Konata's Contest

Postby Chibasa » Sat May 13, 2017 5:55 am

To celebrate Konata's birthday, we're organizing a drawing contest and a writing contest. You can participate to both of em.

- You can only send a maximum of 4 participations in each contest.
- Simple poll vote this time.
- Writings must be sent in google drive format. Example.
- If there is some ties, we will use results without my own vote.


Drawing Contest Rules:
You must draw something related to Otaku Culture, it can be comic, cute, scary, whatever you want.
You can participate even if you're not very good. All must be drawn by yourself, you can't use pictures already existing.
You can use different formats (4koma is allowed for example). However all must be visual, so dialogs are banned from contest. You can still use text if it's not dialog (like "Market " wrote on a market).
Everyone on this forum can participate. To participate send me a PM.

Writing Contest Rules:
You must write a story related to Otaku Culture. It can be comic, cute, scary, whatever you want.
Story must be in english and pretty short (500 words minimum - 1200 words maximum).
Everyone on this forum can participate. To participate: send me a PM.

Deadline:
28 May 11h59 p.m UTC (Konata's birthday)
Polls should be up near start of June.

Help system:
If any volunteer wants to do it; some people could have a "first watch" on some contestants writings who are not very trustful in their english skills, in order to help them with some grammar issues. If someone is volunteer, please just tell it to me, note that you must be good in english.

Rewards:

People may finally have rewards if I can slave Kholdnya after his vacations.


Reminder: People will interpret themselves how much you respect the theme. It's a pretty large one. But if you really capture otaku culture's essence, you may convinced people to vote for you !

otaku... literally mean a big fan of a certain culture or lifestyle, I mean: someone with obsessive interest towards a certain culture or lifestyle..
so, if I write about the lives of football fans, would you call that otaku?


ps.: just for example

If I can see how much your character are passionated by football it would not bother me. Then, it may not be other voters opinions. Not going for japanese linked culture may be a risk, but I let a very opened theme on purpose.

So you mean otaku in the most broad sense, while warning participants that they may lose votes if they follow that sense? Eh? :D

We're a community based around an event directly linked to anime so it's makes sense that voters have all an interest in anime. From this point, writing about football is sure more risky since some people may not be invested from the start in your writing (to take Revvie example). But if your story is good, it's still the most important. It lets artists more possibilities (some may not aiming for the win anyway).

Konata should stop playing MMOs for 9 days straight. That's bad for her health.
