The style of the work is free. The technique can be traditional or digital. Fan art is excluded.

Closing date: November 1st, 2012 at 23:59, Paris time. At [email protected]

Format: JPEG maximum quality 300 DPI A4, accompanied by 2 "Work in Progress" images in low resolution (to prevent theft). The shipment must be made by its creator. Creation must be completed by a single person. The image must be original, never published before. The same person may enter multiple times, but must send a separate email for each entry. The works will be posted within 10 days of receipt.

The email should include:
- The work in question in high resolution (attached file or link)

Voting method:
9 Juries will rate each design on a scale of 10. The 10th person will correspond to the vote of the public.
Votes on Facebook: The number of "I like" on the album's Facebook fanpage Polymanga will determine the rating of the public / 100.

For example: 1000 "I like" or + = 10/10
810 "I like" or + = 8.1/10

Deadline for the Facebook votes: December 1st at 23:59. Jury deliberations: December 5th.
