What is the MoComCon Art Contest? 

Combine your love of art and fandoms by entering MoComCon’s 2024 art contest! Create artwork of your favorite character from any fandom, book, television show, movie, game, or invent your own original character!  

Art Contest will be split into three age groups: Child (5–12); Teen (13–17); Adult (18+).
