Intro: Welcome to ioan_stillness, a stillness icon challenge community for fans of the wonderfully talented Welsh actor, Ioan Gruffudd - pronounced Yo-wahn Griffith (Hornblower, King Arthur, Fantastic Four).
The Contest: + Every Sunday, we will post either pictures or a theme on the community to be used as the week's challenge. If you'd like to donate pictures of bases to be used for future contests, please leave them in a comment here. + Each maker can only enter three icons (unless otherwise stated).
The Rules: + Being a stillness community means no animation. Ever. Fullstop. + The icon must be Livejournal standards: no bigger than 100x100, 40 KB, in either JPG, GIF or PNG format. + The contest will be anonymous, so please do not post your icons elsewhere, including your own journal until the contest is over. + Only use the pictures provided, no adding other pictures (unless otherwise stated). + Please don't take any of the contest icons without the creator's permission. If you'd like to use one, leave a comment in the voting post and we will alert the maker. + If all the rules stated above are not followed, the icon will be disqualified.
Entering the Contest: + You must be a member of the community to enter. + 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 such as Photobucket. If your icon doesn't show up, it won't be featured in the contest. - Post your icons like this:
Timeline: Everything is posted on Sunday: + The results for the previous challenge; + The voting for the current challenge; + The picture(s) or theme for the next challenge.
The deadline for each challenge will be informed in the challenge post.
Voting and Results: + The number of icons you can choose will be informed in the voting post; choose well! + Anyone can vote - you don't have to be a member of the community... But please don't ask people to come and vote for you; that spoils the fun. + Don't vote for your own icons. You'll be disqualified. + We will only name three winners for challenge - if there are two icons tied in first or second place, there won't be a third place for that challenge; if there's a tie in first place with more than three icons, the voting will be extended; if there's a tie in third place, or more than two icons tied in second place, the choice will be made by the moderators. + Usually, there won't be a Mod's Choice - but if there's one we feel should receive honorary mention, then Mod's Choice will go to that icon. + Winners will receive banners made by our banner-maker, the always talented hhhatholder.
