Comic Con Africa in digital media partnership with TikTok

Comic Con Africa is proud to announce a digital media partnership with TikTok, the world's leading short video platform. In line with the partnership, Comic Con Africa has launched an official account on TikTok. 

As a platform that aims to inspire and enrich people’s lives, TikTok offers a home for creative expression and an experience that is genuine, joyful, and positive. Since its launch, TikTok has become the go-to destination for short videos with easy-to-use video-capturing and editing tools, as well as an intelligent discovery process that makes it easy to find and enjoy entertaining content that is unexpectedly personalised.

TikTok is a perfect fit for Comic Con Africa as the video medium allows for incredible visual creativity and lets everyone be a content creator for their chosen passions, be it cosplay, comic arts, or any chosen pop culture fandom. Comic Con Africa is about uniting fans across South Africa to share what they love with likeminded people.

From 6 to 12 September 2019, TikTok launched the #MyCharacter challenge for fans to create transformation videos ahead of the Con. A transformation video is when a content creator flips instantly between one look to another using a fun mechanic such as a snap of the fingers, or any other way their imaginations could dream up – the creative possibilities are endless with TikTok. We challenged Comic Con Africa fans to show us their character in the lead-up to the Con. A total of 10 winners were awarded with two weekend passes to Comic Con Africa. 

Check out some of the brilliant winning videos below!




In addition to the #MyCharacter challenge, TikTok will also launch a second challenge, #WoahTikTok challenge, from Sep 21 to Sep 27 and the on-site #WoahTikTok competition session will take place on the Main Stage on Sunday 22 September from 17h00-18h00. Come to the main stage, look for anyone wearing a TikTok t-shirt, and become a part of the TikTok creator community!

Comic Con Africa will be held from 21 - 24 September 2019, at Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand. Comic Con Africa is a multi-genre entertainment and comic convention that features comic books, games, arts, movies, pop culture elements and so much more.
