    I personally feel like - if someone is going to repeat their artwork onto another contest, that it should automatically be disqualified.
    Specially if this contest is both NA-only and involves another being all regions. Though this is my opinion, people need or should do different pieces(and that's what i did) for the NA-Only, I did a Christmas-theme. For all regions I did Valentine's day-theme.

    Well thank you! ♥ @MizukiHayama traditional art is all I CAN do, if you put a submission in I hope best wishes on you as well ♥
    Even if I don't win, it was incredibly fun doing these.

    I'll go for digital ^^. And yes, mostly I am excited about trying the piece itself, what pose shall I do, what should I add in it, it just fills me with determination *o*!
    So yes, it will be fun <3.
    Thank you also!

    secondly, gachas? really. Might just be me but, thats kind of a strange prize to receive for winning a contest. afterall the Gachas give no guarantee that you get anything good. yet people in NA can win really cool and even exclusive things!

    atleast your trying to make an effort for global players but i still find it extreemely unfair. atleast NA players are guaranteed something spiffy, global people have a few tickets to gamble for free and likely not get anything worth their effort of winning....

    They give out gacha as a contest prize all the time. If someone doesn't think it's worth the effort, they won't bother. Simple as that. Not everybody thinks the NA exclusive prizes are all that cool or worth the effort, either.

    Still don't think NA users should be allowed to enter the same picture twice, tho. That's the only thing I'd find unfair, personally.
    There was a time where physical rewards from contests didnt excluede european people!
    Thats why im so stubborn about this!
    Aswell, if you win wouldnt you rather have a guaranteed item? it could be from a gacha, etc, but something guaranteed to get would seem like a better prize then a gacha, wich is unlikely to give you something good.

    I gues if gachas been the rewards forawhile, but its physical guaranteed one of "exclusive items" versus some gachas wich may not even give you anything good.
    But whatever. Im not joining it, this is still unfair... I'll just be glad i participated in the days physical items were send to you regardless if you lived in NA or not.

    I can't WAIT to see your piece! ♥ When I was doing the valentine's day one, i was gonna do valentine's mixed with a bit of Yandere. Since my character has a bit of a crazy side(Persona LMAO).
    But I didn't know how it'd work so i just went with her more "cute" and "innocent" side. If you happen to have a Persona with your character, if you'd like you can include me in the piece c: make her more scary looking at you or something(idk) lol but this is just me being like "if you want more characters in it, i'll happily let you include me" xD to help give you some kind of idea.

    Ooo, I will consider it ^^. At the moment I'm mostly going for my chara with my anju gem idea, cuz I love that slugger, it's too cute. But not really anything to go from there QwQ. Also don't have a persona for my Mabi chara, only 4 other main charas: Mizuki, Zuki, Miki and Mofu --which are all derived from Mizuki of course. Mofu was created as a pun- it's an abbreviation to Mountain of feathers which was given for my deviant art, so that for a while people would not know who i was (family and friends, wanted a clean start xD at the time)
    The name mountain of feathers is a rough translation of Mizuki's name Hayama being written with 2 kanjis:
    羽- Ha which translates to feather and 山 which is mountain THEREFORE the name.
    Hopefully I will be able to post a piece by the monday to come seeing as I have 4days off *n*. MUAHAHAHAHHA

    (Fun fact: The anime "EF- A tale of memories features a girl named Hayama Mizuki which resembles my chara, having 2 ponytails and blonde hair. I took the name by someone on youtube once mentioning "I sound more like a Mizuki" and Hayama due to my once love for Akita Hayama of Kodomo no Omocha).

    That was too long and unnecessary xD.

    Thank you for your feedback. We will look into having a guaranteed item for future contests. As for the days where prizes could be sent out to European players, our legal team handles the rules for contests. Unfortunately, laws do change. This is the compromise we made to include all players from all regions. It's your choice if you want to participate or not but I do hope you at least understand why the contest was made this way.

    What do you mean about the NA people o3o?
    And yes, I do like seeing people's art a bunch, especially them drawing their chara which I can only assume means a bunch to them, as my chara does to me ^^.

    That they do something weird and win dubble prizes. And that the other regions have no chance to win . but only United States and Canada can win them.
    Like i said before , it's kinda mean that they can enter both contests with same drawing.
    (Even tho its same contest but different prizes, tho 1 is for United States and Canada only and the other one for all peeps. So they have like dubble the chance to win :c )

    Since the theme of the art is pretty vague, I suggest adding that all entries have to be created during the time of the contest if it has not already been stated. I'm sure some people will see the theme and toss some art they had done previously and it would still fit the guidelines.

    I actually agree with this. Since it'd be the same as "using the same art over and over" 1.)it doesn't show your hard work in it. 2.)it's not fair, specially if the art won before or in the past. 3.)in case people forget that it has won in the past, may end up picking it again.

    And this is why i did my recent artworks. Despite not having dates on them, they were VERY recent the minute i discovered about the contests.
