16th International George van Raemdonck Cartoon Contest, Boechout 2023, Belgium

16th International George van Raemdonck
Cartoon Contest, Boechout 2023, Belgium
Theme: Source 
Everything has its source. Of course, the sparkling water stream from which the broadly rippling river grows is a source, from which we can bottle refreshing spring water. However, the greatest artist of all would not be able to put a strip on his canvas without his source of inspiration. But scientists too know sources all too well: they have to write them down correctly in their citation (although this is a source of frustration for many). Problems are best tackled at the source, as I heard from a good source. And how do we solve this shortage of energy sources? What is the source of all evil? 
Making a cartoon with this theme does not seem a problem to us: a theme as a ‘source’ can only serve as a source of drawing pleasure. So let that ink squirt out of your nib, and good luck!

The color catalog of the International Cartoon Festival in Saitama 2022, Japan

Received today the color catalog of the International Cartoon Festival in Saitama, Japan. It was the 32nd year of the festival in 2022. I participated in the event with two cartoons of mine, one titled "Sharing food" on the theme of Kyousei which means "Symbiosis" and the second one of Free theme. Works on both themes by 38 Japanese and 46 foreign artists are included in the catalog of the exhibition that took place at Plaza North in November 2022. 
Saitama City is the place where Rakuten Kitazawa - the father of modern cartoon in Japan - spent his later years. The Saitama Municipal Cartoon Art Musem in the home to Kitazawa in his later years hold the Saitama-City Rakuten-Kitazawa Manga Awards competition each year. In 2022 they held the 37th edition and the winning cartoons are included in this collection book of "The Best Cartoons of Nippon" which are also displayed on the museum website here.
The standard A4-sized (21x29.7 cm) catalog of "The Best Cartoons of Nippon 2022" has 100 pages, over 70 of them covering the color and the monochrome cartoons participated in the festival and selected for the catalog. The remaining pages are the lists of the Japanese and the Foreign artists with their personal histories in both English and Japanese. With the help of this perfectly designed book of art, it is possible to compare the style and wit of the native and overseas manga/cartoon artists and enjoy the great humour in their works.
From Turkey are published the works of the following cartoonists in the catalog: Aşkın Ayrancıoğlu, Behiç Yalçın Ayrancıoğlu, Erdoğan Başol, Kamil Yavuz, Kemal Özyurt, Musa Gümüş, Seyit Saatçi, and Hüseyin Çakmak from Cyprus.

Denizli Metropolitan Municipality 3rd International Cartoon Contest 2023, Turkey

DENİZLİ METROPOLITAN MUNICIPALITY
3. INTERNATIONAL CARTOON CONTEST
SPECIFICATIONS 

Healthy Life and Sports
We all know that doing sports is a must if we want to stay healthy and live a healthy life. Both scientific data and the health-related situations we experience show how much a healthy life is connected with sports. 
Sports: Sports is the body’s protector against many diseases like cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, blood pressure, joint and muscle ailments, stress and depression. It contributes to many conditions, from increasing human energy and mobility to increasing body resistance, as well as supporting the treatments we receive. Scientific data has proven this. Therefore, doing sports regularly improves one's mood while also providing a long and healthy life. 
As Denizli Metropolitan Municipality, while contributing to modern urbanization, we also made great efforts to ensure a healthy urbanization. Nowadays, we know the importance of sports in order to stay healthy, to be protected from diseases and to regain the health that we have lost. We act with the awareness that we can provide a quality life to our people only if quality physical structuring is supported by parks, green areas, sports fields and sports venues. While creating professional sports facilities, implementing sportsman training projects, and providing free sustainable opportunities for our citizens to do sports, we are also building sports halls, sports fields, walking paths, swimming pools and increasing the number of them day by day. 
As I emphasized above, we know that a healthy life is possible with the sustainability of sports. The reason why we have determined the subject as "Healthy Life and Sports" is to bring this issue to the agenda again and to contribute to the awareness of our people. 
We wish success to all our artists by expressing our belief that you will help us with your interesting and original cartoons on this subject.
