Comic Panel Industry Night is organized by Mustardseed Communications, organizers of the Lagos Comic Convention. It is a social hangout of fans and players in the creative arts industry in Nigeria. This includes the fields of Comics, Animation, Films, Virtual Reality and Gaming. This event is hosted in partnership with the Nigeria Film Corporation.
Event Highlight:

Mingle Session: this is where the attendees are encouraged to meet each other and industry entrepreneurs are networking with potential partners and clients or even investors.
Geek Attack: in this session, a creative work is being highlighted for it to be reviewed and critiqued by the attendees. This constructive analysis and criticism of the work will make the creator improve so that contents being put out from Nigeria can only get better and better till globally competitive arts become a regular from Nigerian artists.
Creator’s Spotlight: here, a creator of comics, film, game or animation is being spotlighted and his/her work is publicized and talked about. The creator talks of his/her journey to making the content and share the core lessons learnt in it.

Three comic creators compete each month for Unreleased Comic Book of the month. The audience gives their feedback to help the young creator make it better. In the end, the winning comic creator gets a chance to use the facilities and equipments in Spoof Animation studio to develop the comic book.

We pick an area of interest that is a going concern in the industry and deliberate on how best to tackle it. This is in the hope that solutions to these challenges like funding and talent development can be found.
