general rules;

To play you must sign up (check the user info for current link). Once the first challenge entry post is closed for the current round you may no longer sign up (see schedule).

We suggest that you join and friend the community to keep up on the goings on. This is not required, merely suggested.

Please check the round schedule for posting dates and deadlines. Challenges go up on Monday, and close on Friday, with voting on Saturday and Sunday, followed by results and the next challenge on Monday.

Each challenge we will provide a high quality image, images, or a theme. Please read each challenge's rules carefully, as there may be specific requirements for any given round.

Generally, you may use any effects, stock images, blending, brushes, textures, etc. Animation is not allowed.

This is a Last Icon Maker Standing Challenge. We are voting off the worst icon(s) each week. When voting, use the form provided. You must give a reason for voting icons off and you also do need to give a reason for your favorite icon.

Votes are weighted, so make sure to vote in order. For examples:

Least favorite in order
45: bad coloring
17: the crop makes the subject appear deformed
22: muddy colors, and blurry image

05: gorgeous coloring, nice text

Icon #46 will get -5 points, icon #17 will get -3 points, and Icon #22 will get -1 point. Icon #5 will get +5 points. If your icon receives both least favorite votes and favorite votes, they will cancel each other out. The icon makers will the least amount of points in each challenge will be eliminated.

Remember: You cannot vote for yourself.

Eliminated contestants may still participate in the voting process until the end of the current round. They are welcome and encouraged to participate in the next round.
