We wish the participation of cartoonists from all around the world this year by organizing internationally the cartoon contest that we have organized nationally for three years.
We’ve decided the topic of the contest as Climate Change and Organic Agriculture.
Our world becomes more and more uninhabitable in time. Because of unconscious behaviors of humankind such as harming green areas, blue seas, clean water resources and clean air; they actually didn’t realize that they harmed themselves.
Negative behaviors disrupted the balance of the world. Natural conditions changed. On the one hand, the danger of drought; on the other hand, global warming and the rapid destruction of natural areas are the unique reasons why calamity and natural disasters are often threatening humankind. Accordingly, the damage to the agricultural areas has increased the share of inorganic nutritions and GMO (genetically modified organism) foods in the market and naturally proportion in the food chain. The use of hybrid seeds has also endangered the future of sustainable natural agriculture.
The importance of organic agriculture is obvious for healthy nutrition and consequently the future of humanity.
We have implemented and developed many environmentally-kind projects in order to increase the proportion of Denizli's green areas, to protect and save water resources, to minimize the pollution of the air we breathe and to recycle waste and garbage for the nature.
We have worked for forming organic aggriculture areas and directing farmers to organic aggriculture besides raising the awareness of our public. Furthermore, our works still keep on.
We wanted to bring up Climate Change and Organic Agriculture, we see it as a problem that threatens the whole world, with your valuable interpretations as master cartoonists. Thus, we desired to contribute to the awareness of people.
I thank you and wish you success.

HEALTH is the main theme for the PortoCartoon 2021
Luther King and Maria João Pires
- Special Caricature Awards
PortoCartoon (an initiative of the Portuguese Printing Pres Museum) will continue to follow the UN principles, Health is the the main theme chosen for 2021.
The invitation to participate was just been made to cartoonists around the world (
Placed as the 3rd SDG (Sustainable Development Goals), in 2015, health is today the main pillar for the defense of humanity. COVID-19 - a virus without borders and still uncontrollable - has become the "main threat to the world security", according to the UN General Secretary, António Guterres.
Following the line started in 2013, with the introduction of the Caricature award in PortoCartoon, the choice for 2021 was the Nobel Peace Prize winner Luther King, who was murdered in 1968. The current situation in the world, the frequent violation of Human Rights and the need to social transformation for a better and free world, for all races - especially the most segregated ones -, gives relevance to this choice.
The other chosen figure was the Portuguese pianist Maria João Pires, whose "way of playing the piano has often been described as magical, captivating and deeply poetic" (Deutsche Grammophon). With an international career and more than 140 albums edited, Maria João Pires is the Portuguese who follows other figures such as Manoel de Oliveira, José Saramago, Amália, Siza Vieira or António Guterres.
This will be the 23rd edition of the Portuguese Printing Press Museum initiative that started in 1998, with the theme of “Discoveries” (inaugurated by President Jorge Sampaio in 1999) and has put Portugal on the podium of the worldwide cartoon.
In the twenty-two previous editions, more than 7000 cartoonists from five continents had participated.
General Rules and Regulations
1 MAIN THEME HEALTH
Placed as the 3rd SDG (Sustainable Development Goals), in 2015, HEALTH is today the main pillar for the defense of humanity. COVID-19 – a virus without borders and still uncontrollable – has become the “main threat to the world security”, according to the UN General Secretary, António Guterres.
The fragility of the health services, in dozens of countries and regions of the world, and the lack of water and sanitation, has aggravated the people capacity for health defense. Epidemics claim millions of lives. Vaccines are a sign of hope, but again the poorest are the most unprotected. Even with so many speeches for equality, the tragedy seems to continue. And it is necessary to prevent the spread of the virus from being aggravated by the proliferation of misinformation.
In this context, the role of wise and beautiful humor is central and irreplaceable.
Therefore, PortoCartoon chose HEALTH as the main theme for 2021.
2 SPECIAL AWARDS FOR CARICATURE
MARIA JOÃO PIRES (1944- ) The pianist Maria João Pires is a prominent artist in classical music. She came to be recognized internationally when awarded with the first prize of the international competition of the bicentenary of Beethoven in 1970, in Brussels. Her career includes numerous tours, interpreting works by Bach, Beethoven, Schumann, Schubert, Mozart, Brahms, Chopin and many other composers. Invited by the great world orchestras, she performs regularly in Europe, Canada, Japan, Israel and the USA. “Her way of playing the piano has often been described as magical, captivating and deeply poetic” (Deutsche Grammophon).
Being a dreamer she created a unique work in the relationship between music and nature: Belgais Arts Center (Portugal).
MARTIN LUTHER KING (1929-1968) had a special dream: to create a world of peace for blacks and whites, with freedom and justice. Because of that he was murdered at 39. His dream remains alive, which many want to see dead.
He was a human rights martyr, like others who had followed him, Luther King was one of the first political figures in the United States to express himself, clearly, against racial discrimination. Inspired by Mahatma Gandhi and Henry Thoreau’s theory of civil disobedience, he advocated a peaceful and without weapon fighting. In 1964, he received the Nobel Prize for Peace, becoming at that time, the youngest winner of such an award.
The nowadays situation in the world, the frequent violation of the Human Rights and the need for social transformation for a better and free world for all races - especially the most segregated ones - give relevance to this choice of PortoCartoon 2021. Luther King deserves a special gallery. Likewise, his utopic dreams.

