    Hi, I saw an article that said artists are to draw 5 pages, but the rules I downloaded said "pencil the script". I've already started with intention of producing the entire story but wanted clarification on the rules for artists?

    You are free to draw as many pages as you like, but there is the 10mb attachment size that you would need to take into account. You can always submit your five best pages and include a link of the entire story when you email your submission.

    After reading past Talent Hunt threads, it seems that writers were allowed to submit more than 1 original script. Is this the case for 2017? How many script submissions are permitted?

    Hello all, I am curious of one thing which I'm not sure about. I understand that artist should draw 5 pages. I am wondering if they should be 5 sequential pages or should we try and find the 5 pages that show the largest range of our ability?

    I'm aiming to do the whole strip as a completed comics better showcases my artwork and proves the ability to finish a script to a deadline.

    Jleemorris, In my experience publishers usually prefer to see pages in sequence as it shows that you can tell a story. For my submission I've chosen 5 sequential pages that contain at least one change of scene, and multiple characters in order to show a range of abilities. Thats just me though, would be interested to see what others think.

    @dgilbertson66: I asked this question to Matt Hawkins by twitter a couple of months ago. He replied to me that it's fine to submit more than one original script if I have more ideas.

    Hey, Just wanted to know how exact on the scrip do we have to be? Do we have to draw it panel for panel or say can we combine 2 panels?

    Thanks man! Also, just an fyi, I asked him on twitter what 1 piece of advice he would give to writers and he said "write a single character story about an emotional reaction"

    Hi I submitted as a writer and artist, but at separate times. I'm worried one of the submissions won't be looked at because they share the same email, is there something else I should do to make sure both my submissions are reviewed?

    Well, writers aren't allowed to post their scripts.
