Rules and information  


You need to be a member of the community in order to vote or submit your icon.
Don't cheat and don't creat drama.
Only Pandora Hearts icons are accepted here, of course.


This is an weekly icontest community, we focus on the series Pandora Hearts by Mochizuki Jun.

If you're the winner, you might claim your reward, it might be either a brushes set, a pattern, a commercial/rare font or a textures set... You can see the prizes here.


Each week you will be given three themes from which to choose to work with: a general (conceptual or technical), visual (image, stock photo/vector, texture/brush etc.) and textual (lyrics, poetry, quote, etc.) based one. This is for the sake of variety, you can repeat, alternate or combine themes as you wish as long as your icon(s) fit at least one of the challenges provided. Please suggest theme ideas for future challenges at this post.


If you have placed (1st, 2nd, 3rd or MC), please leave a comment at the results post stating whether or not you would like a banner and the moderator will make you one if requested. Kindly also provide any fonts/images/resources you used, as that would be very helpful, and specify if there is a certain type/style of banner you prefer.

Please check this tag for past banners made during Week 1-173 and from Week 334 going forward. All other banners (Week 174-333) were outsourced to either [info]custom_banners or [info]cb_overflow, with the exception of special milestone challenges.

We do not currently have a staff of bannermakers, as your moderator just doesn't have the time to manage one. If you are interested in helping to make banners for other icontests, then consider volunteering at the above mentioned communities.

Remember to treat your bannermakers with respect: be patient and always say thank-you when you claim yours.


Based on popular vote, there will be a first, second and third place icon for Best Overall. An additional non-placing icon will be selected by myself as Moderator's Choice when we have at least eight icons, provded there are not multiple ties etc. that cause the remaining entry level to drop significantly or half the entries to have already placed. All winners may receive banners if they wish to have one made.

Two-way ties will stand, but anything greater will result in a tiebreaker round that will last for approximately twelve hours. The winner(s) of the tiebreaker round will earn their respective placement(s). The remaining icon(s) will receive honourable mentions in recognition of their efforts, but not a banner.

Along with the winners I will be listing the runner-ups icons anonymously in order of ranking. This isn't meant to make anyone feel bad, its to let you know how you did and encourage everyone to keep trying. I think it's important to get such feedback. If this really makes you uncomfortable though, please mention so in your submission comment and I'll simply leave your entry number(s) unlisted.
