Coast to Covid :(

Dear Drawers, dear Coaster
Unfortunately, as you all know, the coronavirus has upset our lives, stopped our walks, our paths but not our fantasy.
Many of you are locked in the house and all the initiatives that included gatherings are currently blocked and postponed until a later date.
So with extreme regret we have to announce that even our award ceremony scheduled for June 28 in Appignano will not be possible.
The prizes remain unchanged but with immense displeasure we will not be able to deliver them in person on that day of celebration as we had expected.
No longer having to organize the event, we, therefore, decided to give you some more time to receive your cartoons.
The deadline is therefore no longer 10 June but rather the: June 30, 2020
In the following days the jury will meet online and decide the winners who will be notified personally and the final ranking will be published on the website www.coastocomix.com and on the relevant Facebook page.
WE REPEAT: All cash and non-cash prizes specified in the announcement will be awarded and delivered.
Of course, the public prize for this first edition will unfortunately not be awarded.
Thanks, everyone for your understanding.

Topic Amnesty International: There is nothing wrong with solidarity, so certainly don’t prosecute
Nowadays showing solidarity and helping each other is often regarded as a crime. More and more people who want to help refugees, asylum seekers and migrants are being threatened, intimidated and harassed. They are put on trial and convicted only because they want to help people in need.
When governments punish and condemn natural acts of solidarity, it threatens our own values and human rights.

The 11th International Eskisehir Cartoon Festival 2020, Turkey

11. International Eskisehir Cartoon Festival
‘OUR DIFFERENCES AND SIMILARITIES’
Eskisehir, TURKEY
Dear Cartoonist Friend,
Eskisehir International Cartoon Festival is a cultural organisation organized once in two years by Aktiffelsefe Cultural Association. We organize the eleventh one which started in Istanbul first and then moved to Eskisehir. The themes before were Mixed (1997), East – West (2000), Water and Life (2003), Global Warming (2005), Intercultural Tolerance (2007), Energy (2009), Philosophy (2012), Voluntariness (2014), World Heritage (2016) and the theme of the tenth festival was Black-White ‘Compromise’. The tenth festival was organized in cooperation with Eskisehir City Council and 287 cartoonists from 52 different countries participated with 961 cartoons. Festival took place with a panel and an exhibition held in Eskisehir Haller Youth Center.
The theme of this year’s eleventh International Eskisehir Cartoon Festival has been determined as “Our Differences and Similarities”.
Aktiffelsefe suggests a wholistic development way that can make it possible for both the individual and the society to create solutions for the problems of the modern world by doing voluntary works in different subjects.
With this regard, the idea that the differences and the similarities constitute a way for us to understand all the living things and our place in the whole, that they don’t seperate but unite, form the theme of the 11th International Eskisehir Cartoon Festival.
Hypatia the philosopher who pioneered the education of many people in The School of Alexandria which is known for its famous library and which is one of the most effective institutions in ancient ages, lived in a time when many differences and different views emerged. She tried to prevent these differences from seperating the people and she gave importance to the things that unite us rather than seperate us. With the inspiration of Hypatia, it is worth considering that our differences besides our similarities can unite us and can help us to create a better society.
Millions of sand particles in a beach are different from each other but they can be together in harmony in a whole. We too are one of the millions of different creatures living on earth. Each one of them being unique is a part of harmony on earth. Our differences and similarities are not good or bad, they are natural factors that move us forward when we realize them.
Similarity is a very good opportunity to empower two things. Difference always shows us that there are new things we can learn from another. We think that differences and similarities don’t create a problem, on the contrary, they are indispensable in creating a better society which tolerances different life styles and different points of view. Our starting point is the differences and similarities are natural. We expect your cartoons with the theme ‘Our Differences and Similarities’.
The cartoons that will be exhibited in this festival will also be exhibited later in other cities of Turkey such as Adana, Ankara, Antalya, Bursa, Eskisehir, Istanbul, Izmir, Izmit, Mersin where there are branches of Aktiffelsefe and also in other exhibitions which will be organized abroad by other institutions that collaborate with Aktiffelsefe Cultural Associaton.

Social networks have already changed the world. Reporting the secret information on networks by WikiLeaks, igniting and managing the color revolutions, using personal data of users to interfere in the US presidential election and leaving Great Britain off the European Union are largely due to social networks. The role of social networks in the course of world history is growing and no one knows how they will affect humanity in the future. All this is the subject of an international cartoon competition. As always, cartoonists in their witty form will not only be able to show the strengths and weaknesses of social networks, their positive or negative role in human development, but also to foresee their future.

Dear Artists

We are preparing a Virtual Gallery to show the world that there is no monster that destroys humor.
Like the gallery created on Charlie Hebdo (and Wolinski) and 9/11, we would like to combine the best humor in an open space to the world. Cyberspace.
It is not a contest. It is a virtual exhibition of a worldwide character.

As the drawings arrive, they will be inserted in the platform that is being created, inside
www.cartoonvirtualmuseum.org. It will be called ANTI-COVID-19 GALLERY

In this time of quarantine and confinement, world humor is needed.
Sharing is necessary. With humor, the ‘screen-evidence society’ is also built.
If COVID is drama, humor is shout, battle cry…

Waiting for your participation, we send greetings

By the PortoCartoon team.
