DENVER, March 22, 2015 – Are you a comic book aficionado or graphic novel guru? Do you spend your free time sketching caped crusaders, alien landscapes, giant robots, otherworldly creatures, and other kinds of super-powered art? Then you’re exactly who we want to submit to the first-ever Pop Culture Classroom Kids Comics Contest, which offers young artists the chance to show off their talents during Denver Comic Con 2015 and beyond!
Along with a pair of 3-day passes to Denver Comic Con 2015, contest winners will have their artwork prominently featured in the official DCC 2015 souvenir program and admired by thousands of Con attendees. Additional prizes include exhibition of artist’s work on the PCC website and a special meet-and-greet session with a professional kids comics artist.
