The 44th Italian Lies championship graphics section contest dedicated to Lie 2020, Italy

The Italian Championship of Lies was born in 1966. The reasons that led to the creation of this competition are to be found in the traditions of our little village over the Pistoia’s mountains, on the Italian Apennines, when in last century people used to meet in front of a fireplace to tell stories that mixed reality and fictious. The Italian Lie Academy, in occasion of the 44th Italian Lies championship, declares the graphics section contest dedicated to Lie.
This year theme is:
Fables and Lies
Traditional fairy tales-tales-tales revised in a liar tone.
1. The competition is structured in a single section.
2. Participation is free. Deadline for cartoon submission is Wednesday, 1st July 2020. Each participant can send up to 2 cartoons.
3. The entry form below (also in PDF on source: labugia) must be completed in all its parts and sent along with the presentation of the works that take part in the competition.
4. The paper must be sent by postal mail to: Accademia della Bugia - Pro Loco Alta valle del Reno, via della chiesa, 27 - 51100 Le Piastre PT, Italy. Otherwise you can use our electronic mail address: accademiabugia@gmail.com
5. The comics can be written in italian or in english, but we advice that you can make a cartoon simply draw, without any text.
6. Italian Lie Academy will award the top three as follows: 1st place: "Gold Bugiardino". 2nd: "Silver Bugiardino". 3rd: "Bronze Bugiardino". The Bugiardino is the symbol made in resin of the Championship and is the bell tower of the village with a long nose, like the Pinocchio’s one.
It will be awarded with the "International Bugiardino" the best cartoon coming from abroad or drawn by a foreign national.
7. All the winning cartoons will be published on the website of the Italian championship of Lies (www.labugia.it).

10. The works will be judged by a jury headed by the italian cartoonist Marco Fusi.


Catalog of the 11th Salão Medplan de Humor 2019, Brazil

Received yesterday the color catalog of the 11th Salão Medplan de Humor 2019, Brazil + the 2020 calendar showing the awarded works in the event. The book is 20.8 cm x 30.7 cm in size and arrived a bit damaged in the post which is no surprise nowadays! It has 80 pages and contains the awarded + selected cartoons of  the 11th Salon with theme Narcissism.
The awarded + selected works in the Caricature section are also included in the catalog in 18 pages, each with 3 portraits on average. There are the awarded + selected works in the Comic Strip section in 6 pages. Yet not finished: in the following 5 pages are the awarded + selected works by young cartoonists that took part in the 2nd Salãozinho Medplan de Humor 2019. Totally are 216 cartoons/caricatures covered in this great catalog.
It is noted that they received 1.445 artworks from 41 countries mostly via internet I suppose. While this helps more artists to participate, it might have some negative consequences: The files of some cartoons are of less weight so that they are not clear enough on the printed page. This is obvious in the Honorable Mention winning charge in the event: the contour lines are all blurred. Some other works in the catalog also lost some effect due to this technical matter. This makes one contemplate on why some organizations still insist on accepting only original works, or some offer the prizes only if the originals are sent to the organization after the prizes are awarded to the electronically sent in works.
Engin Selçuk, Menekşe Çam, and Oğuz Gürel are the cartoonists from Turkey whose works are published in the catalog.
Possibly because this event was announced through some emphasis on taking a selfie, there are a lot of works depicting the act. And that is the reality of these days of course. But the theme was Narcissism which has never needed a cell phone to manifest itself. The 1st Prize winning charge by Rafael Corrêa shows one of such instances and deserves the front cover page as well (Top).
Thank you to the organizers, esp. Welington Teixeira de Araújo Júnior, for sending me this super collection of international humor.

20th World Press Freedom International Editorial Cartoon Competition 2020, Canada

20th World Press Freedom International Editorial Cartoon Competition
(Theme and Regulations)
1. The theme for the 20th International Editorial Cartoon Competition is:
Pulling the plug on social media
After a storm over the publication of a cartoon deemed anti-Semitic, the New York Times stopped publishing editorial cartoons in their international publication.
In August, India stripped Kashmir of its constitutional autonomy and isolated it from the world by cutting it off from the Internet.
Thirty years after the fact, the Chinese are still kept in the dark about the Tiananmen Square massacres.
Iran can claim, without risk of contradiction, that its response to the attack on General Soleimani killed 80 American soldiers.
Increasingly, we see that the powers in place do not suffer contradiction.
2. Three prizes will be awarded: a first prize of $1500 plus a Certificate from Canadian UNESCO, a second prize of $750 and a third prize of $500. All sums are in Canadian dollars. Ten additional cartoons will receive an ‘Award of Excellence.’ Regrettably no financial remuneration accompanies the Awards of Excellence.

