Welcome to the icontest community for manga icons, mangaicontest! Aptly named for its purpose, this LiveJournal community is maintained by its founder and mod chopstickicons and co-moderator, sakura_201. Members can submit to the themes or vote by screen commenting, so posting access is not needed.

Mangaicontest is an icontest where participants submit icons that use manga pictures as their subject, and are made according to the weekly themes. Any type of manga is fine, be it shoujo or shounen!


What is manga? (Source: Wikipedia)

Manga (漫画) is the Japanese word for comics and print cartoons; outside of Japan, it usually refers specifically to Japanese comics. Manga developed from a mixture of ukiyo-e and Western styles of drawing, and took its current form shortly after World War II. It comes mainly in black and white, except for the covers and maybe the first few pages.

With that said, happy iconing! :D




1. Make sure that your icon entry is manga only. No anime. However, coloured manga is allowed.
2. Be sure that your icon actually comes from an official manga. No icons from video games please.
3. Official art only. No fanart or doujinshi.
4. The maximum number of icons you can submit is 2. No more.
5. Advertising your icon before the winners post is posted will lead to a disqualification.
6. No flaming whatsoever. This community is supposed to be fun, not a place filled with drama.
7. Make sure that the icon is your own. No stealing. >:O
8. If you want to snag an icon from the community, you have to ask the creator's permission first.
9. You must be a member to participate and vote.




1. Icons must be under 40k and have to be compatible with LiveJournal.
2. Your icon should be uploaded to an image hosting site such as Photobucket which allows direct linking.
3. No cheating. Vote fairly. Don't vote for yourself. Don't use multiple accounts to vote.
4. Voting deadline is at 9PM PST on Friday.
5. Icons should be submitted like this:

Character(s)/Series: Syaoran and Sakura / Card Captor Sakura
