The Worldwide Invitational is more than just Blizzard strutting their stuff. They also have a few contests to let you strut your stuff. The latest announcement is... a Fan Art contest!

They're asking for an exclusive piece of artwork from one of their Blizzard game franchises. They're asking that submissions be high definition JPG images, with a 1920x1200 resolution and no larger than 3 MB in size. I wear the world's largest dunce cap when it comes to this sort of art, so I am not sure if those are highly limiting requirements or not. Perhaps you can fill me in!

Registration is being done online, and it is taking place between June 6th and June 16th. Blizzard has posted the full rules on EU website, so you can head that way if you're in the mood for some legalese. They've also posted the prizes, which I've tucked behind the cut.

These prizes are listed on the EU page announcing the contest, so cash values are listed in Euros rather than US Dollars. If you want to do the conversion of value to USD, I believe it is currently roughly 1.6 USD for every Euro.

While this is currently only on the EU page, it may open up to the US as well. There's a pretty good chance it won't, however, since the Worldwide Invitational takes place in Paris.
