Comic Contest Submission Guidelines
Submission period: November 21, 2022 to March 20, 2023
Do you want to get published? Indie Comix Dispatch and SnowyWorks are teaming up again, and once again this year we have Lesser Known Comics as a sponsor! Together, we are putting together a brand new anthology book, and we are looking for up-and-coming creators to submit their short stories for inclusion in Tales of the Dispatch Volume 4.
We will be accepting short sequential art stories, either in black and white or in full color! We want stories between two to ten pages, nothing more, nothing less (no covers or publisher imprints please!) We are looking for unique stories that blow the minds of readers and are immersive, character-driven, and most of all, a well-crafted story! Any genre will be accepted!
After the submission period, the judging process begins via a special panel put together by Indie Comix Dispatch and SnowyWorks! Our panel of judges will sort through submissions and find the best of the best!
The contest begins on November 21, 2022! Please read and carefully review the following submission guidelines.
- All work will remain creator-owned.
- Submissions may only be 2 to 10 pages in length.
- We only want submissions that have not been previously published.
- After the publication of Tales of the Dispatch, you’re welcome to republish or distribute your submission however you like (after all, it’s your creation!)
- The final selected creators will be required to sign and date a publishing agreement that contains everything outlined here.
- If selected your work will be published in digital format on the following platforms:
- Google Play
- Drive Thru Comics
- Please use the following template for your pages:
- Full document size: 6.877 x 10.5

There will be no compensation if selected for inclusion in the final anthology. Free digital copies will be provided for all submitting creators.
