As part of PSO-World.com's 5th Anniversary Event, we are holding a Fan Art/Fan Fiction contest! Help us celebrate this special occasion by creating some Fan Art/Fan Fiction and submitting it for the contest! If you place in any of the categories, you will increase your chances at winning one of the lucrative Phantasy Star Universe pre-orders in the main raffle! Read below to see the exciting categories that have been setup and what other prizes you can win!
All entries should either be related to the category for which they are being submitted. Submissions must be in by January 31. All submitted content should conform to forum rules. You are allowed to make multiple submissions, but may not submit an entry to multiple categories. Any works that are posted on PSOW (either in the Fan Works forum or appropriate Gallery) prior to the start of the contest are not eligible for submission. Also, any entries that are posted in Fan Works before the contest ends will be disqualified.
Once the submission period has ended, special galleries will be setup - one for each category. PSO-World.com users will then have the chance to vote for their favorite piece in each category. The winner for a particular category will be the piece with the largest number of votes. Once voting has finished and a winner has been determined, results will be posted on the front page.
Prizes will be handed out for the first, second, and third place winners in each category. The prizes will vary depending on where you place.
