The 2nd ICC Comic Award, 2010, South Korea (click)

The 2nd ICC Comic Award, 2010

Call for Entries
The second ICC Comic Award with the theme of ‘the Rapprochement of Cultures’ is calling for entries. The selected works will be shown in South Korea, in September 2010. 

The year 2010 is designated as the International Year for the Rapprochement of Cultures by UNESCO and celebrated worldwide. The goal is to promote the world peace by encouraging the rapprochement among cultures, civilizations, and people, as well as by facilitating increased communication between civilizations through the emphasis on the importance of cultural diversity in the international community. The effort to familiarize with the culture of others’, to acknowledge them, and to create a society that diverse cultures coexist will make the world more peaceful and richer with culture.
Comic is an art form that touches our heart, transcending language and culture. It allows us to share various values and thoughts. It has the power to move people’s heart more easily than any other media on the global issues that require our attention. 
The second ICC Comic Award would like to call for an entry of comic art works that bridge the disparate cultures and bring them closer, and to show the works at the 11th International Comic Artist Conference held in Bucheon, Korea.
The Award has an ambition of presenting comic not only as an art form but also as a dynamic mean for contributing to the society. The International Comic Artist Conference urges you to join in the forum for the rapprochement of diverse cultures through the power of comic.
