Hey Gamers and Collectors everywhere.

Splatoon's Squid Research Lab on Tumblr say's they've lost their senior artist on their staff , they have until May 29 (when their report is due) to get some artwork ready. So now they've turned to the public, anyone can submit art on Tumblr who want's to try and win some fabulous prizes, just post your artwork to Tumblr with the hashtags: #Splatoon, #Getinked and #Nintendo Contest Entry, the contest started sometime last week or so, but it won't end until May 29 so you have time. Get drawing and Get posting if you wanna' win anything. Here is what the squid research lab had to say the day the
Contest was announced:

"Splatoon ART CONTEST report! So…turns out our senior squid artist quit like two months ago and didn’t tell anyone. And now we need a bunch of sketches ASAP for our quarterly report, but when I checked his old desk drawers, all I found was a snorkel and a bunch of those little red sticks that come with the cheese-and-cracker packs that you use to spread the cheese. Remember those things? Anyway, I was in a full-blown panic until I thought of you guys! I bet some of you can draw some cool Splatoon art. Squid Research Lab needs your help!
Here’s what I’m thinking: Post your awesomest, most squidtastic Splatoon-themed artwork on Tumblr and tag it with #Splatoon, #GetInked and #NintendoContestEntry so we can find it. We’ll even give out some cool prizes for the ones we like best! The report is due on May 29, so you’ve got until then to show us what you’ve got. Y’all are the best! Oh, and the contest starts…RIGHT NOW!"-Splatoon on Tumblr
 They also included this at the end of the post:
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. Void where prohibited. Must be a legal resident of US (incl. DC) or Canada (excl. Quebec) 18+. Deadline: 5/29/15. 1 Grand Prize winner will receive one (1) Wii U system and one (1) Splatoon video game (ARV $359.98). 5 First Prize winners each receive one (1) Splatoon video game (ARV $59.99 each). Additional terms and conditions apply. Click here for official rules: Sponsor: Nintendo of America Inc.

This is obviously the specifics, saying what you'll get and all the terms you have to follow to get it. I didn't spot this until today, but they made it clear in their post that they could give out more than just one prize and use more than just one piece of artwork.
