Komiks.dk has changed its name to Copenhagen Comics, and we want to make Copenhagen Comics bigger, more enjoyable and even wilder than Komiks.dk. But we cannot do it on our own, and therefore we need your help. See the poster for information on how you can become a part of the very first Copenhagen Comics festival. (in Danish)
Copenhagen International Comics Festival has a brand new name!
In many ways 2013 marks a fresh beginning for Copenhagen International Comics Festival, Komiks.dk. Which is why it will from now on be known simply as… Copenhagen Comics.
Since 2004 the Komiks.dk festival has been held bi-annually in ever growing venues around Copenhagen. We have expanded and tried to change with the times – always in order to put on the best show possible for enthusiastic lovers of comics, cartoons, manga and graphic novels. We are still evolving and so it is time for the festival to change its name. The festival took a break in 2012, but returns better and stronger in 2013 – with a new name and a new approach to things.
Copenhagen Comics is a name that in very simple and effective terms tells people what we feel the festival is all about. We hope you will embrace it and grow to love it like we do.
Just like Komiks.dk, Copenhagen Comics is a two day event with guests from all over the world, interviews, workshops, signings, panel discussions, lectures and fun for the whole family. Copenhagen Comics is the natural continuation of Komiks.dk.
Copenhagen Comics takes place on June 1st and June 2nd 2013, and we hope to see you all there!
You can find a temporary website for Copenhagen Comics here.
The Komiks.dk Award is now called the Ping Award
The award formerly known as the Komiks.dk Award will now be handed out every year – and not just at the bi-annual festival.
We have joined forces with Dansk Tegneserieråd (Danish Comics Association), The Storm
P Museum, The Animation Workshop, the online comics journal, Nummer9 and Danske
Tegneserieskabere to make sure that comics are celebrated and awarded properly every year and not
just every second year.
For some time now we have handed out awards as part of a special VIP-event at the festival, but
this year the ceremony takes place at the Lille Vega concert venue on February 28th 2012. The newly renamed award show will still be a part of the Komiks.dk Festival every second year and Komiks.dk remains a partner in the Ping Award.
We are looking forward to celebrating comics every year, and we hope to see all of you at the Ping Awards on February 28th.
You can see a list of all the nominees at the official website for the Ping Awards where you can also secure yourself a ticket for the event.
