Thank you to everyone who submitted entries to our Design Contests as part of this year's MAL Bunkasai. We are very excited to announce the winners!

Contest #1: About Me Template/Theme

Main Prize Winner:Holiday Themes Winners:Check them out!
The Autumn themes will be available soon. Dusk Pearl and the winter themes will follow after.

Contest #2: List Design/Theme

New Templates:New Themes:Check them out!
These designs will all be available soon.

Contest #3: MAL Emoji Contest

Emoji:The winning emoji will be put together into a commemorative MAL Bunkasai emoji pack to be used within clubs on MAL.
Check them out!

While more suitable for stickers than emoji, we've also decided to pick up the 5 Shiba inu designs by @LRConkdor for future use. Perhaps for a new list design? Discord stickers? We're not sure yet, but let us know if you think of something! They were too reminiscent of MAL to not select them.

Congratulations to all of our winners! We hope to see you again next time.

Update Oct 26
Dusk pearl is now available in Standard themes with both a dark and light version!

Congrats to all the winners!

I really liked Dusk Pearl since it brings a different design!
It would be really fun if once added it allows us to change the image/colors there *wink wink*

The List designs were fun as always.
Sasuga Vale! Vale FTW!! xD

Also new emojis on the clubs will be interesting. I do am a bit worried about the size and how that will look, for some of them... but yeah. Hoping it will make most of us use the clubs more often.

Also yeah!! A lot of them would be fun to have on the discord. As both, sticker and emoji ♥

Some of these are really pretty and some are really cute! And others are downright cool! The choice of text colors for a lot of these are really great! Like holy moly, I would have never thought to use the colors for Autumn Drinks by Shishio-kun but they actually go really well with the theme and for some reason I didn't expect that. Or like I really like Cherry Blossom by sriraqa too! And Dusk Pearl by akibourei is so pretty! And gosh I love Nature Walk by Kittac! These are all nice though and super congratulations to the winners! So many good eyes for design here.

And all the emojis are super cute! I love them all! Too bad we won't be able to spam the forums with any of the emojis. :p It's for the best. Can't wait to see them in action!

Congrats again and good work, everyone!

Astonishing work everyone! The About Me templates will definitely be put to great use by many, the Blackout list theme is simply breathtaking and I'll probably switch to that :D
Also very fun emoji there, looking forward to the usage in clubs ^^

Congrats to everyone! As someone with no artistic sense, I really like some of the awarded designs. Winner or not, just submitting is commendable of its own. ^_^

My AVG antivirus blocked me joining the vrchat. I suspect it was a false positive as I was downloading from steam but there seemed a major disconnected between steam and the AV software AVG I got. Would be nice if the communicate with each other so when I try download the club the av dont quarintee it.
New ain't always the answer t' everything. Some things best not change, or be changed.

Wow! I actually got five of my submissions in! kinda? Ummm... I hadn't recieved an email or notification, and I had just scrolled through 16 finalized designs on the winners' page. So imagine my surprise when I scrolled a little and made eye contact with my doggos~ I wanted to type out a longer acceptance speech, but I predictably stalled out on it...
