is proud to announce what is, quite possibly, the greatest anime art competition ever held…
Before we jump into the contest though, a little background:
This contest is on behalf of and will be a major part of AnimeFF, a fully funded non-profit anime convention that is being held in Las Vegas on January 13th and 14th.
Because AnimeFF is fully funded, 100% of ticket proceeds will go to Breast Cancer research. This one of the reasons our site has been so active in promoting it.
We’re trying to push pre-registrations to this convention, so if you live in the Vegas area or can make it out there, click here
for convention details or more importantly click here
to pre-register ($20). We need your help in spreading the word, so if you run a website or know people in Vegas, please give us a mention.
While the convention’s website is a little lacking now, there will be at least three popular anime voice actors present, interesting panels, cosplayers in attendance, and now, something very different…
We are excited to announce that AnimeFF will feature a gallery of YOUR anime artwork. And no, this won’t be a normal gallery. Each piece featured will have a breast cancer awareness theme to it. We believe the combination of pieces will create a powerful and interesting exhibit, all for a good cause.
The contest is as follows:
From now until December 20th, submit your fan art entry to theOtaku.com's fan art
site (you have to register first to do this) with the tag “awareness” and include *something* in the piece related to breast cancer awareness. We’re keeping the latter requirement loose; you can use the color pink prolifically, you can feature the breast cancer awareness ribbon, or you can go all-out on the subject. Characters depicted must be original creations, nothing from licensed anime (e.g. Naruto, DragonBall, etc.). Be creative!
After December 20th, we will select all or a portion of the submissions and prepare them for exhibition at AnimeFF. On site, attendees will vote on their favorite works. There will be EIGHT winners, based on votes. You do not have to attend the convention to enter this contest, only to vote.
Sadly, this contest is only open to people based in the United States, due to technical/legal issues.
Here are the prizes:
First place: PlayStation 3
Second place: PlayStation 3
Third place: Nintendo Wii
Fourth place: Nintendo Wii
Fifth place: Nintendo Wii
Sixth place: Nintendo Wii
Seventh place: Nintendo Wii
Eighth place: Nintendo Wii
We already have the prizes on-hand, so availability of the consoles is not an issue.
If you’re an anime artist, this is THE competition for you. First, even if you don’t win, it’s an incredible portfolio booster, since your art will be published at a gallery for a non-profit cause. Second, if you do win—and your odds are rather good if you’re a top artist—you’ll be rewarded with a huge portfolio booster AND a next-generation game console.
An easy contest to enter, eight amazing prizes, a great cause, and a gallery to remember.
Let’s get started. And don’t forget to pre-register
for the actual convention!
