Hello and Welcome to the Coldplay Icon Awards Community!


Inspired by sw_awards and lost_awards, this is an icon awards community in which you may nominate your own and other iconmaker's Coldplay icons. At the end of every two weeks, there will be a poll featuring these icons. The icon in each category with the most votes wins the category. There are 15 categories and one special category that changes each week. Even if you are not an iconmaker, you can still nominate and vote to your little Coldplay-loving heart's content. Join the fun! Read on to get started:
