Forwarded from a cartoonist friend, the following message reveals the so-called participation rules of another fake competition of cartoons I'm afraid. There is only an e-mail address where cartoonists are supposed to send their work (as few as 20 cartoons at all!) knowing neither the person nor the institution to collect hundreds of artwork ready to be published or exhibited in a nowhereland for whose benefit God only knows.
How informative the introduction is (!) - possibly a copy-paste paragraph, yet how untrustworthy they are by showing no sign of human existence... What sponsor is to pay the cash prizes, who is responsible to produce a catalog, what website will publish the lists of participants & winners? Please read more

2010 FIFA WORLD CUP CARTOON COMPETITION
South Africa will become the first African country to host the 2010 FIFA World Cup, starting from 11 June to 11 July 2010. South Africa made its final presentation to host the World Cup to FIFA's Executive Committee at the Trade Centre in Zurich on 14 May 2004. On 15 May 2004, FIFA President, Sepp Blatter, announced that South Africa would be the host of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Thirty-two countries have qualified for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Six of these are from Africa, namely: South Africa, Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire, Nigeria, Cameroon and Algeria. The rest of the qualified countries are Japan, the Netherlands, Korea Democratic People’s Republic, Australia, Korea Republic, United States of America, Brazil, England, Paraguay, Spain, Denmark, Chile, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Serbia, Switzerland, Argentina, Honduras, Slovakia, France, Portugal, Slovenia, Greece, Uruguay and New Zealand.
The World Cup will take place in eight of South Africa’s nine provinces, using 10 stadiums in nine host cities. Five of the 10 stadiums are new and the rest have been upgraded for the event. Johannesburg, as South Africa’s economic hub, is the only city with two venues for the world cup, namely Soccer City and Ellis Park. Other host cities are Cape Town, Pretoria, Durban, Port Elizabeth, Polokwane, Nelspruit, Bloemfontein and Rustenburg.
The competition is open to all amateur and professional cartoonists.
