Since 1999, the festival has also featured the children’s comics competition. Its organizers and mentors are Danuta Waga and Robert Waga, the latter being also the winner of the very first festival’s competition for a short comics story in 1991. The children’s competition purpose is not only to enable the participants to get in touch with comics creators but also to aquaint them with this specific genre of artistic and literary form of expression, such as comics. They also have the opportunity to take part in various workshops, focusing on improving their comics language skills and artistic techniques.
