4th International Zagreb Exhibition of Car Caricature 2010 - Croatia
Honored Caricaturists (and all those who want to become one)
This year 4th International Zagreb car caricature exhibition 2010 marks the 112th anniversary of the car`s first appearance in Croatia. The car was driven by Count Marko Bombelles to his home in Vinica near Varaždin. Since those early days, in all its guises, the car has become an essential part of everyday life. “His Majesty”, the car, has become so necessary for work and play that it is difficult to imagine any activity which does not involve the use of an automobile. From basic functions such as travelling to and from work, to every other type of economic, sport, cultural, political, recreational, tourist, health, military, police or “romantic” pursuit. It is omnipresent, ever desirable and IRREPLACEABLE! Life without a car is unimaginable. We ask ourselves how did we manage to live without the car for thousands of years.
With message and slogan of this years exhibition: ”WITH CAR INSPECTION YOU CONTRIBUTE IN PRESERVATION OF OUR ECOLOGY”.
So our focus this year as well as a theme is going to be
CAR INSPECTION AND CAR VALIDATION CHECK.
With this theme we want to interest authors from around the world to warn public of a need to preserve nature.
This is a fantastic opportunity for caricaturists from all around the world to “speak up” through their drawings and show advantages and disadvantages of their majesty – the Car.
The main sponsors for this year 4th International Zagreb Car Caricature Exhibition are the City Government. They will be presenting the Grand Prix prize. Croatian Automobile Club (HAK) – Zagreb Branch will be awarding the First Place Prize. There will be two more prizes (special acknowledgement) and 7 special recognitions. The other sponsors will be revealed on the opening day.
This exhibition provides Zagreb and Croatia with an annual cultural and artistic show which is rapidly attracting international followers - with a theme instantly recognizable by all – cars in our daily work and life.
