AnimeShinbun Christmas Creative Contest 2014

7d ago ... Our Christmas Creative Contest involves challenges of creativity rather than challenges of artistic skill. We'll be judging you primarily based on your ideas, so don't worry if you can't draw or write well, you can still score well with the judges. Submitting something so bad it's good, Santa Claus Conquers the Martians style, is a perfectly valid strategy for this competition. ;) So long as yo...

AnimeShinbun 12 Days of Christmas Trivia 2014

7d ago ... Hi everyone and welcome to our 12 Days of Christmas Competition. =) Here's how things are going to work.

AnimeShinbun October 2014 Contests

77d ago ... Hi everyone, I've had a few people who got caught up by some issues such as approving things from their own website tell me that they weren't aware of the issue, so if you haven't already read the blog post I made 2 months back, "On submissions, approvals, and comments", please do so now.

On submissions, approvals, and comments

124d ago ... Two months ago, in my regular contest blog, I posted about the issue of self-approvals, and gave some guidelines for how we would handle these. With the continuing issues around submissions and approvals over the past few months, I thought it was about time I gave everyone a bit more clarity on this and other issues for submissions and approvals that have been causing a few problems. -------...

AnimeShinbun June 2014 Update & Contests

200d ago ... Hi everyone. Usually I try to make these posts a bit lighthearted, but there's something I need to discuss with you all briefly. Last month, a few people mentioned that they were finding it took a while for their stories to get approved. Over the past month, we've been keeping a fairly close eye on story approvals to get a better sense of how long it's taking articles to go through, but a...
