CVHM Comics Competition

Since 2011, Malach Centre for Visual history holds a yearly competition for young comics authors. High school and elementary school students are given the opportunity to submit their pieces based on watching online-accessible interviews with Holocaust survivors from the USC SF Visual History Archive. Techniques used, format and length are left to the consideration and preference of the participants themselves. The best three pieces are subsequently awarded and exhibited online as well as physically in a gallery at the Institute of Formal and Applied Linguistics

Below, you can the winners for 2020/2021 awarded in two categories (click thumbnails to enlarge). Results of the previous years can be viewed in the Photos section.
