You get what you pay for.

I don't think there is anything wrong for asking for free work. I just know that many professional illustrators, myself included, are too busy worried about actually making a living to spend time giving away our time and effort to a for-profit company with hopes that it MIGHT lead to future employment. You would think that a company that makes most of its money off of the creativity of others would be willing to pay for it themselves at times...

"...and to edit it as necessary." I don't like the sound of that. :/

Why do this when you get nothing out of it? You're not recognized, you have no prizes and "your' work will eventually be edited despite the time and resources you invested in making it..... What you'll be doing is actually giving them the idea. Then they'll work on it. (Doesn't that signal a contractual agreement or partnership of some sort?)
CrunchyRoll isn't that tiny of an entity.....

Your idea is plastered all over the place and you get nothing except the knowledge that you gave an organization their branding which helps them gain money.

If you're happy with that then whatever I guess...

as a artist myself i wouldn't do this because there are other competitions you can participate in that have some sort of instinctive for the winner. Then as for a actual mascot that represents a company and this is what they will use to get their name out and what people will see and say oh yeah crunchy roll. That is like saying the person that made mario or sonic the hedgehog and give those artist no compensation for their time and effort to create such work. For anyone that would like to say something negative about this idea to think about their choice in words because i am a art student and am going to college and i can honestly say there would be some things i would do for free for people and independent projects but knowing this is a company that is doing just fine i find it as using your community for free work when you have more then enough money to at least offer a membership free for a year to the winner. AT THE VERY LEAST!

The main reason why i feel this way is that i am going to a 4 year school and work sleeplessly some nights on my art and to master my craft not to mention i have to eat and pay bills so if i were to even think about this as something i would want to spend my hours in my day at , I would like to be compensated just a little bit. i mean they give out posters and all sorts of cool shit all the time for no reason then they have a competitions for art and no reward... not legit at crunchy roll. Show some respect to your community that supports what you do and remember they are the ones allowing you to have a job in the first place. So when asking them to do something for you remember you must give something back.

also sorry for the negative response it is just the way i feel as a member sense the beginning of this website and paying for it and as a artist.

Keep up the good work translating and offer a free 1 year membership or possible job offer for future work that could be paid and you may get a better response from your community. Just saying.

Deadline is closing in. I wonder if they're going to add a prize and give some more details about what size etc. they want since judging from these replies there aren't a whole lot of entries... Though I guess they could just choose Delinquent's entry or if there are some good entries not shown here.

I'll make an entry myself the second there is a chance of winning even a one year subscription.

Seriously, the deadline is horrible when they're expecting people to work for free with no chance of winning a prize :/

Don't be blind by the idea that just 'having your art shown on the website' is already good enough fame! It is not!
This is the same as allowing art thieves taking and making false claims on your work without your permission. If Crunchy Roll has better respects for the artist; they should at least offer a subscription or a reward for working hard on making a mascot which will be a symbol of this site. Mascot creation (if you want it done properly) there must be a contract deal for it and future advertisement banners.

And 'Freelance' artists still get paid for their commissions; it is just a small sign of gratitude. It's very sad what little respect official companies like CR, has for potential artists helping their site. As an artist who had gone through hours of little sleep; working on banner art and advertisements; this contest is like a slap in the face; for those efforts.

It's worse than when Nike took the idea of their mascot from a young artist and only paid her a measly amount.

It is indeed a pretty ludicrous deadline, and they don't really seem to be taking this contest too seriously, considering it isn't featured on the front page any more and there is a lack of a price.
All of this will definitely be a limiter on the quality of the work that is submitted.

Even so, it is what it is, people stop complaining, man... even though there isn't a price, I'd be more than happy to have a character featured on the site, even if it doesn't bring me fame or if I weren't even credited for it I'd just be happy to have people see a character that I've designed, and on a large site as Crunchyroll, that is quite a few peeps.

And of course they would have to have the rights to use the character and to edit it as necessary to be able to use it in banners pamphlets or whatever, and they can't use the same drawing submitted again and again either so they'd probably need to have someone draw it in different poses and stuff as well. So that is pretty much a given.
