This year for Fanpop Human Rights Awareness Month, I am doing an icon theme. I want to have four Human Rights Icon Contests (one for every week of December), with different themes for each week.
November 27-December 7
: The first theme will be World AIDS day
, which is December 1st. This contest will start now, and go until December 6th. Voting will occur on the 7th.
December 8-December 14
: The second theme will be Celebrate Human Rights
, in accordance with the theme for International Human Rights Day
on December 10. This contest will start on the 8th, and go until the 13th. Voting occurs on the 14th.
December 15- December 21
: This is a general Human Rights
theme, where anything goes. This contest will start on the 15th and go until the 20th. Voting occurs on the 21st.
December 22-Dcember 31
: This theme will be a tri-themed icon contest. Three concepts, determined by the winners of the first three contests, will be given to contestants, who can make icons based on one or all three themes. The winner of this contest, and the winner of the previous three, will each receive graphics by me for "Best Icon, HRAM 2011."
The second icon-themed idea I had was to offer to create icons for everyone on Fanpop who wants to show their support of human rights this season. Examples of human rights icons I made can be seen below.
The first row are icons specifically made for past HRAM events.
For more images, I encourage you to check out my livejournal
, in particular this post on Human Rights
and this post on the Rally to Restore Sanity
. I am willing to make custom icons
for anyone who asks. I can do it of your favorite HR quote, favorite cause, favorite TV show/characters with the HRAM stamp of approval, favorite holiday theme (Christmas, Hanukkah, etc), what have you. Just ask, and I'll make one.
If you're interested in participating in any of these things, let me know. The contest will take place in the forums. Click here to join the contest!
