AWA Studios’ Kid-Friendly Manga Imprint Is Opening Submissions For Monster Makers
by Olly MacNamee
Remember that time we reported on AWA’s kid friendly Managa imprint, iPop? Well, it’s still alive and well and looking for new submissions from you!
iPop are looking for your childhood memories, and are willing to pay if they use them. Of courses in any talent search of this nature it comes with certain caveats. So, if your idea is picked up “AWA pays you $100 regardless of what you send, and $400 more if we ask you to do a second draft,” but “you grant a limited license for AWA to use the Memory any way we want to everywhere, forever.”
Here’s the summary of this new opportunity:
“We all can, somehow, recall certain childhood incidents and accidents with uncanny clarity. Some of these recollections we find ourselves recounting in words to anyone who will listen or reliving over and over in our minds eye. Do you have a memory that you would like to share with readers, in words or pictures?
If so, let’s make a deal that works like this:
– You write and or draw an account of the events (the “Memory”) – with complete creative freedom – just no lying.
– AWA pays you $100 regardless of what you send, and $400 more if we ask you to do a second draft.
– You grant a limited license for AWA to use the Memory any way we want to everywhere, forever
– You retain ownership of the Memory with no contractual restriction of your right to do whatever you want to do with whatever you sent to us everywhere forever.”
With the attached graphic image and video would suggest something involving monsters, and not childhood memories. But then, we all have stories of things that go bump in ten night, don’t we?
