For the Comic Barcelona Grand Prize, in the first phase, comic professionals will be allowed to propose up to three comic authors (scriptwriter, cartoonist or colorist).

In the second phase, the jury will evaluate the entries, but they may add more in case it is deemed necessary for the final deliberation in order to fulfill the authorial requirements. The jury will choose the winning comic author for this award and the rest of the categories.


Once again, you are invited to participate in the Popular Vote Award to choose the best comic book published in Spain in 2023 and 2024, whether by a national or foreign author. The vote will only be valid if the Legal Deposit of the work corresponds to 2023 or 2024. This award has no economic endowment.
