Re-Enact Your Favorite Attack on Titan Moment!April 1, 2017
Win Attack on Titan prizes by submitting your best Attack on Titan re-enactment photo by April 16th!
Surely everyone at some time has imagined he or she was a giant, towering monster, stomping through a city, kicking down skyscrapers, grabbing puny tiny humans by the handful and ramming them into your mouth. Tremble before my footsteps, insignificant people! Perhaps you played “I'm a monster” in your elementary school days, when your parents had to pay for the carnage you wreaked on the class's toy town. Maybe you were a monster in your therapy session last week. Maybe you're playing at being a monster now. We won't judge.
Now BookWalker is giving you the opportunity to turn playtime into prizes, as we challenge you to recreate moments from the greatest giant-monster phenomenon of the twenty-first century – Attack on Titan! Of course, this is a big, nay titanic, year for the franchise, with everyone's favorite hideous grinning giants crashing back onto our screens, as the anime resumes this April. So what better time to pay tribute to Hajime Isayama's epic in photo form?
The Attack on Titan manga, published by Kodansha Comics, is a phenomenon, with more than 63 million copies in print, so we're guessing you've all read it! What we want you to do is to re-enact your favorite moments from the saga, being as brilliant and inventive as you can be within the rules, which we'll get to below. As you can see, we've put up a couple of sample photos above to give the idea of what we're after.
Please submit your entries by April 16th by following the rules and entry steps below. The photos will be judged by you, the ANN readership, in a voting poll on April 21st. Here's what you can win…

CONTEST ENTRY FORM
No Photoshop, and no photo editing tools to enhance your picture, period. Got that? It's fine to change the picture to black and white, of course, but that's all. We'll be scrutinizing the pics very closely for cheating. What we're looking for is in-camera reality and practical ingenuity, with no post-production tweaks, thank you very much. Anyone caught breaking the rule will be rewarded with a private audience with two of Titan's stars: Sawney and Beane, at their feeding time.
Cosplay is cool. As you all know already. Though it's not mandatory – entirely up to you. This is NOT a cosplay contest; contest entries will be judged for the creativity of their re-enactment. By the way, if any of you has the ability to actually turn into a horrible giant Titan, don't bother calling us. We'll just run away screaming.
Do not steal other people's photos and use them as your own for the contest! Stealing's not cool, people. If we find you've appropriated someone else's tribute, you can explain to the digestive tracts of Sawney and Beane.
The deadline to send in the photos is April 16th, 11.59 p.m. Pacific Time.
You may submit more than one photo, but only ONE entry per person, selected by BookWalker, will be put on the poll. Multiple entries will NOT increase your chance of winning!
Should we get an unexpectedly large amount of entries, BookWalker will select the preliminaries for the poll. We appreciate there are a lot of Attack on Titan fans out there!
The photos will be put up on a voting poll on Anime News Network on April 21st, for you, the judges, to choose the top three winners! The voting will be open until April 30th.
• In celebration of the start of Season 2 of the Attack on Titan anime, the first eight manga will be on sale as a bundle set for only 5,240 JPY (approximately 49.99 USD).
