'My Famicase Exhibition' NES cartridge art show returns to Tokyo on April 27

The annual "My Famicase Exhibition," an art show of fan-made NES cartridge designs, will return to Tokyo on April 27 through May 31, according to the event's official website.

Artists from around the globe have contributed to the exhibit in the past, designing and printing Nintendo Entertainment System cartridge labels for fake games. The event, currently in its ninth year, will again be held in retro gaming specialist store Meteor in Tokyo. Exhibition hours are from 1 to 8 p.m. and will be free and open to the general public.

Artists interested in having their work included in the exhibit must send event organizers their submissions by March 31. Artwork must be completely original and cannot use any existing copyrighted characters or assets. Works can be submitted by individuals or a team of artists, but only one submission is allowed per entrant.

An interactive archive of cartridge artwork from previous shows can be found here.
