KIDS LOVE COMICS Day Comic Book Contest

And Don't Miss Kids Love Comics Day at the Whitaker Center

Are you an aspiring cartoonist? Do you have an idea that you know would make a great comic book? Kids Love Comics Day at Whitaker Center is your chance to get your work published!

What to do:

Bring a one-page sample (4 or more panels) of your story idea, along with a one-paragraph description of the rest of the story to Kids Love Comics Day at Whitaker Center on March 3rd 10am-3pm, AMP Grand Lobby (admission is free).

How the contest works:

Kids Love Comics members will review all submissions within 4 weeks and name winners in two categories:

  • Ages 13 & up
  • Ages 12 & under

One winner in each category will be contacted and announced on the Kids Love Comics website.

Winners will receive:

Kids Love Comics will publish one winning book in both categories, printing 100 copies of each book, and giving them to the winner to do sell or distribute as he or she wishes.

The winning books will debut at the Baltimore Comic-Con (September 8th & 9th). Winners are invited to appear at the Kids Love Comics booth and do a book signing at that show.

Winners will also have the opportunity to appear in the upcoming documentary Pure Imagination, which tells the story of where cartoonists get their ideas.

Nuts & bolts:

  • Completed stories cannot exceed 8 pages.
  • Only original material will be considered. No established and copyrighted stories or characters can be accepted (for example, we cannot publish a Superman or Spiderman comic, even if the story is original).
  • Material should be all-age appropriate.
  • Winning stories will be printed in black & white with a color cover.
  • Winners will be responsible for their own transportation and costs to attend Baltimore Comic-Con.
    (Attendance at Baltimore Comic-con is not mandatory).
  • Creators will retain all rights. Kids Love Comics will make no claims to copyright of stories or characters.
