Welcome to food_abc, an icon contest for any and all types of food. (Including drinks and candy. :))
This community is an alphabet icon contest, meaning that instead of themes each week a letter of the alphabet is given and you are expected to fit your icon(s) to that letter.
This community gives out rewards/prizes (through LiveJournal) to winners!
Rewards/Prizes include: gift certificates, virtual gifts, paid account time or add-ons.
1.) Icons must be made by you. No stealing from other people. That is rude and could get you banned from this community.
2.) Icons must be kept anonymous throughout the run of the contest (don’t post them elsewhere before voting is over).
You may not submit an icon that you have used or posted elsewhere. (Open or "public" Photobucket accounts break this rule - Set your Photobucket accounts to "private".)
3.) All icons must meet livejournal standards - under 40kb and 100x100px in GIF, JPG, or PNG format.
4.) Please host your icon somewhere other than LJ that allows direct linking. Try Photobucket or TinyPic.
5.) Animation is allowed.
6.) You are allowed to submit four (4) icons unless otherwise stated.
7.) You must be a member or be watching this community to participate in any way. If you are not a member or watching the community you cannot vote OR submit icons.
All submissions should be posted as comments to the challenge post. All comments are screened, so only you and the original poster will see them.
The icons you submit must feature a food, candy or drink. You can have other objects or people on your icon, as well. As long as food is still the main focus, you are good. :)
You may submit up to four (4) icons for each challenge.
Please submit your icons like this:
Challenges will run for two weeks. New themes will be posted on Saturdays or Sundays. Voting will be posted Saturdays or Sundays with winners announced on Monday or Tuesday.
Voting will take place as comments in the voting post. All members of the community are allowed to vote regardless of whether they submitted an icon. Votes are weighted, so make sure to vote in proper rank.
You may not vote for your own icon.
