The lights are on
Capcom held a contest for Monster Hunter Tri in 2009 allowing fans to design a weapon, and it is doing it again for the upcoming Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate.
Fans/artists can submit their weapon designs to Capcom and a North/South American and European winner will be selected to have their weapon featured in the game. The weapon must fall into one of the game's 14 categories, must have a name, and can have a up to 100 word description associated with it, though a description is not required. Submissions will no longer be taken after the morning of May 5.
You can find all the details about the contest and how to enter by heading here.

Our TakeI like seeing these contests where fans are able to design elements of the game, but I'm always a little disappointed when they're not clearly defined as being user-created. Good luck to those who submit art!
