Puma and Comic Con Africa have announced a competition that will give aspiring artists and designers the chance to have their artwork produced on a limited edition Puma hoodie. It will be a small run of exclusive hoodies available at Comic Con Africa’s Online Con.
The competition is open to all artists and aspiring artists. Designs need to be a creative interpretation of fan art incorporating a facet of Comic Con Africa of your choice.
That could be your experience at the Con, a different take on the logo, your favourite fandom, or any small element of Comic Con Africa or pop culture that inspires you to get designing – as long as the design includes the words “Comic Con Africa”.
The winning design will be printed as a limited edition Puma hoodie that will be sold at Comic Con Africa’s Online Con.
The winner will be interviewed on their creative process and work on a panel with Puma, broadcast live on one of the Con’s free-to-access platforms.
They will also receive their own hoodie and major bragging rights, plus every fan at the Online Con will be able to see their winning design.
From the entries a shortlist will be selected, from which a representative from Puma South Africa and Comic Con Africa will judge and fans will have the opportunity to give their favourite a thumbs up on Comic Con Africa’s social media.
“We are so excited about the art challenge with Puma, a brand that believes in the community just as much as we do at Comic Con Africa.
This gives our fans and the Comic Con Africa community a chance to show their skills and to promote the amazing talent we have in Africa. We are excited to see what rising stars we have out there!” say Carla Massmann, Portfolio Director of Comic Con Africa.
