we are a graphics challenge community that has 12 rounds per year. each round is open the span of the corresponding
tropical zodiac period and is influenced by that zodiac in terms of challenge requirements.

we are a spin off of 20inspirations. some aspects of this community will be very similar, but others very different.

here is an example to explain further - on 23rd August there will be a challenge post called 'the Virgin'. Within that post
will be a handful of challenges, guidelines and inspirations that all revolve around concepts associated with Virgo
(i.e Mute [textless], innocence [character], bird [feather textures]). you may enter 'the Virgin' challenge round until 21st of September.
A new round (the Scales) will be posted the following day.

there will be twists and turns offered up in each zodiac's challenge. there will normally be a third graphics medium
for you to consider making as well as a 'Herculean Labour' in the form of a alternative ultra-challenge option


graphics types have different values, the standards being an icon is worth 1and a wallpaper is worth 4.
you may always enter any mix of icons and/or wallpapers as long as they meet a minimum value of 12 (like the zodiac, get it?).
you are encouraged to exceed the minimum entry requirements.

we do not have a sign-up period or a claims post.
you may enter at any point during the round and your entry may be any subject.
however your entry may only contain one fandom (tv-show/movie/actor/model etc)

you may enter as many times as you would like during the span of the challenge
however your entries must all be different fandoms (tv-show/movie/actor/model etc)

this means that if you choose to focus on Tyler/Caroline (the Vampire Diaries) for an entry, you could not use the Vampire Diaries
for a second entry, even if the subject focus was different.
however you could have an entry that focused on Tyler/Caroline and other aspects of the Vampire Diaries.

you could use The Avengers for one submission and Captain America for another as long as the images used pertained to the respective movies.

we realize there is room to wiggle in our definitions here but I think we can all exercise a bit of common sense here, and if in doubt ask

we'd love to see in-depth entries (25+) of fandoms you love or
dabble across a few minimum requirement entries in new fandoms to you!


please post 4 teaser icons in the following manner:

<*img src=""> <*img src="">
<*img src=""> <*img src="">

(this is a link) to <*lj comm="yourgraphicscomm">

you may either post 4 teaser icons OR 2 icons & a 100x200 wallpaper teaser OR 2 100x200 wallpaper teasers.
(i.e posted images must take up no more than 200 x 200)

your subject should be: Challenge ## | Entry Contents | Fandom
for example: Challenge 03 | 20 icons & 1 Wallpaper | Game of Thrones.

tag your entries with the following:
&username, #fandom, *roundtitle

Sorry to be slow/dumb, but I can't quite work out what to do about a poll. I have a set of wallpapers and icons to post - do I put the poll on my own journal with them, or do I need to post all the icons & wallpaper here under a cut and put the poll with those (in other words, have them all in two places)? Or something else?

As it's nearly closing time for the challenge (I'm squeezing in at the last moment because I had to do the negative space challenge), I'll probably just post without the poll this time, but I thought it'd be handy to know for the future.

On the front of the poll, we're re-working the voting so watch this space! (sorry what we originally had made no sense XD)
