Holiday Icon Set Competition 2023


Banner by Chelle (shinebrighterxx)


Fan Forum Holiday Icon Set Competition
Get into the holiday spirit! Work together, and show us what your board can do!
Create holiday themed icon set on the topic of all your favorite tv shows, celebrities and movies to submit for the competition.



Hi everyone!

We are holding the annual Holiday Icon Set Competition this year and we're happy to announce that this board has signed up to participate.

For rules, information, a list of all of the boards that are participating, and a place to ask any questions, please visit this thread on the Info Center board.

Rules:
  1. All of the icons must be holiday themed and flow together as you are submitting a set of 3-5 icons. You are free to use any technique (brushes, textures etc...). For help and tutorials, the Fan Art board is a great place to find it.
  2. The icons you submit must be exactly 100x100 pixels in size and in JPEG or PNG format. No animated icons are allowed.
  3. Each of your icons in your icon set must be of the same topic and of a similar style.
  4. Final submissions should be a separate post in the thread marked with the words "to submit it for the competition" in red. This way, we will know that it is the final version of the art you would like to submit. It will be linked on the beginning post of the thread, updated frequently. If you do not see your art on that post a few days after you post it, please PM one of the GT Managers (Mel, Chelle, or Kate). The moderators of every board are responsible to add the arts to the OP by the deadline. Any art that hasn't been added in by 24 hours after the deadline won't be included in the polls.
  5. YYou may submit to as many boards as you wish, but it must be no more than 5 icons per board. You may most certainly make more and post it on the thread for people to see, however you may only submit 5 for the competition per board. There is no limit to how many boards you can submit an art for. You are also more than welcome to participate in both the holiday icon set competition and the holiday fan art competition.
COMPETITION DEADLINE IS DECEMBER 21ST AT 6 PM EST.

If you have any submissions for this board, please make sure that you follow all of the rules (listed above) and post your entries on this thread.

Lovely icons . Unfortunately it doesn't feel like they are meeting the criteria for an icon set so you may wish to take a look over the rules which can be found in this post. As you can see in there an icon set is a collection of 3-5 matching icons which are all made using the same style and designed to work together as one piece of art. You will also see two examples of icon sets and an example of what is not an icon set. If you need more examples or further information please let us know. Thank you

Please ensure that you are posting new & changed submissions in a new post, not editing previous posts.

It is not about who is in the icons, it is about if they feel like they flow together. Think along the lines of using pictures from the one photoshoot or episode; using the same cropping, colouring, text for each icon. Things like that. The challenge isn't to simply make five icons, but to make five cohesive icons which work together as one piece of art. For a show you might pick one episode which had a Christmas element & make icons from that episode, ensuring you make them all the same way & they appear to work & flow together. Or you might have five characters who dressed up as Santa at some point or one character who dressed up as Santa multiple times for example. So your theme there would be Dressing as Santa. Does that make sense?

For your current icons you have two icons which have circles, two icons which are square, & one icon which contains a rectangle. All appear to contain text but there isn't any consistency for the text. They are great icons, but they just don't appear to match or have anything in common with each other beyond the trio.
