About

Welcome to BSSM Awards! This is an icon contest community created just for the fans of Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon! Each week there will be a new theme presented that you must follow when entering an icon. At the end of the week, on Friday night, the icons will be posted and votes will begin. The winners will each recieve a banner, which they can show off or do whatever.

For those of you who just can't stand actually making icons: You can still enjoy the community by simply voting for your favorite icons each week!



Rules

1. All icons must be Sailor Moon related. Duh.

2. Entrants can only submit one icon per theme [unless otherwise noted].

3. Icons must be no larger then 100x100 pixels, and may NOT have a file size larger than 40kb. These are LiveJournal standards; if an entry exceeds the standards, it will be disqualified from competition.

4. No advertising of icons. This means that no icon intended to be entered in one of the weekly contests can be posted ANYWHERE until AFTER the results of the week's voting are posted. "ANYWHERE" includes, but is not limited to, personal journals [LJ or otherwise], personal userpics [LJ or otherwise], graphics journals [LJ or otherwise], free graphics sites, forum avatar usage, forum signature usage, or e-mail signature usage. VIOLATORS WILL HAVE THEIR ICON DISQUALIFIED FROM THAT WEEK'S CONTEST. BREAK THIS RULE THREE TIMES AND YOU'LL GET A TWO-MONTH BAN.

5. Do not steal another's icon and claim it as your own. VIOLATORS WILL BE IMMEDIATELY PERMABANNED. WE DON'T TOLERATE THIEVES.

6. Do not vote for yourself. Violators of this rule will be given two warnings, and will be banned from voting for a month upon the third offense.

7. Please, no criticism. We do not need any drama here. Violators of this rule-- those who start drama-- will receive two warnings; third offense earns a TWO-MONTH BAN.

8. All icons entered in any single week's theme must be fresh, made specifically for that week's contest and used NOWHERE ELSE. This includes other icontests with similar themes in the same week. VIOLATORS WILL HAVE THEIR ICON DISQUALIFIED FOR THAT WEEK AND RECEIVE A WARNING. THIRD OFFENSE EARNS A TWO-MONTH BAN.

9. If it is discovered that you have taken any icon entered in any theme in this community, no matter how far back the theme was, and you do not credit the maker, you will be warned once. We will tell you to give credit by a certain day/time, and if you do not comply, you will be banned. If you comply, but are caught doing the same thing again, you will be informed of your instant ban. This will be a personal mission on this community-- we will NOT tolerate icon theft. The members here at bssmawards work hard to create icons every week, and we won't let their intellectual property be taken from them.


Submitting

Now remember: you are only allowed to enter one icon per challenge! On Monday a mod will post a theme and you have until Friday night to get your icon in. Just leave a comment at the screened challenge post, but NOT anonymously, with the icon and the URL at which it can be found. Also, please list any brush, base, or texture credits.

Submission Times: Monday - Friday at 8:00 EST

Example of how to submit:

Brush Creds: n/a



Voting

Voting times may vary, but should generally last from about 10pm PST (1am EST) Friday until about 10pm PST (1am EST) Sunday.

Voting will start late Friday night and end late Sunday night. To vote, members will leave a comment listing their top three favorite icons, in order of 1st choice, 2nd choice, 3rd choice. All votes will be screened so the community-at-large will not know who is in the lead.
- Vote for the one you truly feel is the best. Just because it's your friend's icon does not mean you have to vote for it.
- Do not vote for yourself. Sorry. We don't do that here.
- Eat waffles! ( You can ignore that.. )



Winners

Winners for each theme will be announced Sunday night and banners will be made shortly afterward. The first-place icon will become the community's default icon for that week, until we have the winner for the next theme.
