Welcome to dg_stills! This is a fortnightly icontest community for non-animated Diego Luna and Gael García Bernal icons. I'm your mod, vanilla_pixie. Contests will feature the stunning actors, Diego Luna and Gael García Bernal (if you hadn't already guessed!).
Big thanks to quebelly for creating the whole stillness thing!
This contest is initially fortnightly, to guage participation. If we get lots we could go weekly. :O)
Each contest you will be given one picture of Diego, and one of Gael. Occasionally you may get a joint picture.
Rules [*] No icons can be animated - this is a stills community after all! [*] Submissions are to remain anonymous. Do not use your icon or post it until the banners have been awarded. [*] Icons must be newly created - no using icons that were made previously! [*] No telling your friends to vote for you. It's just rude and totally not cool. [*] Do not vote for yourself. I will check. ;) [*] Icons must be usable on LJ - 100x100 pixel size and 40kb file size [*] Please don't take any of the contest icons without the creator's permission. If you'd like to know the creator after a contest has ended please ask. [*] Only 2 icons for each challenge (one for each picture) unless it's stated otherwise. [*] If you submit an icon, you must vote, but obviously not for your own! ;P [*] There may be challenge specific rules posted when the challenge is posted
Submissions [*] Join the community to participate! If you're not a member, you can't win! [*] Make sure to upload your icons to a place that allows direct linking. Photobucket is a good place to check out. [*] Post your entry to the challenge post in the comments. All comments will be screened so only you and I will see your entry. [*] When responding with your submission, please include the img src as shown below:
Timelines [*] New challenges will be posted on Friday. [*] Deadline for icons will be midnight GMT/BST (7pm EST) on the following Thursday. [*] The icons will be up to vote on Friday mornings.

Voting&Results [*] The number of icons to be voted on will vary with each challenge. Watch the challenges for more info.
