Address: Homer Davenport International Cartoon Contest P.O. Box 781 Silverton, OR 97381 USA
Cartoons will be displayed in an exhibit at Homer Davenport Days (Aug. 3rd thru 5th). It is local tradition for winning cartoons to be published in the local newspaper, and we now post winners on our web site (davenportdays.com). For future festivals, we would like to post certain cartoons that still have topical merit; these are not in competition and not posted near competing cartoons. We will contact you prior to the festival to secure your permission to do this. In all cases, your name and state/country will be clearly labeled.
