Doujinshi Central 2010

What is Doujinshi? It's a fan drawn and published manga; something we at ACEN are putting together with help from interested artists all around. Better yet we are also running our little Doujinshi as a contest, with excellent prizes on the line, but you should certainly hurry since you only have till February 15th at 11:59 PM CST.

So what are we looking for?

Well there are three main categories:

Cover/Splash pages. Covers are simply that, the cover page, Splash pages are full page pieces, consisting of little to no dialogue and any number of subjects: action, characters or whatever, Go crazy.

One page pieces, either 3 or 4 panels. A simple comic strip.

Extended page comics, no more than 5 pages in length. A simple narrative tale told in the format of your choice, paneled and illustrated.


The Rules.

All pieces entered in this contest must meet certain requirements:

1. Theme; all pieces must fit this year's Doujinshi theme: Create pieces portraying our mascots Jaye, Elle, and Kit in situations dealing with our theme lucky / unlucky 13.

2. NO hentai, yaoi, or yuri. No excessive violence or vulgar language. We are a family friendly convention; nothing exceeding pg-13 in nature will be accepted.

3. Cover and Splash pages must be based on ACEN's mascots: Jaye, Elle, and Kit

4. 3 to 4 panel page entries must not exceed one page and will be black and white.

5. You may only submit 5 pages. You can choose any combination of entries, five covers, one cover and four 3 or 4 panel pages, two 3 or 4 panel pages and a three page comic, ect.

6. This year's ACen's program book size is 6.75x8.5, so please plan accordingly

Prior Proper Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance & Promotes Premium Productivity
"The optimistic way to look at your own art, performance, or results when someone tells you that you're not good enough, is to think that there's still room to improve. When you believe your artwork, performance, or results are perfect, it's the end of your career."
