge will receive a Mod's Choice award.
[x] When I post the results, I will ask if the winners want banners. Those who say yes, get one. ^^
