Welcome to jmusic_abc! A community based off of anime_abc except instead of focusing on anime and manga we focus on Japanese music! :D
Each week a letter of the alphabet will be given and your icon(s) must have something to do with that letter. A word in the text on the icon can start with the letter, the band could start with the letter, the musician's name could begin with the letter, etc. :)
1.) Icons must be made by you. No stealing from other people...It's not nice.
2.) Icons must be kept anonymous throughout the run of the contest (don’t post them elsewhere before voting is over). You may not submit an icon that you have used or posted elsewhere. (Open or "public" Photobucket accounts break this rule - Set your Photobucket accounts to "private".)
3.) All icons must meet livejournal standards - under 40kb and 100x100px in GIF, JPG, or PNG format.
4.) Please host your icon somewhere other than LJ that allows direct linking. Try Photobucket or TinyPic.
5.) Animation is allowed.
6.) You are allowed to submit 3 icons unless otherwise stated.
7.) To vote and/or participate you must be a member of this community and/or be watching the community.
8.) Have Fun. =3
All submissions should be posted as comments to the challenge post. All comments are screened, so only you and the original poster will see them.
Please submit your icons like this:
☆When submitting your icon(s) you may add extra information such as which fonts, textures, brushes, or the original image(s) that you used, if you want to. This is to help banner makers customize your banner a bit more. :) You do not have to do this if you do not want to. (Please NO hotlinking.)
Letters are announced on Friday and you will have until the next Friday (9pm EST) to get your submissions in. Saturday and Sunday are for voting and winners will be announced Monday.
Voting will take place as comments in the voting post. All members of the community are allowed to vote regardless of whether they submitted an icon. Votes are weighted, so make sure to vote in proper rank. You may not vote for your own icon.
