Why this art competition?

This competition was brought up initially with the thought of there being many hidden, talented artists out in the world that may not have a creative outlet to express and share their work.

We would like to create an outlet for those individuals that may not know their potential, or better, they do know their worth and would like to see if they can best express their creativity.

With many high valued prizes available, we hope to incite motivation and competition within those artists to try their hand at winning.

While the prizes are a huge incentive to enter the competition,
we would also like to put out there that we are currently in search for extremely talented and motivated artists, to help provide artwork for Neon Elements.

We are looking for various types of creative styles, from fan art creation for products, to creating brand new, original characters, for the world that Neon-chan inhabits.

We hope that you are excited for this competition as much as we are.
And are looking forward to your submissions!
