General rules

  • You can choose any song, theme and sprites (including your own). This is so that we do not limit your potential and idea.
  • Mapping is not required. This is a storyboarding contest!
  • Use of provided sprites is optional, but it is strongly encouraged since points are calculated with sprites and their usage.
  • If you get a name change during the duration of the tournament, please let hosts know as soon as possible!
  • No previous experience necessary. (This includes experience with the beatmap editor's design tab, programming and photoshop, although it would be a great advantage.)
  • Prizes are distributed in the span of 2 weeks after results have been released.

Submission rules

  • This contest will be for individuals only. This means storyboard collaboration is prohibited.
  • If you want to use illustrations from an artist, acquire permission / cite accordingly.
  • If you want to use sprites from other storyboards, do not use them until you have permission from the storyboarder(s).
  • Regarding how much you can edit a sprite with it still being counted as part of a sprite from the sprite pool, please refer to the image below.

Contest editing rules

  • Do not share storyboards, code, and/or sprites when you are done! (This includes screenshots and/or GIFs of the storyboard.) Sharing them will put you in a disadvantage!
  • You can get hints on making specific effects you have in mind, but do not ask others to make an effect for you!
  • If you already have WIP storyboard, you may use it in this contest. However, we would like to see the SB you submit to us being used in a beatmap as well, without big modifications.
