Eligibility: 18+, U.S.

Enter Now

Alter the laws of the universe with the Rick and Morty Interdimensionally Dysfunctional Contest!

Create an illustration of Rick, Morty, and/or the rest of the Smith family in a crazy interdimensional situation. Make it original and weird. Blow our minds. Rick and Morty co-creator, Justin Roiland, will pick the best submissions. These winners will each receive a custom Adult Swim gift bag, DeviantArt Points, and cash prizes!

Rick and Morty isn't for the weak of heart. The hilarious adventures of genius scientist (Rick Sanchez) and his fretful grandson (Morty Smith) typically veer out-of-control, as they unravel the very fabric of time and space. To celebrate Season 2 of the hit television show, Adult Swim and DeviantArt challenge you to pervert the laws of the space time continuum and take Rick and Morty on a bizarre adventure!

How to enter Rick and Morty Interdimensionally Dysfunctional Contest

Step 1

Watch the Rick and Morty Season 2 trailer and review “The About the Show” section for inspiration for your entry and to better understand the themes and personalities used on the show.

Step 2

Choose at least one member of the Sanchez/Smith family to portray on an adventure in an original different dimension! You may also feature other characters from the show, but you must feature at least one member of the family in your twisted new dimension.

Step 3

Submit your entry to the contest category using the Submit Entry button below.

Beth Smith

Rick’s daughter, mother of Summer and Morty. Doctor. OK, horse doctor. But still a doctor. Jerry’s wife. Is that wine?

Father of Morty and Summer. Object of Rick’s disdain. Titanic enthusiast. Bad golfer.

Good luck to the semi-finalist.  And congrats to everyone who entered this contest.  I saw a lot for great work and I thank people for the comments and favorite-ing of mine.  I wonder what is in the Gift Bags?  I also wonder when they will make the final announcement?  I'll just keep checking.  Good job all!  :)

that was just on the use of "rick and morty" which is understandable, and an easy work around. I think they just didn't want the rick and morty logo kinda deal on it. I think the better entries are the ones with no text, a picture says a 1000 words. I was worried because I put my signature on it, but they said in the rules you could it just had to be removable.

Was there any rule against putting our Entry in a Group??
It seems the top 30 don't have Group entries and I panicked a bit when I realized my art had been in a Group.

:iconsjvernon:
sjvernon Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2015  Professional General Artist
I'm not aware of that being a rule. They do seem to have relaxed the "just arriving in a new dimension" part of the rules, though... because in my mind the only way to depict "just arriving" requires a portal near the characters, and several of the final 30 don't seem to have portals in them at all.  Great illustrations, but seem to be depicting more time in the new dimension rather than having just arrived.  But maybe that's just me being nitpicky.

Krissalty Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
I think what they were trying to stress is the importance of "new dimension" and not the arrival.
Thank you for the response. Hopefully the Group thing is irrelevant.

Agreed. The rules, as always for deviantart contests, were a little misleading. Not complaining though - the top 30 entrants look great!

Cant wait for the final unveiling of the winners! Only problem I have is  the new(ish) deviantart sorting. Before you had 30 or more on screen at once per page. Now its half res pieces, so to see all the pieces your scrolling for what seems like forever. Many good entries got almost no views or likes. Regardless, a lot of good art, deep in the contest:)
