All art submitted must meet the following requirements or it WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED for the top prizes:

  1. !!VERY IMPORTANT!! Artists MUST submit artwork that fits this template. This is a bit complicated because we need art that can be printed in large format as well as cropped down to Con Book dimensions. If you need any clarification, PLEASE contact us!
  2. Dimensions: Tabloid Size (11” x 17”) with a minimum of 300 dpi OR vectors, Portrait orientation only (No landscape). Be sure that the most important design elements fit within the borders of the provided template.

    DO: Feature at least one of the EFNW characters Front Page or Mocha Sunrise. (REQUIRED)
    DO: Incorporate iconic imagery for the Pacific Northwest or Seattle
    Examples include: Stormy/rainy weather, coffee, evergreen trees, Mt. Rainier, etc

    DO NOT: Use the Space Needle in your artwork (it is copyrighted)
    DO NOT: Use any OC other than the EFNW characters unless you have created it yourself or you have been granted explicit permission to use it in this context.
    DO NOT: Use any official or copyrighted characters. (This includes “Mane six” characters and all other characters from the show, past or present.)

    Note: OCs are only permissible if they are generic, have NO cutie mark (blank flank) and do not detract from the focus of the artwork.
