CONTRIBUTOR CHALLENGES: OPEN
Is IchiUri our OTP? Do you think about it late into the night, sneaking peaks on online forums and fanpages looking for other people to talk to or finding ways to corrupt your friends into the forbidden love of IchiUri?
Well, here's a chance to become a contributor to the first IchiUri club! :3
~ Submit an entry of your best or favorite work.
~ Work must be an ORIGINAL but doesn't have to be new.
~ Tell us what IchiUri means to you in the description section of your deviation.
~ Only one entry per challenge period.
All entries will be reviewed by either Founder and/or Co-Founder. Every once in a while the submissions will be looked over and one will be chosen to become a Contributor. Winners will have their work blogged about.
Being a Contributor gives unlimited album submission access and other exclusive club decisions like contest judging capabilities and voting rights.
+ I would really love to see the IchiUri fanbase grow! And it will only happen if we all spread their love. After all, they are such a wonderful couple. Hell, even Kubo probably thinks that too and that's why we all see the little IchiUri moments all over the place: in the anime, manga AND official artwork! So let's get out there and spread the IchiUri love!
- A NOTE TO ALL MEMBERS: I've been going through all the different tabs and have changed some things around. All members (excluding admins) can submit 5 entries per day per album. So start loading up our albums with all your old IchiUri art! Also if you come across someone else's art that isn't a member, go ahead and submit it or note me the person's username and I can add it.
