World TB Cup: Comic Book Competition

Posted on behalf of Vittorio Cammarota of the World Health Organization:
The Stop TB Partnership is producing a 16-page educational comic book that will provide key information about tuberculosis. The comic book will feature Mr. Figo as the main character and will target an audience of children and young adults. The objective is to reach these audiences through a reputable and appealing voice.

The educational comic book will be available in the six official UN languages (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian, and Spanish) plus Portuguese for distribution around the world. Plans are that famous writers or other personalities will write the adaptations in these languages. The educational comic book will be distributed in collaboration with other United Nations organizations and partners.

The Stop TB Partnership — with the support of [international] Partners [listed at the website] — is conducting an international competition to design images for the educational comic book on tuberculosis featuring Luis Figo.
Interested artists should visit this website for the competition's official rules and scripts in all seven languages. This looks like a worthy cause, and a great use of comics.
