Icon & Header Contest v3.0  
Members and Lurkers!

They say third time's the charm, and we're really hoping that's true. Your mod team presents to you the

Icon & Header Contest v3.0


  1. Submit your icons / header image(s) by commenting on this post. All comments will be screened. You may submit as many icons / header images as you like.

  2. Icons have to fit LJ standards (100x100, less than 40kb); header images have to fit the new community layout (max. 800x320). Header images may be smaller than 800x320, not larger though.

  3. Any icons you submit do not have to be made specifically for this contest, but they should relate to this community and its theme (CM Fanon). | All header images you submit have to be made for this contest specifically. Only header images made specifically for cmfanon will be taken into consideration; all other images will be disqualified.

  4. Any header images you submit must include most if not all Criminal Minds characters. You can use several images and blend them together or use a group picture of the team, but we do not want a character-specific or ship-related header for this community. We are trying to reflect all of fandom. *

  5. You may submit text icons into the contest, but please make sure that the quote or text you use if related to this community's theme.

This competition will be open from today (Sunday, May 20) until Sunday, June 10, 11:59 PM CET. This gives you three weeks to enter your submissions to this post.

On June 11, one of the mods of cmfanon will create a voting post where everyone (members and non-members) can vote for their favourite icon and their favourite header image. Voting will be open for one week; the winners of the icon & header contest will be announced as soon as we have a definite result, after which the new header image will be added to the community's layout and the new default icon will be uploaded.

Please note that by submitting your icon(s) and here, you give your permission for cmfanon to include it/them in the community's userpics. If you do not wish to give such permission, but rather only let the community use your icon if it should win, please state so clearly in your submission.

However, only the winning header image will be used. Should cmfanon wish to use any of the other images for any other purpose, the artists will be contacted beforehand and asked for permission.

Creators of all icons and images used by cmfanon will be duly credited

This contest is open to anyone who wishes to participate, not only members of the community!
