Mad Cave’s 7th Annual Talent Search Officially Opens!

The moment you’ve been patiently waiting for has arrived! We’re thrilled to announce that one of our favorite traditions, our annual talent search, has officially returned!

This year marks Mad Cave Studios‘ 7th annual talent search. With submissions open to creators all across the world, we are always blown away by the breadth of talent submitting. By running this talent search our goal is to give aspiring creators the opportunity that many people can only dream of; having their work published!

Mad Cave Talent Search 2024

This year Mad Cave is searching for two writers, two illustrators, two colorists, and two letterers to work on an upcoming project. This search is specifically for underrepresented talent with a unique voice that has never worked with or been distributed by a major publisher.

Each submission must be based on one of these Mad Cave titles to qualify:

Battlecats (Fantasy)
The Devil That Wears My Face (Horror)
Nottingham (Historical Fiction)
Hunt. Kill. Repeat. (Mythology)

Each creator may send one submission, but keep in mind that the project you could potentially be working on may or may not be set in the same universe as your submission.

*Note: To any artist who chooses to submit an entry for only Battlecats; any series that you may potentially be working on may or may not feature anthropomorphic creatures.

Only submissions that follow these guidelines, and are submitted through Mad Cave Studios’ 2024 Talent Search Submission Form, will be reviewed.
The contest begins in June 2024, and runs through August 2024. Each entry will be considered by members of our editorial team at Mad Cave Studios. The eight winners will be announced in September. To get started, visit
