[Update] Anniversary/Appreciation Fanbook Project  
Happy 20th Anniversary
Appreciation Fanbook Project

Our project is underway with over 290 300 participants from over 40 countries. It's going to be a great celebration of CLAMP from people all over the world and it's going to be a darn heavy book.

To participate, please read over the initial post carefully and comment there. That post will be left open until April, so that I may keep track of how large the project is getting.

And here's new information:
A. Your editors and volunteer scanners.
B. Deadlines!!!!
C. Graphics and Cover contest - preliminary info
D. Availability of the final product

A. Your editors will be from all around the world. Each country has been assigned an editor. Please make note of your editor. You will be sending your work to that person. Do NOT send anything now.

dark_suzuka, gsnapcookie, cardcaptorkiki & ETA: chiapetzukamori - USA


clow_shirow & miyazawa_lulu - SPAIN, CHILE, BOLIVIA, COLUMBIA

crys_tenkari - CANADA

darksage29 - PHILIPPINES

hungrybookworm - UNITED KINGDOM

les_lenne - GERMANY





morgif_kun - ITALY, NORWAY





morgif_kun will take any unnamed countries from Europe.
clow_shirow & miyazawa_lulu will take any other spanish-speaking countries.
Any additional countries will have chibiyuuto.

Our final review editors will be iamsocool12345, starlady38 and myself/nokiirat.


1. If you do NOT have a scanner, you will need to mail your fanwork to one of our volunteers in April or early May. They are NOT responsible for any mail damage. You can maybe take your work to a local library, too, if you do not live near any of these volunteers.

The scanner will send your scanned work to your country's editor and then return your work. (When the time comes, please contact the scanner for their address, and so that they know to look out for your work)

Our volunteer scanners are:
kasumicc - CHILE/S. America
junosama - USA/N. America
jannachan - NETHERLANDS/Europe

2. Regular submissions will be accepted between May 17th and June 6th only. NO late submissions will be taken.

Anything sent directly to me/nokiirat will be deleted (depending on how nice a mood I am in).


Graphic Designer Competition - mid-February
There were a handful of you that expressed interest in helping, but to make this fair we'll put it to a vote. We will need one graphic designer and possibly one backup. The contest will run in February, but here are a summary of key points if you'd like to brainstorm beforehand.

-You will be designing a sample country splash page for the contest.
-You CANNOT use CLAMP's original artwork or graphics. Any logos or imagery must be designed by you, so you might want to keep it simple since you'll be in charge of 40 or so countries' splash pages.
-The book will be a 10x8 inch (25x20 cm) landscape book.
-More specifics on this contest will be announced Jan 31st, but please start working on your ideas now.

Cover Design Competition - end of February
-We'll need one cover design with the book's title, "Happy 20th Anniversary •CLAMP• Appreciation Fanbook". This contest will run during the end of February.
-You'll need to submit your a sample draft of your design (it does not have to be the finished, polished cover).
-Again, You CANNOT use CLAMP's original artwork or graphics. Any logos or imagery must be designed by you.
-The winner will work with the graphics designer to get the whole book's look together.
-More specifics on this contest will be announced in February, but please start working on your ideas now.

Anyone can enter these contests including editors.


D. The last topic is the availability of the final product. Many of you expressed interest in buying the final book or viewing it somehow online. We will make it available in print and online. For everyone, this means that if you are participating by sending in work, you are accepting the fact that your work will be seen by others beyond CLAMP.

The editors and I are still debating whether the online version may be edited for people who do not want their work shared online. The book in print will NOT be edited.

Please check back for more details. Keep working on your fanwork and send in the absolute best of your thoughts and creations.

The next fanbook update will be January 24th!! and will cover the specifics of the Graphic Designer Competition.

Hello Canada~!
I'd just like to let the Canadian fans know that I've set up a contact post at my LJ, so feel free to comment on the post to voice questions and get in touch! I'd love to hear from you all, and I'll do my best to make sure Canada's section is arranged fabulously~!

SUPER EXCITING!!! Thanks so much for making this a reality! I may have forgotten to mention this before but participating in a global project that we can share with CLAMP is AWESOME 10,000!

To all the editors, you guys are so awesome for volunteering your time and effort. :D :D :D

Thank you for the information!
morgif_kun on January 18th, 2009 12:07 pm (UTC)
Italia & Norge! *waves*
(and all European countries without an assigned editor!)

I'm also going to make a post in Italian/English on my journal to make it easier to get in touch! I'll link it here once it's up.

Farò anch'io un post in italiano/inglese sul journal per restare più facilmente in contatto! Lo linkerò qui appena l'avrò scritto.

Thanks for your hard work, nokiirat, and all the rest of our fellow editors ^^

I've also made a post (after more than a year with an absolutely dead account, yeah! XD) for those of you who want to ask me anything :3 It's completely in spanish ^^

TRANS: Mi último post es sobre el proyecto, para que me preguntéis cualquier cosa, y está totalmente en español :3

omg Thank you soooo much you guys!! I love this project! ^__^ Im SO happy that you're gona make the book available for us to see as well! *_* I also love the idea that in the competitions, none of CLAMP's original artowkr can be used. We should have a very special front cover then! <3 ooh, I hope they write "CLAMP" in a lovely font!! <3

possible error
the part of: clow_shirow & miyazawa_lulu - SPAIN, CHILE, BOLIVIA, COLUMBIA, i wonder if it's COLUMBIA that is in north america or the south american country COLOMBIA.
if you are reffering to the contry is COLOMBIA....

n,n in other hand thanks for the info and good luck for the editors!
clow_shirow on January 25th, 2009 07:26 pm (UTC)
Re: possible error
It's south american country ^^U, it would be strange to make a difference in an state when the other are always countries, don't you think? xD
clow_shirow on January 25th, 2009 07:35 pm (UTC)
Nice to meet you all ^^, thanks to nokiirat and all out editor pals! Good luck to everyone in this amazing project!

For our spanish-speaking countries, you can comment me as well in my fixed post ^^

just a question...
Umm... excuse me... if I may just ask a question... I'm from the Philippines, so I'd have to send my work to darksage29, right? But I'm 13 years old, I can't view his page, much less give him a message, since it says "Mature Content". What do I do now?
