CALLING ALL ARTISTS FOR THE NEW NORTHERN SEQUENTIAL ART COMPETITION! by Travelling Man

We want to see your comic art!………… for the New NORTHERN SEQUENTIAL ART COMPETITION

Hosted by Travelling Man and Thought Bubble. The deadline is approaching fast so don’t miss out!
Entries need to be loaded on to flickr for the 18th October 2010. Please note this deadline has been extended.
 
Age groups 12 to 17 and 18+
 
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
 
 
The theme of this year’s competition is ‘November in the North of England’. Your story can be told with text and illustrations or by imagery alone. It must be a new, complete story with 6 panels or more and the page must contain the story’s title. Your page can be as wacky and creative as you wish, you can make the theme very prominent or just have a slogan on a t-shirt!
Finished work should be uploaded to our Flickr page here (Flickr is free to join, you win need to sign up to add work) or can be submitted as hard copy and sent to Thought Bubble (address on application form). Please note your story should be A3 and 300dpi in origin, (if you win we will need your story to be good enough quality to print), however to make it easier to upload your image on Flickr it can be much smaller. One entry per person.
All entries will be showcased in a digital exhibition at venues in Leeds and the surrounding area for a period of two weeks prior to Thought Bubble taking place.
The panel of judges (including 2000 AD Editor Matt Smith, Imagine FX Editor Claire Howlett and Marvel Spider-Man Editor Steve Wacker) will select two runners up and a winning entry from each age group, the overall winner in each category will receive £200 of graphic novels and a private tutorial with a leading writer or artist based in the North of England.
All 6 winning entrants will see their work published in a special Thought Bubble Free Comic Book Issue alongside incredible talent such as Charlie Adlard (The Walking Dead), Sean Phillips (Marvel Zombies), Duncan Fegredo (Hellboy), Andy Diggle (The Losers), Antony Johnston (Daredevil), Kieron Gillen (Thor), Mike Carey (Lucifer) and Marc Ellerby plus many more.
The winning story will also be published in Imagine FX.
The Free Comic Book Day comic book will be distributed around the world in May 2011 as part of Free Comic Book Day, a worldwide initiative to promote sequential art.
