You have 20 days to make 20 icons using our given categories and themes. The subject will be of your choosing, it can be a character, a pairing, a TV show or even a movie. After the 20 days all submissions will be pit up for voting and winners will be picked.
What does 20in20 mean?
It simply means that you have 20 days to complete a set of 20 icons. The challenge is divided into 10 themes, 5 category and 5 artist choice icons. You have to complete all 20 for your entry to be valid.
What is fandoms20in20?
We are a 20in20 challenge that focuses on all types of fandoms. We not only accept well known shows/movies. But also other types of fandom, including games, manga and anime. You can also pick a character or pairing to represent the fandom.
Can anything count?
Yes, just remember to follow the rules when you make the. If your chosen subject contains a lot of graphic violence and/or sex don’t use them on your icons. We don’t want to have to use a mature warning for the community. You can use curse words or if you’re using a mature film(horror/action), then put a a warning on your entry.
Do we get more than 20 days?
I ask that all entries are completed in those 20 days, but if maybe some people need two or even three extra days, we may be able to extend the challenge. But if you haven’t even started your challenge entries the change that you will get extra time is very little. If you don’t think that you can complete the challenge just tell us and maybe wait for the following round.
How long to sign ups last?
Since we are new the sign ups will last until the last week(usually the final 10 days) before the challenge end. Sometimes they may even last the whole challenge, but if you sign-up 3 days before it ends is very unlikely that you may compete it. It would be easier if you wait for the following round.
How many people can share the same subject?
Up to 5 people may use the same challenge. If we have more than 20 people up for the round, I may allow a few extra. But is more likely that we pick your 2nd pick.
1. All icons most be your own, if we find out that you are posting someone’s else icons, you will be disqualified and banned from any upcoming rounds. Also don’t submit previous work, all of the submissions need to be original for the current challenge.
2. All icons need to fill LiveJournal’s standards, no bigger than 100x100, under 40kb and either of this file formats; .png, .gif, or .jpg
3. Works need to be kept on a low rating, we don’t really allow nudity and if any of your icons contains it your entry won’t be accepted. We have to post the icons here for voting and I won’t allow them. If there is nudity and you really need it, all major parts have to be hidden or censored. We don’t mind much about blood since so many of our fandom use them. Put try to keep them as mild as possible.
4. We allow you to claim any fandom that you want, but we have a small rule that only 50 people can use the same subject. If 10 people have picked Twilight, you have to pick something else. Yet we allow you to pick Bella/Edward or Kristen/Rob as a different subject, if there are less than 10 people using than particular fandom. This is simply because we want some variety and I’m sure that most of us have more than one fandom.
