Zimbabwe Comic Book Competition 2

Welcome to the second comic book competition in partnership with Bill Masuku, one of Zimbabwe’s most prolific active comic book artists. The objective of OTAKUKON x Bill Masuku Comic Book competitions is to support the growth of the Zimbabwe comic book industry through promotion of Zimbabwean stories.

We want to see more Zimbabwean comic book artists acknowledged on an African and global scale and that starts with getting more of our stories to local and international readers.

Comic Book Competition Information and Rules

The theme of the second comic book competition is Food! Fast food, traditional food, home-cooked food, that guilty late night snack.

We want you to craft a compelling story around food. While food is the central aspect, we still want you to develop characters and a believable setting that makes us want to turn the page.

The entry must be a 24 page black and white comic book and the deadline for submission December 22 2023. All submissions will be in digital formats.
