The Reykjavík City Library and the Reykjavík School of Visual Arts, together with Nexus host an annual comics competition and exhibition for young people, age 10-20+.

The exhibition will open saturday april 30th, at 15, in the Reykjavík City Library, Tryggvagata 15. At the opening the winners of the competition will be awarded.

As usual the competition is dedicated to a comics caracter, and this year the theme is ‚Poison Ivy – dangerous women‘. 2016 marks the 50 years birthday of the famme fatale and eco-terrorist Poison Ivy, who has since 1966 kept Batman on his toes.

Please note that the stories should be no longer than two A4 pages or one A3, and also make sure to draw only on one side. We recommend that participants use quality paper, to prevent damage when the works are being mounted on the walls. The method is entirely free, and we welcome both stories and individual drawings related to the theme.

Due date is april 13, 2016, and the works should be handed in at the Reykjavík City Library, Tryggvagata 15, clearly marked „Poison Ivy 2016“. Please make sure to include full name, date of birth, phone number and e-mail.
