Please note the warning here also:
Dear colleagues female cartoonists,
we have received an invitation to participate in a contest which comes from Australia. It´s dedicated to women cartoonists, but pay attention to the rules.
On number 8 it says that we are to give away our copyright simply by entering the contest. This is not allowed, taking copyright is illegal.
If they doesn´t change this item we from FECO will put these rules on the black list.
You could find the rules on: www.rotarycartoonawards.com.au
I wish you a good week-end, best wishes,
Marlene Pohle, FECO vice president general
