The spring of new awards
In 2014 the five German-speaking cities of Berne, Zurich, Winterthur, St. Gallen and Lucerne will jointly award comic-grants for the first time. Eligible are authors who work either in classical or in experimental comics. A “main-grant” (30’000 CHF) and a “support-grant” (15’000 CHF) will be handed out to the winners.
The grants will be awarded during the international comic festival Fumetto April 5th to 13th in Lucerne.
For more on the grants and the participation requirements go to one of the city’s website.
