Several contests have appeared in Diamond Comics comics over the years. Contests generally entailed the comic reader completing a task, and posting in a reply/answer and posting it in to Diamond Comics publishers.

The Trip To Disneyland contest was published in Phantom comic book numbers 78, 79 and 80 by Diamond Comics in India in 1998. To enter the competition, the reader was required to create a poster on ‘Growing Up’. The entrant is required to creating a slogan for the poster and attach a 50 word essay explaining the poster.
