F.A.Q

About the post

  • I posted and I can't see my activity on the homepage?

    • After posting, scroll back to the form to post to get the direct link (or see errors if any). For your safety, only 18+ y/o users can see non-moderated activities on the homepage (in "new" tab). Wait for it to be approved by either our staff teams or by the community by getting enough likes.
  • Is it allowed to post multiple times? Can multiple dishes be in the same entry?

    • The minimum requirement to make a valid entry is one photo, but you're free to post multiple photos in the same entry. You can also post multiple different dishes in the same entry. You can post multiple entries, but only if they feature different dishes. If multiple entries win, you can only get one prize.
  • Can I promote my entry on other social media?

    • We encourage this! More promotion equals more people discovering delicious dishes made by this wonderful community, so we are totally cool with you promoting entries! You are however not allowed to offer anything else in exchange for a like (money, goods, services, …).
  • Do I have to post in English?

    • No, any language is fine.

About the dish

  • Can I submit something I baked/cooked before this contest?

    • Yes, as long as you made it yourself and you didn't use it already in any previous giveaway organized by School Idol Tomodachi (even birthday giveaways).
  • Does it have to be Aqours/LoveLive!/Halloween themed?

    • It has to be LoveLive! themed. It can be µ's, Aqours, PDP, SIF, All stars, or any other elements of the LoveLive! license, but it CAN'T be from idolmaster, bang dream, or any other similar license. Though we're organizing it around Halloween, it's allowed but not required to make it Halloween themed.
  • I'm not good at baking / I don't have the equipment, can I still enter?

    • It is allowed to make no-bake recipes or buy pre-made cookies or cakes, but we still want you to put some effort in your creation. You can use something you bought as a base and spend more time decorating it!
  • Does it have to be edible?

    • Yes. Though our judges will not be able to come to your house and taste test your creation, we will pay attention to the submitted photos and disqualify entries that are obviously not made of food.
  • Can I add non-edible parts, like a figure or accessories?

    • Yes, as long as the majority of your entry is made of food. Cake toppings are fine as well.
  • Is it allowed to photoshop, edit, add stickers, or alter photographs in any way?

    • You may add decorations, stickers, doodles, or do any kind of post-processing if you'd like.

About the prizes

  • Is it required to give a physical address to receive a prize?

    • We can give you a digital prize if you're not able or not comfortable with sending us your address: custom drawing or custom edits by our wonderful artists.
  • Can I enter if I'm not in the United States? Do I have to pay for shipping?

    • We ship everywhere in the world, and you don't need to pay for shipping!
  • Why are there no prize featuring my best girl?

    • We do our best to make our selection of prizes as large as possible, but it all depends on the generosity of our community. All our contests are organized thanks for the support of users like you, who donate the merch they don't want for themselves, or donate on Patreon. You too can help make our future contests better! Contact us if you have something to give.
  • No edible prizes this year?

    • No ;_; Last year's timing was perfect because I was in Japan when the contest ended and bought the prizes fresh, but I can't fly there this year and proxy services don't take the risk to handle edible prizes.
  • How can I thank you for your amazing work organizing these giveaways?

    • We always appreciate sweet comments below, and if you want to push it a little further, we have a Patreon open for donations <3
  • Any other question?

    • Reply in the comments section and we will do our best to help you.
