A lot of people have been suggesting art contests with drawing and stuff (and I am sure there are many amazing artists lurking around in these forums) But how about we have a fun, less serious art contest that the people who are not very good at drawing can enter to and have fun with too using MS Paint (Inspired from your amazing profile pic ) .

So obviously the rules would have to be you have to use MS Paint to make it! And perhaps you could have themes every week like horror, comedy, action etc. and you would have to draw a picture related to the theme! Or alternatively maybe there could be a screenshot from a scene from an anime or drama and we would have to replicate it using Paint! (That could be fun!) And then winners could be picked based on which was the funniest, silliest, most creative, best artistically etc.

Well that is just my idea anyway. Feel free to adapt it in anyway you want! :3

They would make themselves into an anime character lol. They would take a pic of themselves and do whatever they want to make their face anime like. Something like this (I used myself as an example)



Oh! I see!

This could be an interesting contest in the future! I'll definitely consider this! Thanks!


In my old school (japanese inspired school, so not a normal school, i was in the party comittee and the event arranging team/comittee and one of our events we did at a party (my idea lol) was something along the way of this.
Except when people came to buy alcohol we made them pull a note out of a hat (we only had a military hat at that point) and on that note there be an expression written on it. Since some were interested in anime and some werent, we ended up writing/ drawing anime expressions on some of the notes and people had to do what the note said/did , so we had stuff written like , scream, sad, happy, kawaii, tsundere and so on, then we would take pictures of that expression while they hold up a note!

There could an event like that here, for example the person holding the contest/event would give a word, like .. Crazy, glutton and so on, and whatever theme/word it is you'd have to take a pic of yourself of friends doing exact that and then, either the mods could decide or the forum people could vote for the winner ...

Did any of that make sense.. I feel i wrote it a bit confusing ><

I don't know if suggested already, and I'm not going through the whole thread and read what's up.

But, how about "Let's Draw Contest-Hime Contest"? That'd be fun to see.

Sorry, everyone!!! I've decided to let these pile up so I can address these all at once :)!



I'll have to check what's up with this. I think there's a lot of interest in contests concerning OP and ED theme songs that it's worth seeing if there's something we can do with this without stumbling into some copyright issues! I'll get back to this, I promise!!!



I've thanked you already for posting this, but yes, I do agree that MS Paint contest can be super fun! It also levels the playing field a bit because not everyone has those expensive programs to draw in!!! But there are some free and legal alternatives that people can use as well! I do want to have people exercise their creativity!!! Without giving away too much, I have something in the works where we can make sure that the drawings are totally original in subject...



*has been working hard!*



I'm a little confused but I think I get the gist of this! I'm not sure if people feel comfortable in taking pictures of themselves, but I'd like to see how we can tweak this without doing that. Do you have any ideas?



Drawing a new avatar has been brought up, but not to the effect of creating a character for me!!! However, we won't worry about this quite yet...





Do you think having shipping costs or like a discount is something that people would be interested in? I didn't realize that this might be something someone would like to have as a prize! I'll bring it up and see if there's something we could do about this!!!

Thank you all for your continued support and interest! I promise I read these and discuss them with the staff!!!

I'm a little confused but I think I get the gist of this! I'm not sure if people feel comfortable in taking pictures of themselves, but I'd like to see how we can tweak this without doing that. Do you have any ideas?



Well there could be a section for people with no problems doing selfies, a section for ... lets say paint, fan written novels/doujinshi (or however thats spelled) and call the event .. for example, *Read the mood* and the rules would basically be you give a theme...
so for example you Paint themed read the mood and the contestants would have touse the program paint and you give them a word (theme) for how you want that picture to be.

example :
Read the Mood
This one is going to be in paint, so the contestants will have to make a picture in the size of xxxxxxxxx - xxxxxxxx with a theme given by the host of the event (in this case Hime) and the winner will be announcedin xxxx weeks/days/months and so on.
The submission can be pmed to a mod or posted in the conests thread, (depends on if it's winner by forum votes or chosen by the forum mods)

The mood of the contests is Hatred!

So that means people would have to make a paint photo with theme of hatred or something like that. i dont know if that made more sense

Theres also the opportunity of a detective game of some sort.
the host of the game in this case hime, will take some pictures of anime characters and put numbers on them and hide them around on the forums, so for example it would be the first post of some random thread on the front page of some forum. so it would be like, 10-20 pictures with a number between 1-20 (depending on how many pictures there are) and the contestants will have to look through the forum to find these pictures, and to prolong the event you could say like, 2-4 pictures a day and theres 1 week to find them all. pm the number and who the character on that number is ..
so for example,
1 - Uzumaki Naruto
2 - Natsu Dragneel.

of course the characters chosen would have to be from fairly popular series so eventhough people dont know who the character is they still know from what anime it is and can look it up like that.
the answers will be pm'ed to the game/event host and the winner will be picked randomly or something like that.

i hope that made sense somehow.... ^^''

You could describe a scene and the closest to the original picture wins.

hello there! I am quite new at this... really.. i swear.. I never adventured myself past my profile, a few CR buddies and some groups which I help with the graphics Mod and of course anime watching... So i came here by browsing around and I thought hey this Forum looks interesting...
I've read so many ideas for contest and all but to tell you the truth, I do know most anime out there and character's names are not on my pryority to remember..and I am sure a lot of members are the same as myself...
So I suggest if you do decide on the next contest ideas, please I hope it is something we can all participate in.. as the old saying goes... the more the merrier... (I hope I spell that right )
anyway, for prizes I think membership is awsome.. I was blessed with this cool gift from a just amazing member not very long ago... never I had imagine being a premium member and having access to some "sugoi" pass advantages.. So yes I suggest for all to be able to join a contest and have opportunity to win a free 30 days or more membership gift.
The next idea of gift is what I read earlier on this forum is a dvd set or movie... but something people can actually choose within a large selection of new items.
talking about new items.. it would be awsome as well if we could win japanese anime items like figurines, key chains, favorite anime t-shirt, ect...
Well I hope I could also be of help in deciding what would be cool for CR to giveaway...
( not that a trip to some paradise island with a large anime new 2013 collections to watch for 30 days would be nice as a giveaway but I keep that fantasy dream to myself...LMAO.... )

Oh gosh!!! I am so sorry!!! I have been doing a million things at once!!! I've been trying to get ready for a couple of "big" contests I've got planned in the next month or two that I didn't realize how much time has passed between this last scavenger hunt! Please bear with me for a little bit longer everyone!

For now, I think we'll go with a "smaller" contest until I've gotten everything I've needed for the big reveal... I promise! I promise~!



Please look forward to it! And don't forget! The "smaller" contests always count for something in the long run.. eheheh...

Thanks! I know this particular thread is a "graveyard".... seems like there's just too many ideas that has already been suggested!!! But that's okay, there's a lot to work with in here!!! So far I've been trying to come up with stuff with the help of the moderators! I definitely refer to these if I'm thinking of an idea and they certainly give a basis for other contests held on the site!

So it's not in vain!

The poster contest will be running for awhile.. so we'll be showing the rest of them for the remainder the month! Keep an eye out for those reveal dates.. :)

And thank you about the icon!!! I got a haircut...
