Welcome to fellowship_hush, an icontest for textless icons featuring the cast of the Lord of the Rings movies, as themselves AND in their LOTR roles. Every Monday one of the moderators will put up a new challenge, featuring several different contests. These contest will include: an actor challenge, a cap challenge, and a hunt challenge... You can see our previous challenges for examples! If you're still lost, there are several important links in the sidebar. Feel free to contact a moderator with any questions, comments, or concerns!

[x] Icons must fit the Live Journal standards: No bigger than 100x100 px and 40 KB, in either JPG, GIF or PNG format.
[x] There are several different contests in each challenge. Please be sure to read the rules for each contest very carefully because they all differ. If you plan on entering more than one contest, please enter them all in ONE COMMENT, specifying which go to each contest. They're easier to keep track of that way!
[x] Post the icons in a comment to the challenge post, in both IMG SRC form and URL form. We recommend uploading your images at either Photobucket or Greatest Journal. If your icon doesn't show up, it won't be featured in the contest.
[x] TEXT AND ANIMATION ARE NOT ALLOWED! Tiny, illegible text does count as text and is therefore not allowed, not even as a background brush. NEW: To avoid any confusion, you may not even use a brush that LOOKS like text.
[X] NEW: You may only enter brand new, original icons made specifically for the challenges here. You may NOT use icons you've already made, or use bases/blanks from other people. Please do NOT follow a tutorial/copy someone else's work when entering a challenge here! You need to make your icons from scratch! And last, but not least, your icons submitted here may NOT be used in another icontest, or vice versa.
[X] NEW: Your icons may not contain any explicit content, like nudity or profanity, but abbrevations (ie: "OMG" & "WTF") are acceptable. Keep in mind that this community is for ALL AGES. Though your icons may not offend the majority of people here, any "offensive" material on display here violates LJ TOS and could result in this community being suspended.
[x] The contest will be anonymous, (ie: comments screened, entries uploaded to community account for polls) so DO NOT post your icons elsewhere, including your own journal, until after the results are posted.
[x] Do not vote for yourself! Do not ask others to vote for you! Doing this defeats the whole purpose of this challenge and will get you disqualified!
[x] Only community members are allowed to vote, but you don't have to be an icon maker to join the community! Feel free to join just to take part in the voting.
[x] If you snag anything, remember to ask the artist's permission and credit them in your keywords. The contest entries will be unscreened once voting is over so you may contact them. Please note that multiple thefts will lead to suspension or banning.
[x] If all the rules stated above are not followed, the icon(s) will be disqualified.
