This year, you will be able to participate in already well known competitions, such as "Cosplay portrait” and "One-hour thematic contest”, which will be held during the event. The winners will be awarded with diplomas and prizes during the Award Ceremony on the second day. We will also hold small 5-30 min contests, where the winners will be awarded on the spot. And there will be one mystery contest, so make sure to come by the art corner on both days to find out more!

Cosplay Portrait.

Time: up to 30 min. The idea is to portray the character that is being cosplayed by an assigned person. The details of the outfit and the overall portrayal of the character must be emphasized in the finished work. 


One-hour thematic contest.

The theme of the contest will not be revealed until the beginning. Any kind of drawing on the given theme is allowed. The completeness on the drawing plays a huge role in evaluation.  


Of course, we will have a "Homework contests” as well. This time we offer you to unleash your imagination and create a work within the "Camp trip” and "Epic Summer Adventure” themes. You can use your original characters, as well as movie, comic and anime heroes for our mascot. Yet again we have another homework contest for you. 

There is no definite format for the drawings, we accept everything created with pencils, paints, markers, crayons and also digital works (the participant will have to print it out before giving it to us). You should bring your work (painted or printed out) to us on until July 30th to UniCon Cafe, Aleksandra Čaka iela 58, Rīga (no mailbox).
