Through its continued sponsorship of the Wigtown Book Festival, the ScottishPower Foundation is proud to announce the return of Comic Generation, a literacy initiative for young people in Dumfries and Galloway.


Comic Generation is challenging secondary school pupils to get creative and develop their own superhero characters. However, this year, there will be not one, but three winners. The superhero creations will form the ‘Wigtown Avengers’. Each winner will also receive an iPad mini.


To enter, 11-18 year olds must submit a drawing with a short description and storyline of their own original superhero, who needs to have energy related powers.The closing date is Monday 26th October 2015. 


For some top comic drawing tips come along to Hugh’s Comic Commotion, with Hugh Bryden, taking place on Thursday 1st October at 6pm. Booking details can be found here.
