Submission Guidelines for the "Work In Progress" Programme
Creator-owned content only. So no, your brilliant Spider-man / Saitama crossover story is not eligible. Only original, creator-owned material is eligible for this programme.
All submissions must include accompanying art. We get it, your script would make Aaron Sorkin weep in shame. Unfortunately, we don’t have the matchmaking capabilities. So you writers are going to have to go out there and make some artist friends!
Copyright. All discussions of ownership of intellectual property will be between the creator(s) and the publishers. Singapore Comic Con does not retain any copyright to submitted proposals. Always remember, “You gotta fight, for your right (to party!)
This programme is open to all, no matter which part of the world you are from.
All submissions must be in the English language.
