MTV Staying Alive Foundation and Nigerian publisher Kachifo are inviting young Nigerian artists and illustrators between the ages of 16-34 to hand in their designs for a comic book based on the Shuga TV series.
The designers have the task of developing storylines and characters from the youth, sex, health and relationships drama. This exciting opportunity will give a matchless platform for showcasing the best illustration and graphic design talent in Nigeria.
SO MTV says that if you think you have what it takes to turn this MTV Base TV series into a hot new comic book, email a full colour comic book sample (six pages maximum in Jpeg or PDF format), drawn to the downloadable script, omitting no part of the story, to [email protected]. File size must be 2MB or less. The submission must clearly state the name/s of entrant, current address, telephone number/s, and email address. Submissions may be made by single individuals or teams. A team should consist of no more than three persons. The deadline for submission is midnight on Tuesday, 13 August 2013. No entries submitted after this date will be considered.
The Shuga Comic Book will be published by Kachifo in January 2014.
