Welcome to scifi_icontest an icontest community for 3 of the best sci_fi shows around, Battlestar Galactica, Stargate SG1 and Farscape.
Just because they have been cancelled doesn't make them any less fabulous and I for one still love iconing them.
The original idea came from sf_incadescent since I loved their contests I decided to start a similar community when they shut down.
There will be a seperate cap challenge for each show. The caps challenge will provide you with Screen captures or promo pics with which to make icons. The theme challenges will be composed of all shows and each challenge will follow a different theme. For theme challenges you may use any pictures you like unless otherwise stated and you can choose which show or combination of the 3 shows to use.
