a 20in20 community devoted to the Whedonverse/Jossverse


The basic part of a 20in20 is that you are making 20 icons in 20 days. Here at Whedon20in20, you will be making 20 icons featuring characters from the creative mind of Joss Whedon -- this means that Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse, and Dr. Horrible are all fair game. [You are also allowed to pull from the Buffy, Angel, Firefly and Fray comics.]

I didn't come up with this style of icontest. That credit goes to celeb20in20 -- the original 20in20 challenge.


Check out the sign up post!

You don't have to choose a character/show to focus on. All you have to do is claim your spot with your name/location. You can use any combination of Whedon shows/characters to fill your 20 icon requirement--you can even make 20 icons of a single character.


These will be given out for:

+ Best icon for each theme.
+ Top 3 sets of category icons.
+ Top 3 sets of artist's choice icons.
+ Top 3 category icons.
+ Top 3 artist's choice icons.


+ You must be signed up to participate. If you missed sign-ups for this month, friend the community and stick around for the great icons, voting, and next month's challenge. :)

+ Challenges will run from the 1st of the month until the 20th at midnight. (This is where your individual timezones come in to play. No matter where you are, the challenge will end for you at midnight on the 20th.)

+ ICON POSTS MUST BE PUBLIC UNTIL VOTING IS CLOSED. You are allowed to either post here to the community, or at your own journal/icon journal.

+ Icons must all be new and made specifically for this challenge.

+ Icons must fit Livejournal standards. (No larger than 100x100 and 40kb.) NO ANIMATION.

+ Let's keep things PG-13, please. Everyone's bits and pieces should be covered for the most part, and don't leave f-bombs all over the place. If you are unsure whether an icon would be okay, feel free to ask.

+ Post with only 3 teaser icons. Everything else should be below a cut or after a link. If you post them elsewhere, again, please remember that the post must be PUBLIC until the end of the month.

+ You don't have to worry about tagging. I'll take care of it for you.

+ Please try and comment on each other's posts. You know how much you enjoy receiving feedback, so be sure to give as well as just waiting to receive. ;)

+ Voting will go up after the challenge closes.

+ Sign ups for the following challenge will typically be posted approximately 10 days before the beginning of the next month/challenge.
