Held in conjunction with the launch of their Aficio SP 100e series black & white printer, Ricoh launched their ‘Make A Change In 100 Minutes’ comic contest on the 16th October 2012, combining the popular medium of comic books with the good intentions of Malaysians. This contest will run from 1 October to 9 December 2012 and is open to all Malaysians aged 16 and above.
To take part in this contest, participants are required to produce a comic strip detailing just how they would make a difference in 100 minutes, utilizing their own drawing style. Each entry must follow the theme of ‘Make A Change In 100 Minutes’. The comic must be a minimum of 10 comic panels in a single A4 page, must be in black & white and is required to be an original idea.
Participants are then required to submit their comic strip to the RICOH MALAYSIA (Official) Facebook Page by 31 October 2012. Technical details on submissions are listed on Ricoh’s Facebook page. Between 1 - 18 November 2012 the top 100 finalists receiving the most “Likes” from the public and Ricoh will proceed to the grand finale where their works will be displayed.
Comic strips that make it to the finale will undergo another voting session, where they will be judged by the public and a special guest judge. Prizes are impressive: The winner for the comic contest will walk away with RM 5,000 cash and an SP 100 SF e (print, scan, fax and photocopy functions), while the 1st runner up and 2nd runner up will take home RM 3,000 with an SP 100 SU e (print, copy and scan functions) and RM 1,500 with an SP 100 e (print function) respectively.
