As part of the 2013 convention's "Tales of Yōkai" theme, we announced a Yōkai Art Contest with a Grand Prize of a free 2013 Artist's Alley Table. (See this thread for contest announcement.)
We received many entries from excited artists. Judging was done by our Social Media team, who organized the event. While we could tell all the artists put a lot of time and effort into their entries, in the end we could only pick one Grand Prize Winner.
However, due to the volume of high quality entries, we did decide to add a Runner Up prize. The Runner Up will receive one (1) free convention badge to Anime Boston 2013.
Below you can see the Grand Prize Winner and Runner Up.
We would especially like to thank all the artists for participating. The contest has been a great success and we look forward to doing more events like this in the future.
