V. Baja Cartoon Competition
This year the town of Baja organises its fifth cartoon competition; the third time it goes international!
Every fun loving amateur or professional cartoonist over 18 years of age is welcome to enter the event.
Theme: Gastro-tourism – we’re partial to fish, game and wine.
Gastro-tourism is not new; a lot of us like to get to know a new culture through its cuisine.
Baja can be such a tourist destination with its yearly fish soup competition, which attracts hundreds of thousands of gastro-tourists and is famous all over Europe. This grand fish soup feast is part of the Beautiful Baja festival program, which also includes the more and more popular sausage competition and the taste bud pampering wine contest.
