Hard to believe we're already so far through the current anime season, isn't it? Time seems to have just flown by. Found something good to watch this season, I hope? If you haven't, now's probably the time to go through your backlogs. Why not explore some of the older anime series that are available on the big streaming sites? There's plenty of old classics out there that deserve your attention too.
Just a reminder that if you haven't already read the blog post I made about these things last year, "On submissions, approvals, and comments", you should really go do that. It includes important information regarding rules changes and updates here on AnimeShinbun. These issues can and will impact on your eligibility to win prizes. You can find the blog post at the following URL.
I'd be very interested in your feedback BTW on the current direction we're going with contests. We've seen a lot more news submissions over the past month, so I'm inclined to keep the current format of one contributor contest with more prizes for now, but what are your thoughts?
How many stories can you submit? Every news story you submit on AnimeShinbun during the month will get you 1 entry, and we'll be picking 4 winners at random from those entries. The more times you submit stories, the greater your chance to win!
Prize: 4 winners, receiving a $50 Amazon Gift Card each!
As usual with all of our contests, you'll be disqualified if you pick up a restriction of any kind during the contest period, or if it comes to our attention you've broken rules for posting and approving submissions that month (regardless of if that led to you being placed under a restriction or not). Comments with negative labels (Trolling, Off Topic, etc.), unresolved reported stories, etc, will not count to any competition.
In the interests of fairness, each entrant will only be eligible to win one prize per month. If your name comes up for multiple prizes, then we'll be awarding you the highest value one and redrawing the others.
