1. You will be expected to create at least one screen-sized graphic, a comic, a picspam containing at least 5 pictures or 2:30 minute length video based on a fanwork. Artists may choose to create icons, banners or a header for a fanwork, but those signing up as artists in the initial sign-ups are expected to go beyond a batch of icons or a banner (however large).

3. Artwork may be slash, gen or het.
4. AUs and Crossovers are both allowed.
5. The central element of each work must focus on characters from The X-files.
