Welcome to rayearth_awards, an icon challenge community for icon makers (and enjoyers ^_^) of the anime and manga series Magic Knight Rayearth by CLAMP. This community was founded by soifon and is currently moderated and maintained by ephemerally and is based on the original Magic Knight Rayearth Icontest, mkr_icontest.

What is Magic Knight Rayearth? If you know of CLAMP, then you probably have heard of this series. For more information, feel free to read up on it at my Magic Knight Rayearth shrine, Shinjiru Kokoro.

What is an icon challenge? An icon challenge is usually a community that gives a theme and participants make icons according the to theme. There may not be a voting of icons (such as daily_icon and the community may simply be members fulfilling a quota of icons to complete the challenge. rayearth_awards is an icontest, a type of icon challenge. There will be weekly themes in which members will participate. A voting will commence at the close of the theme and winners announced. Winners will receive banners which they my put up at their journals and sites. You do not have to participate but we encourage everyone to try! It's a lot of fun!

1. One icon per contestant per challenge (unless otherwise stated).
2. You must be a member to participate. Join now!
3. If you submit an icon, it must be your own personal work.
NOTE: Do NOT use someone else's icons, follow tutorials too closely, or use bases that require credit (it's generally better to make your own).
4. Icons must feature at least one Magic Knight Rayearth character or scene. If the only character/scene in your icon is of a crossovered character in another CLAMP series, your icon will not be accepted.
5. Icons using fanart and doujinshi images will not be accepted. Official images only, please!
6. All icons must meet livejournal standards - under 40kb and 100x100px in GIF, JPG, or PNG format.
7. Icons must be remotely hosted on a site that allows direct linking (you can use a free Photobucket account).
8. Keep icons anonymous throughout the run of the contest (don’t post them elsewhere before voting is over). You may not submit an icon that you have used or posted elsewhere.
9. Mods are allowed to enter challenges.


V O T I N G


Voting occurs in response to the voting post via a poll or comments. You must be a member of the community to vote. All members of the community are allowed to vote regardless of whether they submitted an icon. Votes are weighted, so make sure to vote in proper rank. You may not vote for your own icon.

D I S Q U A L I F I C A T I O N S


A moderator will attempt to warn you if your icon (or vote) is submitted improperly or if you break any of the rules; however, the moderators reserve the right to disqualify your icon (or vote) without warning if it is improperly submitted or you break any of the rules.
