9th International Biennial Masters of Caricature, Plovdiv 2017, Bulgaria

Plovdiv’ 2017
Wealth and Charity
The caricature is universal language with hidden messages, “dressed” in humour.
Its goal is to make everybody smile, even when they suffer of life in hardship. “In order to receive, learn to give.” This folk wisdom has been experienced and well suffered.
“If you have two shirts, give one to the poor.” was written in the Bible. For some people wealth is in the possession of money and property. Others find it in love and wisdom…
Richness gives privileges, but it also obliges. Wealth can provide indulgence for the rich, but it can also mean another day of life for the poor. Is what some find valuable, valuable for others too? Should you possess, in order to give? Values and wealth meet in the act of donation.
In this Biennial, we will see how caricaturists will draw the shades of wealth and charity. Whether old wisdom will interweave with new mores and what will come out from it remains to be seen.
Address for submission:
Regional Ethnographic Museum – Plovdiv
2 Dr. Stoyan Chomakov str.
4000 Plovdiv
1. The Biennial for Caricature is open to professional and amateur caricaturists from all over the world;

10th International Don Quichotte Cartoon Contest 2017: Respect differences!

Theme: “Respect differences!
Societies differ based on their language, religion and racial features. These features create the basics of the “differences” description. In such terms, we may not talk about equality since every body has a different color. Amongst crowds, these concepts are unfortunately referred as discriminators. Whereas these differences should be seen as riches. Whilst facing differences, we should acknowledge everybody as they are and respect their differences. Respecting people’s thoughts, lifestyles, views of life are a must in the first place for societal values. These differences shouldn’t be a reason for imposition, othering and end up into opression. People’s values, lifestyles, visions, beliefs, anticipations, tastes, perceptions and interpretations pof the World may differ. All of them represents the riches of life. Acknowledging, understanding the other and whatever his/her differences are, knowing that he/she also owns all the rights we do, elevates our humanist side and universality.
In a society where some masses want the others to be just like themselves and rejecting the others’ cultural heritage representing the differences is a menace towards societal values. In any society, all the people must live in equal conditions and rights. Every race is different yet all create a harmony like a rainbow when joined. We deserve living in a colorful World independent of race, language and religion. Respecting the differences..
The purpose of our contest is to underline the difference while showing its importance to societies and implement it through the cartoon art.
The Rules of Competition:
1) With participation in competition is possible only by Internet. (respect@donquichotte.org)
2) All submitted work should be participating a contest for the first time. With an offence, there's a risk of deprivation of the achieved prizes.
3) The designs are to be drawn in A3 Size to deliver in 300 dpi dissolution and in Jpeg format. They know both and black-and-white, and to be colored, the coloured representation is exactly the same as the color technical treatment of the work is incumbent on not a containment.
4) The closing date of the competition is 15 March 2017.
