Dear comics lover,
May I draw your attention to ‘Brussels in Shorts’, a graphic short novel competition open to professional comics artists of all nationalities?
‘Brussels in Shorts’ would like to present the Belgian metropolis with new stories. Ten of the entries will be selected and their creators commissioned to complete short stories on contemporary Brussels in the graphic novel genre.
- The authors selected will receive a fee and accommodation in Brussels during the creation stages.
- The Oogachtend publishing company will publish the winning stories in a (Dutch language) album.
20 November 2013 is the deadline for applications to take part. A panel of experts will announce the winners on December 14, 2013, during the 20the edition of the Stripgidsfestival, the most important comics festival of Flanders. The winners selected will have time until the end of June 2014 to deliver the completed story.
