ROUND 3 SPECIFIC RULES
+ You must be signed up in order to submit icons and take part in the challenge.
+ In order to be signed up, you must be both a watcher and member of the community.
+ Icons need to fulfill the requirements of the Technical and Interpretative themes. If one or more icon does not fulfill the requirements of the Technical or Interpretative themes, a moderator of the community will let you know why it does not fulfill the requirements, and ask you to resubmit the icon.
+ All icons must be newly made for this challenge, and must be made by you.
+ All icons must follow livejournal guidelines (under 40kb, etc).
+ Round 3 has a specific focus on MOVIES/FILM. If one or more icons does not fulfill the technical requirements, a moderator will ask you to resubmit your icon.
+ Any stock, textures, brushes, or effects that you desire may be used except for animation. At this point, we are not accepting animated submissions.
+ Submissions must be kept secret until voting for each Challenge has finished.
+ To sign up, simply reply to this post with your user name. You may sign-up at any time during the Sign-Up or Submission time period. Once you have signed up, your name will be added to this spreadsheet.
+ Voting for Round 3 will be considered throughout the submissions process. The moderators are looking into the value of weighted voting against non-weighted voting. We will be asking for member opinion on this, and therefore the voting process for Round 3 may differ slightly.
+ You will vote for you 3 favourite icons and you will need to provide constructive criticism for at least 2 icons.
+ Voting for the 'Special Category' will remain the same. For the Technical Themes, the special category will be 'Best Cinematography' [Best Interpretation]. For the Interpretative Themes, the special category will be 'Best Art Direction' [Most Creative].
+ During the sign up period, members who are signed up may earn up to two bonus points that will be added to their final points tally.

+ To gain both bonus points, you must promote to two separate communities.
+ The promotion must contain a link to this community, and you can find pre-made promotion banners in our profile.
