Original Contest Information:

What's this!? Another contest! Yes, that's right! And a new kind of contest too. We are starting our bi-monthly series based contests. And since we skipped a contest in the summer time, what better series to start with than "Free: Iwatobi Swim Club"? In this contest, contestants are requested to specifically submit shots of their Free cosplays! No other entries will be accepted.

Special Note: While the title of the contest is "Free: Iwatobi Swim Club" which refers to the first season, entries from "Free: Eternal Summer", the second season, will also be accepted for the purposes of this contest.


Series Information:

Haruka, Makoto, Nagisa, and Rin were all on a swim team as kids. However, after their last relay race of the season, Rin left the three behind to go to Australia to become an Olympic swimmer. Now in High School, Haruka, the fastest of the four, finds that Rin has returned and wants to challenge him to a race, determined to beat him this time.

Original Contest Information:

We're back! And we have a new contest starting! This March we will be starting a contest revolving around the theme of “White Day”. White Day is a Japanese holiday held on March 14th this year that is very much so like Valentine’s Day. However, in Japan, girls give chocolates to boys they like on Valentine’s Day, while on White Day the boys give chocolates and gifts to the girls they like.

This can be interpreted to be anything you want it to be. It can be taken to mean showing affection, confessing to a crush, eating chocolates until you’re stuffed, going on a date, or simply giving chocolates to someone, anything you can think of as long as it relates to “White Day”! We want you to do your best to show the theme in your photo.

Rules:

:bulletred: All photos must be submitted by March 31th.
:bulletblue: All general group submission rules apply

:spotlight-left: WELCOME TO COSPLAY SPIRIT!! :spotlight-right:

:dance: This group is for those who are passionate about cosplay and want to submit their cosplay pictures to be "Featured" through peer voting. (THIS INCLUDES COSPLAY PHOTOGRAPHERS TOO OF COURSE! ^_^) :w00t:

We want to show all levels of cosplay's best representation of the series, type of camera, photo editing, etc does not matter but we want to convey your "COSPLAY SPIRIT" through the pictures that are shown in the folders, so show us your "BEST" and your most "PASSIONATE" pictures for the series/characters!

:police: DO NOT SUBMIT TO FEATURED!! :police:
:trophy: The only way to be in the Featured is by winning the theme contests that we will be running monthly! :trophy:

FOR ALL FOLDERS AND SUBMISSIONS:

:bulletred: Only finished cosplay pictures
:bulletred: Shipping pictures are allowed, but must be appropriate for all ages
:bulletred: No works in progress
:bulletred: No walk-by con pictures
:bulletred: No blurry pictures
:bulletred: No words unless they pertain to the character/image portrayed
:bulletred: No overly dark images and
:bulletred: No prop pictures please!

If your submission is declined it was because it fell into one of above categories. Please don't feel discouraged! It's nothing personal, it's just how we hold a standard level for all entries that are accepted in order to display the best of everyone's Cosplay Spirit. We really don't like to decline, so please try to follow all of the guidelines in order to avoid that!

Types of Folders:

:bulletblue: Contest/Themed Folders:


Contests will be held monthly in which pictures can be submitted and will then voted on by members. The winner will be showcased permanently in the Featured folder. Once the entry deadline is up, a poll will go out for members to vote on the cosplay pictures and the winning picture will have a permanent spot in the Featured Folder! :party:

Please note, you only get one submission per contest, so make it count!

:bulletblue: General Series Folders:

Even if you don't want to enter a contest you can still submit to the general series folders. Members can submit what they believe to be their BEST representation of their COSPLAY SPIRIT of the series they are cosplaying from!

You may submit 3 deviations per week per folder.

Ex. You can submit 3 deviations to Karneval and 2 to Fullmetal Alchemist per week. But you can not submit 5 deviations to only Fullmetal Alchemist within a week. You can instead submit 3 deviations to Fullmetal Alchemist during the first week and the second week submit 2 more deviations to Fullmetal Alchemist. :)

Please submit images to the correct folders.

If you would like us to add another series folder please just message us and we can add it, there are so many series out there!

A question; I have a cosplay of TnC, which is originally a yaoi-game, but also adapted into anime and manga. Does it then go to general video games folder? :3

Probably best to put it in video games unless your costume is specifically from the anime/manga. Just wherever you think people would most expect to see it :)
