| guidelines
There is no minimum or maximum number of icons you can nominate. You can nominate just one or 20. However, to spread the love more, please do not nominate more than 2 icons per icon maker, including yourself. It is very much appreciated that you'd nominate also someone else's icons when nominating your own :)

Please, let the icon makers know that you have nominated their icon/s. This is not only polite, but gives them the opportunity to vote in the awards and to perhaps nominate some more icons for the round.

Do NOT in any circumstances hotlink the icons you nominate. Upload them to your own server or to a free image host (such as tinypic, photobucket or imageshack).

An icon that has been voted a winner in any of the categories, cannot be nominated again.

Post all icons you nominate behind the lj-cut, except up to three teaser icons. Please use the nominating template when nominating your icons.

nominating template: (copy and paste to your entry [html - not rich text]

When nominating remember to write down the username of the iconmaker, the category in which you are nominating the icon and naturally post the icon. All nominations missing any of these vital bits of information will be discarded.
