The contest is related to the most topical issue that is the Covid-19 virus.
The contest consists of making a comic where the participants will have to explain through the vignettes what Covid-19 is and how its transmission can be reduced. The way to make the comic is completely free, although a series of templates will be provided on the web that participants can use if they consider necessary.
