Spin Time

‘My Science Experiment’ theme for cartoon contest

by W. Winston Skinner

This year’s Spin Time Cartoon Strip Contest is taking a scientific turn.

The contest is sponsored by the Coweta Public Library System and the Moreland Cultural Arts Alliance. This is the second year for the contest, which is envisioned as being held annually.

“The theme for the cartoon strip contest is ‘My Science Experiment,’” said Marie Vielot, manager of the libraries in Grantville and Senoia. “This contest promotes creativity, the use of the imagination (and) writing skills.”

Entries may be by individuals or by a team. Teams can be school-based or just groups of friends.

“These teams may work on the entire strip or segments of it. For example, one part of a competing team may create the artwork while another creates the storyline content,” Vielot said.

Teams and individuals will be judged as separate categories. “All ages are welcome to compete,” Vielot said.

“Contestants must submit an original cartoon strip,” Vielot said. “The entry may not have been entered previously in any other contest.”

The strip may be up to 15 panels in length. Artwork may be black-and-white or color.

“The cartoon strip can be hand created or computer generated,” Vielot said. “Content must be family friendly.” Judges reserve the right to disqualify entries for inappropriate content including but not limited to nudity or profanity.

The deadline for entries is May 17. Entries may be sent to: Spin Time Cartoon Strip Contest, Grantville Library, 100 Park Drive Grantville, GA 30220 or via email to info@morelandadventure.com.

There will be prizes for first, second, and third place winners in individual and team categories. Winners will be announced at the Grantville Branch Library 2014 Summer Reading Program kickoff on June 4.

The kickoff event will start at 11 a.m.
