Welcome to game_lyrical, a lyrical icon challenge. This challenge is dedicated to video or computer games only. Any game, regardless of genre, is welcome.

Every week, a new song will be posted, and it's your job to use those provided song lyrics to make an icon. Should you happen to win, our hardworking team of banner makers will present you with a banner displaying your winnings.

Sound like fun? I certainly hope so. If this is the challenge for you, then by all means, join and begin competing today!

  ■ You MUST be a member in order to participate.
  ■ You may submit up to two icons per challenge.
  ■ Your icon(s) must use a minimum of three consecutive words from the provided lyrics.
  ■ All icons must be newly made, and should not have been displayed anywhere previously.
  ■ Icons must be compatible to Livejournal's current standards: up to 100x100 in pixels and 40 KB in file size.
  ■ Don't use fanart on your avatar. Doujinshi art is ok.
  ■ If you've participated in a challenge, you're NOT allowed to vote for your own.
  ■ Do not get your friends to vote for you. The purpose is to keep this challenge fair.
  ■ Don't steal any of the icons made here! If a challenge is done and you wish to use an avatar, please let the maker know!
  ■ Enjoy participating in the challenge in any way, either by submitting or voting, of course!

This challenge, like most icontests, occurs weekly. Every Sunday night a new theme will be given, and you'll be given until the following Sunday night to submit. Voting begins once the submission period closes. Please post your submission to the theme entry of that week. All comments will be screened so your submission will remain private. Make sure your image host has direct linking capabilities!

Fortunately, once I've received the icon, I'll upload the avatar onto my account so people wouldn't cheat and know who had made the icon.

Format goes, as follows:

URL: http://i45.photobucket.com/albums/f70/layouts_ahoy/game_lyrical/commicon.png
Video Game: Vagrant Story
Character(s): Ashley Riot and Callo Merlose

Once submitting has been closed, voting will commence from Sunday night to Tuesday night. A new theme will also be put up soon after submitting has be closed. In order to vote, you must be a member. Once the voting is closed, winners will be announced soon after. You will not be allowed to vote for your own avatar.

Awards will be given out in the following categories:
First Place
Second Place
Third Place

The following are the special awards, which aren't always given out:
Most Lyrical: The avatar with best lyric representation.
