Event: Comic Contest Results

The results are in! Today is the day all your hard work in the WAKFU Comic Contest pays off. So let’s announce the winners! Drum roll, please

The WAKFU Comic contest was created in the spirit of creativity and originality with a comic twist.

The contestants were given freedom as far as the execution of their art with only one real requirement: each comic must consist of four (4) panels (no more, no less).

Each entry was carefully considered and judged by a committee of nine WAKFU staff members (of both Square Enix and Ankama) who based their critiques on comedic quality, with extra consideration going to originality and creativity.

We are thrilled to say that we received many creative entries that went above and beyond and we are very pleased to be able to recognize the talent of our community! We would also like to thank all of you for participating in such a fun an expressive way to celebrate the spirit of WAKFU.

Let’s remind us of the treasures that await the winners of this contest:

I definitely had this feeling when I first started playing WAKFU and tried
obtaining seeds from those gobbals running around Incarnam.

“The artist’s rendition of the scene was very clean and cartoonish, making it visually
appealing and easy to grasp what was happening.

On the other hand, the comedic aspect was very simple, but the emotions drawn
into the comic itself was what pushed it over the top.”

“The flow of humor is in good rhythm reflecting the key characteristics of both iconic
classes in a very simple, yet effective, way. Plus, it’s always a good idea
to ‘let the Wo-er, I mean Iop win’ every once-in-awhile.”
