    guess it’s for Japan only huh?

    1. Kirsten Miller

      It isn’t. I’ve participated before. Even won an award in the Festa some years ago.

    Can people from outside Japan participate? I’m thinking of entering the scribble category.

    1. Kirsten Miller

      Check the answer I gave to vyrhn. You don’t have to be in Japan to participate.

    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?

    1. Kirsten Miller

      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.

        Alright, thanks Floofy!

    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?

    1. Kirsten Miller

      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.
