UPDATE September 30th, 2013:
Good day, Bronies! We have received dozens of submissions over the past week for the contest and they've been great! And, they've come in from all over the world! Many thanks to each and every one of you who took the time to send yours in!
But, never fear for those who would still like to, because there's still time to share your artwork with us. It can be drawings, paintings, etc. but it can also be photos of crafts you've created, animations, etc. As we say below, just keep it clean! We're taking submissions through next Wednesday, and will air them on Thursday, October 10th, the anniversary of the premiere of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Thanks again for your participation, or perhaps we should say /) !
Calling all Bronies! News 4 This Morning wants your fan art based around the morning show and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic to mark the upcoming anniversary of the premiere of the hit animated series.
As part of our entertainment section, News 4 This Morning likes to mark an occasion of “This Day in Entertainment History.” For example, we previously had props in for the anniversary of the premiere of Garfield & Friends and asked viewers their favorite Star Trek series on the day of its premiere.
With the popularity of fan created artwork in the community for My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, we're holding an art contest! Many Bronies, teenage and adult fans of the show, have created numerous pieces of artwork across various mediums—from paintings to computer-created drawings and even full-fledged animations, and more.
Earlier this year, Nathan Barlow (aka ShikariSpeeder) created an “OC” or Original Character for News 4 This Morning. Those who wish to participate can use that one, or whatever else comes to your imagination. The sky's the limit for what the artwork can be as far as medium, other characters, etc. but it must be clean and appropriate for all audiences, or it will deleted and ignored.
Submissions will be accepted from anywhere in the world through Wednesday, October 9th and aired Thursday, October 10th, the anniversary of the premiere of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. They can be sent to our Facebook page (link below), our Twitter (link below) or e-mailed to our producer at firstname.lastname@example.org!
We look forward to seeing what you come up with!
