Europe Fast Forward – And the winner is…

Gruppenfoto JuryWith the jury session, the second edition of our International Comics Competition Animate Europe came to a close. This year’s topic was “Europe Fast Forward”. Out of the 60 entrants from 23 countries our expert jury selected seven finalists who finished an eight-page comic story on the future of Europe.

Now the jury has come together to select the winning story and appoint a winner. Is it the poem on the survival of past injuries by Bue Bredsdorff, the vision of Europe for citizens by Domingo Pozanco, the love story in times of climate change by Eva Hilhorst, the vision of Europe as an amusement park by Jenny Robins, the tale of tolerance by Maran Hrachyan, the story of a split-up by Nicole Knötig or the Sci-Fi utopia by Sara Ferreira and Gisela Martins?

If you can’t wait to find out, join us for our award ceremony at the Belgian Comic Strip Center on 14 October 2015.
