Shall I tell you a Comic Story?, is a Digital Comic Story Competition jointly organised by Singai Tamil Sangam (STS) and West Coast CC IAEC. OCKS 2022 introduces a form of storytelling rarely seen in Tamil media! Through the usage of modern technology such as Adobe After Effects, selected participants will have the opportunity to create digital comic strips in video format with Narration, Music, Animation & Sound effects. Moreover, participants stand to win attractive cash prizes!

Here is a link to the our very own Digital Comic trailer of our event to have a better understanding of the innovation that we are bringing to TLF 2022:

Since many students are afraid to do comic strips due to their lack of confidence in their artwork or drawing ability, they will be taught on how to take photographs with their smartphones and transform them into a comic artwork through simple filter adding applications! The students will be challenged to submit a story on the theme ‘Innovation’, the theme of TLF 2022!

The competition is open to students in 2 categories, Junior category (12-16 year olds) and Senior category (17-21 year olds). Participants are to form a team and submit a PDF file of a comic strip with pictures and speech bubbles using the guide provided to them. The top 3 scripts of each category will be selected to make a Comic Slideshow Video, with the help of our workshop conducted exclusively for the Finalists.

The virtual live event (with English subtitles) will showcase all 6 productions by the students and showcase the prize presentation ceremony. Hence, people all around Singapore regardless of their language can take a look at the comic stories that our Tamil students have to share!
