8th Translating Anniversary Celebration Event
It is once again time for my annual translation anniversary celebration event. Due to personal reasons, this might be the last time I am holding it, so be sure to participate if you get a chance.
It will be a fanart event where cash prizes are available to be won. Entries will be voted for in a poll and those who receive the top votes will win cash prizes according to their placing and the number of entries. In addition, all participants will enter a random draw where three random winners will receive cash prizes as well. For more details, please read below.
Most BL novels I have translated on this website will be eligible, including those I have dropped, but the teasers won’t be eligible. You can see a form with the list of eligible novels below. Any entries for novels not on this list won’t count, unfortunately.
The final submission date for this event is November 30th, 11:59 p.m. (GMT +10). All entries have to be submitted by this date to be considered valid. After this, there will be a voting period and the results will be announced on December 7th.
You can submit your entry using the google form below.
Fanart Event Details
This event will work similar to last year’s one. I will be holding a fanart event where you can feel free to create any artwork for any of the novels on the ‘List of Eligible Novels’ that I have linked above. It can be character fanart or fanart of a scene that has appeared in the novels.
Artists can submit more than one fanart but only one entry can win. For example, if you submit two entries and they come first and second, the second entry will be invalidated. Third place will become second place and so on.
First to third place will be decided by the reader’s votes in a poll. In addition, once it reaches 50 entries, extra prizes will be unlocked for every extra 10 entries. For example, at 60 entries, 4th place in the poll will win a prize, 70 entries will be 5th place etc. There will also be a translator’s choice of one artwork that didn’t win in the poll that will also win a cash prize.
In addition, as mentioned above, there will be cash prizes for participants. All participants will enter a random draw and three participants will be picked to win a cash prize. Please not that if someone who has already won a prize from the poll is randomly drawn then that will be invalid and another name will be picked.
1st Place – $125 USD
2nd Place – $100 USD
3rd Place – $75 USD
Translator’s Choice – $50 USD
4th Place (Unlocked at 60 entries) – $50 USD
5th Place (Unlocked at 70 entries) – $50 USD
6th Place (Unlocked at 80 entries) – $25 USD
7th Place (Unlocked at 90 entries) – $25 USD and so on.
Three randomly picked participants -$15 USD.
Any medium is acceptable, including digital art and 3D models. No explicit/NSFW fanart will be accepted. Only original work will be accepted. Entries can’t be stolen/traced and have to show some signs of effort. If I feel that an artwork doesn’t qualify, I am free to disqualify them from the competition. Any fake/meme entries won’t be included in the poll once I notice them. It should also be new artwork done for the event, that hasn’t been posted before i.e old fanart of the novel won’t be accepted.
Please note if you submit an entry, you will be agreeing to let me post your fanart on the website. If your artwork didn’t win a prize and you don’t want your work on the fanart page, please let me know.
Once again, the final submission date for this event is November 30th, 11:59 p.m. (GMT +10). All entries have to be submitted by this date to be considered valid. After this, there will be a voting period and the results will be announced on December 7th.
