AMKE 2020: Fantastic Fanart Contest Accepting Entries

Now for something a little different, very new, and hopefully very creative! For the first time Anime Milwaukee’s Manga Library is opening up the contest floor to artists veteran and aspiring who are attending Anime Milwaukee 2020. The Fantastic Fanart Contest welcomes fanart entries from any genre of pop culture. This includes anime, manga, comics, tv shows, or anything in between.

From now until February 13th, 2020, we’ll be accepting fanart of all types in two main divisions: all ages and that is 18+ and NSFW. We will be awarding best in show to each division winner. However, entries in each division will have the opportunity to win one of our hidden categories. Prizes will be given out for winners in each division, but those winners must attend the con. Below are the rules. Good luck and Happy Drawing!
