Art Contest for Con-G 2013 Now Open!!
Original artwork to be used on our graphic advertising – Program booklet, Buttons, Posters and other items. Contest entries may also be used on our website and in our convention advertising. All artwork submitted to the contest must feature our mascot, Kon.
Kon is a young Japanese style dragon that enjoys all aspects of geek culture. He’s green with a grey underside and has a purple mane and tail with tufts of purple on his elbows, heels, and his chin. He has three toes on each foot, two small horns and green expressive ears and a large tooth on either side that sticks out. The overall impression of Kon is a friendly, fun loving little dragon.
All artwork should be full colour with clean lines and images should be print ready. You may include Con-G’s logo and year in your entry, but it is not required. You can submit two versions, one with the year and one without. Feel free to include your artist’s mark or signature in the artwork, but try to keep it small so it doesn’t take away from the image. You can create your artwork however you chose. Totally by hand art is acceptable as well as computer generated or scanned and coloured. If you create your entry by hand, please ensure to scan it at a high quality.
The contest is open to everyone, both amateur and professional artists. There is no limit to how many entries can be submitted, but must be submitted by individual artists (no collaborations).
Prizes Grand Prize – The Winner will receive a free Artist Alley Pass for Con-G 2014. (This includes the 3 day weekend membership and space in the artist alley). And Your artwork displayed on the cover of our Season Six booklet.
Runner Up – The runner up winner will receive a free weekend pass for Con-G 2014
Young Artist (age 14 or under) – The winner will receive a free weekend pass for Con-G 2014 for themselves and a parent or guardian.
The Grand Prize winner will be decided by the Con-G Staff. All decisions are final. We had some amazing entries last year and I can’t wait to see more 🙂
