Mascot Contest


The Mascot should reflect the 2017 theme ‘Virgin’ of Daku Con since it is first year.

Submitted art must contain no background, be full body characters, full color preferred, and should be 8.5”x11” size or larger and at least 300dip (roughly 2500×3300 pixels).

No animated formats or copyright-protected characters may be submitted; all art and characters must be original compositions.

While art can be suggestive for an 18+ audience, the art must be safe/friendly enough to share in the public (so no naughty bits, explicit scenes, etc. If you can’t walk down the street wearing a Tshirt of the art, it’s probably not a good idea to submit).

As all submissions become property of Daku Con for use in promoting our convention, website, and related activities, Artists may not post their entries online before the end of the contest for the sake of a fair and impartial contest. Any Artists found publicly defaming other Artists will have their entries removed from the contest. Daku Con reserves the right to remove any submission it deems inappropriate.

The final winning mascot will be chosen by vote of registered Daku Con staff after an initial pre-screen by the Executive board (names will be withheld for purposes of anonymity).


All Artists must submit new original entries to participate in the 2017 contest. Only one entry will be accepted from each Artist.
