Activity Book Submissions

New for Mysterium 2020, we’ve decided to create an activity book based on Myst, Mysterium, Obduction, and other Cyan-related content. We’ll be making some of our own pages, but we want to open submissions up to the entire fan-base. Feel free to submit a coloring page, word search, crossword, or any other activity you can think of!

In light of the changes to this year’s convention, we have extended the submission deadline to June 30, and will offer a digital version of the activity book for download during the convention. We also plan to hold onto any submitted designs and print them for the rescheduled 2021, in-person convention.

General Submission Rules

  • Please include the name of your page (if any), and how you would like to be credited
  • Entries not meeting submission guidelines will be rejected, and the submitter notified
  • Entries are to be kept confidential until after the winners are announced. Entries found posted in any public format prior to that date will be disqualified. (This includes publicly asking people to look at your entry elsewhere, but does not include privately asking people for help.)

    • If you choose to use a raster image, design it to fit at least an 6×9″ page at 300 DPI
  • Line width should be at least 6 pixels
