Well hello DroidRzr, I have some awesome news to share with you. DR is teaming up with Tha Phlash to hold the raddest, baddest, all around coolest contest in the history of the universe*. Just in case your mom just started letting you on the internet today, Tha Phlash is arguably tha best icon creator in Android community. He has created tha most diverse, creative, and intricate library of icon packs and themes around. I was going to count tha packs on his website so I could post tha exact number, but my eyes started to bleed after an hour of counting. It would be much more healthy for my retinas for you to just go on over to right now and check out his work; go ahead, I'll wait...
So tha contest is to see who can put together tha best theme/homescreen using one or more icon packs made by Tha Phlash. You can use any of his sets that you wish, and mix and match as well; many of his icon sets complement each other. You can put forth as many entries as you can cook up so go nuts. There will be prizes awarded for first, second, and third place; and the winners will be judged by Tha Phlash himself! Tha prizes are as follows:
First Place - 20 of Tha Phlash's icon packs
Second Place - 10 of Tha Phlash's icon packs
Third Place - 5 of Tha Phlash's icon packs
As long as you are using icons made by Tha Phlash there is really only one rule. If you submit multiple entries, they have to be varied enough to warrant that extra entry. If you are using completely different icon packs this obviously does not apply to you; but if you use tha same icons and just change around tha format or something similar, then Phlash will pick which one he thinks is better and only judge that one entry. To enter, just post a screenshot of your homescreen in a reply to this thread. Make sure to include tha names of tha icon packs used, and any other information that is pertinent to your entry (ROM/theme name if it contributes to your look). Please only submit one entry per post; if you want to submit multiple entries then create a new post for every entry. Also, this contest is open to any mobile device (including tablets), so please include the name of the device your theme was created on.
As stated above, Phlash himself will be judging tha entries. I could list a bunch of stuff that I think he is going to consider when looking over the entries, but I'll just let him tell you himself:
- harmony with non icon item
- overall feel.
So there you go, straight from tha horse's mouth. Since this contest is being judged by him anyone on DR is free to enter. This includes staff and developers/themers. Here is the really pertinent information:
