Welcome to the DJPJ_Icontest! Your icons will be based on the hit TV series, Dawson's Creek. To narrow things down, you'll be making icons of the two main couples in the show. Dawson & Joey, and Pacey & Joey. They won't be about any other characters. We may ask you to pick out of a selection of pictures we provide. We might ask you for certain words on your icons. We don't put in these rules to be selfish, or rude. We are adding challenge into the icons, so this is suppose to be something fun! Always remember.....

THE SPLIT CHALLENGE: We recently recieved a post from _dc_lover_, (A joined member of this community) And suggested a theme in the future called the Split Challenge. The split challenge is when I come up with a challenge for each couple, so there will be 2 challenges in one week, but you only have to do one challenge, this is to give more variety to everyone if they want a different challenge. So basically, if we have a split challenge that week, you will have a choice between the Pacey/Joey challenge I make, or the Dawson/Joey challenge I make. YES YOU MAY participate in both challenges, but you are limited up to 2 icons. So you can only do one icon for each challenge in a split challenge. Voting will take place the exact same, there will be no separate voting, we may think of that a little bit later in the challenge.

THE ADDING CHALLENGE: This challenge won't happen so often, it will be rare. This a challenge where you have the chance to submit 3 icons to have a better chance of winning. Its ok if you don't use the opportunity to submit 3, its optional, it just betters your chances of winning.

I will list more challenges when I think of more, I really want this to be a successful icontest! And, I want lots of good to come out of winning the icontest, which is why I'm making these, I want people to get more than just a pretty banner.


Here are screen captures of the 3 main characters you'll be making icons of! These resources are NOT required, these are provided for you incase you don't know any good resources.
