DB Schenker has joined up with Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport and YEAZ youth magazine to find your exciting story with a focus on logistics.
This is how the story starts:
ScanGirl takes a careful look around her as she places a barcode sticker next to the door of the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport motorhome used by professional drivers Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas. She doesn't want to be seen.
Let's hope ScanMan's barcode reader will be able to scan the sticker because ScanGirl and ScanMan – the mighty logistics duo – are on a very important mission. What's at stake? Nothing less than the new race car with a secret, special super-function for the upcoming Formula One season. Until now, ScanGirl and ScanMan have completed every mission successfully. But their enemy TimeWaster attempts to foil them – like when he tried to sabotage the races in which Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas were competing. ScanMan and ScanGirl want to prevent this by confusing TimeWaster, so they've split up this time …
Can ScanMan and ScanGirl succeed in their mission, or will TimeWaster learn the secret of the special function? Will ScanMan be able to locate the barcode sticker and find ScanGirl's trail? (photos of the winning comics)
Here´s what you can win:
A panel of judges will choose the bestentries.
The winner will join the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport team in 2018 at a Testing location. They will get to see Lewis Hamilton, Valtteri Bottas and the rest of the team in action in the paddock. Look carefully and you’ll also see the DB Schenker crew hard at work!
Second place will win a chance to participate in a professional comic workshop. While the third place entry will take away a brand new high-quality illustration set.
Think about all of the tasks, challenges, and careers encountered in the logistics sector and create your own one-page piece of comic book art.
