And the WINNERS are…

After much deliberation we finally have the result of the second Philippine 24-hour Comic Book Challenge.

First of all, I would like to apologize to everyone for the delay. I know you guys have been waiting for the results for the longest time but the judges had a difficult time in choosing the winners. So much so that we had to call in a fourth judge, Carlo Vergara. Let me take this opportunity to thank Carlo for coming in and helping us out. It is much appreciated indeed.

And with that, on to the winners…

We would like to congratulate Kevin Justin Ang for bagging the Best Story prize with his comics, “Part of the Job” and Freely Abrigo who won the Best Art and the Grand Prize to boot for his comics, “Bakit?”

It was an amazing challenge with many of the participants coming up with awesome work despite the pressure.

One such work came to the attention of one of our judges, Gerry Alanguilan.

“Norby Ela's art still has a long way to go and did not score highly. However, his story is one of the highest ones I rated. I found it strangely affecting, not only because of the subject matter, but because of how it was written. It’s quiet, unforced and surprisingly convincing, free from bombast and hysterics. He almost made me believe he was reliving a memory, rather than simply imagining a story.”

We would like to thank everyone who participated in the challenge and took the time and effort to share with us all their stories and their art. We look forward to seeing you all again at the next 24-hour Comic Book Challenge.

To the participants, expect an e-mail from Johnny Danganan in your inbox and see you guys soon.
