Dynamite Art Contest For Publication in Vampirella #2

Dynamite has announced on the back of their 100,000+ orders for Vampirella #1, that they are running an art contest, with the winner getting their Vampirella-related art published in Vampirella #2. The publisher states;

Artists are encouraged to create illustrations (or other visual media!) of Vampirella over the next 10 days to show off your art! They can then post them to Instagram, Twitter and Facebook with the hashtag #VampiFanArt and tagging Dynamite. Pieces will be reposted to Dynamite's Instagram for the whole community to enjoy. At the deadline of July 12, the Dynamite post with the most likes will be published in Vampirella #2 releasing in August. Artists are also welcome to depict other characters and elements of Vampirella's world, including Pantha, Adam Van Helsing, Pendragon, Evily, Draculina, Lilith and others.

How long before it gets pulled after being criticised as a way to get artists to create work for free? That's the usual form for this sort of endeavour, right? More details on Dynamite's website, apparently.
