Contests F.A.Q.

How does this work?
Every month you will be given a theme of what you'll have to create a Manga styled entry.

Is Fan Art or Fan Characters allowed?
I'm afraid. We do not accept Fan Art or Fan Characters in our entries. We look for original art that contrain original characters and their universes.
That means, for example, your Naruto based OC isn't eligible to enter or win.

Can we submit pre-existing works that fit the theme?
Your entry must be new and created for this contest. That means old artwords won't be accepted.

What style of art is allowed?
Digital, Traditional and Mixed Media.

So... I was wondering, the current contest has a bunch of fanart entries and even entries that were eyeballed from other artists's works. Is that eligible now or will those entries just not be considered during the voting?

I'm not admin but as I read the rules. Fan-art is not allowed so it can not win and I would recommend that if you know some works are heavily referenced/eyeballed. I would put thumbs of those works here along with original works for comparison. Or straight up send a note to Cinyu or other judge :)

Thank you, I appreciate your input, but the entries in question actually say that they are fanart etc. in the artist's comments. So I really wonder whenever something changed about the rules. Maybe I'll message the mods.

Fan art is not allowed which is why none of these drawings were selected as winner or runner ups. :)
I was voting for the lastest contest without checking if original or fan art, because they all were entries for the contest. But in the judgement they became disqualified.
