Hatsune Miku is once again lending her aid for safety awareness in the Hokkaido prefecture of Japan! In response to an increase in deadly motorcycle accidents, the Hokkaido Prefectural Police Traffic Department has adopted Hatsune Miku in a motorcyclist safety awareness campaign.
The theme for the Snow Miku 2022 design contest was “The Sea in the image of a Wintery Hokkaido“. Take a look at the finalists below, then go cast your vote! The chosen design will be featured in the upcoming Snow Miku 2022 in February next year.
The next Miku Expo inspired Fan Forge from For Fans By Fans is up and running, and accepting art entries from all over the world! Your artworks, if selected, could be used for shirts, wallets, backpacks, and other collectables.

After the success of the previous two Hatsune Miku prize figure art collaborations, SEGA and Piapro are now running a third! For the new Super Premium Prize Figure art collaboration, SEGA and Piapro are seeking fan costume ideas for the pop summer theme, “Splash Parade“.
Art design entries for the costume of Snow Miku 2021 and her pet rabbit Yukine are being accepted on Piapro! Every year, Hatsune Miku and Snow Miku fans from around the world are invited so submit their design ideas for a chance to have their Snow Miku featured at the Sapporo Snow Festival in Hokkaido! The winning design will also be turned into a Nendoroid and Figma, and will be used in promotional material for the event.
