Create a comic book proposal from my non-fiction story idea.

Ringkasan Peraduan

What I want the winner(s) of this contest to do is create a visually compelling proposal for a comic book based on the attached story. Your contest entry MUST include a sketch of a scene from the story that has multiple panels (not just a book cover).

What I would like to see from you now as a contest entry is
1- some sample graphics based on the attached story,
2- a sense of how you might improve on the work (plot, characters, structure, title, etc.) and
3- an estimated timeline for you to complete a draft of the comic book art. Finally, the timeline should include a list of the key milestone deliveries for the project that will be used to ensure that we are managing from the same set of expectations.

I am on a mission to communicate how science can help schools achieve equity. Inspired by a simple graphic meme that infamously makes a visual distinction between equity and equality, I realized that while the meme had visual power it lacked a crucial element for becoming a useful tool. I first wrote a script as if I would do a talking head video. Next I created primitive storyboards to illustrate the ideas. Finally, I recognized that it lacked character and emotion so I wrote the first half again as a story. The attached document includes both the new story and the storyboard. I expect contest submissions to draw their subject matter from the attached documents.

I am going to fund the creation of the proposal directly through this contest and am considering either grant funding and/or crowdfunding the completion of the book. My goal is to have a physical prototype of a comic book in hand by the beginning of August in time for a conference where I will be meeting with potential funders. (If a full prototype by August is unrealistic let me know because I have no idea what’s realistic.)

#1 Contest Entry: Sample Scene Sketches, Your Ideas, plus Estimated Cost & Timeline to complete a full proposal. $500 prize (up to 3 winners)

#2 Proposal: Comic Book prototype to be completed by August 2021 (Compensation to be determined)

#3 Prototype: To be used for fundraising to complete the book (Compensation to be determined)

    Sorry for the confusion, but this contest has effectively ended. Customer Support reopened it without warning me in order to deal with an issue I brought up in spite of my request for a different kind of solution.

    Dear CH: question #1.- 1 page with 3 or 4 panels (each panel a complete scene or close up detail) like any comic would be fine? #2. That page in quick pencil sketch mode would be accepted as first entry? then refined to a more finished look depending on your feedback / rate in subsequent entry? #3. The $500 prize could be split in up to 3 winners? thanks :)

    I have updated the contest details to clarify the three components of an entry. If you do not include all three items then your submission will be rejected.

      EstebanSanchezMo, I upgraded to a locked contest so that submissions are private. Plus, I could not figure out how to write you with chat.
