BDFIL, in partnership with Caran d’Ache, recently has organised new edition of its BDFIL - Caran d'Ache Prize 2023 inviting emerging comic artists worldwide to participate.

The theme of the contest is "Eureka".

Each participant may enter one project only.

The jury, headed by a comic book artist, will be composed of a member of a museum, a specialized journalist, a publisher, a member of the University of Lausanne's Comics Study Group, a Caran d'Ache member and a festival representative. The jury will evaluate the respect of the conditions of the present rules, the originality as well as the particular qualities of the scenario (execution, cut-out, etc.) and the graphic design.
