Fanart Contest (with prize money)

After the big success of our editing contest, I decided to hold another competition, the first Sandra and Woo fanart contest. We have received a couple of nice drawings during the last two years (see the fanart section on our Artwork page), but I’d really like to see more interpretations of our characters by other artists. Unlike most other such contests on other (webcomic) websites, ours comes with a nice prize money for the five winners who I will pick from all contestants:

  • 1. place: $100
  • 2. place: $50
  • 3. place: $25
  • 4. place: $15
  • 5. place: $10

I’m not only looking for technical skill, but also for clever ideas. You’re free in your choice for the subject of the image as long as it’s related to our comic and its content is suitable for most minors.

Please send your image in an e-mail to which should have the subject “Fanart Contest”. You can attach the image to the e-mail or include a link to it. You must submit the image before Monday, 11 April 2011. I hope one month will be enough time for everybody who is interested in participating in the contest.

Additional information about the contest:

  • You are allowed to submit several drawings (or other types of art), but you can’t win multiple prizes, only the prize for the best drawing.
  • You are allowed, even encouraged, to post your image elsewhere on the internet as long as you’re not giving the impression that you’re the “owner” of the characters you drew.
  • If you choose to color your image, you must give the characters the same hair color as seen in the following drawings or this strip.
  • After the initial display in a blog post, the images will be put into the fanart section of our Artwork page. If you have a website which is suitable for minors, you should include a link to it in your e-mail.
  • You can sign your work, but a large, ugly watermark will significantly reduce your chance of winning anything.
  • If your image is drawn digitally it would be the best if you send it to me in its original size in a lossless format (for example TIF or PNG without reduced color depth). If your image is drawn on paper and then scanned in, you should send me a cleaned-up version of reasonable size in a lossless format. The more detailed the artwork is, the bigger the image size should be. But don’t send anything with more than 25 million pixel (5000 x 5000 pixel).
