The Digimon Web Dot-art Contest (デジモンウェブドット絵コンテスト Dejimon Webu Dotto-e Kontesuto) refers to two contests held over Digimon Web. The name "Digimon Web Dot-art Contest" is used by the Digimon Reference Book, on Digimon Web itself the contests were known as Original Digimon Contest (オリジナルデジモンコンテスト Orijinaru Dejimon Kontesuto). Fans were encouraged to sent in monochrome pixel art (dot art) of their own, created Digimon, like the Digimon sprites used for the virtual pets and related toys. The entries of each contest were reviewed by Watanabe Kenji (Hige Kenji), Kitagawara Meijin, Pile Volcano Ota and the webmaster, as well as the members of Digimon Web's community. Winning entries would eventually be adopted into official Digimon, though that has not been the case for all of those entries as of now. The respective applicants would also win prizes, namely Digimon Pendulum virtual pets.

1999 Contest[edit]

All of the seven winning entries of the 1999 contest have been made into official Digimon. The respective profiles in the Digimon Reference Book make no mention of the contest, though.

2000 Contest[edit]

The 2000 contest was divided into two categories with seven winning entries each, "Digimon" and "Digivice", referring to the different Digimon sprite sizes used for the virtual pets and the Digivice toys then.

Digimon Category[edit]

Entries in this category had the size of the sprites known from the original Digital Monster and Pendulum virtual pets. However, only two winning entries, Valkyrimon and Harimogemon (renamed Togemogumon), are confirmed to have been adopted into official Digimon. The contest and the applicant are referred to in the Digimon Reference Book profiles of Valkyrimon and Togemogumon.
