- Challenge 1 will begin on December 1st.
- Most challenges will have a set of approximately 8-10 screencaps to choose from (see links below for those of you who may like to get a head start). Your icon should be made from one of the provided screencaps. The exception will be any technical challenges (ie. negative space, text etc).
- Each challenge will last one week.
- We'll have as many challenges as it takes to eliminate all by one icon maker.

- You may submit only one icon per challenge.
- Your icon must meet usual standards; 100x100, original work, etc.
- Please don't post your icon elsewhere until voting is done.
- No skips. If you don't enter a challenge, you'll be eliminated.
- Please vote! Please ask your friends to vote! Please do not ask your friends to vote for you.

If you'd like to provide screencaps for consideration in the challenges, please leave a comment with the category name, fandom name and a link to the cap. I will try to select a variety of caps from those submitted in each category. Remember, the higher-quality, the better.
Some of the later challenges could use some screencaps if you're still interested in volunteering some, although we may not get to those challenges depending on participation? IDK.

To sign up, simply participate in the first challenge and you're IN THE GAME! :D