World Cartoon Festival on Applying Arts and Culture in
Silencing the Guns in Africa
Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Kenya
Over the past two decades, efforts have been made to silence the guns in Africa, and this is a positive turning point for achieving a conflict-free Africa. Despite these efforts, conflicts continue in parts of the African continent. Extremism, the threat of terrorism and transnational crimes on the continent remain an ongoing challenge.
Arms, as the continent's most popular weapon of choice, have attracted the attention of African Union member states and sparked their initiative to put an end to arms in Africa. The main task of this plan is to achieve a conflict-free Africa, prevent genocide, achieve peace for all and clean the African continent of war, violent conflict, human rights abuses and human disasters.
To expedite this plan, the African Union launched the "Silencing the Guns" project in 2020 by mobilizing all stakeholders. But the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 prevented us from addressing this important issue in Africa properly. The African Union's 2021 theme "Arts, Culture and Heritage" prompted us to use art to keep this important event alive next year and to strive to achieve it.
The Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Kenya, in line with the efforts of the African Union, decides to hold “World Cartoon Festival on Silencing the Guns" to show that the Islamic Republic of Iran, as in the past, stands with African countries to achieve peace and development on the continent.

The United Nations (UN) was founded following the Second World War by 51 countries including Turkey on October 24, 1945, to realize the noble humanity vision of securing international peace and providing security, supporting sustainable development and safeguarding human rights. Turkey, as a founding member of the United Nations, plays an important role in the fulfillment of various duties of the organization from peacekeeping and peace building to improving the lives of people in need around the world.
UN Turkey and its partners work towards achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals: The 17 ambitious goals in connection with each other aim to solve the problems faced by people all over the world, including Turkey. One of these goals is GENDER MAINSTREAMING. We can explain the gender mainstreaming, which is the main goal here, within the following scopes:
• Ending all forms of discrimination against women and girls everywhere,
• Eliminating all forms of violence against all women and girls in public and private domains, including woman trafficking and sexual and all forms of abuse,
• Eliminating child marriage, early forced marriage and all harmful practices against women,
• Making policies of public services, infrastructure and social protection regarding unpaid care and housework, and recognition and appreciation of responsibility within the household and family through improving the sharing of responsibility in a nationally appropriate manner, and;
• Ensuring women's full and effective participation in decision-making processes of political, economic and social life and equal opportunities for women to exist in decision-making leadership mechanisms.
IZMIR and especially IZMIR Metropolitan Municipality, which has become a leading example for Turkey with exemplary efforts towards improving the lives of women and girls, is a part "Women Friendly Cities Program" since 2006 and carries the distinction of being the first metropolitan province in being so. This was documented by the "Women Friendly City Certificate" issued in 2009. We can define a "Women Friendly City" in general as a city where the urban rights of women are realized, their participation in local decision-making processes and decision-making mechanisms is ensured, local equality policies that improve women's living conditions and ensure equality of women and men in all areas of life are established, and local services are provided through embedding these policies in the understanding of local government. Established in Izmir Metropolitan Municipality, "Directorate of Women’s studies" sets an example for the sustainability and permanence of the Women Friendly Cities program. Besides, there are Women's Shelters; “Key” Integrated Service Center; Fairy-Tale Houses for women with children; Vocational Factories that prepare women for Employment and Entrepreneurship; and Equality Unit.
Women managers are an example of the given priority of the number of female employees and female employment. IZMIR Metropolitan Municipality gives training on Gender Mainstreaming and provides services that facilitate the life of women in the city while taking into consideration of their rights and freedom through awareness-raising activities carried out on special days including November 25 Combating Violence Against Women; March 8 International Women's Day, December 5 Turkish Women's Right to elect and to be elected, and through conducting mutual work and well-attended meetings with NGOs and Trade Associations.
