We can now proudly present and congratulate the winner of MDC2013: Simo Sievänen with his picture ”Battleneko”. Sievänen brought home the victory by getting the maximum score of 24p/24p and beating the following contestant with a mind blowing 5 points!
We also present the top 10 contestants… which actually is a Top 8… There were a total of 12 pictures submitted to the contest. However, due to different circumstances only 9 of them were judged. It was extra exiting to see that the list ended up with a draw on 5th place with two pictures gaining 11 points.Just as remarkable is the fact that Caroline Haldin conquered both 2nd and 3rd place.
The judges used the Eurovision Song Contest-inspired system of having as many points available as there were contributions to vote for. In this case there were 8 judge-able pictures, thus the maximum amount of score was 8 going down to 1 point. A judge could only vote a certain amount of points once.
After much thought and consideration this was the end-result:
1. Simo Sievänen – Picture: Battleneko – 24p/24p
2. Caroline Haldin – Picture: Forever Space – 19p/24p
3. Caroline Haldin – Picture: Hear Me Roar – 18p/24p
4. Senni Kettunen – Picture: Sodan Aamu (Dawn of War) – 16p/24p
5. Carl-Gustav Stenvall – Picture: A Divine Presence – 11p/24p
5. Diosángeles Soto Véliz: – Picture: Scarlet 4 – 11p/24p
7. Miika Heikura – Picture: ”Untitled” – 5p/24p
8. André Djupsjöbacka – Picture: Där Manligt och Kvinnligt Förenas (Where Masculine and Feminine are United) – 4p/24p
Due to submitting his picture after deadline, the judges decided to disqualify Jenian Katarn from the contest. But we want to give a honorary mention about his participation, and also show his picture, as his picture left a great impression on the judges. In fact the judges would have placed Katarn’s picture Juno in 3rd place if submitted on time.

IT IS FINALLY HERE!!!!!
Föreningen för Underliga Intressen vid Åbo Akademi r.f. proudly presents the ”Manga Drawing Contest” where YOUR creativity is the center of the attention.
Let your imagination flow free in creating the most awesome master piece of manga-art. Following the theme of Science Fiction & Fantasy as your inspirational guidelines you may create a story, event or universe unique to your creativity and personality. The contestant is free to interpret this theme as they see fit and therefore you may put your favorite characters in a new situation, or create your own epic hero!
The purpose is to create a poster-like drawing. It may consist of many parts like a manga-cartoon or it may be a stand-alone picture. The latter, however, is preferred as it may be very difficult to judge a whole cartoon to a stand-alone picture.
