The 21st PortoCartoon World Festival 2019, Portugal

General Rules and Regulations
The United Nations (UN) declared 2019 as “the year of indigenous languages” (in the last few years, many languages have disappeared).
PortoCartoon wants the world’s humor to be wider.
Languages and the World” is therefore a theme for multiple reflections: which world and which languages? What worlds do we speak about and which languages? What languages do we connect to? What are their supremacy between them? Who dominates who by the language? The language as an instrument of subjugation? Does language give power?
There are multiple meanings. Meetings / Disagreements.
Humor leads the way.
Following to the line started in 2013, with the introduction of the Caricature Special Award on PortoCartoon, we have chosen for 2019 Fernão de Magalhães and Bob Dylan.
FERNÃO DE MAGALHÃES (c. 1480-1521)
An important figure of the history of the discoveries, Fernão de Magalhães (aka Ferdinand Magellan) made in 1519 the first voyage of circum-navigation. He connected the world people thought was fragmented, linear and not round. He was the author of the first globalization
The 500 years of this odyssey that begun in Sevilla (Spain), are celebrated in different parts of the World, from 2019 to 2022.
This Portuguese, from the north of Portugal, made the voyage to the service of the Spanish king Carlos V.
The ‘Magalhães Route’ links many cities and towns.
The humor of caricature can reinforce this dimension of the world unity, at this time of dangerous threats.
BOB DYLAN (1941 - )
Winner of the Literature Nobel Prize for in 2016, Bob Dylan became the first musician to win such an award. The award astonished the world, but the Swedish Academy’s reason was clear: Dylan created “new ways of poetic expression within the framework of the American music tradition.”
Dylan is a permanent re-inventor of the word-music connection. He has reinvented himself for more than 56 years, passing on to the music the rhymes of his “pictorial way of thinking”.
With iconic songs for different generations, Dylan avoided the spotlight of being awarded with the Nobel Prize.
In the lyrics of many songs, there is not only poetry, but humor as well.

XXI PortoCartoon 2019 with the main theme: Languages and the World

Dear Cartoonist, dear Friend,
Every year languages ​​disappear.
In the last ten years, about 100 have disappeared. Therefore, the UN declares 2019 as the year of the indigenous languages.
This invitation range is wider: to put the finger in the languages-world relationship. Which world and which languages? What worlds do we speak about and which languages? What languages ​​do we connect to? What are their supremacy between them? Who dominates who by the language? The language as an instrument of subjugation?
Dead languages ​​and living languages. Towers of Babel? What languages ​​does the world need? What values ​​do they pass on? What values ​​are lost and gain by them?
Language as a right and as a heritage? The language as a disagreement or as a meeting point? Does the 'language of humor' cross all languages? Are there many worlds in the languages of humor?
In the intelligence and in your art is surely the answer.
We would like to receive your most appreciated participation until: 31 January 2019
To participate is to speak the language of everybody.
Greetings, with universal humor,
Luiz Humberto Marcos

1. Topic of the Contest: "THE FUTURE IS IN OUR HANDS"
Immanuel Kant, one of the important figures of philosophy, has voiced in the 18th century that “People should use their own minds now.” Nowadays, we understand that “People should use the minds of machines.”
The amazing developments in science and technology have changed human life, which was primitive up to a few centuries ago, quickly. Thousands of people who have different lifestyle made an effort to adapt to these changes. Societies have experienced various management systems in the course of time. Countries set up the order to exploit other countries. Asymmetric income distribution occurred. Modern slavery and consumer labor force began to destroy world resources.
Within this context, the questions we encounter;
What will happen to people in the future if life goes like this?
How will the future of the person who has difficulty accepting rapid changes be created?
How do we make “human” the winner of all time?
How will we criticize today to solve the human problems?
In line with this context, we organize our competition with the subject "THE FUTURE IS IN OUR HANDS"
