Off the Box

An icontest for TV shows that are no longer in production

Posting Access:
All Members

Off the Box is an icon contest dedicated to television shows that are no longer producing new episodes. We aim to cover as much as possible in here, from classics to Saturday morning cartoons, sitcoms to science fiction, multi-season shows to ones that lasted only a handful of episodes, and everything in between.

There will be one challenge per week. That challenge can range from something as specific as screencaps from a particular episode of a TV show to a broad and open-ended theme like "darkness".

Membership is by invitation only, which means you must apply in order to participate. For more information about the application process, take a look at the rules below and our application post.

All shows not currently in production (cancelled, not renewed, faded into obscurity, better left in obscurity) are allowed. Check out our incomplete list for examples.

You have to be a member to participate in the challenges, but any registered LiveJournal user can vote. Please friend the community to keep updated on challenges and voting.

Membership is by invitation only. You have to apply to be given posting access. Please apply here. Do not join the community until you have received an invite from one of the mods.

Make the subject of your application your favourite cancelled TV show to indicate you've read the rules.

If you're not accepted, don't be discouraged. Feel free to apply again once you feel you have improved.

Challenges will run for 6 days, from Sunday to Friday, at which point voting will be posted and remain open for a period of about 24 hours. Sadly, life does happen from time to time, so it is possible that not all challenge, voting, and/or winners posts will be on time, but we will endeavour to do our best.

Submit your entries as a new post to the community. Be sure to include both IMG SRC and URL formats. Unless it is specified by the challenge, please also include the TV show your icon is from.
