Festival of Honorable Mentions for Cartoonists

The 1st Festival of Honorable Mentions for Cartoonists – 2008
Deadline: February, 20 2008
20 honorable mentions will be given in each category

1 – Each participant will be able to submit three works in each category. But only one work will compete in each category. Justification: This procedure is aimed at promoting the exhibition of the best works and not the exhibition of some artists.
2 - This way, we will have the same cartoonist competing in one, two or even in the three categories, but we will not have more than one honorable mention for the same cartoonist in the same category.
3 – There will not be prizes in cash.
4 – All cartoonists that were indicated for the honorable mentions will receive a certificate of honorable mention especially made by “Sorrialengo project”, which is coordinated by the cartoonist Mattias.
5 – All cartoonists that send their works will be automatically selected to compete for the honorable mentions.
6 – Brazilcartoon website will support this event and will build a virtual gallery where the works will be posted according to their categories. The works not mentioned will be exhibited within the year in the column “Rato de Salão”. Justification: This procedure will enable the audience to know the works of all competitors, even those that,because of the decision of the jury, did not win honorable mentions. This way, all cartunistas will have the chance of exhibiting their works.
7 – Works mentioned or awarded in other contests, even virtual ones, will not be accepted.
- Works published in books, catalogues, newspapers, magazines and so on will not be accepted.
