Week 105 (overnight!) extension [

rebmastu
By popular request (xD) we're extending week 105's submission period overnight, so here's your last chance to get some last minute icons in! xD Voting will be posted tomorrow morning/early afternoon. To all of you who've entered this past week, THANK YOU! And hello to all you new faces. =3 We're thankful for you participation.

Also, someone asked this question of us earlier: "Can I use 'free choice' for one of my themes?" Sorry guys, the answer is a resounding, "Nope," due to the fact that this would completely negate the idea of having two different themes of one's own choice. And now you know!

Here's the link for the submission post. Time's a-wastin'!

Howdy howdy, guys 'n gals! Poppin' in to remind everyone that Friday's coming up pretty soon here, so be sure to enter an icon or two for our very last theme, m'kay? Remember, you can make as many icons as you want for any theme that you can think of! You may choose to do two seperate themes, should you wish.

Again, all: This is ccs_awards's FINAL WEEK! Let's make it an epic one, eh? Everybody enter! xD Even one icon is fine! Seriously though, invite your friends, tell everybody you can think of. The more the merrier!

We've already recieved a few submissions, but enough is never enough for this kind of theme! That said, here's your link to week 105's submission post, UNLIMITED ICON WORKS. See you there! XD

Week 104: LIAR!
{submission} {voting}

Hey, if you take hours into account, we're really not all that late =D
Well, actually, we are.
OH WELL!Collapse )

For those who wanted a little more clarification on the closing of the community:
rebmastu and I have been struggling with the idea for roughly the last 20+ weeks. The community is no longer any fun for us to run, and so much cheating and tactical voting goes on every week that it's not even worth posting new themes anymore, which is why, for this last week, we hope our members go legit. Come on guys, you can do it! It's going to be a fun theme, so let's all do it right! CLENCH THOSE TEETH!

And hey! Speaking of last themes, rebmastu's got Week 105: UNLIMITED ICON WORKS up already, but we don't have any icons! GASPS. You guys should enter, seriously. It'll be great. We can have chips, and soda, and play some music, you could even invite some friends.. scratch that. They'd probably vote for you. AHAHAHAHA. THAT'S CHEATING!

Week 105 theme [
    Saturday, November 24th, 2007 @ 2:37am
]

rebmastu
Well, this is it, guys. Our last hurrah. It may seem to be a somewhat familiar theme, but we hope y'all will be able to come up with something new and original. x3

Week 105 theme: UNLIMITED ICON WORKS

Fate/Stay Night references aside, for this theme your mission is clear!: You may choose ONE UNIFYING THEME for your submission, and make as many icons as you possibly can for that theme! This theme may include (but is not limited to) previous challenge weeks, image themes (make as many icons as you can for one image), episode themes (make as many icons as you can for one episode), character themes, pairing themes, etc. It's simple! XD

You may make two batches of icons (featuring two different themes, that is) if you so wish. Please note your theme in your submission batch. =3 You have no minimum or maximum icon limit for this week.

For example! I choose to use the Tomoyo image theme, and crank out as many icons of Tomoyo (Tomoyo alone, or tomoyo featured with another character, for instance) and be done with it. I also decide that Clow has absolutely no love in the fandom and I use him for a second theme. (I didn't have to do it, but I was in a productive mood, what can I say?) Understand? If you have any questions, feel free to ask. It's cool.

Rules:
  • All icons must be made NEW for this theme: I don't want to see any old archived icons! That's not cool!

  • Don't use other people's icons! YOU MUST USE ICONS YOU'VE MADE YOURSELF!

  • Don't show your icons to other people. That's just lame, d00dz.

  • Don't post your icons anywhere until the results for this week are posted!


  • Your icons are due Friday, November 30th at 9:00PM. (If you're working on a particularly huge batch and have run out of time, go ahead and let us know. We'll postpone the voting for you - we're cool like that.)

    In the meantime, week 104's voting post is already up! Go vote, willya?

    Please remember to vote! As for next week's theme, I'll be up to post it fairly soon. Remember, week 105 will be our closing week. We will be having no contests after next week.

    Howdy, howdy! Hope y'all had a happy thanksgiving. More importantly, I hope you've been working on your icons for this week's theme, LIAR! xD So far we have three icons entered, but that's definitely not enough to run a proper contest, eh? So, here's your submission post. SUBMIT!

