Refuse To Stay Silent: International Cartoon Contest and Exhibition, Norway 2022

International Cartoon Contest and Exhibition, Norway 2022

“Refuse To Stay Silent: Stop Violence against Women Worldwide"

243 million women and girls were abused by an intimate partner in the past years 2020-2021, according to the United Nations. Violence against women statistics was already painting a dark picture compared with previous years, and the virus has now severely aggravated the situation. 
The already staggering numbers are not to be taken at face value, as a large proportion of cases go unreported. The frequent impunity of perpetrators, stigma towards the victims, and self-inflicted societal shame lead many women and girls to be silent. Abuse, traditionally represented as merely physical, manifests itself in many forms: battery, psychological abuse, marital rape, femicide, rape, forced sexual acts, unwanted sexual advances, child sexual abuse, forced marriage, street harassment, stalking, cyber-harassment, human trafficking (slavery and sexual exploitation), female genital mutilation, child marriage and more… 
As countries went into lockdown to stop the spread of the virus, violence against women intensified, especially domestic violence, and the challenges of reporting it grew. Some countries saw calls for help rise significantly, with phone calls to helplines increasing five-fold. Yet, the number of regular reports fell in others, as access to support via channels became more limited. In a perverse cycle, a lot of women found themselves more isolated as the risk of violence in intimate relationships increased, frequently only in contact with their own abusers for long periods of time, unable to ask for help. 
We know the cartoons speak a universal language. Sometimes the text needs to be translated, but that is unnecessary for most cartoons. You can cry, laugh or get excited about them at first glance, and sometimes readers may have to think a little. cartoonists want you to laugh, cry or get mad about the sad, crazy, and cruel things on our planet, to raise awareness about what is happening. For that, our purpose in this contest is to create the main theme combining cartoonists from the whole world on tailored subjects about women's rights and stop violence against them worldwide and protect them because it's a global social crisis. And it has devastating consequences for the societies of the entire world. 
We Shouting about the perpetuation of violence against women worldwide: ”stop”.

The Festas de Lisboa’22 Sardine Contest is underway

The Festas de Lisboa’22 Sardine Contest is underway and this year there are two good reasons to create some brilliant sardines: the return of the Festas de Lisboa and Parque Mayer’s hundredth anniversary celebrations. We look forward to another contest full of glamour, colour and talent.
The competition is now officially open and runs until 4 April. It’s aimed at a creative world which knows no borders: Portuguese or foreign, young or old, individual or joint entries, first-timers or returning contestants. Everyone is invited to participate in this EGEAC-promoted initiative. 
There are no barriers to competing, so let your imagination run free. In terms of creativity, the only rule is originality; let inspiration do the rest. At this 12th edition, we’re celebrating the long and rich history of Parque Mayer (the centre of bohemian Lisbon and birthplace of the high point of the Festas de Lisboa: the street parades known as the Marchas Populares) which serves as the theme for this year’s competition. 
Have you ever imagined what depictions of culture you could fit within the outline of a sardine? It’ll be a tight squeeze! “Films, parades and sardines”; “Fado, clubbing and sardines”; “Circus, dancers and sardines”; “Festivals, cabarets and sardines”; “Operetta, tango and sardines”? 
On this hundredth anniversary of Parque Mater, the Sardine will take the leading role! 
This year, Turma da Sardinha (Sardine Class) is making a return too, in a contest exclusively for children in primary or lower secondary education. And there’ll also be a prize for the coolest sardine in school. 
We’ll be selecting a total of six winning designs; five winners will receive a prize of €1500, plus the winner of Turma da Sardinha, who will receive a prize worth €2000. 
Entrants (both individuals and partnerships) can put forward a maximum of three sardines, which must be submitted by 18.00 on 4 April
The winning designs will be announced by 31 May.
