Ricoh Malaysia is currently holding the Make a Change in 100 Minutes comic contest which is open to all Malaysians above 16 years of age and it is very much a story-telling contest through the use of comic art. The theme of the contest is as the name implies Make a Change in 100 Minutes and that must be the story told in the original comic strip submitted to participate.
Basically, the comic strip must include at least 10 comic panels and must be drawn in black and white onto an A4 paper. The ones selected will be exhibited at the finals and participants are required to send in their entries before the closing date. After that, between November 19th to 25th, the artworks will be on the Facebook page where the ones with the most Likes will enter the gradn finale which will then go through another voting level. This is where the public will choose their favourites as well as a special guest judge involved.
There will be the top 3 prizes where winners will take home Ricoh printers as well as cash prizes of RM5,000, RM3,000 and RM1,500 respectively. The participant with the highest votes will also be taking home a Ricoh CX4 camera.
