After you’ve finished your submission, you’ll be competed against other participants and a winner will be chosen. Check out more for rules, prompts, and prizes.

    The entry time has ended. No further entries will be accepted. To those who entered – Good luck!

How to Participate

  2. Take a look at the prompt questions and get working! Icons should be specifically created for this challenge, not the ones you’ve created before.
  3. After you’re done with the 10 icons, post them on your site or upload them somewhere on the net, and link them to us in a comment. If you post it on your site, please link back to this post with the banner provided above so others can join the fun too.

  7. chelle! what does it mean by “time”? I still don’t get it :(

    Comment by hyoori — December 21, 2009 @ 10:24 am

    • Eh, it means you describe the time when you’re making the icon… such as ‘morning’, ‘summer’, ‘christmas’, ‘2012’, etc… sorry if it’s not clear enough ><
