A big thank you goes to Matej Ilčík and his company Guerillacraft, which donated valuable prizes for this year’s best illustrator poll. The workshop by Spanish-Argentinian illustrator Darío Adanti and a round table on illustration and climate change, featuring Czech and Spanish artists, was organized in cooperation with the Cervantes Institute, which also supported the participation of representatives from the Irudika festival. Lastly, we thank paper supplier Papyrus, the Protisk print shop and Signpek, and David Půlpán. Furthermore, we’d like to thank the Holešovická tržnice, which took us under the wings of its premises this year, UMPRUM and Xao bookstore for taking care of the festival stand. And also thanks to all of you who support Czech illustration and comics, to those we meet at exhibitions and workshops, who buy beautiful books, and help keep this unique tradition alive!
