Hey guys and girls,

This competition includes the chance to win amazing prizes, as well as getting YOUR art/prose on display at AVCon!
There are three art categories (original art, anime fanart, and videogame fanart) for you to enter and show your artistic side, as well as a fan fiction category and a haiku category for those who like to write.

So enter now, and see your work on display at AVCon 2013!

Rules and entry forms can be found here!

Can't wait to see your fantastic artworks!
