“Dogma” writer-helmer Kevin Smith and “Dilbert” scribbler Scott Adams have been tapped judges of Playboy Magazine’s first animation contest.
Smith and Adams will single out the best cartoon — which can be submitted in all media formats, including videotape, the Internet’s Shockwave or Flash, and pen and ink — for a $25,000 grand prize and one-year contract to create more work for the mag.
Other judges include New Yorker cartoonist Gahan Wilson, Playboy cartoon editor Michelle Urry and its creative director, Jay Boersma.
“Playboy is known for its sophisticated, witty cartoons,” Urry said. “So whether macabre, or wacky the only requirement is that an entry must be original.”
The winning work, along with five honorable mentions, will be displayed in the magazine and at its site playboy.com.
All entries must be received by April 1. For info, visit the site or call (310) 247-2000.
