Assalamu’alaykum everyone, the August 4-KOMA Contest has ended!
We have long been overdue with the deadline of the August 4-KOMA Contest (it was supposed to end on September 4th)
It’s a bit hard for us to end this contest… as we were actually hoping for more entries from everyone before ending this contest
(guess you were all probably a bit busy with life, as usual).
No worries though, we still got ONE amazing entry, Alhamdulillah.
Therefore, we would like to announce the sole entry and sole winner to Muslim-Manga’s 4-Koma contest
[This contest is being extended for one month.] InshaAllah we will see some nice entries ^_^
OK, we’re going to have our 4-Koma Contest now:
Draw a 4 panel comic (4-Koma or YonKoma) that tells a story of the general life of a Muslim. So the everyday life. Its pretty simple. You can make it funny, or you can make it serious. Its up to you. We will provide some example types of stories that you can choose from very soon, but you are welcome to be creative and come up with your own unique story. Each 4 panel page should be like a small story of it’s own. You can choose to make totally unrelated stories or you can make all the stories related. You can look at the link provided above for more information.
Traditional Yonkoma layout
The general Rules:
The goal is to create a more positive portrayal of Muslims, so anything that goes against this idea will not be accepted.
You will need 6 pages and 1 cover page.
Include MuslimManga.org in the corner of your cover page.
Avoid serious political messages, other than peace and love for everyone.
Don’t submit watermarked files to dA and email the original sized files, especially if you win, so we can print, translate, etc. if we choose to do so.
I might add some more rules if I forgot to write them, so check back.
1) A moment during Ramadhan
2) How a Muslim interacts with a non Muslim
3) A Muslim saving someone from a danger of some type. it might be real danger or it might be danger of failing a class. or something like that.
4) show a Muslim doing a kind deed
5) How do Muslims help the environment
6) Weird things people think about Muslims and how they might be untrue.
7) The types of Muslims you’ll meet on the road
8) What Muslims do in their free time
9) Your own idea
The aim of the contest and all these ideas are to somehow create a more accurate and positive image of Muslims. So choose a topic or idea that will help you achieve that goal.
