JO BEDU COMPETITION What is Japanese Childhood?

May 18, 2011

JO BEDU COMPETITION What is Japanese Childhood?Growing up in the Arab World in the 80′s and 90′s we were subjected to countless Japanese anime series that were dubbed in classical Arabic that had a huge impact on our childhood and have left their traces on Arab pop culture.

The Japanese Childhood Design Competition seeks to capture this impact.

We are looking for AMAZING designs, by amazing we mean not just clip art but actual illustrations that have great skill and effort invested in them. These designs will be printed on t-shirts, hoodies and more for everyone to enjoy.

We are not looking for a replica of one of the infamous characters from our childhood with their catch phrase. We are looking for the designer’s perspective of their Japanese childhood. To give you a better understanding of what we looking for check out the first releases of the Japanese childhood series:

1. Grendizer

2. Al Itti7adu Quwwa

3. Usual Suspects

4. Il Sufra Il 3ajeebeh

General Guidelines to follow when making a winning design:
