Each year, Fumetto Comic Festival Lucerne holds this comic contest to give comic creators the opportunity to compare their work, present it to a broader public and to exchange views with others.
The theme of this year’s competition is "Bike".
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!
