This will be the last challenge of this year, as my own timetable is filling up crazily as Christmas nears, and that's probably true for many of you, too.

It's another 'find your own pics' challenge, this time on a theme of...

Penguins! )
I'm... not actually quite sure when I will post voting. Probably on Sunday 11th December, so you have loads of time to hunt down some penguin pics and have fun with them.

Meanwhile you still have until tomorrow morning to enter Challenge 122.

Sorry this is late—I really wasn't sure if it was worth putting one up, but am encouraged to do so.

Halloween ) In order to allow you to use them for Halloween if you want to, this week I will close entries and post voting on Sunday 23rd October. Voting will close on the following Friday morning.

Meanwhile, don't forget to vote on Challenge #120.

The subject of this challenge is the humble bicycle. You may obtain your bicycle images from wherever you like—I'm including three under the cut to get you started—and this week, you may enter up to FOUR icons.

Comment to this post with your icon(s) and their url(s). Please don't use these icons before the voting is completed. All submissions should, of course, fit the 100 x 100, 40K guidelines for LJ/DW icons. And don't forget that if you are the winner, you'll need to post a tutorial on how you created the icon, so keep notes!

I will close entries and post the voting next Sunday (14th August). Please consider that Saturday 13th, midnight your time, is the deadline for entries (though you can get away with later as long as your comment is here when I get to my computer on Sunday).

Three huge bicycle images )

Meanwhile you still have today to get your entries in for Challenge #114.

Hi, everyone! After a suitable hiatus I'm hoping you'll be interested in picking up this challenge again. For anyone who's new here - welcome!

Probably the hardest thing about running an icon challenge is finding suitable images for the challenges. I'm going to be asking you guys for some help with that, when I figure out what it is I want to ask for - also, I'm thinking it could be interesting to do a post-challenge comments post to find out what you liked/didn't like/found difficult about each one.

Meanwhile, here's Challenge #114:

James Franco )

There'll be a bit of a change to the voting, in that I shall post the voting eight days from today, and the results will go up the following weekend—you will have until Thursday to vote, then we can perhaps have a conversation about the challenge before the winners are announced. Let's see how that goes.

For the moment, I will post a fresh challenge next Saturday, but if weekly challenges are too much I will cut back to fortnightly. Have fun!

Hmm. It looks as though Challenge #112 has inspired nobody... unless we get a cheering bunch of entries today?

Anyway. On to Challenge #113: )

I'm starting a course tomorrow morning, so I suspect voting posts will be going up in the early afternoon (UK time) for the next two months. I hope that won't be a problem.

Meanwhile, you still have time to get your entries in for Challenge #111.

Okay, bit of a slow start to the new year, but let's see how it goes. Do please publicise this community wherever you can, I think we can do with some more participants.

Hello, welcome back, and a belated Happy New Year!

If you're anything like me you will be quite looking forward to getting back into your normal routine again, so I hope lots of you are ready to come back and make some more icons for this challenge. And do, please, tell icon-making friends about this community. I'm sure we could do with a few more members!

Plus, I'd like to say welcome to [livejournal.com profile] iconsoleander, who's offered to be my back-up mod.

Right, on with the challenge.

If anyone would like to offer suggestions about subjects we could use for this challenge, I'd be delighted to hear from you—comment here or send me a message. Image sources would be particularly welcome.

Have fun!

This one's a Textures Challenge. )

I'm going to be somewhat out of range for organising voting and posting challenges for a little while, so I'm going to put up Bigger Challenges and give you more time to complete them. Normal service will resume when I get back!
