Come one, come all, to Sci-toons, an all-Pakistan Science Comic Competition – the first of its kind in the country, brought to you by the National University of Science & Technology from February 18th-24th, 2012!
Young adults around the country now have the chance to participate in a unique blending of science and the arts. Participants from all four provinces are invited to try their hand at penning their very own comics, and maybe even taking home the grand prize.
What are we looking for? What will make your submission stand out? Sci-toons is an opportunity to unleash your inner Newton, and come up with a comic that is creative, unique, and informative – with a scientific angle. We want crazy mnemonic tongue twisters, we want ambitious bio-tech ventures, we want those shocking stories about Steve Jobs.
Joining in on the fun is incredibly easy. All you have to do is sign up by clicking here. There’s no hassle and no extra registration fees. Comics should be themed on one of the following: Science Mnemonics, Environment-friendly science, Apple Inc.
So why are we doing this? What’s the motivation behind it all? The Sci-toons initiative aims at encouraging young Pakistanis to pursue and develop an interest in the wonderful world of science, by promoting an awareness of the scientific community’s contribution to our daily lives. Sci-toons is just one of many ways that NSS brings science to you – one fun-filled event at a time.
NUST Science Society is supported in this endeavor by SPARK and Mark 92. To add even more excitement, the competitors’ final submissions will be judged by none other than the widely acclaimed social network comic gurus Kachee Goliyan Comics and Comics by Arslan.
And the cherry on top? The most innovative and inventive submissions will be awarded grand prizes totalling Rs. 10,000.
