This looks interesting.  What kind of artwork are you looking for?  Original, fanart?  Lanscape, portrait, both?

I was wondering if you will take multiple submissions? And if female characters have a better chance of winning, seeing as it has been a female character on the cover every year.

I think Nightblade means a full animal/human hybrid, not just ears and a tail.  (Although I could be wrong since I can't read NightBlade's mind)

The mascot will will not nessisarily be the front cover art for the program guide. The winner will have the option of drawing one too but will be very busy on their own right... ie working with our graphic designer and myself to create the posters, badges, bumper stickers, flyers, ect. and will be listed in the mascot gallery page in the program with art as the winner.

This was for last year's contest any way :3

Last year we had the regular Kumori girl as our mascot and Ms. BurkoTheBeerMan @ deviant art won the cover contest for the brochure.

By less urgent do you mean that it will be needed sooner than the deadline that was posted for last year? Becuase i really want to enter, but it would be nice to know when you need them by roughly =P

Yeah there is one for this year as well.  Although i believe its been said that they are unsure of whether you will get a table in the artists' alley or not this year if you win.  Or that's what ive been lead to believe xD;;

Yep, artist alley will not be part of the prize this year.

Rules are the same for program front contest, this contest is one entry per person unlike the mascot contest and jpg format please.

Voting will begin <edit> June 1st.

Email completed entries to Kumori_girl@yahoo.com

<Edit>
Artist alley has space left but we are still uncertain about being able to offer a table this year for the prize.

So, when entering the contest, you want us to send in a .jpg file, and send you the .tiff if we win? Or do you want the .tiff off the bat?

Personally, I'd rather send you a preview image in .jpg format.

And just so that I have this straight--this is for the cover contest, deadline May 30th, 1 entry per person, email submissions to Kumori_girl@yahoo.com, and the .tiff file needs to be 8x11, 300 dpi, and CYMK color?

Streight on, you got it.

I'd like the submissions in jpg for preview, if you win I will request the .tiff  8*11 and 300 dpi. our box just can't take all those .tiff's and I don't want to sacrifice quality for quantity :)

Okay, and just making the sure, the cover does NOT have to include or center around the newly chosen mascot... or does it?

It would be nice to have our mascot on the front but its not nessisary. The cover is after all a totally seprate contest.

Oooh!  Is there a page I could go to with the rules?  Hmmm.... July eh?  Nice!  

Well, if I get some time between then with work, our manga part (which you are all invited to), my other two internships and getting ready for the con, yes!  I will enter.  I'll put something together, hopefully intime.  

Curious: Is traditional art accepted?  I use Copics and don't like using digital media for my work.  I just dont feel comfortable using it.

Actually I have a scanner and I can send it at a CMYK format to one of the admins?  I will look again to make me not look like a dumb blond.... who just got off work about 30 minutes ago.  *tired.... must.... eat.... chicken rice bowl....*

But thanks!  I'll try to make it to the meeting but this month's looking pretty full.  I have a manga party to plan for and a possible inker who might speek.   He's got some idea's and tips for helping young artists.  Hehehehe.

Quick question, Are you guys looking for a full cover page or do you guys want to add text and stuff that would be on the cover?

For example i was thinking of putting the logo on mine and writing the date of Kumoricon... Should I just leave that out and submit the artwork only?

Ah!  Great, I thought so.   I don't see how text could be added right now to my design so that saved me some time.  But there is enough room for text on mine... just not now.  Gotta finish it.  I hope to complete it this weekend.  Wow!  I can't beleive how fast this took me to get this far.  I'm in my coloring phrase.  *gonk*

Okay, then what kind of text are you guys expecting? So far I just have just the standard "Kumoricon September 2-4th".... is that okay? and do we need to give you the font we used if you need to add text?

Just wondering so I can get everything right before I submit my entry.

If we decide to include the new mascot in our entry can we draw her, or do we HAVE to use the original image?

I'm pretty sure we can draw her considering we don't have to use her at all...at least, that's what I did...draw her I mean...
