Each year, Fumetto – International Comix-Festival Lucerne holds a competition to give comic creators the opportunity to compare their work, present it to a broader public and to exchange views with others.

The competition's theme 2015 is

Hereafter – Fumetto is travelling to the distant future. What will our daily lives look like in times to come? Which ideas and inventions will influence us and what will remain the same for an eternity? How will scientific research shape our society and existence and impact what lies ahead?

Partner: SCNAT Swiss Academy of Sciences
