Naruto: Ninja Arena Art Contest Hosted by Anime News Network

    In celebration of Naruto: Ninja Arena coming to North America, Anime News Network will be holding an art contest! The prompt of the art contest is to draw the Naruto cast playing any kind of board game you want.

    Each entry will be judged on art and real-life feeling of the boardgaming (are the characters having fun, are they stressed, etc.). Entries must also include the Japanime Games logo somewhere in the artwork, since Japanime Games created the Naruto: Ninja Arena game. The catch, however, is that the logo must be incorporated into the art and cannot be cut and pasted.


    Here are some rules posted on the Anime News Network website:

    • Entries must be received before 7am ET March 8th, 2021;
    • Entries must be JPEG files, 1000×1200 pixels, 1MB max;
