• Phantasy Star 25th Anniversary Illustration Festival

    To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the first release in the Phantasy Star series, which took place on December 20th, 1987, Sega is having a special art event. They are calling this event the "Illustration Festival" and are asking fans to submit original, unpublished artwork covering any game in the Phantasy Star series.

    The guidelines for submission are as follows:

  • Submission period: 12/19/12 to 1/16/13
  • Art relating to any game in the Phantasy Star series
  • Works must be original, unpublished, and created by the submitter
  • Accepted format is JPEG, up to 1MB in size
  • Image dimensions must be 1280x720
  • Multiple submissions from the same person will be accepted
  • There is extra emphasis on the fact that submissions should not have appeared anywhere else (including other web sites, blogs, social networks, etc.). The selected entries from this event will be published by SEGA in February 2013. There is no mention of any prizes or awards at this time, but we'll keep you updated on any further information that comes in!

    For those looking to submit an original work, SEGA has provided a submission form on the official PSO2 JP players site. A SEGA ID is not required to participate, though the form does require an email address, artist name (or pseudonym), title, and comments.

      Guess I'm going to have to learn to draw. Seems like 99% of all contests are always just drawing art. We get maybe 1 single musical submission contest in 15+ years (orgarhythm), and even that game hardly responded at all to the submissions. No page updates, either.
      At least I was able to get the Capcom Monster Hunter one, even though that wasn't officially a musical contest.
