A WORD FROM THE JURY


001 Rec ZirijaThis festival above all presents an opportunity for gathering of the people that participate in various ways in the magic called the comics art. During the four-day socialization in the forms of panels, lectures and workshops, this relatively young, but worthwhile and creative discipline will be a cause for another holiday of art.
And this year, the number of participants at the contest followed the trends of the previous years. Therefore, 272 participants (112 from abroad and 160 from Serbia) sent 251 entries in total, from 32 countries, to the contest. For the first time, participants from Mexico and the Philipines appeared. Regarding the topics the authors dealt with, there were many comics inspired by historical themes and human sufferings. Also, there were many talented participants, starting with the youngest ones who, with their imaginative and mature expressions showed there are some future masters among them, via somewhat older authors who are in the process of creation of their own style, up to those who are established artists.

Dragana Stojiljković

The achievements of an artist do not devalue the efforts of his colleagues in a way it happens in sports. The authors are not competing with each other, but in the joint struggle for beauty. There are no losers, or champions in the fight; all are the winners. Not only those who create beauty, but also all of us who enjoy their works.
