Endangered Species: 29th International Festival Calicomix 2022, Colombia

Closing Date: August 15, 2022
September 12th to 16th. Opening of exhibitions, workshops, conferences.

The 29th International Festival Calicomix 2022 has "MEXICO" as a guest country and in the activities that will be performed has created the exhibition "Species in Danger" that deals with an invitation through a call to illustrators and caricaturists of the world to make images of catrinas and alebrijes of endangered species including humans and the little attention we are giving to the care of the planet and the point of no return of much of life. 
In this dangerous and costly adventure of civilization, mankind will have to necessarily return to observing nature from where it originated. He is experienced enough to understand that the power that he has the knowledge and experience to solve planetary life and coexistence with other species will be the only thing that will allow humans to survive. 
We invite artists from all over the world participating in this contest inspired and guided by the contributions of José Guadalupe Posada and Pedro Linares Lopez where we will award the three best works. We have combined the Mexican popular tradition with environmental alarms to give it that encouraging element of celebrating the lives of the beings we live with, showing how art affects the way to interpret and manifest. 
We invite you to meet Posada and Linares these extraordinary Latin American artists who will bring us elements for our sample of "Endangered Species" 
Coinciding our event with the celebration of the 170th anniversary of the birth of the engraver, illustrator and cartoonist José Guadalupe Posada, celebrated for his drawings and engravings about death. Have a passion for political cartoon. Developed new techniques for printing. He worked for and founded major newspapers. Consolidating the Day of the Dead party, for its interpretations of everyday life and attitudes of the Mexican through skulls acting like ordinary people. 
The validity of the work of José Guadalupe Posada is clearly identified in a series of creations achieved in recent decades, from various means and techniques. Posed beyond his death, and his dead, he lives and is an important presence and cultural expression of Mexican art. 
We add to this call the fantastic vision of Pedro Linares, with his imaginary figures representing animals and monsters. This Mexican artist collaborating with Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo suffered at an early age very strong fevers that led to him having agonizing nightmares. These visions transported him into a wild environment and in touch with nature, and everything around him, whether a plant, a rock or a cloud, was transformed into very colorful animal forms and in very strange ways: winged dogs pickle with fangs and countless grotesque figures. All of them pronounced continuously and obsessively the same word: "Alebrijes", a term incomprehensible and without any meaning. When he overcame his illness, Linares shared with his family these fantastic hallucinations, and began to reproduce in cardboard and stone the figures of his nightmares, molding and decorating them just as he had imagined. 
The call is now open and will end on August 15, 2022
Participants can submit up to three works in A4 size and 300 dpi resolution. 
We will award the following prizes: 
First place prize of $1,200.000.oo (One million two hundred thousand Colombian pesos).

7th International cartoon competition, Kolasin 2022, Montenegro

International caricature festival "Kolašin 2022" has announced the 7th International cartoon competition. 
THEME OF THE FESTIVAL: Compromise and Tolerance and Free Theme. 
Participants can submit a maximum of three papers based on the topic. Six /6/ works in total. 
Every work must contain the name and surname of the author, the state and the serial number of the work. Example: JOHN SMITH, USA 1 JOHN SMITH ,USA 2... 
The first three papers must be on the given topic. 
The theme of this year's festival is compromise and tolerance. This is a very broad topic, and the main goal is to point out with the messages of world artists that any misunderstanding, dispute or conflict between two people or two countries can be resolved by dialogue, conversation or negotiations. By presenting the facts and looking at things objectively, a compromised solution to every problem will be reached. No disagreement is resolved by physical conflict or war. Because, in the end, every war always ends at the negotiating table. Then why so many human and material victims? Why does a man use force when he has reason and is valid for a human and civilized being? That's why this festival wants to address this question and seek adequate answers from artists-caricaturists around the world. Answers that are above all lucid, witty and intelligent. 
Artists from all over the world will respond to this given topic through caricature and powerful messages. The best works will go around the world and send a message around the globe. The best works will be rewarded with First, Second and Third prizes, which will be in money and in the form of trophies and diplomas. We will also award five special prizes - diplomas. It is yours to think and create. Ours is to reward the best works. Best of luck to everyone! 
Rules on technique and scale of work: Free. 
Send the works to the mailing address: 
Cultural Center Kolasin 81210, Montenegro-Montenegro  /for international caricature festival/ 
FIRST PRIZE: 500 euros, trophy and diploma 
SECOND PRIZE: 300 euros, trophy and diploma 
THIRD PRIZE: 200 euros, trophy and diploma 
Five special awards - Salon Diploma. 
Deadline for shipping / deadline : 20.07.2022
An international jury will choose the best works. 
Jury decision will be announced on the 25th July on all foreign caricature sites. 
The winners will be officially announced at the Cultural Center in Kolašin.
