~ Arawaka Appreciation Fan Art Contest! ~

Hello board members! July has been designated Arakawa Appreciation Month here at the FMA board! So to kick things off, our FMA Image Gallery section of our board (affectionally known as the Gallery by many users) and FMA Fanart forum are jointly hosting FullMetal Fan Art Contest during the month of July! The winners will be announced sometime after the closing of the contest by the end of the month.

1. General "Arakawa Appreciation Month" Fanart Contest category

Rules and Guidelines

1. Fan art must be from any FullMetal Alchemist series, whether it be from FMA manga, FMA:Brotherhood anme or FMA1 anme


2. NO SPOILERS! I cannot stress enough the fact that we cannot have spoilers posted onto the site while the anime is still going as well as the ending of the manga at hand. If you have questions as to whether your art is considered a spoiler, please ask Chiyo by PM, and we can tell you its a spoiler image or not.


3. Art can be of your own style or that of Arakawa!


4. The medium used is your choice, whether it be Black & White or colored, hand drawn or digitally created, etc., but MUST be your own creation.


5. Please submit your entry by: *Also see the entry reminder here (Tombow's Reminder post below)

1.) posting your piece on this thread. Please do NOT use the the link to your art page on art account site such as DeviantArt. You MUST post ACTUAL art file of your entering fanart.

2.) then also upload your artwork to July 2010 Arakawa Appreciation Fanart Contest section of our FMA Image Gallery.

* If you have not submitted your Fanart to our Gallery before, here is How to submit images to the Gallery, and if you are still not comfortable with this or have any questions, please ask Chiyo by PM, and we'll be happy to assist you! smile.gif


6. Once art pieces have been posted on this thread, they will be updated on the first post of the thread so that people can see all the entries without having to go through ALL of the pages... The pieces will be in link form using the name of the member who has created the piece.
Your uploaded fanart to the Gallery will not show up immediately, but they will be displayed when the next time Gallery moderator comes around.


7. You can make as many entries as you wish, but each entry must be submitted separately, and also number of entries made by one member will not influence the judging for the winners. biggrin.gif


Judging
After the closing of the contest, we we will conduct a brief poll (votes will be open to all members) to narrow down the field, then the board will choose winners among those.


PRIZES:

General Prize
Winners' artworks will be displayed in the Gallery and on "July 2010 Hiromu Arakawa Appreciation Month Fanart Contest Album" (to be compiled and displayed later on this thread) and they will be featured in our Board Announcement & News forum.

Your artworks can use, any FMA characters from any FMA series, as well as the depiction of Arakawa-cow figure, but NO SPOILER CONTENT is allowed.

But what if --(oh I'm so stupid, but I have to ask ;_;)-- what if I have a great idea (I do), but it's a spoiler for the last chapter?

:wob:
Is there really no way to have it sent to Arakawa with the other letters/fanart? I can draw something else for the contests!

<Reminder>

*There are Two (2) step you need to do to enter this contest, one on this thread, and one in the Gallery section of our board. smile.gif

1. When posting your entry here, as part 1 of the entry process...

When you are posting your entry to the contest on this thread, please do not enter it as the link to your art page on the site such as DeviantArt.
Instead, please post the actual image, or if you have your art file on your computer you can upload it to our board (this is SEPARATE from uploading your art file to our Gallery in order to enter the contest) and post that as an "attachment" to your post (then, a thumbnail image of the pic will be added to your post.) ...for "how to make an attachment to your post" please read below. ^^

If you want to post the pic of your art as an "attachment", while making your post, look underneath your reply post composing box, where it says Attachment Editor on the left side and Choose on the right side.
Click on that Choose button, then choose your art file on your computer, and then click UPLOAD on the right.
That's all it takes to upload your art file from your computer, and add that as an attachment to your post. smile.gif
(Again, this is SEPARATE form uploading to our Gallery. smile.gif)


-------

2. Uploading your entry in the Galley, as part 2 of the entry process...

Go to July 2010 Arakawa Appreciation Fanart Contest section of our Gallery, then click on NEW IMAGE at the top, then enter the title of your fanart at the top where it says Caption, then click on Choose and when you get to your pic file on your computer click on Post Image at the bottom.
After you hit Post Image button at the bottom and uploaded your art to our Gallery, your uploaded fanart will NOT show up immediately in the Gallery, and meantime you do not need to keep uploading. ^^ After you hit Post Image button at the bottom, please sit back, relax, and maybe enjoy looking around in our Gallery. ^^ Your entry will be displayed in the Gallery by our Gallery moderator when she comes around later. smile.gif

(This post is time limited, and will be removed later on. ^^)
<Special Board Announcement>

News Flash!!!

