Air Awards
Posting Access:
Select Members


air_awards is a series of icon contests held so that icon makers can compete and enjoy well the loved series Air. Members who do not wish to participate by submitting an icon may vote during one of the many weekly contests. You do not have to be an graphics designer to join.


1) The images used in the icons must be official art.
2) Icons submitted must be 100x100 pixels and 40kb or under. [Fitting Livejournal's icon standards.]
3) You must submit one icon.
4) All entries should include the image, the image's URL, and any comments/credits you would like to display.
5)Icons submitted must be fresh and new. Icons that have been used in the past or that have been "flashed" will not be permitted to enter. If any such icons are found the person will be immediately disqualified unless stated otherwise (I'm a pretty nice person and will understand if it was purely by accident).
6) All entries must be turned in by the deadline. Icons submitted after the deadline has already passed will be politely refused.

Sunday 10:00 p.m. (EST): Winners from previous contest are announced, and a new theme is posted.
Wednesday p.m. (EST): A reminder is posted and banners for the previous week's winner are displayed for viewing and pick up (banners will continue to remain posted and will not be removed because of bandwidth).
Friday 10:00 p.m. (EST): Current contest is ended and voting begins.
Sunday 11:00 p.m. (EST): [the process starts over]

ATTENTION: If I'm somehow off the schedule, in which case there's no results posted/no new theme posted, know that I'm probably busy, and that I'll get to it whenever I can. EST also stands for "Eastern Standard Time".


Voting is a large part of an icon community (just as much as actually submitting an icon). Therefore, it is extremely important that you make a true effort to vote during each contest. If you cannot, for what ever reason, that's fine (in other words, I won't ban you for not voting). However, voting is greatly appreciated and encouraged!
A person can place first, second, or third. There is also a special catagory award IF and only if, the contest holds more than 5 icons.
The same icon cannot be picked again. The only exception is the special category. With the special category you can choose one of the ones you've already chosen or pick a new one.
If you plan to vote, please try using a simple template, such as this: (You don't even have to bold it.)
Or take the easy way out, and do it like this:

[Looking for Help]

As one person, I can't make this community uber organized, so any help would be greatly appreciated! Just comment on the latest entry, explain why you think you'd be a good mod, and the times that you're usually on.
In addition, we also need banner makers for the community! If you're interested, comment on the latest entry, and I'll probably accept you. Banner makers will rotate on a weekly basis.
