Anime Evolution 2009 Mascot Contest Rules and FAQ
The purpose of this contest is to find our mascot design for Anime Evolution 2009.
The winning entry will be featured on AE’s convention program book and
promotional material for AE in 2009. The winning artist will receive a several prizes
(to be determined) along with a VIP guest pass to AE 2009 along with all bragging
rights. All submissions will be displayed in the Art Gallery at the 2008 convention
for public viewing unless otherwise requested.
There will be two separate contests:
Contest #1: Judges Choice. One of the winners of the 2009 contest entry will be chosen
by the AE 2008 convention executive.
Contest #2: People’s Choice. The top entries as selected by the AE executive will be
placed on display at the Art Gallery for voting by all convention attendees.
The Peoples’ Choice winner will be announced at the 2008 convention closing
ceremonies. Cut off time for voting will be 12:00 noon on the last day of the convention.
The winning artist does not have to be in attendance. In the event of an entry winning both
contests or there is a tie vote for multiple entries, the AE convention executives retains the
option to award secondary prizes.
The Judges choice may also be announced during the 2008 closing ceremonies. However
the executives may not have time to vote during the convention. So the latest a decision
will be made will be during the convention staff meeting in Sept of 2008.
Each winner of the mascot contest will receive the following:
One VIP Pass (allowing preferred seating) at Anime Evolution 2009
½ of an Artists Alley table
An AE 2009 promotional poster of their winning design
Selected prizes as supplied by our convention sponsors (to be determined by the
date of the convention)
