Creatures has announced the winners of this year’s Pokemon TCG Illustration Contest! The theme of the contest was to draw a Pokemon in its daily life.
As originally announced, three illustrations will be turned into promo cards. The winner is REND, who will receive $5,000. The two runner-ups — one from Japan and one from the United States — will each receive $3,000. Like past contests, the three promo cards will presumably be released to the public sometime in the future.
Two more runner-ups will receive $1,000 each. The illustrations will not be turned into promo cards:
Fifteen honorable mentions will each receive $500, including our retired site artist, Xous54! :D
