    Hello! When we scan our art work on the computer, do we have to make it larger? If so, how much? Or do you have to do this if you’re the winner?

    • http://copicmarker.com/ Copic Marker

    Will you organize a similar contest for Europe too? 

    • http://copicmarker.com/ Copic Marker

      Hello! This site is run by the U.S. and Canada distributor for Copic Marker, which is why the contest is only available in those two countries. You can follow Copic Europe on Facebook to watch for their upcoming contests: http://www.facebook.com/copics

    • http://copicmarker.com/ Copic Marker

      Hi Naila! This page is run by the Copic distributor for the United States and Canada only – unfortunately we only speak English here!  We are legally restricted from shipping Copic products outside of the US & Canada, which is why other countries aren’t eligible for winning our contests. You can find the distributor for your region here: http://copic.de/ I hope that helps!

    Can you do it on 8×11 paper?

    • http://copicmarker.com/ Copic Marker

      Yes, as long as the proportions of your art are correct. The winner will be asked to resubmit an image 48” x 104.09” at 200 dpi.

  • Janette Garcia

    I know you say this is really open; but I am a paper crafter and usually use stamps on my creations. Does it have to be all original hand drawn work or can stamps be incorporated?

    • http://copicmarker.com/ Copic Marker

      Hi Janette! It depends a bit on how you’re incorporating the stamps. If you are using one stamped illustration and coloring it, the judges likely won’t consider it a unique creation. If you’re using stamps as smaller part(s) of the whole, then the piece can be considered unique. Hopefully that makes sense! 

  • Guest

    Would an image that was about 7 inches wide and 12 inches long be accepted for submission?

    I hope I win! I will pray if I have to!

  • Guest

    Hi, I’ve uploaded my picture on the form you provided, but I can’t figure out how to submit it/share it. How do I enter it in the contest?

  • Guest

    Lol, never mind, I just figured it out!……. ^^’

  • Jpopper1

    Woot, I submit my pieces! =D I hope it wins despite the scanner quality.

  • Jpopper1

    I received an email which includes a template. Do I need to re-size my image and send it again? Isn’t the contest over?

    • http://copicmarker.com/ Copic Marker

      No, you’re all set! That’s just the confirmation email, which shows everything as it was entered on the initial form (which is why it shows a link to the template, which was only for sizing guidelines – you didn’t have to use it at all). Thanks, and good luck!

    • Jpopper1

      Ah thank you. Also, I never gave in my interpretation of the piece or even my idea of “dreams”. Is that alright? Or should I send an email? (I don’t want to lose my chances!)

    • http://copicmarker.com/ Copic Marker

      Hi there! The submissions have already been sent on for judging and that wasn’t a requirement, so no worries! You were only required to state what Copic products were used, there was no need to explain your interpretation of the theme. Thanks!

    I’m kinda disappointed, I sent in my art and did not Receive a conformation e-mail :/ So I’m assuming you guys didn’t get it.

    • http://copicmarker.com/ Copic Marker

      We just tried searching for your entry via your email address, and don’t see anything :( Bummer! So sorry about that, you’re the first we’ve heard that didn’t get an email so I’m not sure what went wrong.

  • A. Elddir

    When will we find out about the next “Park Your Art” contest?

    • http://copicmarker.com/ Copic Marker

      Good question! The City of Eugene is in control of the details (we are just a sponsor), but it will likely be around the same time next year as it’s been an annual event for the past few years. Thanks!
