Catalog 6th International Tourism Cartoon Competition 2014, Turkey

Received yesterday the newly-published catalog of the 6th International Tourism Cartoon Competition 2014, Turkey. 22.7x23 cm in size (a bit larger than my scanner's, so the cover image above is cropped of top and bottom), the full-color catalog has 208 pages. This recent edition they also added the young competitors category which brought 56 pages more compared to the previous one of 2013. The book contains 186 finalist works in both adult and youth category, reduced from 920 works by 489 cartoonists representing 60 countries. The prizes were all-inclusive holidays for two persons each in 5-star hotels in Turkey as was the theme: "All-inclusive Holiday".
What this catalog brought new to me among others is the extraordinary art of Anon Anindito from Indonesia. Quite unusual, kind of bitter, in humor, the artist also has a masterly technique to portray the scene. None of his three works in the catalog is awarded probably because not directly related to the recent edition's theme.
The catalog is available now in PDF here which is downloadable also to be printed if you are an enthusiast.
My thanks to Nazmi Kozak, the publisher and member of the organizing committee, who sent me this book of amusing cartoons.
