Welcome to Geisha Awards, an Icontest Community for Memoirs of a Geisha. This is a movie that was just recently released. However, the book has been out for some time. The movie stars Ziyi Zhang as the geisha Sayuri and Ken Watanabe as The Chairman. Being set in Japan prior to World War II, this tale depicts the life of a geisha and the secrets which they hide. It is a very beautiful tale.
As most other icon contests, this is a community where a new theme will be announced each Sunday and left up until Friday at around 8:00 P.M CST in the US. Voting will be held until Sunday at around 8:00 P.M. CST in the US. Voting will consist of a vote for the top 3 icons and a special category icon. Feel free to contact one of the mods through their LJ or email if you have any questions. This journal was fashioned after yuna_awards. The pictures in the banners are from Rotten Tomatoes. I can't remember where the brushes came from. I'll work on that. Oh yeah, some textures from OfTheSky.Net.
