5. Original art is preferred over tracings.
6. We can't return entries. Sending photocopies of your original work is fine!
7. All entries become the exclusive property of VIZ Media, LLC. Submissions may be printed, reproduced, distributed or modified at our sole discretion in SHONEN JUMP, or any other media or publication or web site, or posted at conventions (or all of the above). No compensation will be paid for any such use of the submissions.
8. Please clearly label each piece of your artwork on the back with your name, address and age.
9. Drawings featuring SHONEN JUMP characters will be given priority over drawings of characters from other anime or manga.

DEFINITE DOs
1. Flex your creativity. SJ prides itself on showing the most original, most innovative manga art out there!

2. Pay attention to detail. It will separate your art from all the rest.

3. Include your name, address and age on the back of your art. Make sure to send in your consent form.

4. Send letters with your art. We want to know why you drew what you did. And besides, we need something to read. We get bored sometimes.

5. Use speed lines when you're drawing action... because it's so much cooler that way.

DEFINITE DON'Ts
1. Don't send any tracings! We already know the manga artists can draw! Show us your skill and imagination.

2. Don't use lined paper. It only detracts from the art.

3. Don't exclusively use computers. Retouching is allowed with computers, BUT fan art must be hand-drawn first. Please include the original sketch with any submission.

4. Don't fold your art when you mail it in!

5. Don't forget to draw Bo-bobo's nosehair. (As if you could forget.)
