Comics Artist?

Tom’s Awards

Dear (never boring) comics creator!
As you already understand, you may be awarded in the Best Story, Best Graphics or Best Creative Approach specific sub-category. But there is a still chance to get the main Award, Best Comics Work, which is rewarded with 999 EUR. Sure, nothing more to say at this moment. Certainly, you’ll need to go through a couple of “here and there” clicks. But you should consider that you have a big chance to become a glocal comics hero of the decade!

Best Comics Work – main Award
This prize includes a financial reward of 999 EUR. Thomas Orrow will award the publisher’s prize personally.

Best Story / Best Graphics / Best Creative Approach – special Awards
These prizes include special non-financial rewards.


It’s up to you!
As an author (or team of authors) you may submit only one comic work, via the application form online (below). In any case use your English, please – we’re pretty cosmopolitan here! If your work contains text fields or speech balloons they must be in English language (EN lettering). A complete story in a given range is highly preferred, but also a compact snippet from a larger story is allowed. Submitted comics may already have been published. Please be cautious – your comics work may not be accepted if it is a part of book already submitted by a publisher within this competition! In case your comics work have already won some other great competitions, please submit a better one here. We believe you are as productive as creative, for sure!
