Comix Competition (Int.)


The Fumetto Comix Competition is as old as Fumetto itself, it's what got the festival started. Today the competition is one of the biggest and most importantin Europe. Each year up to 1'000 people participate in three age categories starting at the age of 6.

The competition's theme this year is

Indulgence or addiction – once in a while, off and on, regularly, self-indugently...? What does indulgence mean to me? How much indulgence do I need? And do I want more and more of it? Do I still have the amount under control? When does indulgence turn into addiction? Do I indulge alone or together with others?

Partner: Federal Office of Public Health FOPH
