100x100 icons of celebrities, tv shows, movies and music.
Welcome to 100icons! This is an icon challenge community for movies, TV, celebrities and more.

The challenge is to create 100 icons based on the topic of your choice, using the 100 themes given below. Your topic could be as broad as ‘ABC television’ (creating icons for any show on ABC – though this is highly discouraged), an entire television show (creating icons from any season of a chosen show), or even as narrow as a single episode of a chosen show (though this would be quite a challenge to fill 100 icons from one single episode – but if you think you can do it, I’d like to see you try).

You have 100 days to complete 100 icons. If you take this challenge and complete it, you’ll be added to the Hall of Fame.

7 Steps to joining the challenge:

1. You must submit your claim and be approved before starting to post. Your 100 days will begin the day of approval, not the day of your submission.

2. You are expected to post any completed work along the way (preferably in groups of 10+). If you have not submitted a single icon by the end of your first 30 days, your topic will be revoked and open to potential challengers. Please notify me if you need to drop the challenge - but all challenges must be dropped no later than 70 days into your challenge or you're added to the Hall of Shame.

3. Obvious pimping of your journal or community is not allowed. If you wanna mention it when posting your submitted work, by all means. But it shouldn’t be the only reason you’re posting.

4. Use an LJ-cut if you’re posting more than 3 icons at once.

5. When posting your submissions, use the following format:

Challenge topic:
Due date:
Icons in this post:
Icons completed in total:

It is recommended that when posting updates, you bold the new entries so commenters know what's new.

6. When you complete your challenge, you should post the 100 on THIS COMMUNITY. You can still direct people to your own journal's entry (for viewing and comments), but your 100 completed will not be added to memories or linked to without being post here also. I suggest you lj-cut the 100 icons on this community and add a large/bold fake-cut back to your own site.

7. Tell your friends.


These themes can be used as text or actual image, however you feel like interpreting the word. You can also change the tense of these words, like ‘remember’ to ‘remembered’ or ‘beauty’ into ‘beautiful’. As long as it’s a form of the word.

If you have any questions about these themes or need some suggestions on how to incorporate them into icons, don’t hesitate to ask.

You can find the code for this table to add to your journal here.

How can it be called a FAQ if people haven’t asked these questions yet? I think it should be called a PAQ

Potentially Asked Questions:

Can I submit work already completed?
Sure, but if more than a quarter of your challenge comes from completed work, what kinda challenge is that?

Can I use my work for other challenges?
Umm, okay.

Do I have to create the icons in order?
Nope, not at all. Go in any order you please.

Can I share the challenge with someone else?
No, no, no. Otherwise this would be called 50icons.

What if I just don’t tell you?
I’ll find out and we’ll all boo at you.

What do I do when I'm finished?
Post all 100 icons in THIS COMMUNITY (as well as your own journal if you please). This is the only way your completed icons will be added to memories for future people to see (instead of your posted thread getting lost in the shuffle). You can still fake cut to your journal so that commenters can post there, but your actual 100 should be on this site too. Then tell us about it here so we can celebrate.

What happens if I can't complete my challenge?
You are added to the HALL OF SHAME.

Can I drop my challenge before my due date?
Challenges can be dropped no later than 70 days into your challenge. If you try to drop your challenge on day 71 or later, you'll simply be added to the HALL OF SHAME once your 100 days are up.

Can I get an extension on my challenge?
This isn't 105icons.

That means no, you can't.

You haven’t been helpful at all. Now what?
