Sorry this is late. My college is really small (800 people!) and so, when something crashes, like say, the internet, response time is pretty slow. I lost internet access and didn't get it back until sometime yesterday, but I was gone all afternoon and evening.

So. I only got three entries for Homer. I also didn't get any more battle morphs entries. So, I'm going to scrap both. And I'm going to start a new competition right now, to give you guys a little more time. Hopefully this one will inspire more of you. To enter, reply to this thread. All comments will be screened.

Contest #2: Tobias and Rachel
Make up to three icons that have something to do with the relationship between Tobias and Rachel. These icons can be all text, no text, quotes, animation, etc. You can use images from AniTV, or you can use images from other places, so long as the icon clearly has something to do with R/T. If people request them, I can find images, but I recommend Getty Images. All icons have to adhere to the livejournal specifications for icon size.

Have fun!

As just a reminder, voting is going to continue until tomorrow night. Anyone can vote! The voting thread is here.

Before I announce the new contest, I'd like to ask everyone to head over to the user profile section of this community to check out the rules. If you've already done so, do it again. After my first trial and error week, I've added a few new rules/procedures:

Some new procedures and rules. Please read me.Collapse )

One other notable change: Due to the responses I have received, there is only going to be one new contest posted per week from now on. This week is going to have two contests, but only because I don't want to discard the Battle Morphs entries. So, without further ado:

Contest #2: Battle Morphs
Original contest thread here. Once again, THIS CONTEST IS STILL OPEN. I only need one more submission until I will post this contest, but I'll take however many I y'all want to send me (only up to three per person, of course). If I don't have enough entries by the end of the week, this contest will be discontinued.

Contest #3: Homer
Based on a suggestion by _thelady_. He's practically a minor charater in his own right, he was one of the first morphs, and he's absolutely adorable. Therefore, this contest is devoted to him. Make an icon featuring Homer. You may use any picture of a dog that looks like him, but this picture (courtesy of AniTV and screencapped by _thelady_) is recommended.
Homer!Collapse )
Any and all text is allowed. Animation is allowed, so long as the icon still adheres to livejournal's standards. Up to three icons per person are allowed.

That's it. Have fun!
And keep voting in the current contest!

Before the voting, some friendly mod notes.

I'm really sorry that this is so late, guys. I've had a lot of technical difficulties today with coding. LJ was being weird for me. I think I've fixed it now, though.

So, we only had three entries for the battle morphs contest. My original intent was to only post them if I had enough for both, but we had TWELVE Jake entries, and I want to get this community started off right. So we're going to vote for Jake today.
I would like any opinions: why didn't you enter the Battle Morphs contest? Was it too boring? Were two contests too much? Anything else? I'd really like feedback on this. There's a possibility that we'll go to only one contest per week. There's a possibility that we'll scrap the Battle Morphs contest and have two new ones for next week. I don't know. Give me feedback, suggestions, etc, and I might make some changes. I'd also love suggestions for future contests. I can come up with contest ideas ad infinitum, but I've love to see what you guys want, too.

Everyone who entered was great!!

So, onto the voting. The rules:
1. Anyone can vote!
2. You may not vote for yourself
3. You may vote for up to three
4. Voting will end Monday at 11:59 pm (EST). Winning entries and the names of their makers will be announced on Tuesday. It's going a little later than normal to compensate for the lateness of the poll.

Poll under the cut. Don't call me PrinceCollapse )

Contests #1 and #2 [Mar. 28th, 2006|07:57 pm]

Edited because I linked to the images wrong. Sorry. Apparently there's a learning curve to this.

Edited again to add that you can enter both contests if you want

Welcome to the first Animorphs Icontest!

All entries will be due this Friday at 12 midnight EST (if we get technical, it's Friday 11:59 pm EST). I know that this doesn't give you icon-makers a full week, and if it's a problem and I get less than 4 entries per contest, I'll extend the deadline for a week. So, without further ado:

Contest #1: My Name is Jake
It's how the series started, and it's how we're going to start out, too: on Jake. Love him or hate it, Shawn Ashmore is an actor that most Animorph fans would associate with him, so for this contest use any of the 5 following pictures or a combination of them to make a Jake-centered icon. You can crop the pictures however. Text is optional, and it can say whatever you want, so long as it's focused on Jake. No animation. Submit up to three.
Cut for the picturesCollapse )

Contest #2: Battle Morphs
Let's start out with maximum firepower! Submit up to three icons that have something to do with the Animorphs' battle morphs: Siberian tiger, Grizzly bear, gorilla, wolf, Andalite, and Red-tailed hawk. If you want to get technical, I guess a lion would be okay, too. You can pick one, pick two, pick all of them--your choice. Text is optional, and can be whatever you want. Any and all bases are acceptable. Animation is fine, so long as it's under 40k. Submit up to three.

So get to work!! E-mail the location of your icons to KleenexCow@hotmail.com.
