    2. Hello!
      I have read the "see more" link and am interested in the competition.

      Can you please clarify whether it is required that the submission be digital artwork? Or is traditional artwork (pen, pencil) placed into the proper template acceptable?

      Also, what is meant by effect drawing? Can this be any pose?

      Thank you so much for your time!

    3. I have the same question as msxxxamillion. I prefer to draw on paper, and I don't have a printer. I'm not sure I can enter if I cannot print the sheet.

    6. What are ideas for design?

      Is it like a pinterest board? Could You please show an example?

      Story should be selfcreated, yes?

    7. Do contest entrants (and possible winners) retain the rights to the character designs they submit?

    8. The entry rules say 'Email submission with the subject line participant’s Weibo ID or twitter ID'. Does this mean you have to have one of those to be able to participate? I don't have a Weibo nor a Twitter. :/

    9. I'm also curious about the "ideas for design" section.
       
    10. Some Further Questions:

      1. I would also like to know if copyright is retained by the contestant?

      2. Is the contest winner determined by number of "likes" on twitter or by a judging committee?

      3. Will a sample be provided to further explain the template sections?

      I look forward to learning more regarding the contest. Thank you!

    11. I am having trouble downloading your template. It appears to be in low resolution. It states in the requirements:
      2. Participants are required to retain a 300DPI resolution for print production of BITMAP source files or vector files.
      Is there another template you can upload?
       
    12. This is a sample.

      The artistic expression is not limited,but contestants must use the official template.

      There is a PSD attachment below.
