It's... even later than normal this year (maybe end-of-year is becoming the new mid-year?) but the Court-Records Original Character Contest is back! Not familiar with it? The idea's simple: come up with Ace Attorney fan characters and you could win some serious AA swag! (Not to mention some internet bragging points.)

This year we're going back to basics... and also to Khura'in! To celebrate Spirit of Justice, we're asking participants to come up with an original Ace Attorney character that would fit in the world of SOJ, be that back home in Japanifornia or abroad in Khura'in. Submit your character (via a representative fanfic, pieces of fanart, or sprites), and it'll be up for voting against your fellow AA fans.

What's up for grabs? The AA6 artbook, the Phoenix/Apollo selection OSTs, and a nice AA6 3DS carrying case - plus, as always, attorney's pins from Fangamer. See the prizes section of the contest page for details.

Ready to give this a shot? Then head over to the contest page and read over the guidelines! This year you'll have until January 15th, 2017 to get your entries in. Note that as we prepare to move to our new site, we're changing the submission process this year, and you'll be submitting your entries directly onto the beta site.

Any questions can either be posted in this topic or sent to us directly at courtrecord [at] gmail [dot] com.

Best of luck, everyone!

OH YEAH COMP TIME!
AAO did a mini comp based on Khura'in themed characters, so I need to think of something original! (And it was good feedback on my last idea!)

And oooh we're making the move soon!? I wonder how much more polished the new site will be!? (Still was a little beta-ish since last time I checked XD)

Aww, this sounds like fun! Question though, since this is based on Spirit of Justice, would the size of submitted sprites reflect original AA DS resolution size, i.e 256 x 192px ? Or the 3DS size..? Which is.. Uh.. whatever it is..

Not eve sure if it matters.. just asking. :ron:

3DS screens are 400 x 240, but yeah seeing as they're 3D models and not sprites (and the 3D category isn't on this year) I'd say stick to DS proportions.

Ah, thanks SuperAj! I honestly never knew the resolution for 3DS screens. I'll make sure to remember.
And yeah it does seem more appropriate to have DS resolution at the end of the day. :-P

I can't wait until submissions start rolling in, It's always fun to see how creative people get.

Finally! I already started thinking there won't be a contest this year. This time, I'll try to participate. C:<

Quick question:
Spoiler: Possible SOJ Spoiler
Would using the Justice Law Offices count as a spoiler?
Or
Spoiler: Possible SOJ Spoiler
making a character part of the Defiant Dragons? Would that be a spoiler?
:ron:

This is a very good question because if the answer is "No" I'll need to rework my entry.

Um, is it exactly necessary for me to finish a fanfic by the time the contest ends? :lana:

Uhm, I'm having issues with the Beta site, I couldn't edit to add the tag "occ2016" on my submission.. I hope it's okay if it doesn't have the tag? I physically can't add it in. It's clearly labelled otherwise as a submission though.

I think there's an "edit tags" button at the bottom of your entry. Just type the tag and click it and see if that works. It is annoying you can't edit submissions. Maybe add editing as a feature (henke?)

Yeah, that's exactly what I did, but it just gives a big white screen that says "OK" at the top... :acro: Not sure if that does anything though.

I've had several errors pop up when I tried to submit my entry, I almost thought I was going to break everything. :gant:
The Beta site looks lovely, so I can't wait for all the irons to be wrinkled out.

Every time I try and submit my entry, I keep getting this error message.

EDIT: I tried it again after a while and it worked.

Last day! If you're having any issues with submissions or updating your existing submission, let us know. You won't be DQed if you couldn't submit/update before the deadline because of any issues with the site.

So I added an extra pose to my entry at the last minute, but I forgot to update the list of sprites I used with components used for the new pose. Should I edit that in even though we're past the deadline?

What happened? Did your entry get removed or something?

I think the issue is just that editing your post after the deadline could be perceived as cheating if it's unclear what exactly you edited.

Don't worry about minor changes like this.

Voting should be going up soon!
