Theme in Cartoonale Brugge 2011: Revolution!

The Bruges Cultural Department presents
Cartoonale Brugge 2011: Revolution!
This year marks the fifth edition of Cartoonale Brugge!
Theme for this year is 'Revolution!', a subject that has been headlining the news for months and that may be interpreted in the widest possible sense. Can you find inspiration in the news of the Arab revolts that have taken the whole world by surprise, or in the green revolution? In the digital revolution and the instant success of the I-phone, Twitter and Facebook? Or do you have other original ideas on the subject?
Cartoonale Brugge is open to all creative minds. Every artist may submit up to three cartoons and the deadline for submission 27 July 2011.
Do not hesitate to participate; there are nice prizes to be won! From among all entries, the jury will select three winners who will be awarded with a cash prize! The winner will walk away with 1,500 euros, the second- and third-prize winners will receive 1,000 euros and 500 euros respectively. Click here for the contest rules. You can also obtain these from Cultural Department or via the City of Bruges website.