We are announcing the contest prizes for the "Thank you, Arakawa!" Fanart contest!!!

Up till now, the 1st, 2nd, & 3rd prizes for our "Thank you, Arakawa!" Fanart contest (jointly hosted by the FMA Image Gallery and the Fanart forum of our board) have been a mystery, but no more!! We are unveiling the 1st, 2nd, & 3rd prizes for the contest!!

Here are the prizes:

1st prize: 1 copy of Shounen GanGan magazine with the series final chapter of FMA manga (Yes, THE final chapter of FMA!!) along with the original bonus gift, "the series completion memorial digital clock."

(the following is the pic of the actual copy to be given away, except the face of "memorial clock" is kept "mystery" ^^)


Disclosure: Please note that the copy is already opened and hence in "previously owned" state, but please rest assured that it is in very good condition. ^^

2nd prize: FMA pencil case that was a bonus gift for the July issue of Shounen GanGan magazine.

3rd prize: Fullmetal Alchemist wrist band and FMA budge set that was a bonus gift for the November issue of Shounen GanGan magazine.


Here is what you need to do for the chance to win one of these prizes!!

1. Go and read July 2010 Arawaka Appreciation Fan Art Contest details.

2. Create your original fanart showing your "thank you" to FMA, or it's author, Hiromu Arakawa.
If you'd like, you can use any FMA characters from any FMA series (FMA-1, FMA:Brotherhood, FMA manga) for your fanart, as well as your depiction of Arakawa-cow figure.

3. Your fanart MUST directly show your thank-you to FMA and/or Arakawa-sensei.

4. However, no spoiler content for the FMA chapter 108 is allowed (it's because we'll have the board wide public poll as part of the judging of the winners for the contest, while many of FMA fans, including those in Japan, have not had a chance to read the final chapter of FMA manga yet. ^^) If you are not sure whether your fanart would be considered as "chapter 108 spoiler," then please send PM to Chiyo or ScarMySoul and ask. ^^

5. Enter the contest, by posting your entry on July 2010 Arawaka Appreciation Fan Art Contest thread, and also upload the image to July 2010 Arakawa Appreciation Fanart Contest section of our Gallery by Saturday, July 31, 2010, 11:59 PM (on your time zone)

(The contest committee will keep the thread open till Monday, just in case ^^)


---

Are you interested? Good, then get started!!
You have only 1 week to come up with your "thank you, FMA/Arakawa!" Fanart!! biggrin.gif

Can I register a complaint about this?

It seems a little unfair to name this a 'fan art' contest when some of us cannot draw for beans and would really like a chance at winning the Gangan issue...



Can't it be a general 'fan work' contest instead?

....Can't it be a general 'fan work' contest instead?

Hi Kitchan, the contest staff in charge may not be able to be here for the next few days, so I will try to answer that as best as I can. ^^

Like some others I also can't draw, so.. I hear you! XD And, for this contest, I think the contest staff will try to be as inclusive as possible, and ready to make exceptions on case by case bases. For example, if you check DSender's entry, that one is not a drawing, but it was accepted since it was own creation showing love for Arakawa-sensei nonetheless. And, I think if your entry is similarly unique creation of your own, and likely to be going along with the theme of the contest, it may be accepted even if your entry is not the drawing but other form of fanworks. ^^

Or, you can try your best with your drawing.... please keep in mind that, if I'm correct, what they are looking for may not necessarily be how pretty or how well drawn the art is for this category, but rather, I think they are looking for a member sincerely showing his/her love and appreciation for FMA and/or Arakawa-sensei in his/her art, since that is the main theme of this special category. ^^
If you have more specific questions, since the contest staff maybe unavailable for a few days, please feel free to send me PM. ^^
