Coast to Covid :(

Dear Drawers, dear Coaster
Unfortunately, as you all know, the coronavirus has upset our lives, stopped our walks, our paths but not our fantasy.
Many of you are locked in the house and all the initiatives that included gatherings are currently blocked and postponed until a later date.
So with extreme regret we have to announce that even our award ceremony scheduled for June 28 in Appignano will not be possible.
The prizes remain unchanged but with immense displeasure we will not be able to deliver them in person on that day of celebration as we had expected.
No longer having to organize the event, we, therefore, decided to give you some more time to receive your cartoons.
The deadline is therefore no longer 10 June but rather the: June 30, 2020
In the following days the jury will meet online and decide the winners who will be notified personally and the final ranking will be published on the website www.coastocomix.com and on the relevant Facebook page.
WE REPEAT: All cash and non-cash prizes specified in the announcement will be awarded and delivered.
Of course, the public prize for this first edition will unfortunately not be awarded.
Thanks, everyone for your understanding.
