"STOP ONLINE BULLYING... The Universal Message of Solidarity"

"STOP ONLINE BULLYING... The Universal Message of Solidarity"
Bullying happens to everyone, stoppable by everyone. 
What is Bullying? 
Bullying is the use of force, threat, or coercion to abuse, intimidate, or aggressively dominate others. The behavior is often repeated and habitual. One essential prerequisite is the perception, by the bully or by others, of an imbalance of social or physical power, which distinguishes bullying from conflict. Behaviors used to assert such domination can include verbal harassment or threat, physical assault or coercion, and such acts may be directed repeatedly towards particular targets. Rationalizations of such behavior sometimes include differences of social class, race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, appearance, behavior, body language, personality, reputation, lineage, strength, size, or ability. If bullying is done by a group, it is called mobbing. 
Perhaps one of the most important types of bullying that we suffer from is Online bullying. 
Online bullying is bullying carried out through the internet or mobile devices. 
Online bullying is also sometimes called cyber bullying. 
Online bullying can include the: 
sending insulting or threatening messages 
posting unkind messages or inappropriate images on social networking sites 
excluding others from online chats or other communication 
inappropriate image tagging 
sharing someone's personal or embarrassing information online 
creating hate sites or starting social exclusion campaigns on social networking sites 
sharing unflattering or private images, including naked or sexual images 
assuming the identity of another person online and representing them in a negative manner or manner that may damage their relationship with others 
repeatedly, and for no strategic reason, attacking players in online gaming. 
Rules: 
- Each Participant Can Send Up To 3 Cartoons. 
- Must Send his/her (Full Name, Email Address, Country).

Online exhibition: Manga Pandemic Web Exhibition 2020, Japan

Online exhibition: Manga Pandemic Web Exhibition 2020, Japan
2020/9/11(Fri) 〜 12/25(Fri)
Content 
International Network of Museums for Peace (INMP), one of the organizers of this exhibition, is preparing to hold the 10th International Conference of Museums for Peace, as a virtual-online asynchronous conference on September 16 (Wed), from Kyoto. This exhibition is planned as a part of the event, focusing on the expressive and expanding power of manga, with a purpose of “exhibiting peace” in a virtual space.
In the present-day peace studies, peace is redefined as absence of violence rather than absence of war, and here, violence implies a cause that obstructs the full bloom of human abilities. It can be starvation, poverty, social discrimination, suppression of human rights, environmental destruction, delays of welfare, education and medical care or others. In this way, violence in different shapes exists in our daily life, not somewhere removed from us. 
At this moment, a new type of violence is occurring in Japan and abroad because of the novel corona virus epidemic. There are many situations that threaten human life and dignity, such as discrimination and prejudice against infected people, pressure on medical facilities due to political situations, and deterioration of labor environments because of stagnating economies. 
In these circumstances, we decided to open this exhibition online to show manga works created with unfettered ideas, immediately and internationally. Moreover, submitted works during the exhibition period will be showcased on the webpage immediately upon arrival, instead of first collecting works and then opening the completed online exhibition. This is because people’s opinions on what is accurate could change daily and we want to represent contributors’ ideas as close to real-time as possible. 
No one knows by what kind of artists nor how many works this “Manga Pandemic Web Exhibition” will contain. It is possible that the exhibition will not be complete by lack of submissions. Nevertheless, we, organizers believe that the instantaneous and spreading power of manga can help us combat the virus.
Anyone in the world can submit their works for the exhibition. You might develop a fever for manga, but please join us in promoting peace through this project! 
Call for submissions 
We are seeking submissions of manga artwork to display at this online exhibition. 
Submission guidelines 
• ‘Manga pandemic’-themed manga or illustrations: 
o Any size and shape are welcome 
o The artwork format can be single-panel satirical manga, story manga, or illustration, etc. 
o File requirements: JPEG file not exceeding 10MB, and at least 2000 pixels on the longest side. 
o Language: Japanese or English. We will attach a Japanese-English translation for the exhibition if necessary. 
o Either monochrome or color is acceptable. 
o Submission method: Email preferred. If you would like to submit the original drawing, please contact us. 
o When applying please let us know: 
1. Your name (pen name is acceptable), including notation in Roman alphabet if your name is written in another script. 
2. Title of your work (Japanese and English) 
3. Nationality 
4. Date of production 
5. Your contact information (email address and phone number) 
Details 1-4 will be open to the public.
