An Icontest based on themes and prompts

Welcome to icontested a community with no defined fandom, just prompts and themes to be followed in the weekly challenges.


[x] Every Sunday a new challenge will go up
[x] Each member can enter only two icons per theme/prompt unless stated otherwise.


[x] Icons must fit the Live Journal standards: No bigger than 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.
[x] Please make sure that you follow the theme/prompt for the week. If you feel that your icon needs explaining, feel free to give a brief description.
[x] No animation. .
[x] Please don't take any of the contest icons without the creator's permission.
[x] If you'd like to use an icon, leave a comment in the voting post and the mod will alert the maker.
[x] If all the rules stated above are not followed the icon will be disqualified.


[x] You must be a member of the community to enter!
[x] Make sure to host them on a server that allows hotlinking! We recommend either Photobucket.com or
Imageshack.us. If your icon doesn't show up it won't be featured in the contest.
[x] All comments will be screened in the submission posts.
[x] Post the icons in a comment to the challenge post in both IMG and URL form:
[x] Please be sure to include your user name in the URL of your icons.

[x] You'll only be able to vote for 3 icons (unless stated otherwise) so choose carefully!
[x] Anyone can vote but don't ask people to come vote for you. That is just incredibly lame.
