    The British Council and the Bengal Foundation are looking for innovative, cutting-edge graphic short-stories for an anthology to be published by Bengal Publications in November 2014, in time for the Hay Festival.

    It will look and feel like a comic, but they are encouraging story/short fiction told visually, addressing an issue or topic. The submissions must be related to the theme of the anthology, which will explore the topic of "Identity".

    The short story can be of 5-15 pages (Color / B&W). Paper size: 9” x 6” inches. Image format can be JPG or TIFF, not be greater than 10MB. One can submit a maximum of two graphic stories, but each story should be sent separately.

    All entrants will retain copyright over their entry(s).

    There is no entry fee.

    Open worldwide to cartoonists, artists and writers working in all genres.

    Prize


    All participants whose stories have been selected for publication will receive an honorarium. Moreover, the stories selected will be published in an anthology of graphic short-stories.
