Hey Everyone!

We love anime. You love anime. And we love that you love anime! So Crunchyroll wants to hear from YOU about how anime has changed your life!!



The anime community is passionate, diverse, and full of awesome people with great stories. Maybe anime helped you meet your best friend, got you through a rough time, or sparked an interest in a new activity!

PLUS - in the spirit of sharing, Crunchyroll will be bringing one lucky storyteller and a guest of their choice to CRUNCHYROLL EXPO 2018!!

When you submit your anime story, you’ll be entered into the international contest. That’s right - we’re bringing this contest out to 30 eligible countries! One winner and their guest will receive VIP CRX 2018 Badges, roundtrip airfare, and accommodations at Crunchyroll Expo 2018!! We know it will be hard to choose just one winner, so five runners-up will be awarded a one year of Crunchyroll Premium Membership.


HOW TO ENTER

Ready to get started?? Make sure to read all the official rules before submitting ~

Check out our story prompts below and select one that you feel the most passionate about! You can submit your story starting June 1, 2018 at 12:01 am Pacific Time.

Write down how anime has changed your life in 500 words or less.

E-mail your story to [email protected] by 11:59 pm Pacific Time on June 15, 2018!

Questions:

How has anime changed your life?
Has anime helped you realize something about yourself, or saved your life? Be as broad or as specific as you want!

How did your love for anime impact your life in a positive way?
Job opportunities, creating friendships/relationships, career/education choices, anything goes!

Do you share your love of anime with your family? Does your family love anime?
Explain how you share the love of anime with your family - whether it's attending events together, cosplaying, or just watching your favorite shows together. Alternatively, if your family doesn't support your love of anime, how has that impacted your life and to what degree?

What's anime fandom like in your country?
How do you combine your love of anime with your country’s culture? Tell us about your unique con experiences, fan gatherings, or other ways you share your love of anime with those around you.

How has using something you've learned from anime helped you in the real world?
This can be anything from a lesson you've learned that you were able to apply to your life, or something that has helped you through a difficult time.

But it's open to a lot more countries than previous contests, that's commendable.

So a few questions:
When I send the email, do I just type my story into the text box or can I make a separate document and attach it?
Also, I know we have to give our names of course, but is there any other information we should put in the email?

Same. I can't join too because I'm not in the country list. It's kinda sad.

I'm Malaysian btw. I would love to see it extended to other countries. Sighs.

Guess I'll just have to go to crunchyroll expo on my own next time on my own when I can afford it. Sighs

I left my role as moderator at the end of April so I can't edit other people's posts anymore. (I am still a moderator for the Premium Members group, but my privileges don't extend beyond that group.)

So I only have to answer one of the questions and do I have to include it in my story which one I have chosen?

So with the round trip, does that mean we get a flight home as well? Also, what major airports can we be dropped off at to be flown over if we win?

I'm still really confused about what should be in the email. Would they like a word .doc or just typed in the email? What information should we include in the email? Name?

there is a severe lack of interest in this post. not that some people are not interested but, for the amount of comments so far, it doesn't seem like there's quite enough people getting involved.

@zombi3h3art Some people believe no one won various recent contests and sweepstakes, the biggest disappointment being last year's Passport to Japan Sweepstakes, which never had a winner announced.
/forumtopic-1003889/passport-to-japan-sweepstakes?pg=14#57157797

That said, I'm sure people are entering and not commenting, and there's probably a visibility issue with the vast majority of CR users being unaware of the contest, as were these who missed the previous writing invitational: /forumtopic-1016861/call-for-writers?pg=2

There are more comments on the article announcement.

So do I have to provide my name and age? I read the official rules, but they aren't really clear about what information I have to provide about myself when I submit my story.

"My Anime Story SWEEPSTAKES"??

All the work we're putting into these, and you're just drawing entries at random?

Either that, or we're saving our stories for the contest....Write your OWN!
Still, just leaves more for those of us who did enter. Seems like the only contests I've ever won only had three entrants.

I assumed name (always helps), address and e-mail, but....that was a guess.

Kind of hard to "Read complete information before submitting entry", when the info isn't, y'know, complete.

Guess I should have asked first, so if you did want age included, well, there ya go, too late, I'm out.

The info under the spoiler tag in the OP states:


The winners will be selected by the Sponsor’s judges (the “Judges”) The Judges will score each entry based on content, clarity of expression, and creativity.


So this doesn't seem to be a selection at random.
