Summer Camp

© Carolina Cuenca

Driven by Comic Art Europe and coordinated by Escola Joso Barcelona, this Summer Camp project seeks to help young creators take a major step towards becoming professional, receiving invaluable training in aspects of the comic industry that an academic or self-taught education tends not to take into account and that the profession demands.

The Summer Camp aims to improve both the adaptation of the student’s abilities to the language of the environment, and to help them achieve their professional goals. A range of key factors will be considered: formats, publishing houses, target audiences and the idiosyncrasies of the American, European and Japanese markets. We will review both the mass comics industry and the independent sector and what you need to know about copyright issues, production systems, etc.

Do you plan to be a comics creator, have finished your studies and are considering turning professional?… Do you have doubts about how the publishing world works and you want to work in Europe?… Do you have a project you want to develop?… Don’t hesitate and join us this summer in Barcelona for this Summer Camp.


  • You must be between 18 and 25 years old
  • You must reside in the European Union (*see general condition)
  • You are not yet a professional comics creator
  • Self-taught creators are also welcome, it is not mandatory to be a former student
