Launched in 2016, the ELCAF x WeTransfer Award enables an artist in bringing a new project to life. ELCAF continually endeavours to put a spotlight on new works and find ways to support the individuals who form part of the vibrant community of comics, illustration and sequential art. The aim of the ELCAF x WeTransfer Award is to support the development of a publication idea and see it printed, published and promoted. This is an opportunity to be playful. To take a gamble with new ideas. To take an experiment to the extreme.
The grant is open to exhibitors that have been part of any edition of ELCAF and aims to encourage self-publishing. One successful applicant will receive £3,500 and support to transform their idea into a printed publication, document the process, and share it with audiences at ELCAF 2018. Unfortunately we cannot take submissions from artists who have not previously been, or will be a part of ELCAF.
ELCAF is taking place on June 16, 17 & 18 at the Round Chapel in East London.
