I linked you, would that be okay?

And by the way, is there any age limit to your contest?

"pwede po personal work ko and it would be scan in computer..."

YES. just follow instructions. It should be a filipino version of an existing foreign comic/game/literary character.

"And by the way, is there any age limit to your contest?"

No age limit requirement. Thanks for the link!

does it have to be an individual character or can it be a group of characters(ie JLA, Avengers, X-Men)
