Fumetto Comic Festival Lucerne annually publishes a competition. It should offer comic creators the opportunity to face an international comparison and present it to the general public.
Competition topic 2020
All is networked!
We connect us with other people, the clima is linked with the whole globe and for some of us, the heating at home is connected with the cellphone. How we do get connected – no matter if voluntarily or unavoidably – is still individual at the moment. But how is that in the future: what is the benefit of more networking, where does this lead us to? What is the advantage, what are the risks? How do we handle networking in the future?
Draw us your comic, that includes the topic «networked» in any form.
