Hi fellow artists and fans of Osomatsu-san! It seems pixiv is having a contest for Osomatsu-san illustrations! I decided to translate some contest details. Please note that I am far from fluent in Japanese so I may have made some mistakes, but I tried to get the general idea of the contest guidelines.
Users of pixiv must agree to Application Guidelines, and if you are under 18 you must have your parents agree to these.
2. Posting Period:
The contest runs from February 4th to 29th, 2016.
3. How to Participate:
Submit an illustration/drawing to pixiv. The illustration/drawing must be related to the anime “Osomatsu-san”. When tagging your submitted drawing, please use the tag “おそ松さんイラコン” [in English, this translates to “Osomatsu-san irakon (short for illustration contest)”].
4. Posting Format:
You can post more than one illustration work, but please do not post the same work multiple times! Also, you may use any dimensions at the time of submission, but if you are chosen as a winner you must resubmit the work with the dimensions at least 2480 pixels long x 3508 pixels wide, 300 dpi. (Size may exceed but not fall short of the above dimensions.) Works will be excluded from judging if the works are not related to Osomatsu-san, not tagged with the specified tag, posted privately, posted past the post period etc.
5. Selection Process/Rewards:
Winners’ works will be shown in pixiv Zingaro (an art gallery owned by pixiv, presumably) in the Osomatsu-san Exhibition that starts on March 24, 2016. The grand prize for winning the contest in first place is, from what I can understand, original merchandise signed by the character designer, and the runners-up (second to fifth place) will receive original merchandise. However, prizes will only be shipped to addresses in Japan.
There are also some notes and disclaimers to be translated, if anyone is interested in reading them please contact me. I’m too busy to translate them if there is no demand for them xD
