Hey,

Tono_Fyr wrote:Well, I looked over the rules, but I have a question still. Does the artwork HAVE to be anime, or can it be non-anime, as well?

Oooooo, that is a good question. I had assumed that the artwork would be anime-related, but you do bring up a good point that it is not actually explicitly stated in the rules. For this month, I will keep the loophole open, so the artwork can be anything. If this becomes a problem, a rule may be added in future months so that there are separate categories of the contest or only anime-related artwork is eligible for prizes or something like that.

Thanks again and have fun!! ^_^

Phade.

I'm a little bit confused so all you have to do is put your artwork on the outside of the envolope not the inside,and send it?

You can also include a donation on the inside right?

I know I may sound like I have a bundle of questions right now I'm just kinda confused.

And if you do send in some artwork,can you create your own anime charecter,or do you have to base it on a specific anime?and do you have to color it?

*stupid question*-_-'

Hey,

Yup, you got it right. Just to recap, here's the general process for creating an entry:

1. Get a regular standard letter-sized (or smaller) envelope.
2. Put some artwork on the outside of the envelope (draw, paint, crayon, etc). For this month, the artwork subject can be anything you want.
3. Put a donation in the envelope with your site username. (optional step, but greatly encouraged)
4. Mail the envelope without putting the envelope in anouther envelope.

I hope that helps.

Phade.

Won't artwork on the outside of an envelope run the risk of being damaged if not completely ruined while traveling through the postal system?

Best way to deal with that problem is to mail that envelope in a bigger plain envelope. And not to use macaroni and glitter. :P

Don't censor my art! :x
Where does it say what media we are restricted to? :?

Of course, I mean this in jest, but you know how some people are. If it's not specified, they may be dumb enough to try it.

Anyone remember when Nintendo Power did this? At least I think it was Nintendo Power... ah, nostalgia.

...yes, I'm serious about the nostalgia and in no way am trying to be snarky about 'OMG THIS IDEA HAS BEEN DONE BEFORE'. I think it's a welcome change of pace from the done-to-death banner contest, and it should be interesting to see what people come up with.

Hey Shadow_Leaper,

The envelope needs to be properly addressed and stamped. How you handle that is up to you and is one of the challenges of envelope art. :-)

Does it actually have to be an envelope, or can it (like the Wired Return to Sender Contest) be anything the USPS will accept?
