There really isn't a general challenge anymore. Rules are differnet almost every week so make sure to read the rules each week. The general rules are only use images provided, no blending of any of the images. However, you can crop, color, animate (only using the one picture), add text (not mandatory) or do pretty much whatever you wish as long as it follows the basic guidelines.
Every week a challenge will be posted. Post your icons as a comment in that post. All comments are screened to ensure anonymity so do not post your icons elsewhere until the results have been posted.
When you vote, vote for the amount of icons the post says to vote for, it changes sometimes but most of the time it is three.
After the votes are tallied the top three winners are announced as well as the two Moderator’s Choices (MC). Banners are given out to those who ask for them.
