Week #153 Challenges [Aug. 23rd, 2009|11:55 pm]
Classic Icontest

jordannamorgan
For something else a little different this week, our theme challenge is Young & Old. For this challenge, you must submit icons in pairs. A pair of icons must use the same classic film star: one showing them when they were young, the other showing them much older (at least 20-30 years). You could use images of Katharine Hepburn from Bringing Up Baby and The Lion in Winter, for example. You may also show child stars in childhood and adulthood, if you wish.
Our pre-1970s year limit is suspended for this challenge. You may use images from later years, as long as at least one icon in the pair is from the 1960s or earlier.
You may enter three pairs of icons, for a total of six.

Our star of the week is Charles Boyer. You may use these pictures, or choose your own.Collapse )

You may enter up to three pairs of icons in the theme challenge, and three icons in the star challenge. You do not have to enter both challenges. Please submit your icons in a reply to this post, in the following format:

[icon]
Icon URL
Details
(e.g. movie title/star name; whatever you want visible later)

Icons are subject to the community's general rules. Entries will be accepted until 10pm EST on Sunday night.

Some of the responses to our poll (please take a moment to answer it if you haven't yet!) have expressed interest in director challenges. So this week, our theme challenge is Frank Capra. You may use images from any of Frank Capra's films, or if you like, images of Capra himself.

Our star of the week is Loretta Young. You may use these pictures, or choose your own.Collapse )

You may enter up to three icons in each challenge. You do not have to enter both challenges. Please submit your icons in a reply to this post, in the following format:

Member Poll [Aug. 15th, 2009|09:22 pm]
Classic Icontest

jordannamorgan
As you've probably noticed, we've recently had a severe lack of icon entries (and even icon voting). I've seen the same problem lately at other icontests, so I'm inclined to think it's at least partly a normal seasonal lag. However, it's a good opportunity to poll you, the members, about several aspects of our schedule and challenges. Perhaps it will shed light on some changes we could make that will inspire more activity. :)

Please take a moment to answer this poll--and please, do post a comment to share any other opinions or suggestions you have!

Do you prefer weekly icon challenges, or two-week challenges?

I would prefer it if challenges were open for two weeks.
2(25.0%)
The current one-week challenge length works fine for me.
3(37.5%)
It doesn't matter to me.
3(37.5%)

Would you be more likely to enter icons if the award banners were uniquely made for each challenge (instead of being made from the same basic template)?

I would be more likely to enter.
2(25.0%)
I would not be more likely to enter.
6(75.0%)

Would you like to be able to enter more than three icons in a challenge?

I would like the limit to be four icons.
2(25.0%)
I would like the limit to be five icons.
1(12.5%)
I would like the limit to be six icons.
0(0.0%)
I'm satisfied with the three-icon limit.
5(62.5%)

Which of the following new theme challenge types, if any, would interest you? (Select as many as you like.)

Themed pairs or sets of icons (e.g. couples, seasons, young/old, etc.)

Well, only one person has submitted entries for our Color Gray and Spencer Tracy challenges, so I'm going to go ahead and extend this one too. You have another week to create icons for this challenge.

Week #151 Challenges [Aug. 2nd, 2009|10:56 pm]
Classic Icontest

jordannamorgan
This week we have a color challenge, and the color is Gray. You may use images of any classic movie or star. Icons should either prominently feature the color gray, or otherwise use some kind of gray-related text or concept: gray skies, shades of gray... gray hair? *g*
(I know it may be hard to draw the line between "gray" and just plain "black and white", so just use your own judgment; I'll be pretty lenient. And of course you can spell it "grey" if you prefer!)

Our star of the week is Spencer Tracy. You may use these pictures, or choose your own.Collapse )

You may enter up to three icons in each challenge. You do not have to enter both challenges. Please submit your icons in a reply to this post, in the following format:

[icon]
Icon URL
Details
(e.g. movie title/star name; whatever you want visible later)

Icons are subject to the community's general rules. Entries will be accepted until 10pm EST on Sunday night.
