The contest deadline has been extended until December 1, 2006 12am EST.

Introduction

Unbeknownst to most members, Minitokyo now has an official mascot, which has not yet been officially published or unveiled. The unveiling is delayed because the mascot currently lacks a background.

This contest, therefore, aims to harness the creative powers of you, the Minitokyo artist, to design a background which will showcase our new mascot. The Minitokyo staff asks that all interested members join this contest so that we can have the most beautiful mascot for our community.

Contest Information

The stock image of our mascot is located here. Please note that this picture is copyrighted to Minitokyo. However, after the submission deadline of this contest members may use this image as a scan for the creation of wallpapers.

There are a few guidelines for submissions:

All submissions must be at least 200 DPI, preferably 300.
1) The minimum size of the background design is 6.5 x 15.2 inches (the same as the stock image).
2) Because the mascot is for printing rather than web purposes, members should not rely on pixel art.
3) The artwork must feature the Minitokyo name.
4) Entries must be saved in JPEG or PNG24 format. All contestants must also retain the original Photoshop document (PSD) file for the verification of authenticity and for the final selection of winners.
Additional:
5) It is allowed, and actually encouraged to enlarge the over-all size of the canvas to make it more square. Do not enlarge the scan (obviously), but the over-all image can be larger than the one you download. For example, if using Photoshop then use the Photoshop 'Resize Canvas' feature rather than the 'Resize Image' feature.

Contest Deadlines
Contestants are to sent their entries via attachment to mascotcontest at minitokyo dot net. All submissions must be received by December 1, 2006 12am EST.

[edit]If the above address does not work please send your entry to: MTContests@gmail.com - we will receive your entry and it will still count.[/edit]

Winners and Prizes

After the submission deadline, the Minitokyo staff will select the winning submissions. Depending the number and quality of submissions, there may be more than one winner.

Winners will have their design printed on Minitokyo paraphernalia (i.e. T-shirts, mugs, posters, calenders, and other Cafepress items). Winners will receive one item of their choice for free. In addition, the winning design(s) will be featured on the front page.

Second:
-1 DVD/Artbook of choice with a max combined price of $20
-free swag

Good luck to everyone who's entering the contest! Make the prettiest and eye-catching bg you can think of! It should be a good chance to prove your skills and try something new for once! =D

If you are frustrated with the download speed of the PSD file given above, this is a mirror (which I have created) which may or not be faster. You will be taken to another page where you have to click the link shown to download the file.

I'd better get paid for this. lol

Click to download (ZIP file, 7.1Mb)
Click to download (RAR file, 9.2Mb)
Click to download (PSD file, 17.7Mb)

Please tell me if there is a problem with this. I have set the folder private but to my knowledge, if does not matter if you have the link.

@PinkPrincessLacus:
mascotcontest@minitokyo.net is an email address. You send it via email attachment.

@animanga:
Can your computer handle PSD? I can unzip the file and upload it. Alternatively, is .rar file okay? Because, without the zip, it's over 17Mb. @_@

@enuasahng, Thanks for telling me that, I'll go and edit my post now *hehe*. :D

I'd better get something for doing this. xD
I'm uploading the PSD (17.7Mb). Download it at your own pain. lol
It'll be put up as soon as it has been uploaded.

Btw, EP, just to clarify things (for myself), since the size you've mentioned is only a minimum, we can be flexible with the general shape of the bg right?

Sounds like a cool idea. ^_^ With this dial up though, I can't download any of the files...it says it'll take over an hour. T_T I guess I'll just have to wait and see it when it's finished. :) Good luck to everyone. :)
