Welcome to DEPPcon livejournal's one and only Johnny Depp Icon Contest Community!
This community was created to be a home and playground for all those Johnny Depp lovers who also share an obsession with making icons about him.
This community is loosely based on the awesome community called bstg_icontest. It was not made to be a copy, but to offer a place for creators of a single genre of icons to compete against each other in the spirit of Johnny Love!
Note: I made the current layout to work in 1024x768 resolution. You can still view it in other resolutions, it just won't look nice. I apologize, but my skills with free account layouts are lacking.
All icon entries must be submitted by the deadline.
No advertising your entry to your friends in your journal.
All icons are to remain anonymous until voting ends. Don't tell anyone which one is yours.
Do not vote for your own icon. That would be cheating.
All submissions must be usable LJ icons (no larger than 100x100 and 40k)
You are responsible for uploading your icon to a host that will allow everyone to view it. If someone can't see it, they can't vote for it.
You can only submit your icon by commenting on the 'theme' post.
Moderators are allowed to enter icons as well. Since everything is done anonymously, they will not have any advantages over other members.
You may not submit 'bases' as icons in the contests. I expect you to spend an ample amount of time on the pieces you submit.
Do not steal anyone's icons. If you see one that you like, comment on that entry and ask permission to use it. Then, wait until the person who made it gives you permission to use it. Failure to do so will result in you being banned from the community and all your banners will be taken away.
Warning The last rule is enforced in a 'take no prisioners' manner. If I find that you are using an icon that I know was not created by you, you will be banned. No questions asked, no excuses accepted. It takes about 2 seconds to credit someone for something that they surely spent a lot of time working on. Thank you.

Personally, I don't think there is a better prize than a cool little banner that says your icon won an award. Eh? So, whoever wins will get a cute banner that says you won first place at DEPPcon. And in the future, if the community gets bigger, there may be second and third prize banners as well.
When you join it says you need to contact a moderator to get posting access. You do not need posting access so don't worry about it. This community, as I said before, is not for chatting. The only person who will post in this community is me, Liz. The only posts I will be making are: important notices, theme announcements, reminders, and prize banners.
