The Image of America

Call for entries - Deadline extended -
WittyWorld is conducting a worldwide survey on the "The Image of America"
WittyWorld is conducting a survey of international perceptions of the United States, its influence, culture, and people. Cartoonists and artists are invited to offer their own version of opinions. A balance of views (positive and negative) is preferable, although the study is not necessarily looking to achieve that. The main goal is to mirror true images of how the world sees the U.S. as a whole — not only the present Bush Administration. However, all submissions, regardless of their points of view, will be considered and evaluated.
We are looking for visually exciting art directly addressing the complex image that the United States emanates to the rest of the world. An example (by Davor Trgovcevic, Croatia) is provided within this announcement.
Dr. A. William Menzin, a Harvard psychiatrist with a long-standing interest in using political cartoons for gauging social attitudes, is a strong supporter of the project and is advising and cooperating with WittyWorld founder Joe Szabo, who is writing a book.
A broad selection of the finest submitted examples will be the highlight of this study, while a traveling exhibition is also in the planning. Although high quality reproductions and electronic versions are also accepted, for the purpose of the show, original cartoons are preferable.
We have received wonderful submissions, however the deadline has been extended until further notice to allow for a broader geographic representation of opinions to come in while the book is being written. There is no limit as to how many cartoons/art may be submitted, but the size of the images must be at least A4 (21X30 cm). Original artworks should be sent to WittyWorld, 214 School Street, North Wales, PA 19454, USA. Electronic submissions (must be in high resolution — minimum 300 dpi and in either .tif or .jpg format) and inquiries should be sent to editor@wittyworld.com.
