Bleach Chorus
Posting Access:
Select Members

Welcome to bleachorus, an icon contest community created by _alostdream. This community is a weekly icon challenge based on the manga and anime Bleach created by Kubo Tite.

Please join the community in order to participate, but only the banner makers and moderators will have posting access.


01. For each theme, you may submit two or less icons unless otherwise stated. The icon(s) must have a character or scene from Bleach.

02. You are only allowed to use official Bleach art. Manga and anime images, artbooks, or other variations are allowed. Doujinshi/Cosplay/Fanart/Non-Bleach Related images, even if they belong to you, are not allowed.

03. Use at least three readable consecutive words from the lyrics provided. This is a lyrics-based icon-challenge; therefore, if a co-mod cannot read or decipher a icon-maker's word choice, the co-mod has the right NOT to post the icon in the voting post.

04. Do NOT submit an icon that is not made by you. Even if the creator allows you to.

05. Icons must be made just for this community. They MAY NOT be shown to anyone before the contest is over. Do NOT advertise or ask anyone to vote for your icon or tell anyone which icon is yours until the contest is over. Do NOT submit your icons to another icon contest community, even if the two are going on concurrently.

06. Icons must fit LJ standards: 100x100 pixels or less, 40KB or less, and in one of the supported formats: png, jpeg, jpg, gif.

07. When submitting, credit your sources if you are able to. Post where you got the image, brushes, gradients, textures, etc. used in your icon. DO NOT credit yourself in your submission -- we know you made the icon; if you didn't make it, it's disqualified. We put credits on the voting post and we CANNOT put your username/a private or public community/or your sites.

08. Your icons should be hosted in a outside hosting site. Suitable hosting sites include Photobucket and Tiny Pic. (See the submission guidelines below for more information.)

09. Do not create multiple accounts to vote or submit more icons.

10. If you see an icon you want to use, then please contact the person who made the icon (preferably on the winners page). Names of icon-makers will be posted along with the results. Please do not take icons before the results are posted or without asking the icon-maker.

Any breaking of the rules can result in a ban.


Any icon you submit must be hosted on a site that allows direct linking. All submissions should look something like this:

Credits: (CREDIT DOES NOT MEAN YOURSELF. Do not put yourself in the credits. You obviously made the icon or else it'll be disqualified. We put credits on the voting post and we CANNOT put your username/a private or public community/or your sites.)

(^ The above sample icon is made by _alostdream.)


Voting is members-only, but you don't have to have submitted an icon in order to vote. The more votes, the more accurate the results.

You are NOT allowed to vote for yourself, or anonymously, or with more than one LJ account. Do NOT create or use other accounts made by you to vote.

Please vote like this:
1st: 56
2nd: 22
3rd: 35
(SC stands for Special Category)


56, 22, 35, 64

Or in some other format that we would understand. Please note that there isn't always a special category for each theme.

Order DOES matter. First place will get 3pts, second will get 2pts and third will get 1pt. Special category results will be based on the most votes received.

Decide on your vote based by the effects/looks/etc. Do NOT vote for your favourite character or something like that. Vote on what icon you think looks best.


Depending on the votes, there will be a first, second, and third for best overall placing. There will also be a special category and sometimes, moderator's choice. The winners in each category are entitled to a banner if they want one.

Ties will depend on how many votes there are for each icon. If icons are tied for a category, a tie-breaker voting post will be made to break the tie before the results are posted.

Runner-ups will be posted in the order they placed along with the winners.

You must request a banner in a comment or the banner makers will not know you want one. =(


Please note that our lives do not revolve around LJ, and we do not always go on the internet at a set time. Entries will be be posted a random times at a certain day, so we advise you to submit your icon/vote ASAP.

Submission Posts will be posted on a weekly basis. Although originally scheduled for Wednesdays, sometimes the scheduling gets off and we start late. Submission posts will automatically screened. You will have until the next Wednesday or until the co-mod says to submit icons.

Voting Posts will be posted the same day a new theme is posted. Members will have about three days to vote on a screened comment. Be sure to read the voting posts carefully!

Results, along with the name of the week's banner-maker, will be posted about three days after the submission posts. Requested banners will be posted as soon as the banner-makers finish making them (usually within two weeks).

A moderator will post a new theme every week. If a moderator is unable to
post a theme please contact the next moderator (commenting on the voting or
results page is fine) and tell them so they can post a new theme.


Banner Makers
The banner maker for each week will be announced on the submission post and
reminded on the winners' post, just so they know. If a given banner maker isn't available
for a certain week, please comment on the winners' page ASAP so we can find a backup.

Please read each post made by banner makers carefully to see if you are supposed to
save your banner on your own server, or if you are allowed to hotlink.
