1.Each week a new theme will be assigned, whether it's a specific saying, image, or just a word that you may interpret. You are required to submit an icon using that theme as a guideline. If you fail to submit your icon, you will be eliminated from the challenge after you use your skip.

2. You are given only one skip. I know that things will suddenly come up at the last minute so it would be useful to you to keep your skip only for emergencies. Otherwise, you must leave me a comment telling me you will not be here next week, and I will give you the theme in advance.

3. main focus of this community is the critiques. Each voting post, you will be asked to explain why you don't like an icon. I don't want short one-worded critiques. Please have them a little more descriptive. These are examples of ones I will NOT accept:

"I just don't like it."
"I dunno; I hate that icon style."

Explain WHY you don't like it, or explain why you don't like that icon style on that particular icon. Your vote will not be counted if you make a critique like those.

4. Each vote as a favorite awards the maker +3 points. Each vote as a least favorite gives the maker -1 point. The icons that have the least amount of points will be eliminated.

R U L E S

-All entries must be centered on Final Fantasy XII
-Entries should be relevant to the challenge
-You may not vote for your own icon or ask other to vote for your icons
-If you'd like to take an icon, ask via comment & credit the maker
-If you want to use an icon for your personal use, please ask the person that made the icon for permission first - not everyone wants their entries shared
-As with most icontests, icons will be hotlinked for the voting post. This is ok if you use Photobucket or Imageshack as an image host
-Good sites to upload images:
tinypic
photobucket
imageshack
-If there's anything you'd like to ask, don't hesitate to get in touch. Comments to Challenge posts will remain screened if you'd like privacy :)
- Submitted icons must be freshly made for the challenge
- Don't use ready-made bases unless it is a base challenge
- Don't show your icon anywhere or to anyone until the challenge is over
- All the icons must meet LJ requirments (less than 40KB, 100x100 or less, and must be .jpg, .gif or .png)
- Maximum of one entry per challenge (unless stated otherwise)
- Animation, text, brushes, blending etc are all welcome unless stated otherwise
- You must be a member to participate, you must also have signed up
- It helps it your entries url doesn't contain your username so I don't need to reupload it
All we need is your entry icon & its URL in a comment to the challenge post.
example:
URL: http://yourimagewashostedhere.png
