Coffy Creative Challenge sponsored by Saito College

Posted Image

Prizes
1x Grand Prize
RM1,000

4x Prize
RM500

Introduction
It's about time that we give Coffy, our main mascot, a new look! Comic Fiesta, with the support from Saito College, are proud to hold a character design competition for our mascots (well, mascot that is) for the first time ever!

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to redesign Coffy, with a theme based on a specific type of coffee (Coffy)! e.g. Latte, Macchiato, Espresso, Double Espresso, etc. (For your inspiration, here's Wiki's full list of Coffee Beverages ;D) Interpret your chosen beverage and reflect its uniqueness in your design in the form of BOTH her costume and personality~! (e.g iced coffee may be Coffy in winter costume!)

The winning design will be the official costume for Coffy this year and if your design is the one selected you stand to win RM1000 in prizes! Not only that, four other winning designs will be selected and each stand to win RM500 worth of consolation prizes! XD

Here are the Guidelines to follow:

Guidelines
1. There are no age/race/nationality limits to participation.
2. Designs must be themed based on a specific coffee (Coffy), e.g. Latte, Macchiato, Espresso, Double Espresso, etc. (For your inspiration, here's Wiki's full list of Coffee Beverages ;D)
3. Character designs must be SFW (safe for work). Neither birthday suits NOR tattoos (alone) are considered “costumes”, and though
arguable in terms of “character”, does not fulfill the entire needs of this competition.
4. Participants may send in more than one submission, but only one will be considered for the final prize.
5. Submissions must be sent in by 12am (+8.00GMT), 23rd of November 2012. Any submissions sent after that will be promptly ignored.
6. The results will be announced by end of November.

I have a few questions here...
1. Does my artwork have to be confined to Coffy's original personality & quirks? Or can I create a whole new personality for her?
2. IF it happens that I won a prize but am unable to attend the prize-giving ceremony, can I ask someone else as my representative to receive the award?

No it doesn't. You can submit along with your entry an idea/write-up of Coffy's new character/personality to go with the design. =)

2. IF it happens that I won a prize but am unable to attend the prize-giving ceremony, can I ask someone else as my representative to receive the award?

Yes, yes you may. Once you've confirmed that you've won, a representative can be arranged in your place to pick up your prize. =)

I've also got a few questions.

1. When submitting multiple entries, can it be sent together in one email?
2. When naming multiple entries (whether they are submitted together or separately), do they have to have the same file name? Or can I just add a number at the end to differentiate between entries?
3. Also just to clarify, the 3 coloured views of the costume design has to fit in one A4 size file, right? (i.e. not in three A4 size files)

Ok! 8D

1. When submitting multiple entries, can it be sent together in one email?

Yes if they're all your entries. Bear in mind though that you'll still only be eligible for ONE prize.
If you're sending in for your friends though, it would be preferable to send in through their respective emails (to ease tracking and management).

2. When naming multiple entries (whether they are submitted together or separately), do they have to have the same file name? Or can I just add a number at the end to differentiate between entries?

Numbering them would help a lot. Thank you. =D

3. Also just to clarify, the 3 coloured views of the costume design has to fit in one A4 size file, right? (i.e. not in three A4 size files)

You're free to make your choice on that. The idea is that we want to be able to see your idea in the best way you want it to be presented. If you have a lot of details, it might be a good idea to use multiple files to allow you more space for detailing and the likes. =)

Yes Yuzki, that's perfectly acceptable. Just remember to scan at 300dpi and follow the submission and artwork guidelines. =)

Hello, I have a few questions.
Do we have to keep Coffy's hair colour and style? How about her eye colours and her cat ears? If we don't, she might look like a totally different character...
This competition says it is a costume contest but we are allowed to redesign her personality?
It's quite confusing, what exactly is the objective of this competition?

Ok!

Technically, you don't. But it is preferable to have her still recognizably "Coffy". She can be a completely difference character. =)

This competition says it is a costume contest but we are allowed to redesign her personality?
It's quite confusing, what exactly is the objective of this competition?

Although the first line does refer to "costume", the ultimate point of this Creative Challenge is to reinvent Coffy based on a coffee. So yes, you are allowed to redesign her personality. =)


For ease of future reference, I'll change the first line to avoid any more similar confusions.

There are no problems with the preferred way of drawing. For ease of future reference, the post will be edited to reflect it properly. =)

That's a very good question!

Short answer is "yes".

To be more precise...
- The copyright of the design will be shared between its designer and Comic Fiesta @ SAYS Youth Society. Credits will be given to the design's original creator whenever the design is used by Comic Fiesta @ SAYS Youth Society.
- The designer will still maintain free personal use of the design, however, may not transfer this right to anyone else (neither individual nor party) without the prior consent of Comic Fiesta @ SAYS Youth Society.
- Profits from any merchandising, however, will be reserved strictly for the propagation and promotion of the Comic Fiesta event only.

Pardon Me I'm new Here
just need to ask a question or two

1.It's a total makeover for Coffy right? Anything that abides with the rules goes?
2.As A4 paper size goes tall...are we allowed to have the A4 paper on it's wider side?
(Insert long speech about the importance of humanity and it's beauty here.)

Certainly. =)

1.It's a total makeover for Coffy right? Anything that abides with the rules goes?

Well, without asking you to give too much away, the simple answer would be "yes". We are looking for ideas that are themed around a "type of coffee" though, so as long as you can work around that concept, you're free to design as you please.

2.As A4 paper size goes tall...are we allowed to have the A4 paper on it's wider side?

Yes. Portrait or Landscape, we're fine with it. The main concern is that the design should be detailed and high-res enough for us to see everything that you're providing us.

Thank You for answering

and sorry to bother but:

this:
"A write-up detailing the concept/personality/story behind the design (including the name of the coffee the design is inspired from)."

and this:
"Artists details (name, nickname/alias, email, homepage).
must be written on the paper or via email (if emailed)?

If you're emailing it, you can just attach all the relevant information & write-ups into the email in the form of a document. =)

Definitely. If you refer to the link we've provided as a guide, it also includes details of specific parts of the design. Basically anything that helps further the understanding and "feel" of your design. =)


etto~~ my english not so good~

No worries! 8D

Is it mean that we design the character by ourself~
or still need to follow the shape of the advertisement? *the solid red color*

Yes, it does mean you are to design the character by yourself, and no, you don't have to follow the red shape in the poster. =)

We want your coffee-Coffy to have a nice personality. Give her a feeling of a coffee you think is interesting and show/tell us why it is interesting~ =D

1. Can the artwork be one by a group or must be a single participant?
2. After re-designing the character, should I add text to describe about the costume or just send the picrure only?

Can! Ask away!! 8D


1. Can the artwork be one by a group or must be a single participant?

Yes, it can be done by a group. However, I feel it's important for me to mention that even if it's done by a group, you'll only win ONE prize (so the prize will have to be shared amongst you and your group members).

2. After re-designing the character, should I add text to describe about the costume or just send the picrure only?

You *can* send in your design without a text body, BUT a small text body describing her would be preferred. It would help put us in the right frame of mind for your design and draw our attention to things that we may not otherwise be aware of. =)

Your replies are most appreciated , ty ><

You're welcomed! Happy drawing~~ 8D
