The Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia awards creation grants for comics and graphic novels to Swiss creators of comics. The grants are awarded once a year following the recommendation of a jury and amount to 20’000 CHF.

This year, 33 projects were submitted, 8 of them from the German-speaking part of Switzerland, 23 from the French-speaking and 2 from the Italian-speaking part. The 8 projects selected by the specialist jury reflect the high quality and the diversity in terms of both content and style of comics created in Switzerland.

The following comics creators were awarded a creation grant in 2022:
