Theme Of The Month Rules - 2022

Published by on May 5th.

What is it?

The Theme Of The Month is an experiment and all users are welcome to participate. The idea is that each month, starting with March 2013, there will be a theme. Any user that wishes to participate will need to create a quality set of icons or cursors that relate to the theme. All participants, that create a set that meet the requirements, will receive a price.

Cursors must be in the size 32x32 pixels, may also include 48x48 pixels, but that is not required
Icon sets must contain at least 5 icons of different design (No re-coloring)
All Icons will need to be available in at least all of the following sizes- 16x16, 24x24, 32x32, and 48x48 pixels
Only one set per user. If you create more than one, you will need to pick which one you like better, to be use for the experiment
Only sets posted within the month, corresponding with the theme, will be excepted
Additional Info + Tips

The top cursor set and the top icon set will be featured in the announcement of the theme for the next month next month
After uploading your set send me a PM with a link to your set
Due to differences in time zones, I don't recommend that you post your set on the first or last day of the month

Good Luck to all of you
