  1. For the Scribble Contest category – can it be colored, or should it be in black and white?

    Also, can the comments be in English, or should I just use Google translate and hope it’s readable?

    • I think the scribble category can be anything that’s not fully finished artwork. You can even take a picture of a doodle on a sheet of paper if you really wanted, it sounds like. I don’t see why you can’t have something colored that way, though…

      If you want to do something very finished, then you’d enter the Illustration category.

  2. For the Illustration Contest:
    Is the theme open? Or does it have to be related to the game (Zero no Kiseki/ Ao no kiseki) ?
    And can one person participate each category?

    • This is Zero-Ao only, and I think you can enter multiple categories. At least, there wasn’t anything that prevented anyone from entering in multiple in the previous contests.
