This year, ScottishPower Foundation, sponsor of the Wigtown Book Festival is challenging all 11- to 25-year olds in the Dumfries and Galloway area to channel their inner superhero and get creative.

 

As such, ScottishPower Foundation and Wigtown Book Festival are calling on all school teachers to encourage their pupils to take up the challenge!

 

Comic Generation asks young people of Dumfries and Galloway to sketch their own superhero and write a short storyline.

 

The competition has been extended and is now running until Sunday 9 November so ScottishPower Foundation and Wigtown Book Festival are encouraging young people to pick up their pens or pencils and start sketching!

 

Working in partnership with Hugh Bryden, a local publisher and teacher, 11- to 25- year olds are being asked to create a comic book character or superhero that has energy related powers, and incorporate this idea into a short storyline.

 

To enter into the competition and have the opportunity to win an Apple iPad Mini all they have to do is sketch a superhero and write a short storyline. Please visit www.stripecommunications.com/news/comicgeneration for information about how to enter.

 

The entries will then be judged by a panel including Hugh Bryden. 

 

The lucky winner will receive an Apple iPad Mini and could see their character brought to life by ScottishPower Foundation across its marketing materials. 

 

The competition will close at midnight on Sunday 9th November.
