Whatcomics 2018: Calling all teen artists. Submit your work by October 31

Teens, Get Your Artwork Published

Whatcomics is an annual publication that showcases teen artists and doodlers from Whatcom County. We want your creations, your jots, your carefully created pictures – whatever spins your creative wheel, we’d love to see it.

The Basics:

  • For teens in grades 6-12
  • Original artwork only – no characters from books, movies, games or shows
  • Up to 3 entries per person
  • 8.5 x 11 unlined paper only
  • No pencil
  • All levels of artwork welcomed

Entry Deadline: October 31, 2018

Starting Friday, September 1, 2018, drop your artwork off at any public library with an entry form attached. Entry forms can be picked up at the library, or you can print your own.

Wondering if your art will be in the book or not? You should hear from us in an email or phone message by Friday, December 7. If you haven’t heard from us by that date, please call us at (360) 305-3600 or stop by any branch.

Entries will become property of Whatcom County Library System and will not be returned. Pieces of a winning entry may be used rather than the whole. By submitting an entry, all artists grant permission to Whatcom County Library System to reproduce the image in library publications, website, and social media as well as in newspapers and television.

Prefer to email your submission?  Fill out the form below.

If accepted for publication, artists will receive a copy of Whatcomics and are invited to the Whatcomics Art Reception held in January at the Lynden Library.

Questions? Ask at your library by email at https://www.wcls.org/contact-us/
