May/June Icon Contest

The winning icons for the March/April icon contest have been selected, and they are shown to the left and right of this message. Thanks to everyone who submitted icons!

And now it's time to announce the May/June icon contest: The deadline will be 11:59pm ET on Tuesday, March 6, 2007. If we don't receive enough entries by then to make the contest worthwhile, we'll simply choose our own icons for May and June.

Here is a taste of what the templates will (roughly) look like:

Enter your icon for May
Your icon can go with this color scheme in May! Just submit it by 3/6/07 for a chance to win. For the latest news on the template schemes, click here. Or, learn about other contests.
Enter your icon for June
Your icon can go with this color scheme in June! Just submit it by 3/6/07 for a chance to win. For the latest news on the template schemes, click here. Or, learn about other contests.

Please note that the images will also be placed on the respective backgrounds for each month, so your icon will partially be judged on how well it fits the existing color schemes selected for each month (i.e., orange with purple is typically not a good idea). Submissions must be greater in size than 150 by 150 pixels, and will be scaled down to be no greater than 150 pixels wide. So simple images are just as good, if not better, than intricate ones, but they need to be big enough to be scaled down properly.

Again, the deadline for May and June submissions is 11:59pm ET on Tuesday, March 6, 2007. Email all submissions to:

Please refrain from sending submissions directly to Tim.

Note: The script will be programmed once all the contests are done (in mid-May). In the meantime, I can't promise that the winning entries will go up exactly on May 1 and June 1, respectively. Sorry.

The July/August contest will be announced shortly after the conclusion of the May/June contest.
