1x Grand Prize
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:
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.
7. The judges decisions are final. Complaints may be entertained but will be done so at the individual judge's prerogative and will have no effect on the results.
