I’m trying something new here. The first contest on the site! (Instant Rimshot)

You have here, a blank comic strip. You provide the dialogues and the best entry wins. You can send as many entries as you want. You can embed this comic in your blog, and invite YOUR readers to send in THEIR entries. The top 3 winning entries will be posted on the site as comic strips.

And what about the prize money, you may ask? Well, for starters I’ll send in a large print of YOUR comic with YOUR dialogues. (8x10in  but most probably larger, depending on logistics). There might also be a T-shirt or mousepad or coffee mug to be won, but that’ll directly depend on the state of the economy and whether I get a new year bonus. But forget the prizes, that’s not important (especially if you’re me).

So send in your dialogues. Mind the word limit, there’s always a shortage of real estate in comics. And if you like the idea, DO publicize it in your blogs, poke it to your Facebook friends, scrap in on your Orkut gang and spam email it to your contact list. Remember, it’s not spam if you know the guy!

Update: Deepak points out in the comments – “No software guy is submitting an entry till you give out a deadline”. So the deadline is Monday 22nd December.

Update 2: The contest is OVER! – Now time to judge people. Oh, it’ll be brutal… Results in a few days.

Update 3: The results are over here.

    @Akshay: Hey I got that too but just minimise your browser to the taskbar and get it back, it will be normal again..

    My problem is I simply cant submit! It says there is an error though nothing is highlighted and I think its all fine too..

    @akhshay, varun: Thanks for bringing this up. I’m fixing this. Will be done in 5 mins…

    Update: OK, fixed it. Also put in a backup link to open the same form in another window if the default one starts dying again. Sorry for the trouble.

    Sent my entry. Very sneaky Saad. Not only do you get a comic for free, you also get to blackmail us everytime we post a negative comment… “Oh yeah, you think that’s not funny, look at the shit you sent to me!”

    Saad Akhtar (Author) // December 19th, 2008 at 4:03 pm

    @gandalf: You uncovered my evil plot to reduce negative comments. My next contest is where readers get to send their naked photos to win T shirts. THEN we’ll have an end to those who say “This comic not too funny anymore…” type of things.

    How do I know if it got submitted ? It just got me back to the same page without any message or confirmation.
    I blame wordpress.
    P.S. : I cannot blame you coz you’re going to be the judge after all !
