The Fumetti in Treviso association announces the 5th International Contest for New Authors, which will be held as part of the Treviso Comic Book Festival 2016.
The theme of the contest is “PUNK!” and the works must be stories that are in any way related to the punk movement, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year and as such will be an integral part of the theme inspiring the next TCBF.
