This is kinda sad. Trying to save money anywhere... If you want to let others do your work then at least give something in return.

Prizes nope not a big deal.
Opportunity for future work with crunchyroll... IDK its clearly not even stated which is somewhat of a big deal.
Receiving credit for your work. Nope not stated which is a really big deal
Can you use this picture in your portfolio or just submit it on Deviant Art just to show what you did. Nope not clearly stated which is a huge deal.

i think it'd be a very good idea to at least make it clear that the winner of the contest will be able to get credit and or use their work in their portfolio if they wanted to use it for another job.

being able to say hey guys look what i made and being able to back it up im sure would be enough for a whole lot of us ... but we dont know if you can xD

You are summing up exactly how I feel about this. Yeah winning a prize isn't necessarily everything but being able to put it in your portfolio as experiecne is a HUGE deal. But the contest is so vague, and the edit as neccessary is the part that really has me concerned.

I don't get why people are upset at this. I mean you don't get paid for fanart and people still do it all the time. It's because you love the series and want people to see your work and enjoy it. If you love crunchyroll and want people to enjoy your work what is the harm in making a mascot? can't wait to see everyones work.


NM see above why there are some problems with this. lol

Hey guys,

We are looking for new mascots to represent our future banner ads and would like your help. If you are an aspiring artist, we want you to create a mascot that would be a great representation of Crunchyroll. The best ones will be chosen to appear in our future ads. Your artwork needs to be original and cannot represent anything that's currently licensed.

Please submit all entries to contest@crunchyroll.com and let the creativity begin!

Deadline: Monday, March 19th.

*By submitting your original artwork, you are giving us the rights to use your entry in all print, electronic, and broadcast media, and to edit it as necessary.



You should clarify this a bit more, as too if the winner can credit them selves as an artist for crunchyroll on their resume/portfolio. Prizes aren't really needed I think that's prize enough.


What really urks me though is the fact that no one can view the submitted artwork, I think you should make a new thread, and only allow users to post up their submission in one post, any other posts without submissions are spam. This way, even though someone might now win, they can still say oh hey look, I entered this cool competition or Also, Crunchyroll should list their top 10 submission (or 3 or 5 or what ever number of good pieces you get) so that way we could say the same, cause if your not in the top listings for art, then why bother lowering their art by surrounding it by people who are doing it for fun.

For all of you complaining about a lack of a prize, exposure as an artist is a pretty bit prize. Professional artists usually do not have a 9-5 job., unless they are working for a major studio (comic or cartoon). And most artists are freelance which means you get jobs by getting exposure to the world at large.

You may not think its much to have your character be the mascot for CR, but this is an international community here as well as the staff having an ear/eye in Japan (from the looks of things).

So I will think of a character and email it. Getting it put on the site will be a good enough prize for me. :)


As someone who has worked with and alongside artists on DeviantArt, both professional and amateur, I can guarantee you that NONE of them would ever consider this contest without any form of monetary compensation. Crunchyroll's community exposure is mostly fan based to start with; so the possibility of a person getting more work from other large companies through this contest is actually very slim. If they were to offer monetary compensation in the form of royalties (in case the image is used on merchandise) as well as a small up-front payment ($50-$100) then they might get a better response as well as higher quality entries.
