Winners Announced!

Start Time: 6th April | End Time: 14th May 8PM CET
Countdown Clock


"One rainy day in April, a young Annie steps out and opens their umbrella.
They inhale the fresh, cold air and sigh in content.
Making their way down the path, they absentmindedly twirl their umbrella in their hands.
What could the umbrella they are holding, which is as alluring as they are, look like?”

For this event, you must create an umbrella based on an Annie's blessing and design,
drawing together the way they dress and the spirits that carry them through life!

When creating the post for your entry,
do not forget to include which Annie your umbrella is based on! kaomoji set 1 3/19
It's time to showcase your innovative spirit, originality is key!

When submitting our entries is it alright if I also draw my Annie with the umbrella? I'll also make sure there's a sta.sh file in the description with the umbrella alone, I just prefer to submit finished art to my gallery over just an umbrella haha-- But if it has to be just the umbrella submitted I can do that too!

As long as the umbrella is clearly visible then it is oki as that is what it is being judged on!  2018YupiANanEmote022 by YupiANan

Wanted to share my Entry to "Entry Folder". But there wasn't "Contribute to this folder". So, i contributed to general gallery. I thought that it will be added to contest folder. But it appeared in "Arts of Annies". Where should i post my next umbrella?

And here's my first umbrella entry to let you know what umbrella is mine.

First of all, thank for the bases and samples of umbrellas. They'll help me much.

My questions:

As i understood, i need to choose an Annie and to draw an umbrella in style of their blessing and outfit. Should i draw only an umbrella or an annie with umbrella?

Can i add more decor to the umbrella? I mean some gems, flowers, sparkling.

Can i choose any annie from this group or it must only an annie from allowed list?

All Places have more then one prize. Does it mean that one Winner gets them all? Or there are 4 1st Place Winners, 3 2nd Place Winners and so on?

PS. 2nd Place has C My. Does it mean C Myo?

Heya!! Thank you for pointing out the spelling mistake, it should indeed stay MYO, I'll fix that up right away  2018YupiANanEmote013 by YupiANan

As for your questions!

1. You just need to draw the umbrella, no need to draw the annie

2. Absolutely you can add more decor!! Get creative!! 

3. You can choose absolutely any annie!!

4. there is only one winner for each placing! That means the winner gets all the prizes listed!!
I really hope this helped and good luck with your entry!!  2018YupiANanEmote003 by YupiANan

For the umbrellas when we draw them are we allow to design it base on the Annie's we own or in general?
CookieTeaa's avatar
Based on any annie's blessing, you dont have to own the annie  2018YupiANanEmote016 by YupiANan
