21st World Press Freedom Canada International Editorial Cartoon Competition 2021

21st World Press Freedom Canada International Editorial Cartoon Competition 2021
1. The theme for the 21st International Editorial Cartoon Competition is: 
Censorship, shaming and disinformation on social media 
Social media and its algorithms can spare us from being confronted with contrary opinions, creating echo chambers for our own points of views. 
The proliferation of disinformation has turned debates into fights where dialogue is no longer possible, and unpopular opinions are shouted down or cancelled out. 
It leaves journalists operating in an environment where facts are often subordinated to lies and propaganda spread online. 
As the siege on Capitol Hill has demonstrated, moderating social media is no longer a luxury. 
2. Three prizes will be awarded: a first prize of $1500 plus a Certificate from the Canadian Commission for UNESCO, a second prize of $750 and a third prize of $500. All sums are in Canadian dollars. Ten additional cartoons will receive an Award of Excellence, which are not remunerated.
