Join Kansas City’s Mightiest Heroes and Most Vile Villains clash in a content creating frenzy! Join in the fun alongside other awesome KC Creators and Cosplayers in this eight week extravaganza brought to you by Planet ComicCon, ReRoll Tavern, Vignettes Cocktail Bar, Apparition Events and more awesome sponsors.
What is it?
The Comic Clash is an eight week mega game, incentivizing participants to win points for their team and personal prizes by posting up to once a day on Instagram and Facebook and supporting their team. Participants score 1 point for a simple post, 3 points for an image, 5 for posting a carousel, and 7 for posting a reel. They are then awarded bonus points based on a variety of factors detailed below and entered into daily drawings to win prizes from sponsoring businesses.
The main reason to participate in the ComicClash is to have fun! Reasons for participating may differ from participant to participant, but a few possible motivations for your heroism or villainy can be:
To help your team win the contest and the infinite bragging rights!
To win prizes from some of the coolest businesses in Kansas City, including gift cards, tickets to Planet ComicCon, themed swag, and more!
To gain visibility for your art, cosplay and creation. Participating businesses as well as the official ComicClash page will repost and share cool content, bringing more eyes to see your stuff!
As an excuse to make really cool stuff! If you’ve looked for a reason to upgrade your cosplay or paint a picture of a heroine – here it is!
The ComicClash will kick off officially on February 16th, reach its climax at ComicCon on March 19th, and conclude on April 8th. It will have three phases, during which points will be scored and then reset!
How to Participate:
Post publicly up to once a day on Instagram or Facebook with the hashtag #ComicClash and declare your support for either #KCVillains or #KCHeroes. We will respond to posts under these hashtags from our official ComicClash page with the amount of points that they score. If you have any questions email our contest officials at email@example.com
Bonus points will be awarded by the contest judges via the official ComicClash page. Throughout the contest, additional ways to earn bonus points will be revealed.
