Do you have an idea for a comic that would put Watchmen to shame? Or maybe you lie awake at night, dreaming up page layouts that would finally elevate comics to the level of “serious art”? Well, time to stop dreaming and make your comic a reality!

The Work In Progress (WIP) programme is a new initiative by Singapore Comic Con aimed at helping aspiring creators get published. Working together with Asiapac Books, Shogakukan Asia and Vividthree + Darkbox Studio, we want to help you get your comic out of your head and into the world.

You have till 10 November 2019 to send us your best pitch for a comic. Our committee of publishers will vet through all submissions and provide review notes. If your proposal makes the cut, they’ll meet up with you during SGCC for more in-depth talks.

A wise Jedi once said, “Do, or do not. There is no try.” So, here's your chance to do!
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.
All proposals must include the following:
