We continue our feature of comic stories in the Berlin subway screen program “Berliner Fenster”! Your story can be autobiographical or fictional, all styles are welcome.


You have to live in Berlin and must be able to issue us an invoice – for selected stories a fee of 200€ is paid

  • Send us your comic story in separate JPG files, in two versions: 800×600 pixels (for the subway) and 1600×1200 pixels (for the CIB website)
  • Send a title screen for the start and a credit screen to place at the end (with info on where to find your comics online)
  • At least 30pt font size – in the subway the stories are read from a distance of up to several meters – no text works fine too
  • Color or black+white, both are good
  • The story can have between 4-8 panels/screens, you should be able to read it comfortably in 40 seconds
    super tiny details aren’t recommended, see viewing distance
  • It’s good if the story works as a standalone
  • We prefer stories created for the Berliner Fenster format instead of using existing material
  • We prefer full stories to one-screen-gag cartoons
  • Stories will be broadcast in spring 2025, don’t relate to current events
  • Also mind that the story will be seen by children – no disturbing visual content please (violence, etc.)
  • In your email with the story, please include the full text of your story in a separate doc so that we can add alt-text to the comic on the website. please also include your pronouns and your Instagram username or website link

Feel free to check out some previously broadcast stories for inspiration and format

Send your story (or draft or questions) to berlinercomicfenster@gmail.com

Berliner Comic Fenster is supported by the Hauptstadtkulturfonds and by Berliner Fenster/Mcrud.
