    Hey gang, just letting you know that we've narrowed down submissions quite a bit, which means this contest is basically out of my hands and in those of the higher-ups! It was really difficult narrowing things down, we had some serious talent from y'all this year. All of you should be very, very proud.

    Art this year was especially tough - we had a higher ratio of artists-writers than usual, and some spectacular talent submitted. I'm very curious to see who ends up winning, as there was a decent stack of people who, in my mind, were ready for consideration.

    It may be another month or two before any winners get announced, but those that have been selected will be contacted privately before the announcement.

    Hey Ryan,

    As I said in my previous post, the best way to succeed in this industry is persistence, so while it's a good idea to keep your ear to the ground to listen out for news on the next Talent Hunt, it's worth seeing what other opportunities are out there too.

    It's probably worth mentioning that British based 2000AD has open submissions until the 2nd of March - http://2000ad.com/submissions/

    2000AD is pretty tough, they're only interested in publishing truly original stories, and they've pretty much seen every story there is to tell. That said, it's a good exercise, submitting to a publisher and 2000AD is one of the few comics that has an open submissions policy..
    Seconded, but also - if you're UK based or able to get here - take a look at the artist and writer competitions they do at Thought Bubble each year, around September. For writers, there's a pitch session where you get a couple of minutes or less to give them your plot overview and then the panel pick a winner. The artists, they release a script online a few months before the convention which all entries must draw and a maximum of six finalists will go before a panel, with the winner drawing the story that won the writing pitch. So the prize for both is guaranteed paid work.

    I was lucky enough to win the art competition at the last event and now my professional comics debut will be out next month with them, so it's definitely worth considering!

    I've done the writing pitching session for the last couple of years. I've never won it, but you're right, it's a great opportunity. 2000AD does of course allow postal submissions as well (I believe that submissions are open until the beginning of March). However, I think you're much more likely to win if you go and pitch to them in person.

    They always pick a winner for each category at Thought Bubble, which means a writer and an artist are guaranteed to get published, which is pretty great.

    I've only learnt recently about this, but it may be of interest to those of you who already have some project underway: http://creatorsforcreators.org/2018-submission-open/
