Utena Choir

Shoujo Kakumei Utena Lyrical Icon Challenge

Posting Access:
Select Members , Moderated

Welcome to utena_choir, a lyrical icon challenge community modeled after the utena_chorus and utena_lyrical communitites which are, sadly, closed.

The format is simple: Each week you, the icon maker, will be given the lyrics to a song. Your challenge is to make a Shoujo Kakumei Utena icon using those lyrics. Then, over the weekend, members will vote on their favorite icons.

Any and all questions can be directed to the community creator and your head moderator, rampala_quistis

o1.] You may only enter two icons per challenge.
o2.] Icons must contain at least one line three words or more from that week's lyrics, unless otherwise specified.
o3.] Fanart may not be used for icons. You may used images from the TV series, the movie, the manga, the video game, and the musicial. (Tip: I suggest The Empty Movement Gallery for all your Utena image needs.)
o4.] New icons only. Please don't use something old that just so happens to fit into the current challenge.
o5.] Icons must fit Livejournal specifications (100x100, 40kb or less, etc.)
o6.] No cheating. That means no telling your friends to vote for you, no making new accounts to vote multiple times for your own icon. You can, however, vote for yourself, but only if you really think it's the best icon.
o7.] Do not distribute/use your icon elsewhere until the winners have been announced.
o8.] Do not use the icons that are used here unless if you get permission from the icon maker.

o1.] Icon makers have until 11:59pm EST on Friday night to submit their icons.
o2.] Voting will go up Saturday morning (as close to Midnight, EST as possible) and will last until Sunday night at 11:59pm EST.
o3.] The next challenge will also be posted Saturday morning, to give icon makers as much time to work on their icons as possible.
o4.] Winners will be announced Monday morning and banners will be distributed during the week.
o5.] Anyone can vote. (You need not be an icon maker or even a member of the community, though the latter is appreciated.)
o6.] 1st, 2nd and 3rd places will be given out along with a special category, changing on a weekly basis, and Mod's choice.
o7.] Voting is weighted. 1st place votes recieve 3 points, 2nd place votes recieve 2 points, and 3rd place votes recieve 1 point. The week's special catgeory is a tally vote and Mod's choice is, obviously, Mod's choice.
o8.] Please, if possible, do not vote for an icon more than once/in more than one category.

o1.] "A Night at the Roses" -- Winners
o2.] "Metal Heart" -- Not Yet Completed
