Some love it, some hate it; some play with it creating snowmen, others do everything to get rid of it; some see it all year long and some can only dream about it.
Because of how many different emotions we connect with snow and how many uses it has it's a perfect theme for the promised fan art contest!
Every entry should revolve around the "snow" theme. The more original you are, the better!
The work must be a Fan Art / Fan Fiction and it should be submitted into the Fan Art category.
The work must be a new piece created specifically for this contest (make sure to link back to this journal in your artist's comments).
We won't accept re-colours or traces of originals (no coloured comic scans or recoloured official art)
One entry per person.
All mediums accepted!
We would kindly ask the Fan Fiction entries to be shorts up to 5000 words.
No mature content, please!
Prize donors can take part in the contest, but not the judges.
