We proudly announce that our fifth Animate Europe international comic competition is now open for submissions. If comics are your thing, and if you have something to say about Europe, this call is for you! This year our topic is Restart! – The Streets of Europe. The deadline is December 6, 2020.
Europe in times of coronavirus – captured in fourteen graphic stories
Since 2013, our Animate Europe comic competition has been a vivid platform for cultural and artistic approaches to and exchange on European realities. Amidst the current situation, we are launching a special Animate Europe project: Animating COVID-19.
In-between competitions (the next round of Animate Europe is scheduled for 2021), we asked seven of our previous finalists to capture their creative interpretations of fundamental European questions during the coronavirus pandemic in on-page comics.
FNF Europe’s top project, the comics exhibition „Animate Europe“ has made a stop at Schwarzenbach on Saale (Bavaria). Until April 2020 visitors can see the exhibition at the Erika Fuchs Haus – Museum für Comic und Sprachkunst.
