Top Cow Contest for Artists, the free online center for students to compete for cash and prizes has announced the addition of top comic publisher Top Cow as the newest corporate sponsor to the Studica Skills competitions. Top Cow is supplying $500 worth of in-demand graphic novel (volumes) as prizes for students in the Comic Book Design, Digital Sketching, and Wacom Intuos Sketching competitions.

Included in the prizes that Top Cow is providing for monthly student winners are top titles such as, “Tomb Raider”, “Witchblade”, and “The Darkness”, to name a few..

Frank Nanfara, President of Torcomp Studica, the parent company of Studica Skills, confirms that Studica Skills works only with companies that Studica knows to be in demand by the creative students who participate in the Studica Skills competitions. “We listen to what students are saying, and seek out partnerships with forward thinking partners like Top Cow who can help enhance the creativity of the students.”

With over fifty different competitions being offered, Studica Skills is an opportunity for students to demonstrate their creativity, talent, and skills. To optimize chances of winning cash and prizes, students are permitted up to three unique entries per competition, and are able to enter as many competitions as they choose.

The competitions run thru April 30, 2008, with over a quarter of a million dollars in cash and prizes being awarded to student competitors. Prizes awarded include cash, various software products, electronics, books, clothing, and even software licenses for the school of certain winners. In addition to the top three prize winners in each competition, competitions award monthly prizes via a lottery system where all entries have an equal chance of winning.

The Top 20 contestants from each competition are tallied based on a real time voting system. A team of judges examine the Top 20 entries and choose three overall winners from each competition. All of the Studica Skills competitions are 100% free to enter (and no purchase is required) and are open to all current students worldwide.