    Also, a bit of an announcement: after week 105, ccs_awards will be closing. This is a decision melfra and I have made based on waning participation, voting, and lack of interest on basically any party's part. We will not be offering management to any other person at this time. However, we will continue to work on banners past the community's closing. That said, let's try to make these last two weeks great, okay? We at least want to go out with a bang!

    We're not lying this time, seriously. IT'S NOT ON TIME, BUT AT LEAST IT'S SUNDAY!
    Week 104 theme: LIAR!

    The exclamation mark goes in the theme title! Remember that! So I don't doubt some people have problems with the lack of new image material, and it's obvious that the source material would stagnate eventually, but the remedy to that is original content! So for this week, come up with the most blatant untruth you can think of for CCS! Syaoran is Sakura's sister! Ruby Moon really is into girls! And if you're not really into the crazy text thing, you can also do something like, say, a photoshopped pairing icon. In fact, have fun with photoshop this week, because the theme here is "off the wall". Just go nuts with it!

    All icons must be submitted in the following format:

    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v511/ccs_awards/community_icon.gif
    credit: n/a

    Rules and guidelines
    -No crossposting or sharing your icon before the contest is FULLY completed. Until that results post is up, we'd better not find your icon floating around your journal or anywhere else.
    -Try to respect individual artist or resource maker's guidelines. While it's not necessary that you credit every brush, texture, or gradient used, we do appreciate this information as it helps our banner people better match your style.

    I'd like to remind our voters (and submitters) that posting your icons anywhere during the duration of the theme (from submission period all the way up until results are posted) is very much prohibited. Therefor, if anyone should see any members in violation, your cooperation would be muchly appreciated in putting a stop to that, so please let us know. In the meantime, good luck to our contestants! Voting ends this sunday at around 6:00PM EST. On a different note, we are still looking for volunteers to help us with our banner backlog! The userinfo for this community is up-to-date, so you'll be able to find missing weeks there. If you see anything that catches your fancy, please, don't hesitate! Any help is appreciated. ^^

    If ever there was a record for tallying speed, I just broke it. What a downer. Even so, thanks to everyone who voted. If we had even half of the number of people who voted entering icons, this week wouldn't have had such a poor turnout. Speaking of which, because we had so few entries, only two icons are placing this week with no mod's choice.

    Well, let's do something new for a change. Lyrical theme, go!

    Week 103 lyrical theme: '24' by Maaya SakamotoCollapse )


    For this theme, you must use three or more consecutive words featured in this song. The lyrics of your choice must be LEGIBLE - tiny-text does not count!

    Please submit icons in the following format.


    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v511/ccs_awards/community_icon.gif
    Rules and guidelines

    * Up to two entries may be submitted for each theme.
    * No crossposting or sharing your icon before the results are posted.
    * Crediting of texture or other resources are extremely helpful to our banner makers!

    Icons will be due this Friday at around 9:00PM EST. Hope to see you there. =3 Also, voting for Week 102: Passion is already up, so it'd be dandy if you could take a moment to vote.

    So I was a bit of a dip this week with the reminder, and due to that we've gotten a grand total of one icon since the last post, week 102 will be extended until this Sunday at 9:00pm EST with the voting going on 'till Wednesday. The new theme will be posted at the usual time on Sunday, so there won't be a huge disruption with this, unlike other full week extensions. Here's the link to week 102's submission post.

    Arr, I'm pretty late with this one, but seeing as it's technically still Thursday, I'll make myself feel a little better by saying it's only a day late! Yes, that is what I'll do. So, everyone, here's your reminder for week 102: passion. Thus far, we've got three lovely (and loosely interpreted at that! I love you guys!) icons. Of course, if we leave it at this, we won't be able to do the theme this week, so let's see some more icons, yes! You have until Friday at 9:00pm EST to submit your icons to this post, so let's do it! Whoo!

    Week 102: Passion

    Maybe a little 'adult' for CCS (if you take it certain ways), but let's see how it goes! As always, we encourage members to be liberal with their interpretations of themes. Even if you ran into a song with the title of the theme, we'd accept it if you mentioned that. Themes are there to inspire rather than constrain, after all!

    Please submit icons in the following format.

    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v511/ccs_awards/community_icon.gif
    Rules and guidelines
    • Up to two entries may be submitted for each theme.
    • No crossposting or sharing your icon before the results are posted.
    • Crediting of texture or other resources are extremely helpful to our banner makers!

    Enties are due this Friday at 9:00pm EST. You can submit icons after voting is posted, but we certainly don't recommend it!
