We want to first thank everyone who submitted to PCC’s first-ever Kids Comics Contest this year! We were thrilled by the response, with comics submitted on everything from Bigfoot to climate change, and we can’t wait to continue building on the contest’s success for Denver Pop Culture Con 2016. Yay comics!
After reading, admiring, and being inspired by the work by artists of all ages and from across the nation, we’re excited to announce our 2015 Kids Comics Contest WINNERS are:
Winner#1: Drew Arnold
Winner #2: Amanda Schroeder
Amanda is a sophomore in high school working towards a career in art.
Winner #3: Marin Stumpf
Marin is a Broadway nerd, growing up with influences from geek culture such as Marvel, Star Wars, and much more. She spends her time watching Disney movies and drawing her favorite barricade boys.
Along with their artistic talents, each of these young artists showed incredible creativity and self-expression in their submissions—revealing just how powerful and diverse comics can be. We are delighted to reward their hard work and ingenuity at DPCC 2015 and beyond!
In addition to a pair of 3-day passes to Denver Pop Culture Con 2015, these 3 lucky winners will have samples of their comics prominently featured in the official DPCC 2015 souvenir
program, where they’ll be admired by tens of thousands of Con attendees. Winners will also have complete versions of their work displayed on the PCC website. Plus, during the Con weekend, winners will attend a special meet-and-greet session with a professional kids comic artist.
Please join us in congratulating these talented winners, and keep an eye out for their work at DPCC 2015 and on popcultureclassroom.org in the near future.
