Draw your faves for a chance at cash, goods, and jobs!
Ever wanted a chance to show your fan art to the Shonen Jump staff? They're ready to see it -- and there could be a cash prize in it!
The Jump Character Arrange Design Grand Prix welcomes artists of all styles and skill levels to present Shonen Jump with their personal interpretations of the mag's characters. Any character at all is fine, provided they appear within the pages of teh magazone. Professional and amateur artists are welcome to enter, and any art style is welcome.
Two major prizes are up for grabs. The Grand Prize nets the winner 500,000 yen, plus a piece of art from a currently serialized artist. There's also an Excellence Prize of 100,000 yen.
Not only that... winners may be called upon later to do artwork for future Shonen Jump promotions!
Entries are open now until May 31.
