Only a few months left till the AniMatsuri 2019 festival and our jolly mascots Aki, Sousuke, and Wilhelm are traveling towards Dorpat Conference Centre – but their paths cross with a merry myriad of good and not so good yōkai, Japanese mythological beings. This is the theme for the year’s AniMatsuri art competition: “Aki, Sousuke, and Wilhelm in mythological Japan”! Will they meet the trickster zashiki-warashi or the malevolent kuchisake-onna? Release your creativity and put it on paper!

You can submit up to 2 artworks in either A4 format or .png format – both traditional and digital entries are accepted. The deadline for all entries is September 13, 2019 at 23:59 (GMT+3).
