However, I know there are some talented artists among us, and we would love you to leave your mark on the community! As such, I propose a contest to come up with a layout and matching graphics for uk_lolitas. They can be drawn, photographic, minimalistic, or whatever you like so long as it is lolita in theme (not necessarily directly either: Alice In Wonderland, Victoriana, afternoon tea- let your imagination go wild!). Extra kudos if you manage to tie it in with the UK in some way or another as well.
Top prize: if someone comes up with a truly stunning layout set with icons, banner etc that we decide to use, I will send you out a small burando prize (think pin-on bows, jewelry, hair accessories)! And, of course, your work will be credited on the userinfo page.
Second prize: if you're not great with livejournal layouts but make a set of icons, banners and other graphics that we'd like to use, you'll also receive a few small gifts of thanks and due credit for use.
Submit all entries to email@example.com. The contest will end on Monday the 10th of September, so get creative now!
