In Hiatus Studios Presents: "Making Toast" Contest Submission Rules & Guidelines
In honor of the delicious delicacy that is TOAST, In Hiatus Studios is inviting eager artists to tell their own short comic stories about “Making Toast.”

These short tales should submitted as a 1-3 page story in sequential art (comic) form and should show off your most creative ways to use drama, intrigue, horror, mishaps…love … go wild and have fun with it, as long as the story follows the theme of “Making Toast.”

The In Hiatus Team will choose our favorite three submissions and announce the winners on February 23, 2019 (AKA National Toast Day!...see what we did there), which will then be published in our “Making Toast” Zine!

All submissions must meet the submission guidelines, or they may be deemed null and void.
