Small Press Idol 2009
- Hi there! It's that time again, Small Press Idol is about to land.
This year, we have a number of guideline changes, based on contestant
suggestions and requests. But the big news this year is that we have
as co-sponsor for the contest, Haven Distribution...and together, the
Small Press Idol books will all be offered to comic shops for the
first time. We've also upped the cash payout this year for the winner
(we're STARTING at $200 this year, PLUS half of the entry fees), and
added pay-out potential for all Mysterious Visions appearances. The
dreaded Veto process has been completely changed, and the Judges will
now vote before a round begins, and we will give the projects the
chance to prove the judges wrong. Judges will not be able to move up
projects that didn't get enough votes to move on in a round.
So we'd like to invite everyone to come see this year's Idol Homepage
(which includes a new Idol Impact section which shows all of the books
that small press has helped launch over the years), we're expecting
this to be our biggest year ever. We're touting this year as "American
Idol, meets The Apprentice", so if you're an amateur comic creator -
and you want to get some real advice from Judges who know what it
takes to make it, test your meddle and make some great friends along
the way - Then Idol is here. Our 6th year! If you're just looking for
new and upcoming talent to check out, great! We'll have plenty of eye
candy for you as well.
If anyone has any questions, I'll be looking for them and be around to
