FRUIT & OLYMPIC GAMES 2008
On the eve of the Olympic Games 2008 in Peking become from our Cartooncontest the topic:
Haspengouws fruit and Olympic games 2008.
We wonder ourselves in advance which positive influence can our Fruit from Haspengouw* on this greatest sport event or could in the distant Peking, where the complete international sport world collects. Our jury expects, the Olympic idea keeping in mind that "take part is more important than win" that our Haspengouws fruit in these disciplines will ensure lunatic interpretations and hilarity combinations. The jury expects with impatience your funny interpretations of the topic FRUIT & OLYMPIC GAMES before 27 February 2008.
