Back in July PIAPRO and NEW PEOPLE started a contest for a US design for Miku. Entries were due by the first of August and the winner was just revealed.
Artist exiled_artist‘s design was the chosen design. You can visit exiled_artist’s DeviantART gallery here.
In an included message on the winning announcement page, Crypton stated that the prize is actually a trip to Japan for the next Hatsune Miku Live concert. They also said that the winner entry will be adopted for commercial use and projects “related to the next concert.”
The winner of the banner competition was also announced and it was artist Shiratama. You can view Shiratama’s PIAPRO’s gallery here.
The banner is now being featured in Japantown and the design is also being used on charity goods to benefit Japan’s relief efforts. These items are on sell at the NEW PEOPLE store during the Festival.
Congratulations to the winners! It was great to see so many entries to help Miku’s US popularity and show support for Japan.
