We get inquiries all of the time about featuring yet unknown comics and while we would love to entertain all of that talent, it would be a disservice to choose one over another. So we thought of something to solve this little problem and put together a contest for aspiring web comic artists and writers.
Get Ready, Get Set…Draw!
Anyone with an original comic is free to enter the contest. We love comics of all shapes and sizes and so do our readers. This is a great opportunity for us and our readers to get turned on to some fresh raw talent. Everyone had to start somewhere, and a contest like this is as good as place to start as any.
We have a deep respect for all types of comics, from silly stick figures to detailed illustrations so draw to your hearts desire ‘cause we’re happy to showcase it all. With absolutely nothing off limits there are millions of possibilities for even the freshest of comics to consider.
We do have to insist that any work submitted is 100% original and non-commercial. That’s legal mumbo jumbo for don’t steal anyone else’s stuff, not even an idea, and don’t try and sell our readers something through your comic, subliminal or otherwise
Who’s Going to Vote?
We decided that to judge the amazing content that is sent to us daily, we needed a panel of judges that was full of talented and creative web comic creators, illustrators, writers and just plain fans. We searched high and low and far and wide for such a unique panel until we realized that we already had it right here. Our own readers will be the judge and jury for the contest and will have the chance to vote on the comics they believe show the most talent.
Besides artwork, the web comic judges are going to look at characters, story lines, witty one-liners, and funny punch lines. Creativity will also be considered along with whether the judges think that the web comic has what it takes to be around for a while.
We’ll separate the entries into different categories to make it fair and offer kudos to the top winners from across the board.
Speaking of the Prizes
You will definitely get acknowledgment from our entire community. Even if you don’t win, your comic is going to be seen by all of our readers. We have some other more tangible prizes in mind that need to be ironed out, but for now all we will say is that if you win, you’ll get a very, very, very big pat on the back and the respect and admiration of web comic fans from all over the world.
So What are You Waiting For?
You have been asking us for months to put your work out there for you so now here’s your chance. Give it your best shot and put your most creative ideas and images together for us to see. There’s nothing for you to lose, but you can win some fame and notoriety.
