Call For Proposals Comics You Should Know
As in previous years selected comics, as well as being presented and exhibited during the Festival, will be reviewed by Andrea Plazzi , editor of Rat-Man .
A unique opportunity to have both an authoritative professional opinion and a prestigious review on your work!
We are looking for comics who know how to fully exploit the freedom given by not being included in a commercial circuit, and therefore possess at least one of these characteristics: originality in writing and / or in the drawings; weird or irreverent themes; humor and ability to surprise. The technical quality will be appreciated but not essential: we are not interested to set up a parade of talented painters, but a genius of self-produced shows that will make the audience of BMB laugh uproariously. The selecting jury, with unquestionable opinion , will choose the products which it believes best represent this idea.
As usual, registration is FREE.
It is possible to enroll more than one work per author.
There is no limit to the number of comic pages for each work, but during the Festival a maximum of 8 boards by author will be exhibited.
The works are full property of the author, which will allow the organizers of BMB to publish them on the website forever, and expose them in the local festival for the whole duration of the event.

- Preparing the English translation for comics
The bmb6 is international, and we chose to use English as the official language for a practical question. We suggest to directly submit a version of the work in English, but if this is not possible (for example if the lettering was an integral part of the design, or if the tables were not changed for some reason) it will be sufficient to send, together with the comic, a synoptic translation in PDF. With synoptic translation we mean a translation in which each page corresponds to a drawing sheet.
As an example:
- Prepare / PDF
For the exhibition taking place during the festival the comic sheets will be printed in A3 format, so a resolution of around 3500 x 4900 pixels (the measures of an A3_300 dpi) will be more than enough. There are no limits to that effect, but a lower resolution will result in a lower quality print and a higher one the risk of unnecessarily burdening the file.
- Register Comics
Once the user is registered and identified on the site (logged in) he will be able to see the form at Comics Submission
