Timeline of events:
Sign-ups will remain open throughout the battle. Everyone who signs up by 4th March signs up with a character, episode, general icon theme, and a Gilmore Girls-specific theme (e.g. Stars Hollow, Paul Anka, coffee). Anyone who signs up after 4th March doesn't need to pick a character/episode/etc. It doesn't matter if you didn't get to sign up with a certain character, etc. - that's just there so we get a range of characters etc. to play with.
Themes post goes up on 5th March. All the signed-up characters etc. will be listed and you have to pick two from each category to icon (so a total of 8 icons per maker).
Icons are due 1st April.
Results will go up 2nd April.

I had intended for this to be part of last year's icontalking Awards but I was swamped with real life stuff and never got around to posting it. Better late than never!

* Comment (anon or not, your choice) with positive comments about other makers!
* Comments can be about their icons, but don't have to be - maybe someone gives really good comments or is really enthusiastic, for example
* Comments will be screened to keep out any negativity, but I will endeavour to unscreen them as soon as possible!
