Greek cartoonist Giannis Kalaitzis, 71, dies of cancer on 12 February 2016

A leading political cartoonist since 1961, he has been at the forefront of militant criticism against politics of power. He studied graphic design, theatre, and drawing and collaborated with a lot of printed media, most importantly, Avgi, Streets of Peace, Panspoudastiki, Ntefi, Anti, and Eleftherotypia. He has also published cartoons for Manos Chatzidakis’ “Tetarto”. In 1984 he published the album “The Gypsy Orchestra” which is regarded as the first Greek graphic novel. It was followed by “The Black Image of Aphrodite” (1990), “The Typhoon” (1997). He has also published collections of his cartoons (“For The Money’, “November”, “2000 out of 4”). From 2005 to 2010 he was the editor of “Galera” magazine. Unconventional and bold, Kalaitzis draws, writes, and speaks in a very personal style expressing his anger against the state of things.
Kalaitzis was most recently working with Efimerida ton Syntakton.
The funeral is set to take place in Athens on Tuesday.

District Heating Cartoon Contest 2016, Hungary

Not many people think about the advantage of district heating, however, this well-established technology has obvious social benefits.
What is district heating like?
First, it is comfortable: consumers have nothing to do but enjoy the warmth of their home; the supply, preparation and conversion of the fuel as well as the maintenance of the system is done by the service supplier.
Besides, district heating is environment-friendly: heating plants operating with high efficiency consume relatively less fuel (so they can be operated with lower costs) than individual heating systems, so, the quantity of harmful substances after firing is also less.
Another advantage is that smoke is not produced in residential areas but farther away, so district heating is less harmful on cities air quality.
In addition, renewable energy sources (such as geothermal energy or biomass) can be applied. Since by the utilization of these the emission of greenhouse gases decrease, district heating contributes to climate protection.
It is interesting, right? Do you have your opinion about the issue? If you have, you have nothing to do but make a drawing about it. A caricature, of course. A creative caricature artist has an opinion about everything.

Rules of District Heating Cartoon Contest 2016, Hungary

Not many people think about the advantage of district heating, however, this well-established technology has obvious social benefits.
What is district heating like?
First, it is comfortable: consumers have nothing to do but enjoy the warmth of their home; the supply, preparation and conversion of the fuel as well as the maintenance of the system is done by the service supplier.
Besides, district heating is environment-friendly: heating plants operating with high efficiency consume relatively less fuel (so they can be operated with lower costs) than individual heating systems, so, the quantity of harmful substances after firing is also less. Another advantage is that smoke is not produced in residential areas but farther away, so district heating is less harmful on cities air quality.
In addition, renewable energy sources (such as geothermal energy or biomass) can be applied. Since by the utilization of these the emission of greenhouse gases decrease, district heating contributes to climate protection.
It is interesting, right? Do you have your opinion about the issue? If you have, you have nothing to do but make a drawing about it. A caricature, of course. A creative caricature artist has an opinion about everything.
Veolia Energia Magyarország Zrt. announces an international caricature contest in the following topic:
