2022 Marks Our 14th Annual Graphic Novel Making Contest
New this year is the Cosplay on Display Program! Get dressed up and snap a picture with your SJPL card. Then submit your picture to be featured during the Graphic Novel Making Contest Virtual Awards Ceremony and on BiblioBoard.
The Graphic Novel Making Contest (GNMC) was developed in 2008 as a teen program at a single branch library in recognition of growing interest in graphic novels and graphic arts. Inspired by participants’ enthusiasm and the quality of art, the contest grew into a system-wide annual tradition, open to participants of all ages. The contest concludes with an awards ceremony to celebrate the creative efforts of all participants, announce the contest winners, and offer inspirational messages from guest speakers in the comics industry.
