Laika Studios and DeviantArt came together to challenge you to illustrate Kubo overcoming an obstacle in the Kubo and the Two Strings Story Within Contest, and the winners are in! We sent the 25 imaginative semi-finalists to the Laika Studios team, who then reviewed the pieces that best represented Kubo facing a difficult challenge—whether literal or figurative. The three winners above have been picked for their illustration of emotion, style, and use of Kubo’s story. The winners will receive fantastic prizing, ranging from Kubo-themed Nikes to a limited edition Kubo figurine!

All of our Semi-Finalists have won a 3-Month Core Membership, 1,000 DeviantArt Points, a copy of Kubo & The Two Strings on Blu-ray, and Art of Kubo book!

Congratulations, and thank you to everyone who entered!

Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask, but I have a question for :icongo: about the affidavit of eligibility and liability release. Would that be emailed to the winners or physically mailed to us along with the prizes? And if so is there a date for when that happens? I live in a neighborhood where sometimes people steal my mail around the holidays (ugh) so I just want to be home for it just in case.
