Long time no see, fellow Rivalshippers! How's it hangin'? Good? Good. I'm happy to hear that.
Well my friends it has been a long summer awaiting for our 300 member contest on CxJ-Fans. Though that hallmark never hit, we are standing tall at 252 members, more members than I ever could have imagined in this Rivalshipping group. So let me take a moment to say THANK YOU! to every single one of you for helping me spread the Rivalshipping that we all love so much.
Because of all of this, I have decided SCREW waiting for 300 members, I want a contest right meow! Er... right now.
Yes yes kids we're all very excited, but what is the theme and the prizes and the yada yada?
The THEME for this contest is The End of Summer. What you can take that as can be anything you want. I encourage you to bring your own connotations into it. If you need inspiration or examples, you can try out on of the following:
Back to school
Outdoor activities (camping, swimming, etc.)
Change of season from summer to autumn
And anything else you can think of! If you have questions about the theme, feel free to ask!
I submitted a new oneshot Particular Year as a special promotion for this contest. It's my take on the theme, throwing some head-canon in to taste. Normally I wouldn't submit a deviation for our contests, but this one I'm extremely pumped about. And who knows, maybe it'll help someone get some inspiration and enter in?
ENTRIES can be, as usual, fan-art, fan-fiction (prose and poetry), cosplay, claymation, pretty much anything art form you can think of as long as you can post in on deviantART, the art can be attributed to you the contestant (i.e. screenshots from the show), and it was posted specifically for this contest.
TO ENTER the contest, you can submit it into the contest folder "End of Summer Contest", which will be open to participants to submit entries. DO NOT submit in this folder if you are not submitting it as an entry.
PRIZES are, so far, as follows. If anyone wants to donate a prize for the contest, please let me know.
First place will be a dA 3-month subscription (pretty sweet, huh? )
Second place will be 20 dA points donated by YaoiMeowmaster (thanks!) and an art request
Third place will be an art request
The DUE DATE for the contest is TBD. You'll have at three weeks to prepare your entry.
If anyone has any questions, feel free to note me, comment here, on my profile, or text message me. Well, maybe not that one. If you have my number, please don't let me know that you do, that'd be kind of strange.
Thanks all! Looking forward to this contest with a very deep passion.
