Rules & Regulations
- All content must abide by racial, cultural & religious sensitivity as stipulated by Malaysian laws. Any offensive/pornographic/overtly violent content shall be rejected.
- The comic must only be done during the 24 hour the challenge commences. To quote Scott Mc Cloud: “That means everything: Story, finished art, lettering, color (if applicable), paste-up, everything. Once pen hits paper, the clock starts ticking. 24 hours later, the pen lifts off the paper, never to descend again. Even proofreading has to occur in the 24 hour period.”
- No sketches, designs, plot summaries or any other kind of direct preparation can precede the 24 hour period. Indirect preparation such as assembling tools, reference materials, food, music etc. is fine.
- Your pages can be in any size, on any material using any tools. It can be done digitally, so long as you provide the organizers with a printed copy before the 24 hour is up.
- The 24 hours are continuous. You can take a nap, but the clock keeps ticking. If you get to 24 hours and you’re not done, end it there. We are not doing the “Eastman variation” (ie. continuing even after the clock runs out) because we need to judge the comics at the end of the challenge. You are free to continue it afterwards when we are done evaluating your pages though.
- Stories must be original. Plagiarism of existing works will not be tolerated. Adaptations are fine, but does go against the creative spirit of the 24-Hour Comic Challenge.
- Artists will retain the copyright to their original work. The organisers reserve the use of some pages/panel for future promotional use with the consent of the original authors.
