Welcome to the icontest community for our very own Hero of Canton, Jayne Cobb, from the television series "Firefly" and the feature film Serenity. The character of Jayne Cobb was played by the delightful Adam Baldwin.

We try to put up a challenge every other week and welcome anyone wishing to participate or vote.

Your friendly neighborhood mods are cheshire_monkey, xx_squish_xx and nomdeploom.

We have an e-mail if you'd like to contact the mods - jaynestills[at]gmail[dot]com
  1. Your submissions cannot be animated in any way.
  2. Your submissions must remain anonymous. This means you cannot use your icon or post it anywhere for sharing until the voting period has completed.
  3. Icons submitted for the challenges must be an original design. Only newly created icons are eligible.
  4. No telling your friends to vote for you. It breaks rule #2 and it's not fair to the people who follow the rules.
  5. All entries and votes must be completed within the time limit given.
  6. Your submission must fit LJ's size limits of 100 X 100, less than 40kbs, and in the format of .gif, .jpg, or .png
  7. If using the same screencap for multiple icon entries, each icon must have enough variation (i.e. color, textures, cropping) so the icons do not appear to be created by the same person.
  1. At the beginning of each contest, there will be an entry with that contest's screencap or theme (or both). All submissions must be made as comments to the challenge entry. Also, not everyone will have posting access to create posts but everyone can reply as comments.
  2. All entries will be screened.
  3. You must have a host that allows hotlinking for your icons you enter. A good one is Photobucket. A lot of icon makers already use it and free accounts are available. When posting, first post the image and then the URL underneath it. Please see LJ FAQs if you don't know how to insert an image in your comment.

  4. Each post will have a deadline (date and time). If there are not enough entries, deadlines can be extended (but only in extreme cases).
  1. You don't have to be a member of the community to vote.
  2. No Voting for yourself, or on false pretenses (Its unfair to other entrants and can get you disqualified).
  3. Anonymous votes will not be counted or accepted.
  4. You must vote to be qualified to win. If you know you will be out town that weekend, let us know and we won't disqualify you for not voting. If the mod doing the voting doesn't know and your vote is not in, you simply won't win if you should have.
  5. Votes will be screened.
  6. Three votes, in order of preference, are permitted unless otherwise stated. (You must vote for three, no more, no less, or they won't be counted.)

There will be First, Second and Third place winners, as well as a Mod's Choice and Banner Maker's Choice.

Using Icons Entered: You must wait until the contest featuring the icon you wish to use is over and the winners have been announced. The mod posting the "voting" for each challenge will ask that you include the number of icon you would like to use and, when winners are posted, all icon makers with requests will be asked for permission to use their icon.
