Agree with this. Please change to something rarer to motivate us more. I could totally make an original song for my entry, but prizes aren’t much of a motivation. Please consider stuffs such as Yellow Ribbon, Costume Angel Ear Wing please or other stuffs we don’t see around everyday.

Your submissions must be your own :) Please refer to rule 2:

 

 

  • Make sure YOU made it! All entries must be made by the submitter specifically for the purposes of this contest. No commissioned works will be accepted.

It certainly looks like a lot of people are unhappy with the current prizes. I can switch some of them out for the ones you listed if you like.

Nope! Please refer to Rule 2 :)

Sorry, I didn't specify. Yes you may enter in more than one category, but only one entry per category per user is permitted.

Additionally, you can only win once. Hope that clears things up :)
