Why such a delay? Well, I was going to write a long journal that was more formally written and gave explanations of the details about why we chose what we chose, and other details about the contest, our feelings, etc. It was going to be a long journal which is why this job-hunting and sickness delayed me so much-- Each day, there wasn't enough time for me to write such a long journal, so I said "Today's not good, but I'll do it tomorrow..." every day.
Now, I've decided to write a shorter and informal journal listing the winners in a simple way. I don't like this. I wanted to do a longer, more special journal... But too much time has passed so I have no choice but to do this.
The prizes are listed in detail in the original journal so please go back and read it again, or else you won't understand the list below:
~)+-x: Manga Romantic Scene Contest :x-+(~fonts used: http://www.dafont.com/the-king-queen-font.font | http://www.dafont.com/looong-time-no-see-sam.fontBut here's a change from that journal: The prize for honorable mentions has increased from 100 points to 150, and the remaining contestants who were not the winners or hon. mentions will receive a 25-point participation prize. (Now do you forgive me for my delay?? Eheh yes it's a bribe)
It's finally here!! Lace Song is having its very first contest! This contest is sure to be a lot of fun, and the prizes are very good. (**MONEY** is one of the prizes!) We hope you join in... but make sure you read the rules carefully. Entries that don't follow the rules can't win a prize.
