Update!: Yep! I’m giving away a Y-shirt Akira plushie strap and other prizes this year.

Sneak peak of some of the entries I received :D Viewers choice poll will be open for voting after all entries have been submitted!

General guidelines:

  1. The illustration should have a “LalaParadise” theme. Based on your interpretation of the word :) Please feel free to let your imagination fly!
  2. Original male characters allowed but the illustration must also have at least -one- other existing male character, from any anime, manga, games, drama cd, etc, I’ve written about at my blog.
  3. If you have an original character, please give a short introduction of who he is when you send in your entry.
  4. If you’re thinking of drawing pairings or multiple characters, it can be any combination of characters BL or non-BL. Cross-overs are ok too.
  5. The characters don’t necessarily have to be love-love mode. Crack and comedy is ok. Simply posing is fine as well.
  6. Coloured entries preferred but B/W ok too
  7. NO 18+ entries this time round. Maybe next time :P
  8. Multiple entries allowed. But they must be visually different from one another in terms of layout, etc.
  9. I’ll collect all the entries then post them up for voting. Ponytale’s Top 3 picks + Viewer’s Choice Award.
  10. I may add more prizes based on the number of entries I receive :D
  11. Each illustration will be credited and linked back to your blog and/or url of your choice.

Where to Submit your art/Technical specs:

  1. The illustration should be at least 2480 x 3508 (vertical or horizontal), about A4 size so that it is big enough for me to make them into wallpapers.
  2. If you’re drawing on paper, please scan the picture at 300 dpi.
  3. Drawing and/colouring with software like Adobe Photoshop and/or traditional media like pencil/pen are all ok.
  4. Please save the final file as a TIF file and zip it up.
  5. Please email your entries as attachment or download link to contest@lalaparadise.com
  6. Indicate: Your name/nickname, Email, Url to link to.
  7. Please also feel free to send me your questions about the contest if you have any.

Last day of submission: 31 May 2012 (I hope the date doesn’t clash with your exams ^^;;)

Prizes include: Plushie, artbook and other BL/Bishie goodies from Nitro+Chiral, Lucky Dog1, Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi, Brave10, Kuroshitsuji, Viewfinder, etc.
