NARUTO Shippuden Design Contest

About The Contest

ABOUT THE CONTEST

For over 13 years, the ongoing manga saga of NARUTO has delighted anime and action comics fans the world over. WeLoveFine is extremely proud to bring you the official NARUTO Shippuden Design Contest, in which YOU, the adventure-loving artists and designers who have helped keep NARUTO one of the best series of all time, can help to create beautiful, official merchandise that captures the spirit of these fan-favorite characters! There is an opportunity not only to have your design made into officially licensed NARUTO t-shirts, but one very lucky and talented designer will land an incredible opportunity - the chance to come to Los Angeles with a fully paid trip to attend Anime Expo 2013! There are also excellent Judges' Pick awards to be chosen by the creators behind NARUTO themselves (The creator Masashi Kishimoto is one of the judges!), and more awesome prizes. So get out your design tools, set your imaginations free and show us what you've got. Go ninja all over this one, we can't wait to see your entries. Good luck!

 

ABOUT OUR GUEST JUDGES

Masashi Kishimoto (Creator)
Author/artist Masashi Kishimoto was born in 1974 in rural Okayama Prefecture, Japan. After spending time in art college, he won the Hop Step Award for new manga artists with his manga Karakuri (Mechanism). Kishimoto decided to base his next story on traditional Japanese culture. His first version of NARUTO, drawn in 1997, was a one-shot story about fox spirits; his final version, which debuted in Weekly Shonen Jump in 1999, quickly became the most popular ninja manga in Japan.

 

Joe Otsuki (Editor of NARUTO manga)
Born May 27, 1987 (age 25)
Hobbies: Soccer, Mahjong
Aspiration: To release a hit title like NARUTO!

 

 

 

Hayato Date (Animation Director)
Born in 1962, Hayato Date made his break through his work on the hit anime Saiyuki.   He has directed both the NARUTO television series and NARUTO the Movie: Ninja Clash in the Land of Snow; and played the role of director and storyboard writer for the short NARUTO: Hidden Leaf Village Grand Sports Festival.

 

 

Hot Topic: It all started in 1988. A ton of teen retail accessory stores filled the malls, but there wasn't a cool music-inspired accessory store for both guys and girls. Then came Hot Topic. As 1990 rolled around, adding apparel seemed like a no-brainer. What better way than to add the ultimate music fan essential - band tees. Imagine how our customers flipped when they were able to get Bauhaus, The Cure, TSOL, and Depeche Mode T-shirts at Hot Topic. Within a year, we had about 50 different band titles, along with rock-inspired clothing lines like Lip Service and Serious. As we expanded, we discovered that customers were equally drawn to the underground cartoon, cult movie, and comic book scenes. It was a unique culture fans could call their own, so we brought the world of South Park, Care Bears, Superman, SpongeBob and tons of other pop icons into our Hot Topic stores.
