CARTUNION 2007

The Second International Cartoon Contest - CARTUNION 2007
State and Religion
Where does one begin and the other end?
A century ago the French decided that question and separated legislatively these two important institutions. This decision became a universal standard and entered the constitutions of many nations. It was believed that the harmony was established and all the interested parties were satisfied. Unfortunately, in the constantly-changing world one or the other side tries to undermine that balance. We see how the ruling elites oppress the believers and disallow any sign of religious worship. Or vice-versa, the ruling group attempting to fill their own ideological vacuum begins to play with religion. There are nations where religious leaders seeking the highest reaches of political office forget about their flock.
The conflict between religious and secular parts of the community flares up often and Russian political scene is no exception to this tendency. The rising clout of Eastern Orthodoxy doesn’t limit itself to caring about worshipper’s souls, and the populist government does everything to encourage the influence of the church on the citizenry. In situations where non-commercial organizations lose their basic rights, the church is provided with various financial and political privileges. Things have gotten so bad that 10 Russian academics sent a letter to the President asking him to safeguard the secular character of the nation.
Wherever there is a conflict, a cartoonist will always find something to write about. We invite international cartoonists to tell us their thoughts on each of the questions discussed.

Theme for the Competition
Health via Technology
Brief: In today's world of touch-button technology, we're gently reminded about the human frailty when we, or someone amongst near and dear ones have to pay a visit to the "Hospital". An activity inherently associated with the physical well-being of the human body is now surmounted by the platitude of the machines that surround the process.
The days of ''healing-touch", and an emphatic year of a neighbourhood physician are fast being replaced by the regular hum of a machine taking stock of your full body.
Scans, Monitors, reports, tests, x-rays, and more artifacts like these dominate the health landscape today. But this is not all that bad as it has also helped improve the quality of healthcare.
Now, this is the theme for the cartoon contest. The participants have to highlight the chasm and the charm created by the use of Technology to aid Health.
Awards and Acknowledgements
A jury will select the top 6 winning entries, the cartoonists will be granted a cash prize award of
First prize Rs.25,000/- (Rs. Twenty five thousand only)
Two second prizes of Rs. 10,000/- (Rs. Ten thousand only) each and
