Senmei Revolution! 2014 Fanart Contest!

Updated June 15, 2014: Please make sure to read the rules again. We accidentally posted the rules for the 2013 contest instead of the 2014 due to it’s similarity. Below is the final rules for the 2014 Fanart Contest! We apologize for the inconvenience it might have caused.

A new year always brings new style and Senmei loves style so she’s decided to hold yet another fanart contest! Draw AniRevo’s Senmei in her original clothing and depict her as awesome! There is no specific theme for this year’s contest so you can get creative with the situations you put her in!

The contest will consist of 2 phases, 1st: jury selection, 2nd: public vote. The Jury will consist of the Director of Marketing and other AR staff and they will base their selections on the following criteria: Creativity, Technical Execution, and Vision. Points will be deducted if there is a huge deviation from the mascot design. The amount of jury selections will depend on the number of fan art submissions.

The winner for the 2013 Senmei fanart contest, Doomfest (Softmode) will also be a guest judge as part of the jury scoring phase!

Jury scoring will account for 70% of the final score and Public voting will account for 30%. Final scores will be posted two days after the voting period!
(This is to prevent the contest from becoming a popularity contest)
