The Doll Festival (02/23/2007)

Fan Art Contest

To ring in the Doll Festival, we have decided to hold a very special Fan Art contest. All entries will be judged by an all-star panel of development and operations team members. Not only will those selected as winners have their illustrations displayed on the FINAL FANTASY XI official homepage, but will also be presented with the prestigious Nomad Moogle Rod, for use only in Vana'diel.


Must have an active FINAL FANTASY XI account.


Entries will be accepted from midnight on February 23, 2007 (PST) to midnight, March 4.

Illustration Theme

The "Ladies of Vana'diel"
From nobles to peasants, queens to commanders, if she's a lady of Vana'diel, we want you to draw her! While not a requirement, Doll Festival-themed illustrations are more than welcome!
