Submissions received for ChiiKaku 01 – 2 

Yep. I’ve finally gained enough courage to go ahead with ChiiKaku! It took weeks of preparation and a lot of help from Atvrcr, but here it is ready to go! What is ChiiKaku you ask? ChiiKaku is our version of a drawing competition. You may know it better as “Atv x Oni” which is what Atvrcr and I called it for preliminary test purposes.

Now, “Atv x Oni” and ChiiKaku have lots of similarities, but also some differences, so I’d just like to establish the major rules here since this is the first official ChiiKaku.

In ChiiKaku, the main goal is for you, the artist, to submit a drawing that follows all of the criteria for that particular competition. These criteria are most usually the keywords. ChiiKaku is all about the keywords(themes). For every competition, an amount of keywords will be revealed at the start of the competition. Each of the keywords must be incorporated into the drawing in some way. For instance, if one of the keywords is ribbon, then a ribbon should be incorporated into your drawing. If one or more keywords are not incorporated into the drawing, then your drawing will not be accepted.

The deadline. The deadline is there more to give people who want to enter the free time to do so. If we have the deadline over a number of days instead of a number of hours like in Atv x Oni, it will hopefully give more people more chances to get their drawings done.

Submissions should be sent to the Atv-Oni-Ota e-mail before the deadline. Our e-mail is Submissions will not be accepted after the deadline. Please include “ChiiKaku” or “atv-oni-ota” in the e-mail header. If something to identify the e-mail is not present, odds are high that it will be ignored.

After the deadline is over, a new post will be made featuring the candidate drawings in anonymous fashion. There will then be a voting period that will run for a number of days. After the polls close, the winner is decided and he or she will forever be preserved in the ChiiKaku Winner’s Gallery.

So that’s really it for the rules. I’m sure I forgot something, but that’s why we have the About ChiKaku page. Go check out that page for more information about ChiiKaku.

Alrighty, last but not least, I have a favor for you! Since this is the first ChiiKaku, it’s not really known. Let’s work together to make ChiiKaku big. Stick a banner on your site; we’ll link back to you too, so it’s a win win situation! Tell your friends or stick a small miniscule link in your forum signatures. If not for me, then do it for the lolis.
