Contest Rules

  1. Entries must be submitted by students entering 5th–12th grade. Winners will be chosen in 3 divisions: 5th-6th, 7th-9th, 10th-12th
  2. All art must be your own, but the drawings can be of anything: a copy of your favorite character, an original character you’ve made up, or a story in comic strip form. You may get inspiration or instruction from a book, but please do not copy the images inside exactly
  3. Limit of 2 art entries per person
  4. All drawings must fit on an 8½ by 11 piece of paper. You may use any medium to create your artwork
  5. This year, bonus points will be awarded to artwork that showcases a unique world culture or mix of cultures. To do this, you may use any time period and/or place. Here’s some examples:
    • A girl in a traditional Japanese kimono
    • Naruto dressed as a German soldier during WWI
    • a boy with a beret sitting at a French cafe
    • Rukia from Bleach dressed as an American 50’s rock musician
    • Someone piloting a mecha in future 2280 Japan
    • An 1800s Native American girl chasing down a giant anime buffalo
    This element is not necessary to enter, nor to win, but it could earn you extra points
  6. All participants' entries, with consent, will be displayed on the Canton Public Library website. Note: if you are under 18, it is assumed that you have your parents' permission to have your artwork displayed online
  7. The deadline for all entries is July 31, 2011. Paper entries will be available for pick up after August 13. Last day to retrieve artwork is September 1
