CGC Trading Cards Accepting Submissions at Lake Como Comic Art Festival

Posted on 4/3/2023

CGC Trading Cards will accept submissions at Lake Como Comic Art Festival at the Villa Erba, in Cernobbio, Italy, on May 12-14, 2023.

Get your collection ready! Representatives from CGC Trading Cards® are excited to be accepting submissions and sharing information about CGC certification of pop culture collectibles at Lake Como Comic Art Festival May 12-14, 2023, at the Villa Erba, in Cernobbio, Italy.

The Lake Como Comic Art Festival is organized by the same team behind Big Wow Comic Fest in California and the Paris Comic Expo. The event highlights the finest comic book creators from around the globe, with no media or cosplay guests or vendors selling products irrelevant to the comic art industry. The event avoids the unfortunate trend of overpopulated conventions, which render panels and creators inaccessible. Instead, LCCAF is limiting ticket sales to preserve the fan-creator interaction of the past. Attendees can interact with their favorite creators in a more intimate setting.

Get your submission ready before dropping it off at the CGC booth to spend more time enjoying the show. Keep reading for step-by-step instructions.
