Heroes, Myths and Legends
Every culture has their own legends, heroes, villains, and fables. From the Epic of Gilgamesh, to the Thousand Paper Cranes, to the story of Little Red Riding Hood, there are an infinite number of stories to be told! This year's Open Build will bring these stories to life. We want you to pick your favourite story or character and create a display that showcases this idea. You are welcome to be as figurative or literal as you would like!
(A special thanks to Matt C. for the idea for the competition!)
Welcome to the 2023 Open Build!
There is no fee to enter; however, you must be attending Kelowna ComiCon to be eligible to win.
You can download an entry form here or pick one up at either Chibi’s Anime Goods and Collectibles in Kelowna or at the event.
Completed entries can be brought to Chibi's Anime Goods and Collectibles prior to August 19 or brought to the model build area at Kelowna ComiCon during the event.
The deadline for entry is August 19 at 12pm.
Voting will be done by attendees. All attendees will have a chance to view the entries and vote for their favourites. There will be no judging based on technical skill. Winners will be notified via their preferred method of contact no later than Friday, August 25.
Models can be picked up from 4-5pm on Sunday, August 20 at the event. Any models not picked up will be available for pickup at Chibi’s Anime Goods and Collectibles after August 21.
As this is a family friendly event, we ask that all models please be kept PG. We reserve the right to not display your model at the event if we believe your work to not be appropriate for all ages.
