Dear Cartoonist,
We are very pleased to invite you to participate on a European Cartoon Contest which theme will be "Intercultural Dialogue”, which deadline for the reception of works will be the 16th June 2008.
This contest’s theme is in accordance with the proclamation of 2008 as the European Year of Intercultural Dialogue.
The objective of this initiative of the European Commission is to promote the awareness of all citizens to respect the cultural diversity.
