Comic Book Cover Competition 2023

Comic Book Cover Competition: Eco-Warrior Powers Up Tampines

We challenge you to create a comic book cover that will become the next comic collector’s item. The cover design must feature the comic character, the Eco-Warrior. His or her mission is to protect Tampines against climate change using one or more of the smart energy technologies.

The year is 2050, Tampines is a thriving Eco-Town committed to net zero carbon emission. To achieve this, the Eco-Warrior must protect Tampines from the potential harm of climate change. The Eco-Warrior is armed with smart energy technology. They are solar panels that harness energy, smart LED lights that manipulate light, cool paint that shields you from solar heat and electric vehicles that drive for miles on clean energy.
