The Angoulême International Comics Festival (French: Festival international de la bande dessinée d'Angoulême) is the second largest comics festival in Europe after the Lucca Comics & Games in Italy, and the third biggest in the world after Lucca Comics & Games and the Comiket of Japan.[4][5][6] It has occurred every year since 1974 in Angoulême, France, in the month of January.

History[edit]

The Angoulême International Comics Festival was founded by French writers and editors Francis Groux (fr) and Jean Mardikian, and comics writer and scholar Claude Moliterni (fr).[7] Moliterni served as co-organizer of the festival through 2005.[7]

Attendance[edit]

More than 200,000 visitors[2][5] come each year to the fair, including between 6,000 and 7,000[8] professionals and 800 journalists.[4]

The attendance is generally difficult to estimate because the festival takes place all over the town, and is divided in many different areas that are not connected to each other directly.[9]

Official prizes[edit]

The four-day festival is notable for awarding several prestigious prizes in cartooning. The awards at Angoulême were originally called the Alfred awards, after the pet auk from Zig et Puce by Alain Saint-Ogan. In 1989, the name changed to the Alph-art awards, honoring the final, unfinished Tintin album by Hergé. In 2003, the Alph-art name was dropped, and they are now simply called "The Official Awards of the International Comics Festival" (le Palmarès Officiel du Festival international de la bande dessinée). In 2007, Lewis Trondheim (2006 Grand Prix winner) created a mascot for the festival, Le Fauve (The Wildcat), and since 2008 the prize winners have received wildcat statuettes, with the Best Album statuette coated in gold. Since this year, the award is called the fauve and the best album, the fauve d'or. The prizes were reorganized too, to create a pool of 40-60 albums, called "official selections," from which are awarded the "Best Album" prize, five "Angoulême Essentials," one "Revelation Essential" (given to rookie creators), and one Essential chosen by the public. The Heritage Essential (for reprinted material) and Youth Essential are selected from separate nominee pools.

Additionally, the Grand Prix de la ville d'Angoulême is awarded each year to a living creator honoring his/her lifetime achievement, and the Grand Prix winner becomes president of the next year's festival. Traditionally, the president heads the prize jury of the next year's festival, illustrates the festival poster, and is given an exhibition of his or her work. (So far, only one woman, Florence Cestac, has ever won the Grand Prix.)[10]

In 2015, the main prizes awarded were:

  • "Golden Wildcat" for best comic
  • Jury's choice – for a publication deserving of note, but which doesn't fit under any of the prize categories
  • Prize for a series – recognising the best series of which an installment has been released during the previous year
  • First comic book prize – awarded to a young author or one publishing their first comic
  • Inheritance prize – for a re-publishing or for the first edition of a work which is part of world comic inheritance.

Other prizes[edit]

  • Prize for School Comic
  • Prize for Young Talent (Prix Jeunes Talents)
  • Prize for Young Talent from the Region
  • "Strip" Prize
  • Prize of the Students of Poitou-Charentes (secondary school)
  • Prize of the Students of Angoulême (primary school)
  • Prize for Alternative Comics
  • Hippocampus Prize (for creators with disabilities)
