This is the award community for all Costume Drama themed icons on livejournal where you can nominate your icons or icons by others. There are a lot of great Costume Drama icons out there and this is the place to pay homage to the makers.

We welcome nominations from any historical / costume period drama up to 1969.

Best in Show - You may only nominate one in this category.

Best Colouring

Best Cropping

Best Use Of Original Text

Best Textless

Best Individual Style - Each maker has their own style, and this is the place to showcase their talent!

Best Painting or Photo - These cannot be from movies, mini-series, etc. They must be from Period Paintings, or Photographs

Best Movie - Icons from Period Movies only; Mini-series icons are now only allowed in the TV Category.

Best TV - Icons from Period Television Shows or Mini Series.

Best Fantasy - Icons from productions such as The Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, Legend of the Seeker, etc. While "period-esque" they are not truly historical, and thus cannot be nominated in the Best Movie or TV categories.

Best Couple - Prettiest couple, your fav. couple, interpret this any way you wish!
