We are an indie festival-the work we choose will reflect that. It can be experimental, traditional, a mini-comic, a graphic novel, black and white, or full color. We don’t care-just be awesome. This must be a solo endeavor-not an anthology. Check out last year’s winner and runner’s up: http://shortrun.org/category/dash-grant/
We want to promote you and your work so you must be present at Short Run 2017 and your book must premiere at Short Run. Mentorship and printing your book cover at Fogland is optional. Your project must be a self-published work. You must be 18 years old or have parental approval. You will receive 50% of the funds upfront and 50% at Short Run.
Short Run Comix & Arts Festival takes place at Fisher Pavilion on Saturday, Nov. 4th, 2017.
