Snippet: National Comic Prize 2014 for “Blacksad 5: Amarillo”

Juan Díaz Canales (Madrid, 1972) and Juanjo Guarnido (Salobreña, Granada, 1967) were declared the winners of the Premio Nacional del Cómic 2014 [National Comic Prize] for their album Blacksad 5: Amarillo [Yellow].

It is one of a number of prizes, endowed with 20,000 EUR each, awarded by the Spanish ministry of culture; this year, already two of the laureates, Jordi Savall (music) and Isabel Steva Hernández, Colita (photography) have declined the prizes in protest of the Popular Party government’s cultural policy, which mainly consists of cutting funds for culture, e.g. the teaching of music in high school, etc.
