How it works... At the beginning of the month, signups will be posted for people to enter in with a claim relating to Metalocalypse. When signups close, Rules and Themes will be posted. Each round has 10 individual themes to make an icon out of each, 5 icons will be made for a single category, and another 5 will be made without any restrictions other then being related to Metalocalypse and your chosen claim. You will have 20 days to post your 20 icon entry, and at the end there will be voting to decide the best icons of each Theme, Category, and Artist's Choice. Once winners are decided, they will recieve banners for their efforts. There will also be participation banners. Then the cycle starts up again.
Breakdown... Themes: (10 icons) Ten different themes will be chosen, one icon must be made for each.
Category Set: (5 icons) The set category consists of 5 icons which all have something in common.
Artist's Choice: (5 icons) You have 5 icons where you can do what your black heart desires. ____________________________________________
Voting will be in 3-4 posts depending on the amount of entries submitted. The first 1-2 posts will be dedicated to Theme Icons. The third will be dedicated to Category Icons. Lastly, the final post will be dedicated to Artist's Choice Icons.

General Rules » You may choose a character, character group, general theme, episode, music video, etc related to Metalocalypse ONLY to make 20 icons with. » The same claim cannot be selected more than once. Unless otherwise stated in the rules of that current round. » You can't use the same claim twice in a row but every 3rd challenge is fine. » You can enter every month if you choose to. » All icons must be made specifically for this community, each round you decide to participate in. No prior work can be submitted. » All Icons must be posted on or before 11:59pm your time the day they are due. Unless an extention is given. » You must use 3 icons as preview in your entry post, and your entry must be posted on your person journal. No banner may be used as a preview. » ALL ICON POSTS MUST BE PUBLIC. We don't want to have to join/friend you in order to see your icons to post voting. » Please, if you participate try to check out the other participants entries. (another reason why there's an unlocked rule.) You want people to check out yours and vice versa, it's fair game. » Because they can be shown before voting. Please vote without bias!! Nothing else matters besides the quality of their icons. » They must fit the livejournal standard. (under 40kb, 100x100px and either .png, .gif or .jpg file format) » This is a stills community. NO ANIMATED ICONS, unless otherwise stated for that particular round. » Because of the nature of the show, inappropriate language and graphic images will most likely show up in icons.
