Period: July and August, 2022

How to enter: Have a mnemonic (= easy way to remember) one of the hiragana or katakana characters? Go to Resources > Kana chart in renshuu's menu, then tap the brain icon for the character you want to write a mnemonic for!

Winners: The top 20 mnemonics (10 for hiragana, 10 for katakana) will be rewarded with a month of renshuu pro!

Details:

1. The winners will be chosen by the renshuu staff

2. If two or more mnemonics for a single character are overly similar, the one submitted earlier will be considered.

3. One person can win up to twice (two months).

What is a mnemonic?

A mnemonic is a memory device or trick used to help remember something. When it comes to Japanese characters, mnemonics often use the shapes found inside of the character to help the learner remember.

For the above example, the character り (ri) looks similar to a river (with the word 'river' containing the pronunciation 'ri').

**Entries in this thread will not be considered.** However, if you have a drawing you'd like to submit along with your submission, you can paste the image here (just make sure you entered the mnemonic on the Kana Chart page!)

(Not an image submission)

Are mnemonics that were added before the contest going to be part of it? Like, could they be the winner even though it’s before the contest was announced?

I can’t draw, but this is supposed to show ネ in the face of a cat/ネコ.

Ne looks like a tree with branches for me and someone is screaming at the tree with ねえ lol

A(nother) question for the contest:

Do suki points influence the winning mnemonics?

They may be considered, but only in a supporting manner, and not an overriding reason for something to be chosen.
