Jennifer Connelly & Paul Bettany Icon Challenge
Posting Access:
Select Members
Welcome to jenniferpaul_ic, an icon contest community dedicated to the very talented actors and devoted RL couple, Jennifer Connelly & Paul Bettany. You may know Jennifer from movies like "Labyrinth", "Inventing The Abbotts", "Requiem For A Dream", "Hulk", "House Of Sand And Fog", "Little Children", "Blood Diamond", "The Day The Earth Stood Still" and, most recently, "He's Just Not That Into You"; You may have seen Paul in movies like "Gangster No.1", "A Knight's Tale", "Master And Commander: The Far Side Of The World", "Wimbledon", "Firewall", "The Da Vinci Code", "Inkheart" and "The Secret Life Of Bees"; You may have seen both together in "A Beautiful Mind". (And if you haven't: Go and watch it! *lol*)

This is a bi-weekly challenge community. That means, once a challenge is issued, you will have 14 days to make your icons until the voting period will start and a new challenge will be posted.

The participants' task is to design and create icons out of pictures of Jennifer and Paul (on their own or together) which will be posted to the community at the beginning of each challenge. Featured pictures may be from photoshoots, screencaps or promo pics from their movies, magazine scans, or candids from the red carpet and other official events. I won't ever provide any pictures that violate Jennifer's and Paul's privacy and invade their family life (e.g. paparazzi shots).

This community's founder & maintainer is nida_yubari.

1. You must be a member of the community to enter an icon.
2. You can only use the pictures provided in the challenge post. Add (for example) text, brushes, light effects, animation, textures, and so on to create your unique icons, but don't use additional pictures of Jennifer and/or Paul which weren't provided in the post. (Unless there are different guidelines for an individual challenge.)
3. Your icons need to fit LJ's size standards (100x100px, 40kb, or smaller)
4. Your icons must remain anonymous. This means you can not use your competition icons or post them anywhere (your homepage, your LJ, etc.) until the voting period has ended.
5. To enter your icon(s), put it/them in a comment to the challenge post, like this:

1. You don't have to be a member of the community to vote.
2. Don't vote for your own icon, and don't tell your friends to vote for it, either. Let's keep this a fair contest.
3. When voting, please pick as many icons as stated in the respective voting post. (Usually up to three.)

Entry deadline for running challenges: Saturdays.
New challenges will be issued: Sundays.
Voting periods: Sundays to Tuesdays.
Winner announcements: Wednesdays.
(All this is bi-weekly.)

- 1st place (most votes)
- 2nd place (2nd most votes)
- 3rd place (3rd most votes)
- Mod's Choice

Each icon can win only one of the aforementioned awards, so the winner icons of first, second and third place automatically won't be up for Mod's Choice. If there aren't enough entries to cover all awards, I take the liberty to give out only as many awards as I see fit.

If there is a large enough amount of icons in a particular challenge, there will be additional awards, such as Best Cropping, Best Colouring, Most Creative. All icons will have the chance to win the additional awards - Even the ones that won one of the regular awards.

All winners will receive award banners.
