 Draw our badge art! S.S. Kaizoku Con -- Grand Haven, MI's first anime convention!

1. Draw our mascot Nami with the contest's theme in mind.
**Design should not be overly complex. Please do not include background images or color. Keep background white.

**Please do not include text.

**Nami can be wearing any non-copyrighted outfit (i.e. an original that you own all rights to) or her original outfit, and be placed in any location, pose, or position on the viewing plane you'd like as long as she has her signature Captain's Hat on and is family-appropriate.

**No hentai, nudity, or sexual situations or themes are allowed.

**Nami must be alone in the image -- please do not include any copyrighted or original character in your entry. Inclusion of objects, such as our anchor for example, is fine as long as clearly identifiable as original and not belonging to any pre-existing copyrighted work. Any and all objects used in badge artwork must be interacting with Nami and not standalone in the image.

**Color is necessary in order for your submission to be valid. Please leave backgrounds plain and white.

**Mediums accepted: Traditional and digital drawings and paintings, only. Sorry, no photography or fiction is allowed for this contest.

**Please ensure title of deviation is "Kaizoku Con Contest Entry" so we can track them.

3. Either LINK your entry on our Facebook page, or NOTE our DA group with your entry and facebook name.


**Please ensure artwork is done to fit on a 300 resolution 3" x 4" sized card, landscape orientation. In pixels that equates to 900 x 1200. Nami character must not be less than 1/4 of entire design/page.

**For entry purposes, please save a SMALLER COPY (25% of the original or less) to be uploaded to DeviantART.

**For integrity purposes, any images uploaded at full size will be disqualified. This is to prevent false, counterfeit, and tampered badges from being used for our convention.

**Grand Prize Winner will be asked for the large file for printing purposes.


**Winners will be chosen based on artistic merit, interpretation of theme, and successful representation of Kaizoku Con as determined by our Con Chair.
