I love the still for this week's challenge - Gwendolen this time :) The angle is a bit quirky and...oh, I don't know. I just like it.

I'm turning out to be a lousy moderator--I forgot the mid-week reminder! I know the deadline was tomorrow, January 1st, but due to the fact that we have a mere 3 icons, I'm extending it to January 7th. :)

You can submit your icons in a comment to this post. All comments will be screened.

I'm so excited about our first contest, which will be starring none other than Daniel Deronda (Hugh Dancy) himself!

Contest 1: PictureCollapse )

You can make two icons, and you have until January 1st, 10pm EST to submit your entry(s), which should be posted in a comment to this post. All comments will be screened.

I think I've got it all, but as if I've forgotten something, please let me know as I'm rather new to hosting an icontest. ;)

Have fun!

Welcome to Deronda Stills! This icontest is for icons from the fabulous Masterpiece Theater movie Daniel Deronda. There don't seem to be many out there, and what better way to promote quality icons (and the movie itself *wink*) than an icontest!

Before I proceed any further, though, let me just give a big shout-out to the wonderful chiffonwingsHeather, without whom this community would never have gotton off the ground! *leads the applause*

If all goes well, our first challenge will begin in five days, on Tuesday, December 20th. I'm sure you've all read the rules in the community info, but here's a quick overview:

1) No animation allowed. Use only the image provided. You may use brushes, text, and non-animated effects to create your icon.
2) Do not reveal your icon to anyone until after the winners are posted.
3) You may NOT vote for yourself, nor get your friends to vote for you, NOR manipulate the results of the polls for your benefit.
4) Please be sure your entry fits LJ's standards. GIF, JPG, and PNG format. 40kb and 100x100 MAX.
5) No obscene language. (or the following: racist, sexually suggestive, slash, or innapropriate content.)
6) Only one entry per contest unless otherwise noted.
7) You must be a member of the community to participate.
8) You may use an artist's entry icon only with their permission and after the challenge.

(By the way, I'm your friendly moderator, Abby. =) I look foward to seeing all the gorgeous icons you all come up with!)
