Description
The “24h comics competition” emerges in parallel with the “24h architecture competition”.
With this competition we want to approach social and environmental issues that are pertinent and important to bring to public debate. The 24 hour deadline represents the urgency we have to act and to do something that can contribute to the greater good. The time limit is used to stimulate creativity. The participants have 24 hours to present their vision with a simple purpose: through a short story (illustration and script) they must address the edition theme with a critical and self-assessing view.
The participants must submit solutions and tackle specific problems in an intervention comics kind of way.
Do you accept the challenge?

Dumping, scarcity, droughts, shortages, and the need to survive raised thousands of people against a government that, at the expense of taxes, intended to turn land into money.
Favela ceased to be just a broad bean-shaped medicinal plant, which gave its name to the hill where it was born, to become what to this day still characterizes this life force that is conflicted daily between the desire to flee and to stay.
In the favela, fear faces security and insecurity defies trust.
A place where there are people, families and communities who carry their stories on their backs.
