Hello and welcome to rumic_icontest, a livejournal icon award community for fans of the work of Takahashi Rumiko, the 'princess of manga,' who love to make icons/and or appreciate those who do make them.

Every week a theme will be set forward for members to make submit icons relating to. Members will vote via signed in screen comments, and at the end of the voting awards will be given for First-Third place as well as moderator's choice assuming there are at least eight entries.


Banner Makers:
Let us know if you're interested in being a banner maker!

So what's allowed here?

Anything by the prolific Takahashi Rumiko! Both the original manga as well as the anime adaptations of her work are accepted.

A List of major titles:
*-Urusei Yatsura
*-Maison Ikkoku
*-Mermaid Saga
*-Ranma 1/2 (Nibun no Ichi)
*-One Pound Gospel
*-InuYasha- (Sengoku o Togi Zoushi)
*-As well as any of the Rumic Theater/Rumic World short stories
*-Also acceptable is Moeyo Ken, which she did character designs for.

Links lead to the eternally awesome Rumic World. If you're unfamiliar with any of the above works and would like to find out more, that's the place to go. You do not have to be familiar with all or even most of the titles Takahashi has published to be welcome here. This is an icontest for all her fans to celebrate any of her works.

The Rules:

1. Members must submit their icons by 9pm (central) on Friday Night. Voting will start then and conclude on Sunday Night at Nine P.M.
2. Icons must be new! Please no older icons, and we'd prefer if you made them especially for the theme. Do not post them up before the contest is over! If you do so I will have to disqualify the entrant.
3. This is a bias free zone- so please vote honestly and sincerely. No voting for your own icon. Also, please not advertise your submission or get a group of friends to vote for you- let's be fair here.
4. Art must be official manga or anime images from any of Takashi's work. Fanart is not allowed. However, if you wish to use doujinshi scans you may. The circle must be credited though.
5. No character bashing or potshots at any character/pairing. Even if you're doing it in humor- if you're unsure of something, run it by me first.
6. Proper credit must be given in the keywords if you wish to take one of the icons submitted here for personal use. Also, make sure you ask the icon maker directly for permission.
7. Icons need to fit the given theme. Stipulations will be given in each week's submission post.
8. Icons must fit livejournal criteria- 100x100 pixels or less and no more than 40 kb. Animation is fine.
9. Three icons per member per week for the time being. Themes will include words, lyrics, concepts (such as 'textless'), series specific, as well as provided bases and pictures.
10. Have fun and may the best icons win!

...And How to Vote:

Voting is done screened comment style, by replying to the post with the entrants (logged in).

Banners will be awarded to all three places weekly, and the winning icon will be set as the community default.

If you have any questions or suggestions please let the moderators (haro and abarero) know. I want this community to be able to please everyone involved as well as being an enjoyable experience- so if you have anything to say... speak up!
