The modern Olympic Games belong to the tradition of the eldest and certainly most impressive sporting events world wide.
In 2012, thousands of athletes will meet up in the capital city of England London for the thirtieth edition of the summer Games. There will be excitement, emotions, intense joy and satisfaction during the competition for the gold medal. All this taking place in the interesting setting of London, one of the most exiting cities in Europe.
This is therefore a unique occasion for the tourism organisation of Zemst, together with the Belgian museum of Sport Sportimonium(www.sportimonium.be), to choose the Olympic Games in London as the contest theme for the third edition of the international Sportcartoonfestival in 2012.
The subject can be widely interpreted. Some keywords include: London, athletes, Olympic disciplines, fans... a fascinating subject to stimulate the creativity and critical minds of the cartoonists!
