The Snow Miku 2022 art contest has one more week to go before the entry deadline on April 19th, 2021 @ 5:00 PM JST, so if you haven’t completed and submitted your entry yet, then don’t delay any longer! Check out the contest entry details below if you want to get your entry in before the deadline.

The theme for 2022 is “The Sea in the image of a Wintery Hokkaido“. This is a rather difficult theme to think of ideas for since the sea is not usually something that comes to mind when you think of the snow! It might help to check out the entry list if you need help imagining how to make this theme work.
