The 1st place winner will receive USD10,000 and the 2nd place winner USD3,000, and both will be invited to attend a special awards ceremony in Japan, plus receive a soon-to-be-released Nintendo NX* personally signed by Mr. Shigeru Miyamoto (the iconic originator of Super Mario Bros. and other favourite games). A runner-up prize of USD500 will also be awarded.
The competition is open to anyone, from all over the world, and you can submit entries up until August 31 at 08:31, Japan time (UTC/GMT +9 hours, 23:59).
