ScottishPower Foundation Comic Generation

ScottishPower Foundation Comic Generation

To celebrate ScottishPower Foundation’s sponsorship of this year’s Wigtown Book Festival, the Foundation is launching the Comic Generation competition. It is challenging all 11- to 25- year olds in Dumfries and Galloway to channel their inner superhero and get creative and be in with the chance of winning an Apple iPad mini.

If you want to enter, you only have to do two simple things:

1. Develop your own superhero with energy-related powers

2. Incorporate this superhero into a short story line

To help you out we have developed some examples below:

The only rules we have are that you submit a maximum of two A4 sheets and these must contain an illustration and name of your superhero, along with a description of their power and the story line. Please include your own name, age and postcode along with your entry.

Once you have created your superhero and story line, take a picture / scan your entry and send
