Welcome to videogameawards! This is an icon awards community for fans of all console video games. This community is founded by adaneko and is now moderated by nyaabo and astrokittie.
This community was founded because I felt there were not enough icontests out there that encompassed all the games I liked. Too many were limited to RPGs or Square-Enix games. I hope that this community encourages people to make icons of other, non-FF video games (though FF icons are certainly welcome).
So what are you allowed to enter here? Any icon that's related to a video game. Any genre is welcome — action, RPG, fighting, puzzle... anything. Unfortunately, we will not accept icons from PC "games" that are visual novels and dating sims.
Members aren't all required to submit an icon to participate. Voting is just as important, so please join even it it's only to vote. You do not need posting access for this community. All members need to do is comment on posts.
All past themes, entries, winners, and banners are archived in the community memories.

A new theme will be posted every week on Sunday @ 10AM Central Standard Time, the same time as the weekly voting post. Icons may be submitted for the new theme between the time of posting until the next Sunday @ 10AM CST, which allows members one full week for icon making. Want to suggest a theme?
1. You must be a member to participate. It doesn't count if you're only watching the community. Members are allowed up to two submissions per theme (unless stated otherwise).

Voting for icons will open on each Sunday @ 10AM Central Standard Time and close on the following Tuesday @ 9PM CST.
1. You must be a member to participate. It doesn't count if you're only watching the community. Members are allowed to vote once per contest. Do not vote multiple times on different accounts. You will be banned.
The Special Category is picked randomly just before voting opens. This place is awarded to the icon that receives the most votes for the special category. The six categories are:
Most Creative: The icon that shows the most originality from the others through its cropping, blending, captioning, or typography, etc.
After winners are announced, there will always be an anonymous ranking to go along with the winners post so all the entrants can see how their icon fared.
As of 11/28/07, all winners that wish to recieve a banner will be sent to custom_banners, as the community has no permanent banner makers. Further instructions will be located in all results posts.
Notes: The old banner making schedule is located here
