OzComics 24-Hour Challenge 2006

Due to unprecedented media support from Australian and New Zealand based media outlets, last years 24-Hour Challenge “was the best we have had to date, with a 90% increase in registration, 50% increase in completed entries and an approximate 300% increase in the number of people accessing the site, we estimate that approximately 5000 people logged on to the web site during the Challenge” said Mark Selan (Event Organiser)

With the OzComics 24-Hour Challenge already internationally recognised as the largest event of its type in the world, it is anticipated that the 2006 Challenge will continue to grow in stature.

This Queens Birthday weekend (June 10-12) artists, animators, designers and illustrators from around Australia and the World will aim to produce a 24 page comic in 24 hours. That’s plotting, scripting, layouts, pencilling and lettering, in 24 hours, work that usually takes a month

Event Organiser Mark Selan commented “This event is open to everyone with a passion for the medium of comics or for just telling stories in interesting ways… and because it is a web based event anyone from rural or remote Australia will have the same opportunity as the metro areas to participate and in doing so show their talents to a wide audience”

The 24 Hour Challenge is Coordinated from an online HQ at participants will report on their progress in dedicated forums, posting work live to the web as it happens. Some participants will gather in small groups while some will choose to work alone. They will labour in a concentrated burst of creativity and productivity that is unique to this event.

The 24 Hour Challenge is recognised as one of the major opportunities for budding local artists, to "Get your foot in the door in the world of comics..." said Ben Howard (Publisher Phosphorescent Comics).
