For the record, here are the instructions that most artists seem to have ignored !
You can take part in the Just 1 Page magazine whether you are an established pro, a small-press star, someone attempting to make a break in the industry, an amateur, or a fan. You do not even have to be British or to be attending the Comics Expo. All you have to do is donate an actual paper-based page of comic art to benefit the UK's CHILDLINE charity. After struggling to keep track of all the artwork for auctioning, I really want you to send hard copies of your art this year.
Electronic coloured version of paper originals are allowed, but I must receive your paper version.
If you are a top professional then a signed print is acceptable.
Contributions can be a one-page strip, a convention sketch, a painting or a pin-up page whatever you can spare the time for. It does not have to be a new piece of art produced for this project.
A4 sized art is preferred (around 210mm x 297mm, US letter size = 8.5" x 11") but if you can also send an electronic scan 300dpi minimum quality then we can work with A3.
For more info on how to contribute art, buy a copy, or keep informed of the auctions, contact Adrian Brown firstname.lastname@example.org

Just 1 Page is a collaboration of artists and writers from the whole range of the comics community, focussing on, but not limited to British comics. Each contributor sends just one page featuring a character with a connection to the theme – these have been Heroes, British Comics, Team-ups and best battles and for 2006, the World (Cup). All contributors give their time and art free of charge.
The magazine contains pin-ups, strips and text articles - covering the whole range of comics from action to comedy, from sci-fi to soccer, from Spider-Man to Sid the Sexist, from Desperate Dan to Judge Dredd. And MANY MORE.
