I would like to enter as well, but I don't know what to do.
In fact i don't know how to make something innovative about this theme, and i'm afraid i'm gonna make something "expected"...

Ooh this sounds like a cool contest! Will try to think of some ideas!

You can transform images that have a lot of space into other image with compression formats (JPEG, for example) that really take much less space without much loss of quality. Just make sure you compress the file right after you've finished the entire picture in order to have the least loss of overall quality. This way you can make large complex pictures without really much space. I don't think people will be looking whether the banners picture quality is so excellent that you can actually distinguish every ayu pore if you zoom in a lot in the picture, so the space restriction shouldn't really be much of a problem imo.

kimmeh 4th April 2013 11:26 AM

I know you compress JPGS, but it was more that 500kb is little if you want to make an entire collage or maybe wallpaper. Banners don't take much, but I'd guy want to make 1000x1000px stuff, 500kb is too little.

Αyumi 4th April 2013 07:24 PM

Awesome, can't wait to see all the entries. Gonna be super interesting~

yizhihenanjing 17th April 2013 05:36 PM

so excited to see the works ^^!! Good luck everyone :*. Thanks alll contestants ^^

artcika 27th April 2013 04:17 PM

i really really wanted to participate in this, but of course my head gives me ideas for alan and Namie now instead of Ayu... man i hate this... lol i guess i'm skipping again...:(

musume-1830m 27th April 2013 07:39 PM

Looks interesting!
I must try it!

xLuna&1LOVE 5th May 2013 03:32 PM

Unfortunately I missed the deadline due my own project which I had to finish for the third semester. I am done now, but still love to enter this competition. AHS-staff, is there a possibilty to delay the deadline (I still do not see any entries, even though this is the first day after the 4th of May) so there are still some members who can work on their pieces?

Okay, let's extend the deadline to 18 May 2013.

musume-1830m 6th May 2013 05:59 PM

Thanks for a second chance. I'm so busy with my school so I don't have any time for deadline. Thank you!

MiiSan 19th May 2013 11:26 PM

Can't wait to see the entries :D

Unfortunately, I was so busy with the uni that I even forgot there was a contest so I guess next time I might participate.

Good luck to all the contesters :)

marty 22nd May 2013 12:46 PM

I was looking forward to this, isn't it going to start? Hope it starts soon.

yabieru 26th May 2013 06:06 PM

Yeah, me too. Deadline was May 18th and it's 26th already. Hope it starts soon :)

AHS Staff 27th May 2013 01:27 AM

I was hoping to receive more entries than have been submitted so far. Are there more people who want to participate if the deadline is extended again?

AyuGAME 27th May 2013 09:56 AM

Extend to early June?

KyahRyorin 28th May 2013 06:03 AM

I'm interested, but lack of time recently has prevented me from doing anything. I'd love an extension.

xLuna&1LOVE 28th May 2013 06:12 PM

However I like to participate, and asked for the delay. I'm sorry, AHS-staff, but I have a project which last until the 17th of June and this one really needs my attention. Like, totally. It's an important project, because if I fail, I fail my whole year of college. And that's a shame, considering I started off pretty good :(

marty 28th May 2013 07:22 PM

I'd prefer a delay of the contest and to have more people joining, the important thing is that'll be done! =D Maybe it's better just doing it in summer, like early July or something, when everybody is free (i suppose)?

JaysenRyan 30th May 2013 06:43 PM

Honestly I think it's time to just do a contest that everyone usually participates in, like karaoke. But idk, maybe hav a specific artist you have to sing. (Kelly Clarkson is a good candidate!)

xLuna&1LOVE 30th May 2013 11:50 PM

^ Give people who cannot sing nor do know how to make remixes a chance to show their talent as well.

artcika 1st June 2013 07:34 PM

^this, and what does Kelly Clarksn have to do with Ayu anyway? lol

i wanted to participate in this so badly, but i basicly got a creativity block and lack of resources didn't help either...so with broken heart i had to pass =/

hsienko 3rd June 2013 04:13 AM

I wanted to participate but for me, it was difficult to come up with something for this concept that wouldn't end up looking crappy.

because even though this was originally an Ayumi forum, you have to admit it has evolved a bit itself into a hub of all kinds of stuff. Maybe the site itself is what needs to change. I am a huge Kelly fan so of course id suggest her, but even if the site opened up the karaoke contests or remix contests to asian artists only, it might get a better response. This forum can only be as active as Ayumi's career. And lately it seems she just isn't as gung-ho about it.

artcika 9th June 2013 06:48 PM

^well if this is the only forum u actually visit then u might not know that almost every forum besides having a theme of topics on a certain artist also has general stuff too. It's how things work.
as for contests i don't think it would be a good idea to just do whatever. I mean they give the prizes of Ayu singles, because it's an ayu forum so it's just logical to have a contest involving Ayu even if it's not as alive as it used to be. Plus the whole forum is less alive now, for example the graphics part is absolutelly dead now, but it used to be a realy livelly place, some things just aren't as popular anymore. I still enjoy the place as it is, tho.

tehkotak88 16th June 2013 10:22 PM

Is it still possible for us to upload any entries?

I just read it and I'd like to participate
but I want to make sure first

xLuna&1LOVE 18th June 2013 01:37 PM

^ this! Would be lovely to have this contest anyway. These last months are always so busy for most of us.

MiiSan 19th June 2013 06:16 AM

^^ Same here, to know if it's still time.

yabieru 29th June 2013 04:37 PM

I'm still hoping it starts soon. I wanna see all entries :)

MiiSan 28th July 2013 02:19 AM

Soooooo it's almost the end of July.

Any hope for the contest being continued? I can still make one entry if it needs more participants.

Koumori 30th August 2013 08:26 AM

Hello all,

Unfortunately, the moderator organising this competition has had to take some time away from the forum due to unavoidable circumstances. We're going to put the contest on hold for now but hopefully we can get it back up and running when possible. :) In the meantime, feel free to still enter the contest by PM'ing the AHS Staff account. Rules still apply and will still be referred to in the future.

xLuna&1LOVE 31st August 2013 05:03 PM

That's wonderful, thank you Koumori. Hope the mod who was organising this is doing okay.

JaysenRyan 14th December 2013 09:18 PM

That awkward moment when months go by. I hope the moderator is ok. In the meantime how about a new contest until this one can be resumed?

tsumekaze_ 30th December 2013 04:03 PM

I'd love a new contest with this theme. I'd surely participate ^^
