What is it?
Comikaze24 is Australia's 24 Hour Comic Day Challenge. It's based around the same idea as 24 Hours Comic Day but takes place over the long Queen's Birthday weekend, a date more amenable to Australian participants.
The Challenge is to create a comic in 24 hours, in whatever medium you're comfortable in. Use ink, computer graphics, paint, magazine photos, crayons; use paper, bristol board, wacom tablets - it doesn't matter.
What's it like?
Every year we have around 60-80 participants and some absolutely amazing stories keep coming out of the challenge. No. Seriously. Have a look for yourself! The site hosting the challenge (Pulp Faction) takes in anywhere from 170,000 to 200,000 page hits during the challenge period every year (sponsors, that means your banners were viewed approximately 22,000+ times during a normal event)! We hope this year's event will be even bigger.
How do I join in?
Whether you're in Australia or just wish you were, join us for the 24 Hour comics challenge Sat-Mon, Queen's Birthday weekend (8th to 10th of June 2013). Registration opens soon, but don't forget to sign up at the forums, hosted by Pulp Faction, at http://pulpfaction.net, before you register for the challenge. You need a forum account to participate and if you just want to watch, be sure to sign up so you can comment and cheer the participants on.
Do you have a web banner I can use to promote Comikaze24?
Each year we create a new banner. Here's this year's:
Or just add this to your page:
There's also a larger graphic for... whatever.
