Komikon Inc. brings you another comics overloaded event! Come to the KOMIKON INDIEKET on July 14, 2012 at the Hall A of the Bayanihan Center, Unilab Center in Pasig City from 10am – 7pm. This Independent Comics Market is a must to those who wish to join the October 2012 KOMIKON as Indie Tiangge sellers.

What is KOMIKON INDIEKET?

Komikon Indieket, the 1st Komikon Grand Independent Komiks Market will determine the independent groups and individuals that will make up the Komikon 2012 Indie Komiks Tiangge participants for this coming October 2012. Komikon will allow all qualified registrants to sell at the Indieket event on June 14 at Bayanihan Center. Only Indieket participants will be eligible for the 30 Indie Tiangge Slots for Komikon 2012. To determine what group or which individual will get the Indie Tiangge Slot we offer the following objectives.

Slots 1-10: Top 10 Indie Best Sellers are automatically in. This will be determined like the regular Komikon Indie Tiangge thru the 10% collection done before the end of the event.
Slots 11-15: Top 5 Ticket Sellers are automatically in. Groups and/or individual participants have the option to sell tickets for the Indieket event. In the event that one of the top 5 ticket sellers is part also of the top 10 Indie Best Seller, that individual or group will only get 1 slot and the remaining free slot would go to the succeeding Indie Best Seller after the top 10.
Slots 16-30: The next 15 slots will be determined thru a raffle draw which will be conducted before the event ends.
Komikon Indieket will also hold its own special awards for the participating Indie sellers. The awards include:

Best Independent Title
Best Cover
Best Promotion (online)
Best Booth Display (on site)
Most Promising New Creator
Best Independent Creator

Komikon wishes to thank everyone for making Komikon 2011 another success! Maraming maraming salamat sa mga minamahal nating artists, fans, exhibitors, sponsors, media partners, volunteers, family, friends, pets, etc.

We could not have done it without you. Seeing everyone's happy and satisfied faces pushes us to continue striving for a better Komikon. And we hope that our efforts would continue to motivate everyone to reach for our common goal of improving our Filipino komiks industry and sharing it with the rest of the world. Komikon's success is everyone's success.

However, Komikon regrets that there were some bad elements who took advantage of this joyous and jam-packed occasion. As much as possible, we want Komikon events to be as casual, comfortable and safe for everyone. Komikon will look into measures on how to address this.

Again, thank you very much for your continued support!
