With Sonic CD getting a re-release done by The Taxman next month, SEGA has started a fan-art contest with 50 prizes being given away in North America, Mexico and the United Kingdom each, so that makes 150 winners in total. The five best winners in each territory will get a copy of Sonic CD on XBLA, PSN or Steam and a copy of the Japanese soundtrack signed by Takashi Iizuka, Jun Senoue, Naofumi Hataya and Kazuyuki Hoshino, something any fan would appreciate. All the other winners will get the same except the soundtrack isn’t signed.
There are a few things you need to know before entering the contest: your submission needs to be related to Sonic CD. If it isn’t, your entry will not count and you’ve done all that work for nothing. It needs to be original, created by you and it can’t have appeared anywhere else, so it can’t be something you’ve already put on websites like DeviantArt or on forums, and you can’t show it off before the contest ends. You also need to be 13 years or older to take part in the contest. The deadline is 10:00 AM PT/18:00 GMT November 29th, 2011.
To find out how you can enter the contest and for more information regarding the rules go to the SEGA Blog.
it has the japanese soundtrack so i dont care
Oh, man… I’m from Argentina, no way I can enter this contest…
Too many great artists for me to even bother entering. 🙁
The Japanese / European soundtrack kicks seven shades of sh*t out of the American one. Think I’ll be entering this.
Since when was it annouced on steam?
When they announced this new version they already said it would be coming to PC Digital Download, which pretty much means Steam.
Besides that, they said you’d get the game on Steam in the SEGA blog post.
If I remember correctly, Mexico IS in North America… Typo Fail 😀
Ho-man. Gotta enter this contest!
i agree the japanese soundtrack its the best
This is going to produce so many pictures of the stardust speedway boss~
can we put our fan art on facebook for the contest?
No, you have to e-mail your fan art to SEGA. Go to the link to SEGA’s blog for more details.
I wont enter for the simple fact that my draws are pretty simple and don’t resemble life as it should (like adding shadows and deep face expretions),but I would if it wasn’t so far from where I live and if I could draw a bit more life-like.So good luck for those that that are goin to enter!
Question: If the prize to this is a digitally distributed game… why is the contest exclusive to THREE countries only?
Is it because of XBLA/PSN locations? Cause if it is, I think I can get by by LYING that I’m from one of those countries. Really.. so unfair.
I have a feeling that Sonic 4 Ep. 2 will have a contest now.
And then what happens if you win the CD soundtrack and they realise that you’re not from one of the three locations they specified?
Not a very well thought out plan, is it?
WOW that’s racist..and by the way, the japanese version of the game got a 100% scor COUNTING THE SOUNDTRACK!The american version got 70% because of the soundtrack…learn your facts
