Good luck to all contestants and have fun!

1 || Can my submission be traditional instead of digital?
Of course! We encourage you guys to use any medium you want!

2 || Do all three words have to be used?
Yes they do. That's what makes this a challenge!

3 || I'm confused by the 780 px width. Can it be anything else?
Because the winning entries will be featured on our website and our default width size is 780 px, it is best if your submission is 780 px. If not, we will have to resize it or crop it for you.

4 || What is a visual story?
A visual story is the overarching term for manga, comics, flash comics, etc. It is anything that tells a story with pictures.

5 || Can the story have words?
Yes, you can include speech bubbles, sound effects, and whatever other creative ways to use words in your submission. (:
