How to apply to GIFMAGAZINE Official GIF CREATORS
GIFMAGAZINE is Japan’s largest community for GIF animated works, with 50,000 new works being submitted each month. Among these, we choose the creators of the works which have the most artistic merit and show the artist’s unique world view and promote these artists as GIFMAGAZINE Official Creators.
About GIFMAGAZINE Official Creators
We promote the works of Official Creators on a special page where they will be viewed by more people in Japan and around Asia than usual submissions.
