So, I talked about it and we'll be having our first ever contest!!

It's pretty simple! You're just making an icon. BUT! Here's the catch, we're going to be supplying you with pictures for you to icon! So it is up to you to choose the picture.

But of course, there are rules and they're quite simple.

1. Do not steal someone's and edit it.
2. Send in 3 icons. They could all be from 1 picture or more than 1. Up to you. If you have a variation of an icon you sent in you may add that in as well. An example of a variation is provided below. Basically, 1 icon = 1 variation therefore 3 icons = 3 variations, 3 icons + 3 variations = 6 icons you can send as a MAX.

3. Do not ask someone to make it FOR YOU.
4. DO NOT LOOK FOR A "BETTER VERSION" of the image. This is hard to catch someone do but that's not fair to everyone else.
5. Everything is going to be in Pacific Time! Because I live in that time zone! So when I got a time set for the contest, it'll end on midnight.
6. Also please post if it is safe for people to use your icons. I know that there will be a whole bunch of people who will take a look around and snatch stuff from you guys so if you don't want it to be "stolen" from you then you might either want to add some credit to it or say it on the post! (If you want to put credit on it, feel free to ask a mod if they're willing to put a watermark in it or something)
7. Don't post for your "friend" either! It's something you and only you should do if you want to win!

BIG FAT EDIT: Post Etiquette
1. Try not to hold conversations on here. If you would like to talk with a fellow contestant, do so elsewhere.
2. Please try not to say "______ is better than me." "I suck." "Oh everyone else's look nicer than mines." "Mines look the best." "EW that person's look weird." Nothing of the sort. It is alright to say, "Oh I'm not that great but I tried." Something along those lines.
3. It is alright to ask questions here.
4. And you should know other etiquette stuff.

So here's what we're looking for: Artistic Ability/Creativity

Meaning, you don't have to make some super fancy icon with text and nice textures and filters and all that other cool stuff. You can simply just crop it and maybe sharpen it or make it light/dark. I don't know, up to you! The goal for this is so that everyone can do it! You don't need an editing program or anything.

The sizes for them can range to 100 x 100 px to 200 x 200 px. I never seen HUGE icons before. I have seen rectangular ones though make sure that it doesn't exceed 200 px. If it's a little like, 201 or 203 or smaller like 99 or something then that's ok!

PRIZES!!!
So, whoever wins TOP PRIZE will get a free request and/or freebie on us and a chance to get their icon featured on our group! You can have some AWESOME bragging rights!

Those who get an honorable mention will only get a free freebie on us!

If you tried, we might throw in a small something for you!

What are you doing reading this? The contest is simple, fun, and easy! You don't even have to know how to edit! Why not give it a try?

I would ask for input if I'm stuck. I will judge all of them. xD If a lot of people enter... :/

Which I highly doubt! So IDK, we might want to inform others somehow. And I got some theme stuff up! For the next couple of months!! So.. Uhh... I guess I'll notify everyone! About that! Now before if gets out of hand, YOU MAY NOW START MAKING SOME ICONS.
