Rapture - Best overall icon. One of those icons that totally knocks you for six.
Occupation - Must include actors outside their BSG roles on screen only. Other roles, photo shoots, award show photos, etc. This category can include multiple cast members.
Maelstrom - Icon must display some sort of emotion, whether through the text, cropping, colouring, or character expression.
Valley Of Darkness - Textless Icons. No text, except for allowance of Xs and -s. Tiny text is not allowed.
Act Of Contrition - Best use of text. May not only have Xs .s or -s and must include further textual characters.
Collaborators - Best 'funny' icon.
Litmus - Best use of colour. May be black and white.
Final Cut - Best perspective using cropping and/or framing. Both can look good if used to give the right perspective. For example, a cap you have seen used multiple times can look amazing and breathtaking again, simply by a change of angle.
