Call for participation: XXII PortoCartoon 2020, Portugal

XXII PortoCartoon 2020
Special Caricature Awards: Chico Buarque and Albert Eisntein

Dear Cartoonist, dear Friend,

From 2020 on, PortoCartoon will tune its main theme with major UN concerns for the next decade. The structuring themes of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will allow new humorous approaches.

For 2020 we chose SDGs 1, 2 and 10 for their thematic articulation: Eradicate Hunger and Poverty, Reduce Inequalities.

According to some statistics, half of the world's population is poor. Wealth is concentrated in very few people (82% of wealth is in the hands of 1%).
"Tax havens" remain a source of corruption and inequality. True (and curable) cancer of humanity!

Humor, as a rich instrument of democratic awareness, has a wide field of action in these times of greed, populism and fanaticism.

People deserve the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to be the regulatory document of the societies. PortoCartoon wants to contribute to this.

Following the line started in 2013, with the introduction of the Special Caricature Award at PortoCartoon, two great personalities were chosen to honor in 2020: the singer and writer Chico Buarque (Camões Prize 2019); and the Nobel Prize in Physics Albert Einstein. This choice is justified by the museum with the note that, in 1920, a wide spread of its famous Theory of Relativity began in the world press.

We would like to receive your most appreciated participation until: 31 January 2020

Greetings, with universal humor,

Luiz Humberto Marcos

The 7th KalDer Bursa Internatıonal Cartoon Contest 2020, Turkey

7th KalDer Bursa International Cartoon Contest
The Caricature Contest will be held with collaboration of KalDer Bursa Branch Office and Anadolu Karikaturculer Dernegi (Anatolian Caricaturists Society) for the 7th within the 18th Quality and Success Symposium which is going to take place in Bursa between 17th – 18th of April 2020.
1. Contest topic: "CHANGE IS IN THE ESSENCE
“It is not enough to know, it is necessary to think. Life is lived by looking forward, it can be understood by looking back," says, Sören Kierkegaard, Danish philosopher who lived in the 19th century.
The future is founded by progressive ideas, revolutionary discoveries and inventions. The owners of scientific knowledge apply it to life and reinforce it with technology. On the other hand, despite all these advances, we see that hunger, thirst, ignorance and poverty cannot be prevented in the vast majority of the world. The political arrangements put forward are not enough for humanity.
When we look at this picture, has ‘human’ been forgotten in the flow of life?
What should we remember for human understanding and happiness?
What should we look at to continue the journey of revealing the essence of human?
Is it possible to establish a social structure that can adapt with the new world of production and consumption?
What does it take to find our creative side without getting lost in the uniformity of life?
In line with this content, we organize our contest with the subject of “Change is in the Essence”.
2. Last date for application: 15 January 2020, Wednesday
3. The contest is receptive internationally for all amateur and professional caricaturists.
4. Application: Limited with three (3) caricatures, may be e-mailed to bursa@kalder.org in 300 dpi jpg format.

Objections will not be considered after these dates.
6. Competing caricatures may be printed and used in KalDer organisations (posters, books, albums, postcards, brochures, invitations, exhibitions, etc.) and published in internet environment. One of the artworks may be used as the main visual of the 18th Quality and Success Symposium which will be held in Bursa between 17th to 18th of April 2020.
