.Welcome!
Hello and welcome to the_iconawards! This community is simmilar to many of the other monthly icon award communities, except that here, you nominate your OWN icons for various different icon-related awards. Once nominations are complete, voting will go up and the winners will get a banner for each award won to display on their journal. Simply put this community is about showing off your own work! Whether you've been making icons for years or are a beginner feel free to enter and have fun!

Banner makers: peculiargroove & shalowater


.Rules and Guidelines
Nominations:
Each month the community will be open for nominations. You can nominate up to 2 icons (made by you) in each category. .
The icons you submit can be as old or as recent as you like as long as they are made by you. Just because you made an icon months ago doesn't mean it shouldn't be celebrated, right?
If you win in any category you CANNOT nominate that icon again.
Nominations will be open for 20 days so plenty of time to decide what icons you want to nominate.
When nominating your icons please state WHERE you post your icons so your link can be added to the hall of fame if you win.
You can nominate animated icons in the BEST ANIMATED ICON category and ICON MAKER'S CHOICE category ONLY.
You DO NOT need to nominate in every category - it's up to you! However, nominations to the ICON MAKER'S CHOICE category are MANDATORY.
To nominate your icons, reply to the nominations post and state clearly which category you are nominating each icon for and obviously provide the icon and it's URL. I will provide a form you can fill out to make this easier.
Icons can be of ANYTHING be it fandom or stock or whatever unless specifically stated in a category.
Bad Language in icons is allowed but not nudity (or at least nothing too rude!) If you aren't sure, feel free to ask!
Voting:
When nominations are closed voting will commence. I will post a poll for each award category.
Voting will be open for 5-7 Days depending on the votes still needed.
If we have a tie-break situation, a seperate tie-breaker voting post will be put up.
You MUST NOT vote for yourself - i'll be checking!
As nominated icons can be old or more recent you may know whom certain icons were made by during voting. Please vote without bias and do not try and get other people to vote for you. I want it to be fair and it'll be worth it in the end because if you win you'll know it's because people judged the icon on its own merits.
