Welcome to gate_ep20in20!

PhotobucketAbout the Community
The idea for this group came from celeb20in20 and 10chevrons. I thought this was a fun idea and mixed both ideas of an icontest and making icon sets or 100 icons in a month.

You will have 20 days to make 20 icons featuring an episode from one of the Stargate shows.

There will be 3 types of sets:
1. 10 default themes, which I will try to switch up each month.
2. 5 icon set following one Category (ie: color, each icon must be a different color.)
3. 5 icon set of Artist's Choice. This means you can make any icons you want.

Themes: The themes set will include 10 themes like you would normally see in a 100 icon challenge.
Category: All icons in this set have a singular theme.
Artists Choice: This is fairly self explanitory. You get to pick the 5 icons you place in the set.

Themes: These will be voted only in categories. (ie: if the themes are happy, angry, singing, etc. Then all participants happy icons will be in one voting set. All angry icons will be in one voting set, etc.)
Category: These will stay in sets and will be voted on as sets.
Artists Choice: These will also be voted in as sets.

In addition to voting for sets in Catergory and Artist's Choice, you will vote for 6 icons of your choice.

Community Rules:
•You will choose one episode from the Stargate franchise to make 20 icons with. Because of the ongoing Stargate Universe series I ask that you wait a full month before posting a claim for the episode. For instance if an episode airs on October 15, you cannot claim that for the November sign ups. You can however sign up for that episode for the December round.
•Only one icon maker can have an episode for that challenge.
•You must choose a different episode back to back, but you can do every other challenge if you are able to request them before someone else.
•You can only enter once per challenge, using one episode per challenge.
•Your icons need to be NEW and not made previously. No previous icons may be used.
•Icons CAN be posted before voting goes up.
•You will be given posting access to the group once you sign up for an episode.
•You can either post to the group or link us to your journal. Make sure that your post in your personal journal is PUBLIC so that everyone can see them to vote.
•When voting, please make sure you are not bias, even if you know who made what icon (since they are public before voting.)
•Your icons need to fit livejournal standard of: under 40kb, 100x100 and either .png, .gif, or .jpg file format.
•There is NO ANIMATION as this is a stills community, unless used as a theme.
•Please make sure that there are no questionable content. No nudity, etc. If you think that something may be questionable, just ask. :)
