Mascot Contest – Permanent

Event Details

This event finished on 20 December 2016

The Permanent Mascot Contest is a chance for artists to redesign Banzai’s mascots, Ban and Sai, in their own style to be used no matter the year’s theme. This is a separate contest from the normal, yearly, themed mascot contest. There are different rules and prizes. You may enter one or both – your choice!

Ban and Sai are looking for an artist that can give them a permanent look, something that will stand the test of time and that will represent the Anime Banzai Convention regardless of that year’s theme.


May 31, 2017 by 11:59pm MST
Any entries received after the deadline will be disqualified.

Information on our mascots:

  • Ban – blonde boy with green eyes; optional tanuki mask
  • Sai – brunette girl with purple eyes; optional kitsune mask
  • both should be aged 16-25 years
