"Max und Moritz Award
The gala

Friday, 4 June 2010 is the date to remember: Who is the best German comic artist? Which book is the best German comic book? Who won the Audience Award? The “Max und Moritz” Prize – endowed by Bulls Press, Frankfurt a. M. – will be awarded for the 14th time by the city of Erlangen. This year, Denis Scheck and Hella von Sinnen will present the “Max und Moritz” gala together. Dr. Siegfried Balleis, the Lord Mayor of the City of Erlangen, will present the winners with the medals that were designed by Riccardo Rinaldi, the certificates and the Max and Moritz bread loaves during the festive ceremony. The show band “The Wright Thing” that was highly acclaimed two years ago will rock the Markgrafentheater again this year! The awards ceremony and the subsequent party in the theatre foyers are the highlights of the Erlangen International Comic Salon. The prize of the “Francomics!” competition that pupils from Bavaria and Berlin took part in will also be awarded during the “Max und Moritz” gala. The intercultural and educational project is a cooperation between the French embassy in Berlin and the Franco-German Institut Erlangen and is supported by the Robert Bosch Foundation and the publisher Cornelsen Verlag. Therefore the award-winning album will be translated into German.

Friday, 4 June 2010, 9 p.m. Markgrafentheater (Margrave’s Theatre), Theaterplatz 2, 91054 Erlangen
