MADCAVE Talent Search

Mad Cave’s 5th Annual Talent Search is underway! Submissions are now open to aspiring creators all across the globe to grant the opportunity of having their work published. Best of all, this is the first time that submissions are open for colorists and letterers!

Mad Cave is searching for two writers, two illustrators, two colorists, and two letterers to work on an upcoming project. This search is specifically for diverse, underrepresented talent with a unique voice that has never worked with or been distributed by a major publisher.

Each submission should be based on one of Mad Cave Studios’ titles: Battlecats, Honor and Curse, Nottingham, Stargazer, etc… Each creator can send one submission, but keep in mind that the project you could potentially be working on, may or may not be set in the same universe as your submission. Example: To any artist who chooses to submit an entry for only Battlecats; any series that you may potentially be working on may or may not feature anthropomorphic creatures.

The contest begins on May 1st, 2022, and runs through July 1st, 2022. Each entry will be considered by every member of our editorial team at Mad Cave Studios.


1) Each creator may submit one entry

2) You must submit through Mad Cave Studios’ 2022 Talent Search: Submission Form

3) Must be 18 years or older to enter

4) Submissions are only open from May 1st, 2022 through July 1st, 2022. Any submission received before or after will be disregarded.
