At the Spring 2012 BCIC New Ventures Regional Competition award ceremony held in Kelowna Pixton Comics Inc. of Parksville BC was awarded first place and the grand prize of $30,000. Pixton have recently reached the finals of the BCIC New Ventures Province-wide competition and are gearing up for the finale of that event.
Pixton have created a website where users can make their own comics without having to draw. Kids use Pixton to tell jokes and to collaborate on stories. Students use Pixton to explain a scientific concept or to summarize a book chapter, instead of writing an essay. Adults make comics about political issues, and businesses create training materials and marketing messages. The comics can be shared at the click of a button via email, embed code, Facebook, Twitter and all of the usual social media routes.
