Romics Comics Books Contest 2018 - The Winners

 

The jury composed by Romano Montroni, President of  Cepell, Enrico Fornaroli, Director of Accademia delle Belle Arti of Bologna, comics expert and critic and Laura Scarpa, essayist and comic book illustrator, announced the winners of the Romics Comics Books Contest.

 

The close collaboration between  Romics and Cepell - Centro per il libro e la lettura, Istituto autonomo del Ministero dei Beni Culturali e delle Attività Culturali e del Turismo, led to the creation of the New Talents Award.  In this edition Cepell – as confirmation of the interest in enhancing the graphic novel – has provided a budget in favour  of the first, second and third classified of the New Talents Award for promoting their own works in some of the most important festivals of the sector.
