is a weekly contest for icons with the movie Newsies as the subject. Anyone with a LiveJournal is welcome to post an entry and/or vote on the entries. If you have any questions, just post a comment on the last post in the community. All comments are automatically screened.
Suggestions for challenges are always appreciated! Sometimes it's hard to find a good song/picture/theme, so if you ever have an idea, you can post it as a comment to the last entry.
* All icon challenges have guidelines outlined in the post and all icons must adhere to those guidelines
* All icons must meet LiveJournal standards (> 40kb and 100 px X 100 px or less)
* Late icons will not be accepted.
* All icons must remain anonymous until the winners are announced. This means that you may not post your icon anywhere, including entering it in other icon contests. All icons will be uploaded to the same Photobucket account in order to keep anonymity. Additionally, icons with your name, username or anything that might give away who you are in the filename will be renamed.
* All icons must be entered by replying to the post where the challenge is. Your comment only needs to have the image itself posted. If you don't know how to do this copy the code below and paste into the comment:
* All voting is done through polls
* Votes are weighted, so voting for your most favorite to least favorite is important
* You must vote on all 3 questions and you may not vote more than once. It just won't work due to how LJ polls work.
* You may not vote for yourself.
* Late votes will not count.
* Do not vote for your friend's icon if you just know which one is theirs (either by them telling you or otherwise). Cheating is never cool and if I catch someone at they'll be banned from the community.
Is animation, tiny text or blends allowed?
Tiny text is always allowed, but for lyric challenges, at least some of the lyric should be readable. Animation and blends are allowed, but for cap challenges, you must use only the cap.
