Invitation - III European Cartoon Contest "Creativity and Innovation"
We are very pleased to invite you to participate on the III European Cartoon Contest which theme is Creativity and Innovation, and the deadline for the reception of works will be the 30th September 2009.
This contest’s theme is in accordance with the proclamation of 2009 as the European Year of Creativity and Innovation.
If there is a sector that has, in its nature, a very strong focus on creativity and innovation, this sector is called Cartoon. Therefore, developing creativity and innovation on the European creativity and innovation is certainly a double challenge. Here it is.
With the quality of the humour we will prove that creativity and innovation are sustainable. We need rivers of humour to enlarge the margins of the unsustainability!
We do look forward to receive your participation!
