The advantages: why you should apply for the Wildcard

  • A real spark to launch your brand
  • Make valuable contacts in the industry
  • Meet customers and build awareness

The Wildcard winners

Winners of the German Wildcard 2019 were the Berlin activists behind the KIMBUK Festival and KIMI Seal. Their Children’s Book Festival and Children’s Book Seal recognise diversity and inclusion in children’s books. Of the international entries in 2019, the Canadian founders of Scenarex were the ones that convinced the jury. With Bookchain, they offer a blockchain-based method for securing the copyrights and distribution of e-books.
