better rule descriptions such as if we can submit more than one entry. State how the contests will be judged (best drawn, cutest, most points, most likes, one that just appeals to your tastes and has nothing do with skill level.)

Yeah I'd like to see less drawing related contests as well. If anything have some other artistic mediums, like photos, sewing, food, etc.. Trivia contests would be nice or something music related.

I have another idea. What about a create your own Naruto or Hunter x Hunter character, jutsu, or nen power?

Or perhaps a Code Geass contest where we create a Geass power. This all takes creativity and knowledge of the shows, but you guys can decide what you want us to do.

I think you guys come up with good contests for good shows, so there's not much more I can say. I read that you guys have a future writing contest coming up and I can't wait

Here's some suggestions:

1. best caption
2. best short fan fiction script
3. best impersonation of a character (through voice acting, physical acting, etc.)
4. best redo (what would you have changed in the anime, why, how)

that's all i could come up with, but i think it opens up a lot of options for people who just don't like drawing

How about creating your own one page manga of that anime and have something interesting in it(not in the anime, manga or light novel)! >A<
Would you agree that can be a good contest? :3

I love your contest, i filled up my scketchbook and finally got around to messing with ink and crosshatching, not to mention giving me a reason to learn illustrator. I also like the caption contest since they provide plenty of laughs. If any improvement i would say that i really liked how for the Puelle Medoka Magica contest the winners were announced in a seperate post. As for series suggestions Medaka Box and Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere have some fun character design ( any excuse to draw pretty anime girls) and a Mecha contest would be fun.

I like the art contests, even though I rarely can think of an idea in time to participate. I do appreciate the few short story contests that you guys have had like in the Another contest. What could be fun is a live action recreation of a few minutes in a specified anime. It would be cool to see everyone messing around and anyone could do it. Plus who doesn't like getting together with friends and shooting stupid videos!!

It depends of what people want like you could do two contest and let people choose which one they would like more and do that one. Still i could be troublesome if people like both i think that's ok, maybe. Ok so there could be contests of the best kinda cosplay of their favorite character. Make food to look like anime or so. Also for the singing thing i depends of who would really try to do the contest and if they really want the prize it depends. It takes experimenting to find out. I so far like all the contest they are fun to try to do. OOOH i got something you could do a type of contest that involves people making their own video of their fav anime and do a show or music video of their favorite song i geass. Since its winter there could be a contest of snowanimes. Where you could make a snowman into an anime character, still in some states/countries there isn't snow falling or its too cold. I'm out of ideas if i get anymore or so i'll post them, not like my ideas are that interesting anyways i'm just trying to help good luck on this

and now a lurkers opinion....

i rarely log in, unless i need to, to watch a show or enter a contest, lol but as for the contests, i agree with what a bunch of people have said most of them have been heavily biased to people with artistic ability leave the rest of us, screwed

and as an older member of crunchyroll (i have a full time job) i dont realy want to waste the time watching and re-watching episodes for a single line of text or something, which is why i straight out ignore any kind of contest that requires lots of watching shows to do, (since i would rather just watch and enjoy what i have the time for)

also while a cosplay contest seems like a good idea, anyone who isnt already realy into cosplay would be even more at a disadvantage then the non-art people with the drawing contests... i personaly dont have the time or ability to do a cosplay, and certinaly not for something that would have a few week deadline...

I'm new to this, but what about a scavenger hunt? make a list and the first person to print screen all items on list wins...and wins...er...I dunno...prizes or something?!?!?

Like a month membership...
Like a Nendoroid or two...
Free passes to the next AnimeCon...
A 5 day shopping trip in Tokyo...in cosplay...

( I liked that last one...^.^)

I think more pictures of Victoria would really add to the substance in these contests
------
I actually like the current system, I don't enter usually because I'm pressed for time but it's nice to scroll through the threads and see people's awesome works.

Something I would personally like to see thrown in the rotation is maybe a "Caption this picture" contest. Of course with rules and all that, but something that's good for a laugh can't be bad right?

That's the type of contest I could see myself having time for.

A questionnaire contest about shows on Crunchyroll sounds fun.

I'm happy the recent one have not been Facebook ones (I hate those). Sometimes just a random lottery of people who sign up here (pick a name out of the hat) is good sometimes. I am not saying to have that replace the contests but sometimes we are just not interested in trying to outdo someone drawing or singing or whatnot. Just a simple "enter by this date and random lottery". Easier not to screw up and to me seems more fair. Just a thought to add to the mix.

Also and this may sound strange.. but I want to know where to get some of the prizes.. like I've been looking for where to buy the karuta cards from Chihayafuru and I still can't find where you can purchase it. :(


They are out there. Expensive as hell, but they are out there. http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Chihayafuru-Ogura-Hyakunin-Isshu-Karuta-with-CD-One-Hundred-Waka-Poems-JPN-/190768687296?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c6ab328c0

That's not .... anime... related ?

What DOES THAT MEAN.


Related to manga or J-pop obviously. Maybe he thinks you should hold a contest to see who can compose the best Vocaloid song.

I used to be apart of a judge team for a mmo game and there are endless possibilities for contests. Not all contests have to have BIG prizes either. You can do scavenger hunts, trivia, match the mod/admin with ____ and other simple stuff and just give out forum badges and say like a week free membership (you would be surprised how much people like the superfluous pretties). For the bigger contests you can do drawing, pixel art, writing, captions, cosplay, and maybe throw in a spam type event were lucky number blah blah blah wins something that way you cover everyone, the people with talent and the people who don't (like me). It is also good to be upfront about how the contest will be judged, put critera or say its what I think is pretty. It of course wont appease everyone but it cuts down on the hurt feelings.
