The announcement of the winners of the eighth edition of the IoScrittore literary contest will be held on Saturday 18 November 2017 at 14.30 in the Viscontea Hall at the Sforzesco Castle during the event BookCity Milan. Among the several awards it has to be mentioned the Romics Award for the best comics genre novel. A further opportunity to underline the intention by Romics to firmly include novel as a part of the Festival program thanks to the versatility that has always characterized the main event of the sector in Rome.
"Romics with its particular Format has always underlined the versatility of creative arts and entertainment and expanded its cultural offering looking to the constantly increasing of productions and of an always more and more competent and enthusiastic audience. The Fantasy narrative and the writing and illustration for kids have become very important elements in the festival programme, with numerous guests, special activities and events organised together with the leading publishers of the sector.
With the collaboration of the publishing group Mauris Spagnol, Romics has instituted a truly original illustration contest with great public approval, The adventure of writing, connected to the prestigious literary contest IoScrittore, with the aim of selecting three illustrators who will work with Gems Group to the artistic enhancement and the promotion of the award-winning books.
Romics will also assign, among the finalist novels, a Romics Special Award."
These are the words of Sabrina Perucca, Artistic Director of Romics that will be present at the BookCity event dedicated to IoScrittore.
