The MiniComic Bursary for Black and Indigenous Creators is now open for submissions!
This annual bursary, which aims to support these under-represented voices in Canada’s comics industry, provides a $1000 to a Black or Indigenous person living in Canada for the creation and production of a mini-comic. This bursary is limited to developing and emerging creators but all ages and genders are welcome.
This year, we’re taking a new approach to our selection process: we’ve invited the last three bursary winners to select the 2023 recipient. We’re thrilled to announce that artists Talysha Bujold-Abu (@t.bujoldabu), Jazz Groden-Gilchrist (@thejazzwayillustration), and Jordanna George (@raebirdart) have all agreed to serve on this year’s jury.
How to Apply: To apply for the 2023 bursary, send 3-5 sample pages to firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline: December 31 2023
