The Fumetto International Comix Festival Lucerne is now accepting submissions for the 2019 International Comic Competition.

The theme of this year’s competition is “Bike”.  Why “Bike”?

We love our bike, cycle or two-wheeler. No matter what you call it, biking is the best way to get around: fast and flexible! We enjoy whizzing away feeling the wind in our faces – full of energy but emission-free. How do you think about that? Are you located in a bike paradise or fighting your way through the urban jungle, headed to Kilimanjaro or just to the next bakery – draw us your bike story!




Fumetto will award three prizes in each category. There will also be a prize for the best scenario, regardless of the categories. The festival‘s visitors will be able to vote for the peoples choice award.
