Icon Contest -- Starting October 31st

Post  Bailey on Sat Oct 16, 2010 4:33 pm

If there's enough interest I'd like to host an icon contest. I'd post a picture (Emily related) and anyone wanted to participate would be able to make up to 3 icons using only this picture. Once all entries are received, I'd post them in a poll, and let everyone vote on their favorite! The winner could get a temporary special rank on the forum.

Please post if you're interested!

If I even knew how to make Icons I would totally be in, but I'd love to vote and see what people come up with!

Awesome girls! I'll find a picture this weekend sometime and post it. Anyone who wants to play can submit three icons (I'll put more details on what you can and can't do, to keep it fair) ... if I get more than 5 icons, I won't play ... but if we don't, I'll add a couple of my own just to make it more fun. Smile Then I'll post the icons in a poll and everyone can vote! I've done these before and I always loved it.

I'm glad there's interest. Smile

Ok guys! Here's your image for the contest. I thought this would be a pretty picture to look at for a week. Smile Make up to 3 icons following the rules below and send them to me (via PM) by Friday evening. If you need any help or have any questions, post them here or PM me! Again, I think we can have a fair contest if we get at least 5 entries, so really I just need 2 people to play. If I have 5 by Friday, I'll post them all in a poll and everyone can vote. The winner will get their "newbie" ranking under their forum name temporarily changed to whatever they want! (Well, as long as it's not too outrageous or something. Wink)

1. All icons must be 100 x 100 pixels.

2. No words on the icon.

3. No animation.

4. You may crop as you wish, i.e. you can make the icon all Emily or all David, or whatever!


The rules are just to keep things more equal and fair. Can't wait to see what you guys come up with!

Lol. That could be done, I'd be happy to help! Do you have any type of picture altering programs on your computer? The easiest/free way to do it would probably be with picnik.com if you don't already have some software. It's not fancy, but this is just for fun, so it'd be a way to participate, check it out!

Any other information you want, PM me and I'll help you in any way I can. Smile
