MTV Breaks (platform that offes budding creatives their first breaks – on a global scale) is searching for creative illustrators and colourists to translate the multi-award winning television drama, MTV Shuga into a unique and original comic book.
The new season of Shuga, set in South Africa and aptly titled MTV Shuga: Down South has reportedly, “taken SA by storm”. But, where’s the fun in a storm without special people?
That’s where talented blossoming talent comes in. If you’re South African, aged between 18-26, haven’t worked professionally as an illustrator before but got mad skills, this could be your big break.
All you need to do? Draw one of the MTV Shuga: Down South characters and upload it to Instagram, using the hashtag #MTVShugaComicBook (this is waaaay too long I’m afraid). Entries, however, close on June 8th, 2017.
Get your work chosen by the judges and you stand the chance to get your work produced on an original MTV Shuga comic. What’s more? Win and you’ll earn R5,000 ($388) towards your tuition. All this for your hard work and creative genius!
Picture Shango (the god of thunder and awesomeness) as the sore loser in a gaming duel against Obatala (the god of purity)! Now picture Obatala’s impassive face in stark contrast to Shango’s fuming visage coupled with childish outbursts (we all have that one friend who doesn’t take losses well). That delightful glee is what you’re served in Orisha Pikin, the newest title by Vortex Inc.
