[pixiv SUKI1] August contest "Kokon Yōkai Chronicles" is underway!

Greetings from pixiv.

pixiv SUKI1's August contest "Kokon Yōkai Chronicles" will be held from August 24th, 2020 (Mon).
In this contest, we invite you to submit works on the theme of yōkai (Japanese monsters, spirits, and demons) that appear in folklore and urban legends.

The modern yōkai faction, the "Gense tō party", is an organization which is favorable to the coexistence of yōkai and humans in the developed modern society.
The traditional yōkai faction, the "Yōkai tō party", is a group that respects the traditions of the yōkai and refuses the association with humans.

Side with one of the two factions and submit your yōkai-themed works.

Give space to creativity and post your yōkai-themed work to pixiv. They can feature yōkai from old tales and ghost stories, spirits from urban legends, and even original yōkai of your own creation.
Anything goes as long as your work is yōkai-themed.
We're looking forward to seeing your entries!
