Welcome to the Hero_Awards!
This is an award community for Narnia, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings Icons, Spider Man and Pirates of the Caribean where you can nominate
your icons and icons by others. It is a community that rewards
icon makers of the best icons in LiveJournal.

(Took most these from lotr_awards because their rules are awesome)

For Nominating
1) Please put ALL nominations in one post. Feel free to
edit your post later on to add more nominations. Also,
try to keep them in the order that they're listed in the
userinfo. This isn't absolutely necessary, it just makes
it easier for me when it comes time to create the poll.
2) You can nominate 2 icons per category.
3) All icons nominated must fit the LiveJournal size requirements.
4) All icons MUST have something to do with Star Wars, Narnia, Harry
Potter, Pirates of the Caribean, Spider Man and Lord of the Rings.
5) For every icon of your own that you nominate, you must nominate
two icons of someone else's.
6) Please inform the creator of the icon that they've been nominated.
It's not necessary, but I'm sure they'd like to know so they can
see whether or not they win.
7) Please don't post nominations behind an lj-cut.
8) All nominations must be in before the voting is posted on Saturday.
9) The only categories that icons of actors out of costume can
be nominated in are Cast & Crew and Best Overall.
11) If an icon has been nominated before but did not win, it can be
nominated again. But, if an icon has won before, it cannot be nominated again
in that category. All past winners can be found at the winners archive and
in the community's memories.

1) Best Overall Icon
For the icon that you think is the very best. It can fall into any category.
2) Lyrical/Words
For icons with lyrics or any words that aren't from the books or movie scripts.
Text must be legible.
3) Quote
For icons with a quote from the books or movie scripts. Text must be legible.
4) Funny
For all funny icons.
5) Emotional
For those icons full of angst.
6) 'Shipper
For icons of a certain 'ship. What's a ship? A relationship. A pairing.
It can be canon or otherwise.
7) Cast & Crew
For icons of an actor or actress from the movies out of costume, anyone
involved with Star Wars, Harry Potter, Spider Man, Pirates of the Caribean, the Lord of the Rings or Narnia.
8) Wordless
For icons with no words on them. Icons with tiny, unreadable text count
as wordless, since the "text" is only there for decoration.
9) Best Use of Color
For icons with the best coloring.
10) Best Cropping
For icons with the best cropping.
11) Black and White/Black and White with a Touch of Color
For the best icon that is either black and white or black and
white with only a splash of color.
12) Best Hero
Choose the best hero icon out of all the fandoms.

You can use this:

1. Voting is done in poll form. You can only vote ONCE, this
includes if you have more than one journal.
2. Vote in ALL categories.
3. Voting for your own icon is prohibited.
Pick someone else's that you like.
4. Try not to be biased. Pick the icon that you think is the best
and deserves to win. Don't just vote for one that your friend made,
or includes your favorite character.
