BEGINNING in April, the European Commission began announcing the winners of its competition for comic artists to portray the European Union. The authors’ task was to answer in a one-page comic what it means to be a part of Europe. A total of 2,529 drawings from all EU countries were entered; Slovakia was represented by 185 authors.
In Slovakia, the winner was 17-year-old Andrej Čanecký from Stupava, followed by Sergej Pančák from Prešov and Andrej Kolenčík from Bratislava. Tomáš Lukačka of the Euromládež organisation said that the winner will get a stay in Brussels for the European awards event, the TASR newswire reported. Čanecký drew young people planting seeds in the various countries of the continent, from which the huge tree of Europe grew.
