3RD INTERNATIONAL CARTOON COMPETITION: DIOGENES OF SINOPE 2024
1- The competition is open to amateur and professional artists from all over the world.
2- The subject of the competition is determined as “No to Nuclear!”.
Sinop, which takes its name from the beautiful Sinope who made Zeus fall in love with her, is under a nuclear threat these days. Sinope's younger brother Diogenes is now looking for support for Sinop "against the nuclear power plant" instead of wandering around with a lantern during the day "looking for people". All over the world. Our expectation from cartoonists is to reflect the economic, ecological, vital and environmental harms of the nuclear power plants, a technology that will be abandoned in the near future.
