This fall LACMA will open Heroes and Villains: The Battle for Good in India’s Comics, an exhibition that will draw connections between ancient Indian epics and contemporary India’s booming comic book industry.

In conjunction with this show, we want to see your original storyline and characters for a superhero comic set in Los Angeles. Send your submissions, including a one-page synopsis of your storyline, character designs and/or storyboards to unframed@lacma.org by September 15, and we’ll post the best here on Unframed on October 19, the first week the show is open.

Send us your submissions in the following formats:

1. Word file or PDF for synopsis of storyline. No more than one page (about 250 words).

2. JPEG images for main character designs and individual storyboards, dimensions up to 800 x 1000 pixels. Individual JPEG files should be no larger than 1mb. Between 3 and 5 images total.
