Halloween ComicFest is conducting “The Greatest Halloween Costume Contest Ever”, where participants take a picture in costume showcasing one of the 21 free Halloween ComicFest full-size or mini-comics and then upload their costume photos to be entered to win great prizes, including a Grand Prize of a $500 shopping spree at their local comic shop!
Starting October 1st through November 10th contestants can upload their photos and choose one of the five costume categories— Superhero/Comics, TV/Movie, Gamer, Horror and Original to enter.
How To Enter:
1. Contestants must get one of the 21 official Halloween ComicFest full-size or mini-comics.
2. Contestants must take a picture holding one of the Halloween ComicFest comics while in costume.
3. The photo must then be uploaded to the Halloween ComicFest website at (www.halloweencomicfest.com/costumecontest) and submitted into the appropriate costume category where it will be screened by the HCF staff to ensure the photo is appropriate and has a HCF comic included in the picture.
4. Photos can be submitted anytime they receive a Halloween ComicFest 2015 comic until 11:59PM on November 10th. From Tuesday, November 3rd until Tuesday November 10th at 11:59PM, fans will be able to vote on their favorite entries featured on the HCF website, ultimately helping decide a category winner. Two Grand Prize winners will be picked at random to receive a $500 shopping spree to their local comic shop and one adult and one child from each category will receive a $100 shopping spree. The adult and child who earn the most votes in their respective categories will receive a prize pack containing a variety of items from contest sponsors which include Action Lab, Aspen Comics, Chronicle Books, Dark Horse Comics, Diamond Select Toys, DK Publishing, Elephant Gun, Funimation, Funko, Gentle Giant, Giant Miscrobes, Goldibox, Kotobukiya, Mad Libs, Magnetic Press, Oni Press, Papercutz, Quirk Books, Scholastic, Storm King, ThreeZero, TopShelf, Trick or Treat Studios, Viz Media and Warpo.
This year $10,000 worth of prizes from our sponsors and comic shop gift certificates will be awarded to category and randomly selected winners. “This year we expect more participants for the contest as Halloween ComicFest takes place on Halloween, so if you’re already in costume when you go to a participating shop, get a free comic, and take a selfie or pose for a picture with your comic, you’re one step closer to entering the contest,” said Halloween ComicFest spokesperson Deborah Moreland. “Comic shops are packed with horror and scifi comics, graphic novels and other pop-culture merchandise making comic shops great Halloween destinations and on October 31st, they’ll be packed with customers picking up Halloween ComicFest comics in addition to having a fun experience all-around at their local comic shop. We look forward to seeing what people wear to win and the free comic they received this year!”
