During the delivery ceremony the mayor of Madrid, Manuela Carmena, promised that the call for this prize will be opened every year as it is necessary bet on the graphic novel that rescues "the expressive power" of the drawing.

"We are in a line of modernity, do not give up languages ​​that are necessary (like) poetry, music and drawing, and that is why we bet because there are many UCCI awards to these graphic novels, "he emphasized.
