What is KOMIKON?
KOMIKON 2005 : 1st Philippine Komiks Convention aims to bring together different comic book artists/groups and publishers in a venue where they could present their talents, works and services to the public and, most importantly, to aspiring comic artists. We would like to bring in different art groups and different generations of artists for a free exchange of ideas, break down stereotypes, and broaden the scope of comics – from international to local, sequential to strips, professional to amateur, and published to independent comics. We would also like to bring to people’s awareness the current state of the Philippine comics industry.
In one day, we will hold contests to encourage participation and draw in a large attendance of people. The area will be divided to hold an exhibit area, an area for contests, an area for exhibitors’ booths/tables, an area for sponsors, registration/information area.
