About the event

The overwhelming success of our “Animate Europe” competition proves that artists have fascinating visions to share. In form of comic books, exhibitions and via the world wide web, our comics travel through Europe and overseas. They spark discussions and inspire people to get involved with Europe. In 2019, we launched a fourth “Animate Europe” competition round to get to know even more exciting stories. This year’s topic is "Animate Europe +" the "added value of the European Union". We were overwhelmed by the number of entries we received from 27 countries! Find out what vision our five finalists, for a strong and vivid Europe”!
