Hier der englische Text aus der E-Mail, in der BOLZANO zur Teilnahme am Wettbewerb auffordert:
"Bolzano Comics, a new contest is born!
In 2006 the Bolzano ShortFilmFestival <http://www.bolzanoshortfilmfestival.it> had a happy and interesting experience when it organised for the first time an exhibition called No Words Comics. In 2009 No Words Comics comes back as a new competition of the Festival, specifically targeted to comics without words.
The competition is open for comics with a maximum of 16 pages. The entries shall not make use of any written language for its storytelling, neither for dialogues nor captions, the only exception being the use of onomatopoeia to represent sounds and noises. The focus lays on stories what work in a purely visual way.
The interrelationship between cinema and comics is a very strong one. We can find numerous similarities in structure and artistic language. Since filmmakers and comic authors alike need knowledge of screenplay, editing and photography this will be an interesting platform for confrontation and dialogue between the media. Furthermore the link between these two worlds is strengthened by the fact that the Festival also offers a film competition targeted towards shorts without words.
Bolzano Comics is an event organised by the cultural association Cineclub Bolzano and by the Bolzano Comics Group. It’s supported by: Department for Italian Culture of the Autonomous Province of Bozen/Bolzano, the Cassa di Risparmio Foundation , by the region Trentino South Tyrol and by the Italian Culture Department of the city of Bolzano/Bozen.
