In the fall of 2004, Carrillo entered F Minus in the inaugural "mtvU Strips" contest, an online competition searching for the best college comic strip. The contest consisted of online voting (in which nearly 200,000 votes were cast), and was also judged by comic artists Scott Adams, creator of Dilbert, and David Rees, creator of Get Your War On. F Minus was chosen as the winner, and Tony Carrillo was awarded a development deal with United Media.
