INFO: Art & Writing Contest

Postby Rekka Alexiel » Tue May 06, 2014 8:33 am

The two contests to celebrate the International release of Drag-on Dragoon 3 aka Drakengard 3 are now in full swing! So get your artistic and creative mojo going and GET INVOLVED!! <3

Here are the rules and regulations specific to each contest.



ART CONTEST:

Participants:
Anyone can participate either through the Drakengard 3 / DOD3 fan page on Facebook or drakengard-3.com.

Goal:
The aim of this contest is to offer a fun and creative contest to celebrate the International release of the game, Drakengard 3.

Entries:
Art entries may be made by various mediums, whether they be drawn, painted, CG’d works of art, photographs, photo editing and splicing of existing DOD3 artwork, or even sculpted. Your theme and artistic medium of choice is entirely up to you! The key is to have fun and show your genuine love and appreciation for the series as well as the creators, developers, producers, and everyone else who made this game a reality!

* Regarding spoilers: No entries with drastically huge spoilers will be accepted. Please understand that not everyone has been able to play the original Japanese version of the game. It is still possible to create artwork given little information on the characters. Use your imagination. Be creative and create!

Deadline:
Entries must be received no later than 1:00am Wednesday, May 14th Japan time / 12:00pm Tuesday, May 13th to submit your entries. Entries received after this deadline will not be accepted.

Procedure:
Entrants must include their Full Name, User Handle/Nickname, and E-mail address. Names will be added to a list of participants. Once an entry has been completed, you may submit your entry via one of the following methods:

>> Facebook Private Message or PM me here on this message board.
>> E-mail your entry as an attachment to: contest.drakengard3 AT gmail DOT com
* Please replace the AT and DOT with the proper punctuation and no spaces!!

Please do not post a link to your entry publicly. All entries will be uploaded to the DOD3 International Release – Art Contest folder on the Facebook page simultaneously on Friday, May 16th. No personal information will be displayed during the voting process.

Participants may submit only one piece of art. The style and theme is entirely up to you. Draw what you like! I don’t think it will be an issue, but please avoid explicitly sexual themes and depictions. DOD3 is quite an adult series to begin with, which I totally understand, but I don’t believe this is the place for porn and other graphic material. Please refer to the TERMS AND CONDITIONS for further information on this.

Entries must deal with DOD3 characters. You may write in other characters from the previous games such as DOD1, DOD2, and/or Nier, but DOD3 must be the focus. Artwork with guest characters from other franchises and/or original characters will not be accepted.

Images must be received via E-mail in JPG format, no larger than 1024×786, with a file size no larger than 900KB. The artist reserves complete copyright of their original works, however; final images may be resized and/or cropped to better display on Facebook or the DOD3 Web site.

Winners and Prizes:
Winning entries will be determined by the number of LIKES a piece of art receives by other members. The top three items with the most LIKES will be awarded prizes as the following:

1st Place: DOD3 Advertisement Poster (Pink/White)
2nd Place: DOD3 First Guide Book
3rd Place: DOD3 Double-sided Poster (Zero/Mikhail and 6 Utahime Sisters)


TERMS AND CONDITIONS THAT APPLY TO BOTH THE ART AND WRITING CONTESTS:

NO PURCHASE OR PAYMENT OF ANY KIND IS NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. Odds of winning depend upon the number of eligible entries received during the Contest Period.

**Winning participants pay for shipment of their prize from Japan**

Please understand that winners must pay for EMS shipping of their item from Japan as well as a slight Paypal usage fee. If they are unwilling or unable to pay for these fees, they will forfeit their winnings to the next eligible participant. Like wise, if a participant does not respond within 7 days after the winning notice, it will forfeit their winnings.

The manager of this contest reserves the right to refuse and/or cancel an entry—winning or not—from any participant at any time for any reason.

Should a tie occur, a tie breaker round of extended voting period of the tied entries will commence to determine the winner.

The purpose of this event is to spread the Drakengard / Drag-on Dragoon / DOD love around the world! Also, congratulations to all the DOD3 staff for the International release!! We hope to see more DOD, Nier, and other new projects from you in the future!!

Should anything in these Rules and Conditions be unclear, please let me know and I will try to fix it! Thanks much and enjoy!!
