Comics Contest 2009


Yes indeedy, it’s time for our annual comics contest, which means this year might just be your chance at (regional) fame and (minuscule) fortune! Think you can do it? Think you have what it takes to transcribe your weird and/or funny and/or political brain to paper? Then the Scope’s Second Annual Comics Contest is for you. Submit five installments of your single-panel or multi-panel comic to us at:

c/o The Scope
P.O. Box 1044
St. John’s, NL
A1C 5M3

Entries must be stamped by the postman on or before Thursday, April 16, 2009. The winners—as decided by a judging panel of local cultural icons and assorted miscreants—will earn a paid, one-year run with The Scope (online and in print). First runner-up will win $100, and second runner-up will win $50. The winners and select submissions will get some exposure in our annual Comics Issue, slated for May 21.

The contest is open only to residents of Newfoundland and Labrador. The comics should be black and white only, and can be any shape, so long as they fit on an 8.5 x 11 page. Please don’t send originals because we can’t return them to you; good photocopies or files on CD are fine. Questions? E-mail No phone calls please.
