As we reported earlier, Platinum Studios is searching for aspiring comic book writers and artists, and today the company has announced prizes for the top 50 entrants.  Topping the list are ten copies of Toon Boom Studio Express, Studio and Solo.  If you haven’t heard of Toon Boom software before, believe me it rocks.  In my other life covering the animation world, I’ve reported on Toon Boom products since its first release, and for those wanting to do their own animated series, this is a fairly inexpensive product to use.

Also joining the prize list is Planetwide Media’s Comic Book Creator Software for the Top 50 finalists, and Wacom who is awarding the Top 3 finalists with Intuos 3 tablets.

Sounds like a great group of prizes for those who enter the contest.  Remember you only have until Thursday May 31st, 2007 to enter.

For more information, be sure to visit and the Platinum Studios website.
