The 2000 AD Artist and Writer Talent Searches Return

Do you have what it takes to be a 2000 AD creator?

The 2000 AD talent search is BACK at Thought Bubble Comic Convention 2024! The search for the next generation of talent offers the prize of paid work with 2000 AD, where legendary creators such as Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, Mark Millar, Jock, Brian Bolland, Frazer Irving, Charlie Adlard, and many more got their big break.

Previous winners like Rory McConville, Laura Bailey and Will Morris have all gone to regular work with the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic and beyond – and you could be joining them! Whether you’re into sci-fi, horror, fantasy or anything in between: everyone is welcome, and we’re especially looking for pitches from women and creators from marginalised communities.

Click the link below to find full details of how to enter – for writers, we’re looking for you to bring a pitch to the 2000 AD booth ahead of the judging session on Saturday 16th November; while for artists we have a trial Future Shocks comic script from the fantastic Ned Hartley for you to download and pencil, before bringing to our booth ahead of the judging session on Sunday 17th November.


Last year’s winning writer and artist, Ed Whiting and Sinu Senon, will both be published in 2000 AD Prog 2388, releasing on Wednesday 26th June! They’ve collaborated on a new Tharg’s Terror Tale called “The Essence of the Piece” – and we have an exclusive early look at the story below…

Full terms and conditions can be found on the Thought Bubble Festival website here, alongside details on how to enter. Good luck, Earthlets!
