To celebrate the announcement of Mythspace Volume 1 from Visprint, and the final appearance of the individual self-published issues at next month’s Summer Komikon, Team Mythspace will be running a few contests during the month of March, both as a way of thanking old readers and enticing new ones.
We’re starting two contests today, one for artists, and another for writers. We may have more in the offing later in the month, but these two require more prep-time. Also, we reserve the right to award more than one grand prize if we just can’t choose!
(1) To qualify as a winner in these contests, you’ll need to have liked the Mythspace page on Facebook or followed us on Twitter. (If you need to choose one over the other, the Facebook page is updated more frequently.) Social networks are the easiest way to reach our readers, so if you enjoy Mythspace enough to participate in these contests, we can assure you that you won’t regret adding/following us!
(2) Prizes will either be claimed at the Summer Komikon, or we’ll send them domestically via Xend. We can’t afford to ship to non-Philippine addresses, sorry!
(3) Deadline for submissions is midnight of April 7!
MYTHSPACE FAN ART CONTEST:
Pretty self-explanatory eh? Just draw your best fan art of a Mythspace character/characters/mecha/spaceship, using whatever medium you’d like, black and white, colored, heck even a sculpture if you’d like, and send it (or a link) to us/tag us on the Mythspace fanpage or Mythspace Twitter, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Best fan art takes home the grand prize! You can see some older pieces of fan art at our Facebook page.
Also: Please let us know if you’re okay with us including your submission in Mythspace volume 1, in case we have a fan art section.
Grand Prize: Complete set of available art prints at Summer Komikon 2014, and a copy of Exit Wounds by Rutu Modan, winner the 2008 Eisner Award for Best New Graphic Novel (read once, then shelved).
MYTHSPACE ESSAY CONTEST:
A discussion of something Mythspace related — a character, a moment, a theme — that you enjoyed, or made you think. This need not be a review, mind you, just a discussion. All we ask is that it be well thought-out, articulate, and at least 400 words. Just post it somewhere online — your blog, a Facebook note, a Goodreads review — nd send it (or a link) to us/tag us on the Mythspace fanpage or Mythspace Twitter, or email us at email@example.com. Best essay takes home the prizes!
Grand Prize: A physical copy of Wonderbook by Jeff Vandermeer, an excellent resource for world building (an extra, unused copy), and a complete set of available art prints at Summer Komikon 2014.
