The new closing date is the 25th May 2013!

In anticipation of our “Wie.MAI.KAI 2013” convention, we announce our Fan Art Drawing Contest with great prizes to be won.

Topic: “Expedition into the Unknown”

zwb2013_teaserbildBe it deepest jungle, vast oceans, burning deserts, frozen wastes – or strange worlds and cultures – explore the unknown!
In our two Wie.MAI.KAI mascots, the maid (1|2) and the snail (see page header), the spirit of discovery has awoken. The two are embarking on an Expedition into the Unknown – but where will their journey take them? Tell us in this year’s drawing contest! Show us with your illustrations where their expedition is taking them and what adventures they experience there.

As always, our two mascots must be present on your art work. That said, there is no limit to your imagination and you can have them travel wherever you like.

All drawing and painting techniques are allowed, no matter whether you prefer to use pencil, crayons, aquarelle, or digital painting.