The 7th Biennial of Humor "Luis d'Oliveira Guimarães", Penela 2020, Portugal

One Organization: Penela City Council / Junta de Freguesia do Espinhal / Oliveira Guimarães House Museum
With the support of Luiz d´Oliveira Guimarães Foundation
A Production: Humorgrafe - Artistic Director: Osvaldo Macedo de Sousa (humorgrafe.oms@gmail.com)
The Biennial where humor needs no color, just a smile, philosophical intelligence and a simple, direct color - black and white and its nuances.
1 - Theme: Laugh with and at Health (Human and systems)
a) Health is something that worries us daily, and although we say that we are looking good, we rarely complain about it, but about other ailments, such as empty pockets to pay the doctor, IDP (age) social colds … Health is something more complicated than in the times of our grandmothers' little ones. Today it is a game of balances, not just physical, energetic or spiritual, as a field of economic battles in the pharmaceutical universe, of confrontations between said conventional medicines with traditional or alternative medicines, as if life had a healthy and unhealthy alternation. We cannot forget that side of alchemy / magic that has accompanied the evolution of humanity and reflecting the color, diversity, life of each culture and each people. Since the dawn of humanity, man has been looking for ways in nature (physical and chemical) to maintain the healthy balance of being. Shamans, druids, healers, physicists, herbalists, pharmacists, doctors… yes, we live in an era of the global village, but at this moment it is more important to demonstrate the diversity, the identity of each people, each culture that makes humor with the generalist banality of the universe. We would like your drawings to also show a little of your culture, your diversity in health and medicine.
To speak of health is to speak of man or humanity? Are the symptoms of illness the same or disparate? Can there be a healthy humanity with sick beings or healthy men in a sick society? Are governments really willing to have a good National Health Service policy or is this counterproductive for pharmaceutical lobbyists, who end up controlling their health to their liking? And what about the sick doctor relationship (which the Order of Doctors asks to be considered an Intangible Heritage of Humanity) that is being submerged by technologies and by the economist dehumanization of medicine?
So many serious issues looking for laughing satires… We all know that laughing is already an alternative drug, a placebo that eradicates multiple diseases of humanity, but to what extent it has therapeutic strength to keep us awake against usurpations, games, unhealthy corruptions of society?
b) As a subgroup, as part of the portrait-charge / caricature, we will honor António Arnaut (Penela 18/1/1936 - Coimbra 21/5/2018) the “father” of the National Health Service, created in 1978 when he held the position of Minister of Social Affairs (II Constitutional Government).
2 - Open to the participation of all graphic artists with humor, professionals or amateurs.
3 - Deadline: May 31st, 2020. They should be sent to humorgrafe.oms@gmail.com, humorgrafe@hotmail.com or humorgrafe_oms@yahoo.com (If they do not receive confirmation of receipt, resend SFF).
4 - Each artist can send, via e-mail in digital format (300 dpis A4 size) up to 4 monochrome works (one color with all its shades - 2, 3 or 4 color drawings are not accepted - open to all techniques and styles such as caricature, cartoon, humorous drawing, comic strip, comic strip (story on a single board) ... these should be accompanied with information of name, date of birth, address and e-mail.
5 - The works will be judged by a jury composed of: representatives of the Penela City Council; representative of the Espinhal Parish Council; representative of the Oliveira Guimarães family; by the Artistic Director of the Biennial; one sponsor representative, one local media representative and one to two guest artists, with the following Awards being granted:

The Jury, at its discretion, may award “Special Awards” (António Oliveira Guimarães, Leonor Oliveira Guimarães, Municipality of Penela, Junta de Freguesia do Espinhal and Humorgrafe), as an honorary title, with the right to a trophy.
6 - The Jury grants the right to make a selection of the best works to exhibit in the available space and catalog edition (which will be sent to all artists with reproduced work).
