GOOD ICON AWARDS

About Us Categories Examples & Misc.

Hello and welcome to goodicon_awards! This is an elite community where you may nominate and vote upon icons that trully deserve an award for their spectacular awesomeness. :D

Icons may be of any movie, tv show, play, actor/actress, or stock photo (basically anything that can be iconed. However, each of these fit in a different category, so make sure you nominate it in the correct category (however I, along with others, will be here to help you with the categorization of the icons).

The layout codes for goodicon_awards are by letsbebad. This community was inspired by a number of awards community including but not limited to neptuneawards, alias_awards, iconist_awards, anatomy_awards, and narnia_awards.

And now...the always dreaded...

Rules:
[1] Icons nominated must come from an elite community.

[2] No hotlinking. This is a given...it's pretty much a rule everywhere. So seriously, don't do it. It's rude and inconsiderate. So don't.

[3] Icons must be no bigger than 100x100 pixels.

[4] You may only nominate up to 5 icons per category.

[5] If you are nominating, you must nominate at least 3 icons, which may or may not be made by the same icon maker.

[6] You may only nominate a specific icon in one category, even though it may fit the requirements of many.

[7] As like in every other awards community I've been to, you can nominate your own icons but not vote for them.

[8] Please let the person who made the icon you nominated know that you nominated it.

[9] Please include the icon makers main journal (icon/graphic journal may be included) along with the icon.

[10] Please do not nominate any icon that contain material you wouldn't see on public access television.

[11] You may promote other communities here as long as you post it with a nomination.

[12] (even though it is last, it may be the most important) There will be no bashing in this community. Any rude behaviour will not be tolerated. You will be banned from the community upon your first "bashing incident". There will be no warnings.
