August Rush - final fandom choices

Thank you to everyone who voted in the August Rush poll! I have just closed the poll and would like to announce the fandoms we'll be covering this year. hiddlepinebatch is helping run the challenge this August, and as there wasn't a clear fifth place, we have decided to run it with six fandoms! Woo! Therefore there will be 30 pictures up each week, with a total of 120 for the four weeks August Rush runs, or 20 pictures per fandom over the whole period.

The fandoms for this year's August Rush are:

1. Agents-of-SHIELD

2. Almost Human

3. Harry Potter-small

5. sherlock-small

4. SG-Universe-small

6. Star-Trek-TNG-small

August Rush starts on Monday the 4th August, and runs until the end of August. These are the rules:

1. The challenge will run for 20 days for the weekdays from 4-8, 11-15, 18-22 and 25-29 August, with the weekends as 'catch-up' days.
2. Every day of the challenge I will post a graphic from each of the chosen fandoms as above, as voted by you.
3. For each day's graphic in your chosen fandom/s, you will be asked to create at least either a drabble or two icons.
4. Should you wish, you can collect up your week's graphics and from all of them create at least a 500+ word fic, ten icons, or a banner/wallpaper
- OR you can wait and write a 2K+ fic from all of them for the month, or create 40 icons, or 5 banners/wallpapers
- OR create any combination of the above that makes up the numbers, eg: 1 banner, 10 icons, 5 drabbles and one 500 word fic; or 20 icons and a 1K fic; or any other combo like this
5. If you want to choose a different fandom for each week, each day, or any other combination that works for you (all of them if you want!), that's up to you. You can do all the days for more than one fandom.
6. Post in your journal or wherever you normally do and please link your creation/s for each day back to that day's post rather than in a separate post. At the end of the week, I'll post a 'creation' entry and we'll summarise all the week's goodies there.
- OR you may choose to hold off and just post the link/s on the 'weekly catch-up post'; totally up to you on that, but feel free to post your creations in your own journal and/or wherever you post in the meantime; that's just dandy! I'll do a final post once the month's over to show everything we created and their counts.

Any questions? Now's your chance to ask, or just PM me. ;-)

And if anyone has access to screen-caps or other good high-def graphics that they haven't already provided for any of the above fandoms, let me know in the comments here.

I hope everyone can find something to create words or graphics from, and I apologise if your favourite fandom didn't come up, but no doubt we'll run it again next year, so it may be in the running then. Otherwise, just have fun with the graphics, like I did last year, as seen here. ;-P

YAY! ;-)

Yay! A couple of fandoms I'm even in! LOL

For Sherlock and Almost Human screencaps, look here: http://midnight-road.livejournal.com/

Thank you for the link - that will be very handy! ;-)

You are very welcome - hope that the link helps. :)

If you need any pics or screenscaps for StarGate (SG1 or Atlantis... not Universe), just let me know. I've got all of the high-rest pics from MGM for SG1 as well as a ton of screencaps I've done and also some pics from Atlantis.
Jul. 25th, 2014 10:17 pm (UTC)
Wonderful! Thank you, and I may consult you and the other SG fans about how many of each 'verse to use, if you don't mind.
Jul. 26th, 2014 12:37 am (UTC)
Don't mind at all although I might be a bit prejudiced...SG1 - lots and lots and lots; Atlantis - some; Universe - do we have to?
Jul. 26th, 2014 12:41 am (UTC)
Some of us really enjoyed SGU! :P
Jul. 25th, 2014 04:25 pm (UTC)
Yay Agents of SHIELD and Harry Potter! And I was worried there weren't going to be any fandoms I knew! xD
Jul. 25th, 2014 10:17 pm (UTC)
I'm so glad you like! ;-)

Glad you approve! ;-)

for TNG (and any future time any of the Treks are voted into a Rush), Trekcore is THE #1 source for screencaps. They have both DVD AND HD Blu-Ray to choose from.
Jul. 25th, 2014 10:18 pm (UTC)
Thank you! That's wonderfully helpful! ;-)
Jul. 25th, 2014 10:10 pm (UTC)
I tend to default to Home of the nutty for Harry Potter.
Jul. 25th, 2014 10:19 pm (UTC)
Excellent! Thanks for the link! ;-)
Jul. 25th, 2014 10:25 pm (UTC)
No problem!

Wasn't sure what links you have been given, etc. Doubled is better than none, though!
Jul. 25th, 2014 10:28 pm (UTC)
Absolutely! Don't think we had any for HP though, so it definitely helps! ;-)

In other news, every time I see "August Rush" in my inbox, it makes me want to watch August Rush LOL
Jul. 25th, 2014 10:43 pm (UTC)
HA! Although it's not unrelated as I'd not long seen the film when I first ran this challenge and the title was completely stolen from it (and Alex O'Loughlin was in it, hence my interest in the first place)!
Jul. 25th, 2014 10:46 pm (UTC)
LOL I forgot he was in the band!
Jul. 26th, 2014 12:26 am (UTC)
Yes....there are fandoms that I like and plan on taking part this year! I'll have to play catch up after I get back from the con.
Jul. 27th, 2014 02:12 am (UTC)
YAY! I'm so glad. And catch-ups are totally allowed. I hope you have time to play! ;-)
