Sarumi Fest 2017 - Announcement and Rules

It’s that time of year again - Sarumi Fest time! Our 2017 event will begin in just a little over a month!

For those who are new to the event, this will be one week where we all try to post as many Sarumi/Misaru fanworks as possible. The event is centered around July the 7th, or 7/7 (the combination of their birthdays - 7/20 for Misaki and 11/7 for Saruhiko, so 7/7 for Sarumi Fest). Here you can find a list with all the entries from last year’s Sarumi Fest.

There will be a lottery with prizes like doujinshi, fanart, and more! Winners will be chosen by random, but the more posts you make, the more slots you gain, thus your chance of winning rises! Please keep an eye out for a post with more details about the available prizes closer to the start of the event!

To submit a work for Sarumi Fest 2017:

Post your fanwork on tumblr using the tag #sarumi fest 2017 during the time frame of July 7, 2017 to July 14, 2017 (inclusive).

Rules for entries:

  • All of your fanworks must be your own original stuff or scanlations/scans/editing. Reposting won’t count. If you’re not sure whether something counts as a valid fanwork, send us an ask and we’ll let you know.
  • The fanworks must be newly created for the fest, and not works that have already been posted, on tumblr or elsewhere.
  • Any fanart or comics taken from pixiv/twitter/etc for use in your entry must include a source and you must have permission from the artist to use it
  • Your fanwork must be about Yata and Fushimi, Sarumi or Misaru
  • If you do not wish to receive a message or an ask in the event that you win a prize, please provide an alternate contact method, either on your post or privately via our ask box with a reference to your entry.
  • Sarumi Fest will last from July 7 to July 14
  • Don’t forget to tag your posts with #sarumi fest 2017

We also have some fun new things this year:

  • We will have themes for each day, so please check those out and plan your entries!
  • We have prepared a special header and footer to add to the spirit of the fest - it’s not a requirement, but we encourage everyone to use them on your entry posts. More will be posted about this later!

We will be opening the sarumifest blog for submissions during the fest timeline. If you do not have a tumblr or you wish to make an anonymous entry, you can use the /submit url to make your entry.

Rules for submissions to the sarumifest blog:

  • The above rules must be followed
  • You must include a method of contact  in case you win a prize (email, twitter, line, etc)
  • Please clarify if you would like us to remove your contact info before posting your submission

Submissions will open at the start of the fest.

The goal of the event is to have fun and get some fanworks posted, to show our love for Sarumi/Misaru! There’s no obligation to participate or anything, so please don’t feel pressured if you’re busy. Hopefully we can all have a good time with this!

Please send any questions through the ask box on this blog, and reblog to spread the word if you can!

Thanks, all!
