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, 42 projects were submitted, 17 of them from the German-speaking part of Switzerland and 25 from the French-speaking. 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.
