#1st C.C.O. Graphic Contest!
Lasting: Nov 22nd - Dec 16th

Hey guys! How are you all? Hope you are doing fine!
We know, we know. The club hasn't been much active ever since the bbcode issue popped up D: we apologize for that, but honestly it couldnt really be helped :/ we tried to keep the usual monthly topics going tho. We hope to come back regularly active as usual when the bbcode will be finally back!
However, meanwhile, since in this period i really don't have time for this working like hell, i thought to start up this topic to give the chance to whoever of you that would like to join!
I hope you'll like this idea and that many of you will join it!

Contest Object:
{ Club's DP - aka: Display Picture }


  • Anyone can join: be it member or staffer, whoever would like to give it a try is welcome!
  • Only (1) entry per user: meaning you can't join with more than one DP.
  • The work must be your own, obviously.
  • You may use any graphic program/brush/font that you like.
  • You have to strictly follow the [Must Points] listed down here.
  • All the entries will be voted by the whole club, both members and staff. Joiners can vote too, just you can't vote for your own DP.
  • Depending on how many entries there will be, there might be also a reward for positions #2 and #3, and special mention.

Must Points:
- Size must be 275x350 px, not smaller not bigger
- The DP must contain somewhere, clearly readable, the words "Monthly Claims" + "Weekly Claims" + "Special Claims" + "C.C.O."
- Official arts only
- It must not be clearly summer themed as we are in winter now (especially refered to summer-vibe series like can be Free, Nagi no Asukara or Magi)
- It must features one or more characters of any anime/manga from the following list

Optional Points:
The following is not a must, at all, but it will make you start with 3 extra votes granted in the poll while voting.
- Having a winter theme (winter clothes and/or snow and/or leaf-less trees/typical winter elements..etc): doesnt' matter if it's graphically made and added or was in the original picture, it just needs to be winter themed! (sample)

- Extra claim/s for the brand new upcoming claim topic/s in december whose opening is on their way right after this contest and its voting will be over.
- Winning banner to testify the join and the win ♥


Now, let's free your creativity!
Post here your entry and/or questions :3

Also, for anyone participating, remember the rules state only official arts. There's some scans of the more popular series ones with money coming out late November and into December with stuff and even some Christmas campaigns for the Titan inclined fellows.
Plus it doesn't even need to be a winter theme, just not summer, which gives a lot more picture options than looking for nice winter/xmas pics.

Sorry for the late reply.. Yup, there's no problem in shortening that if you feel more comfortable with the outcoming result of the DP :3

Altho, on the other side, yeah, i'd like to point out that official arts are required in the must points tho >w<
Official art meaning: made by the serie's author himself/herself (sample) or the anime company (sample) or directly stuff from official sources ex: screenshots (sample)

As for the posting format to follow, i forgot to didn't put any, is ok to keep the one you've adopted so far, most important things to specify are: DP link, mentioned serie! As you all did <3
