Each year, the Revelation awards emerging authors at the Quai des Bulles festival in Saint-Malo.
The winner receives prize money of €5,000, a filmed portrait broadcast on the Arte website and the ADAGP YouTube channel, and an exhibition of their work at ADAGP.
The Revelation is awarded in partnership with the festival Quai des bulles (Saint-Malo).
Quai des bulles aims to promote comics and projected images. As a literary event and association, it participates in the creation, artistic dissemination and promotion of comics in all their diversity and specificity to different audiences. Today, Quai des bulles welcomes nearly 40,000 visitors over 3 days.
