Create a Comic Page
For this year’s annual competition, we’re challenging you to create an A4 page of comics. We’re not giving you any rules about how you create it. If you’re a talented cartoonist or painter, then show us what you can do. Not an artist? No problem. Some of the best comics use photos, collage or even stick figures (= simple pictures in which the head of a person is drawn as a circle and the body, arms, and legs are drawn as lines). You can do a single story across a dozen or so panels, you can do four short strips, or use any other format you like. Colour is better than black-and-white, but every entry will be considered.
The winning comics may be creative, interesting, funny, intelligent, silly, educational or thoughtful. Does it look good? Is it interesting to read? Both the quality of the artwork and the English will be important.
The winners will be announced in the May-June issue of Bridge and the best entries will be printed in the magazine.
- Your comics must fill a single A4 page and must include both images and text.
- For legal reasons, we can’t publish pictures or characters you don’t own – so don’t use Disney characters, for example.
