The remainder of the Max And Moritz Prize winners were announced over the weekend at the Internationaler Comic Salon at Erlanger. Lorenzo Mattotti had been previously announced as the award's Lifetime Achievement winner. That awards program has been around since the mid-1980s, and awarded every two years when the festival was held.

Lifetime Achievement Award
* Lorenzo Mattotti

Best German Comic Artist
* Isabel Kreitz

Best German Comic Book
* Packeis, Simon Schwartz (Avant-Verlag)

Best International Comic Book
* Gaza, Joe Sacco, Translated By Christoph Schuler (Edition Moderne)

Best Comic Strip
* Schöne Töchter, Flix (Der Tagesspiegel)

Best Comic Book For Children
* Das Tapfere Prinzlein Und Die Sieben Zwergbären, Émile Bravo, Translated By Ulrich Pröfrock (Carlsen Verlag)

Best Student Comic Publication
* Ampel Magazin, Anja Wicki And Luca Bartulovic And Andreas Kiener (Hochschule Luzern -- Design & Kunst)

Special Jury Prize
* Rossi Schreiber

Audience Award
* Grablicht, Daniela Winkler (Droemer Knaur)

I'm always happy to see Joe Sacco's magnificent Gaza work recognized, and Lorenzo Mattotti is a singular comics-maker. Past winners of lifetime achievement recognitions from the program include Carl Barks, Robert Crumb and Moebius.
