Get Published! Pronto Comics’ Contest is Open to ALL!
Looking to be part of the next dynamic duo in independent publishing! Pronto Comics’ “Phrases-to-Pages” is the event for you. Aspiring creators pair up (or get paired-up) into teams of two; one writer and one artist. Teams work together to write and illustrate one comic book page based on the bolded phrase at the bottom of this page!
All winners will be featured in Pronto’s special Big Apple Con Edition comic book, which will be distributed to industry insiders. But wait, there’s more!

Second Place: Each team members gets a $25 gift card, a winner’s certificate, and a bundle pack of Pronto Comics.
Third Place: Each team members gets a $15 gift card, and a winner’s certificate.
