Hello, and welcome to sgc_elite, an elite Stargate:SG1, Stargate:Universe, and Stargate:Atlantis icon posting community.
If you feel you make high quality, aesthetically pleasing icons of either of these shows, and would like to become a member, please apply here.
Any tutorials or tips you want to post are also welcome. Same goes for links to screencaps. You may also participate in the challenges if you ARE NOT a member.
A B O U T THE COMM
This is an elite icon posting community catering specifically to Stargate:SG1 and its spinoff, Stargate:Atlantis, as well as Stargate:Universe. This community is by invitation only.
To become a member, you must apply at this post by showcasing between 7 and 13 *no more, no less* of what you consider to be your best or most recent icons. In order to be accepted, you must be approved by both paperwirexit and emily_reich, the maintainers of this community.
The only reason paperwirexit and emily_reich must approve you is that this is a closed community for the best of the best. paperwirexit does not consider herself to be the best iconmaker of any fandom, but she is the maintainer and she started this comm.
If you don't feel ready to apply, or would rather just stay for the pretty icons, please feel free to watch this community. To do so, click on the watch button at the top of this page.
NO ONE should click on the join community link.
A B O U T THE CHALLENGES
-These challenges can be based on a cap, photo, word, theme, lyric, anything really. -Challenges will all be based on the Stargate world and the art world. ie. We may post multiple pics for a blend or wallpaper. Or we may request a header, tutorial, or icon etc. -NON MEMBERS MAY PARTICIPATE in the challenges.

You're not gonna get kicked out if you don't participate in them. -Specific rules for each challenge will be posted in the challenge post. -No anonymous entering. You must be logged in when you submit. -No posting of the challenge entry anywhere else until voting has finished. -No telling anyone which entry is yours. -No getting your friends to vote for you.
GENERAL R U L E S
-If applying, you must be able to handle constructive criticism. Elite communities are not around for the purpose of telling iconmakers they don't deserve to be members, they are here to help iconmakers improve their standards, and to supply LJ members with high quality icons. -No bashing or flaming of members. -No bashing of actors or characters relating to the Stargate premise. -Keyword is 'firing line' or key two words... -Do not link to multifandom icon posts or otherwise IF these posts contain LESS THAN SIX Stargate related icons. If this rule is broken, the post will be deleted without warning. -Do not advertise this community in other communities you are a member of, UNLESS you have gotten permission from that community's maintainers/mods first. -DO NOT post cuts to FRIENDS LOCKED entries. All links you post MUST BE PUBLIC ie. your graphics journal is friends locked, then you must make that specific entry public OR post the icons to this community. Same goes for tutorials.
