Contest 2021:
Communities of the Future

Illustration by Federico Cacciapaglia

Send us your comics! This year we’d love to dive into your worlds and travel to the future together. What do the surroundings look like, how do we interact with one another? What are we experiencing together? What message would you like to send to our distant future? We’re looking forward to seeing your super-creative, wild ideas and well-made comicson this topic. Grab your pens, we’ll be expecting your submissions by July 16!

(Please note: since this year’s deadline lands in the middle of the summer holidays, it will be possible to submit your entries sooner via our website.)
