PIAPRO and the development team for SEGA’s upcoming Project MMT (provisional title) game are holding a new contest to solicit artwork to be included in the game. Winners, in addition to having their art included, will also receive prizes from SEGA as well. Artwork must be uploaded on PIAPRO with specific locked tags before the deadline in order to qualify.
More specifically, PIAPRO and SEGA are requesting artwork in three categories: school attire, yukata and loading screen images. For the first category, one simply has to draw a Crypton VOCALOID character in clothing appropriate for school, which can also be clothes that teachers would wear or gym uniforms. The artwork has to be submitted on PIAPRO and locked with a “ＳＥＧＡ０３コラボＡ” tag (see the bottom of the details page for more info). The deadline is set for 10:00am (Japan time) on February 13 to allow ample time for young ladies in love to prepare for Valentine’s Day, according to the blog post. The winner will have his/her design converted into 3D to be used in the game. For the yukata category, the participant would have to color in/draw a design on the provided template on the details page and submit using a locked tag “ＳＥＧＡ０３コラボＢ” by 10:00am February 27. For the saving/loading screen category, art must be drawn over the template provided and uploaded to PIAPRO with the locked tag “ＳＥＧＡ０３コラボＣ” by 10:00am April 2. The system text for these screens will be added by the game engine, so entries should not contain any text of that sort. A minimal 1920×1080 resolution is required and the winner will need to provide a .PSD (Photoshop) format file.
