What is it?: Each week or so, there will be a nomination post or two for different categories. On that post, you will comment with three people you feel deserve to be called "the best" in that category. Later on, there will be an overall vote with the people who received the 5 most nominations. The people will then vote on those 5 people.
What are the categories?
Best icon maker - overall Best icon maker - using a "simple" style (clean, clear icons - will be clarified in nomination post) Best icon maker - using a more "complex" style (also will be clarified) Best icon maker to not post icons in more than two months Best icon maker - coloring Best icon maker - text Best icon maker - trendsetter Best icon maker - cropping
Best resource maker - overall Best resource maker - brushes Best resource maker - textures Best resource maker - stock images
Best Buffy/Angel icon maker Best Veronica Mars icons maker Best Harry Potter icon maker Best sci-fi icon maker (will be clarified) Best "not very popular fandom" icon maker (will be clarified) Best Alias icon maker Best Lost icon maker Best music-based icon maker
Most under-rated/under-appreciated (will be clarified) Most creative Funniest icons
and a few special categories:
Best larger graphic maker Best commenter to icon posts The "where are they now" award Best mod of icon communities Best icon community (not elite) Best icon community (elite) Best icon challenge (not elite) Best icon challenge (elite) Best LIMS challenge
Most will be made more clear as the nomination posts go up. Some categories may stay, and some may go away. More might be added
**special note to those running an icon community** If you do run an icon community, we may give out special awards for your comm. As an example, the mods of icon_crack may give an award to the person who has won the most challenges, or any sort of comm may give an award for most active member, or something like that. There will be a post about this later on.
