Nendonesia Photo Contest

Nendonesia, a website made up by Nendoroid lovers from Indonesia, is proud to celebrate their 1st anniversary with a photo contest!

In case anyone is wondering why there are cellphones there, the photo contest this time around will only use mobile phones as the image capturing device. The contest is also open to everyone (local and international). You can check the rules of the contest below.



The theme for this photocon is Spreading Nendo-love to everyone! What does it mean? Well, we give you the freedom to interpret the meaning. Generally speaking though, the phrase means something like the following:

  • We have to love each other.
  • Love is one of the most important thing in life.
  • I think Nendoroid is lovely; do you think so too?

Well, if you have another interpretation, feel free to express it through your photo. Make sure that your photo could deliver the meaning clearly. ^^


The prize is one Nendonesia Merchandise Set and one to-be-announced Nendoroid for two winners. We will announce which prize goes to the grand winner and which one goes to the runner up soon. ^^
