I’ve been preparing an entry for a comics contest by the name of Tales From the Dispatch. My apologies for not bringing this to everyone’s attention sooner. I was informed about it when I was in the midst of my studies, so it was firmly in the back of my mind until recently.
Regardless, if anyone wants to submit a 6-12 page story for consideration, please be certain to do so. Submissions are all due by February 20th. Details are as follows:
We will be accepting short sequential art stories, either black and white or full color! We want stories between six to twelve pages, nothing more, nothing less. We are looking for unique stories that blow the minds of readers! We are looking for works that are immersive, character-driven, and most of all, a well-crafted story! Any genre will be accepted!
After the submission period, the judging process begins. Via the Indie Comix Dispatch website, readers will be able to vote for their favorite stories! Readers will be able to view sample pages from each story as well as it’s description and vote!
When all votes are tallied, a small judging panel consisting of members of Indie Comix Dispatch and SnowyWorks, will decide on the final 5 stories that will be included in the book!
The contest begins on November 20, 2020! Please read and carefully review the following submission guidelines.
All work will remain creator-owned.
Submissions may only be 6 to 12 pages in length.
We only want submissions that have not been previously published.
After the publication of Tales of the Dispatch, you’re welcome to republish or distribute your submission however you like (after all, it’s your creation!)
The final selected creators will be required to sign and date a publishing agreement which contains everything outlined here.
If selected your work will be published in digital format on the following platforms:
Drive Thru Comics
Please use the following template for your pages:
Full document size: 7 x 10.5
Resolution of 300 DPI
Acceptable file types: .PSD’s, .TIFFs
There will be no compensation if selected for inclusion in the final anthology. Free digital copies will be provided for all submitting creators. Indie Comix Dispatch and SnowyWorks are not seeking to profit off this endeavor. Any profits incurring from this book will be donated to The Comic Book Project
Please email your work to: email@example.com
Please include the following:
Location of the pages: either zipped, or share work via Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.
Include a description of the story. This is important as it will be used for the voting round
All names of creators & contact information of a point of contact person.
Bio’s of each creator and a 600×600 picture
We will create Bio’s on Comixology for you if you win!
Website links, or social media accounts you want referenced.
Note: Submission to this contest does not mean automatic inclusion in the anthology. Indie Comix Dispatch and SnowyWorks reserve the right to deny any submission that does not meet the above stated requirements.
