Félicitations! Pupil Danaé Meyssignac-Pinango from the French S1 class of the European School Munich was awarded a prize at the school comic competition of the renowned Festival International de la Bande Dessinée d'Angoulême (International Comic Festival Angoulême). With her comic "La Lune sur Terre" (The Moon on Earth), she won a Petit Fauve de bronze, a bronze prize, in the category for 11- and 12-year-old students. This year, the international jury sent only one prize to a school in Germany, to the European School Munich.
The Angoulême Festival is Europe's largest and best-known comics festival. Many of today's professional comic authors were already awarded prizes at the school comic competition when they were still children and teenagers. The competition is under the patronage of the French Ministry of National Education and Youth and UNESCO. In addition to many French and Belgian pupils, many schools from all over the world take part in the competition. The ESM was involved this year with 48 entries from the pupils teacher Gaëlle Liedts' art classes.
The school management of the European School Munich is very pleased that francophone comic culture also has its place here and congratulates their student warmly on the award.
