Philippine International Comics Festival South East Asia Kommunity Anthology

The Philippine International Comics Festival has extended its Call for Entries for strips for its planned South East Asia Kommunity Anthology until 31st December 2023.

The PICOF team is asking comic creators from the South East Asia comics community to share an eight to 24 page one-shot comics that represents you, your culture, and your country.

“Include a ‘breakthrough’ moment – a topic, or theme, you want to break through, break away, or break free from,” they ask. “Let’s co-create a future where we are all equally important and celebrated as a comics creator from the SEA Kommunity.”
