Comics from Berlin on the passenger TV of the Berlin subways

We have a feature with comic stories from Berlin and about Berlin on the Berliner Fenster, the passenger television of the Berlin U-Bahn.

The Berliner Fenster U-Bahn passenger television has been a partner of ComicInvasion for years. The collaboration goes back to a comic project by CIB team member Marc Seestaedt, which was shown on passenger television for several years. The Berliner Fenster is a wonderful place to bring the possibilities of the comic medium to a wider audience and we are very pleased to be able to start this project.

Call BCF 2021

CIB wants your comics for the Berliner Fenster, season 3!
Deadline Jan 30th 2021!

We continue our feature in the subway screen program with comic stories from Berlin comic artists. No theme this time, stories can be autobiographical or fictional, all styles are welcome. Keep in mind tho that your story will be broadcast at some point in 2021, so it might be a good idea not to refer too much eg to current politics.

Format:

  1. send us your comic story in separate 800×600 pixels JPG or PNG files in 72dpi resolutionat least 30pt font size – in the subway the stories are read from a greater distance (up to several meters) than in a book. No text is fine too
  2. color or black+white, both are alright
  3. your story can have between 4-8 panels/screens, you should be able to read them comfortably in 40 seconds
  4. super tiny details aren’t recommended, see viewing distance
  5. it’s good if the story works as a standalone
  6. it’s OK to send in a comic that already exists which fits the format or you create a story for the Berliner Fenster
  7. we prefer full stories to one-screen-gag cartoons
  8. please 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 and/or where to buy your stuff)
  9. you can send in one or several stories for selection, although we usually screen one only per artist per year
  10. for selected stories, a fee of 100€ will be paid
  11. you need to be able to issue us an invoice!

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