Freedom is the fundamental right of human beings, but efforts to limit it have become systematic in the contemporary world.

1st Edition of the International Cartoon Contest "Safety at work", Italy

"Faraone industrie Spa" of Tortoreto (TE) is organising the 1st Edition of the International Cartoon Contest "Safety at work", International Review of humorous graphic art. The aim of the initiative is to contribute to the dissemination of the culture of safety at work through the art of humour and illustration. 
A picture is worth a thousand words and we believe that art in all its forms invites reflection and moves the minds of workers and all people. 
"Safety at Work" - the topic must be understood in a general sense and in every aspect, from every point of view and possible interpretation: Safety at Work means working with peace of mind and serenity with suitable equipment in safe places, whether outdoors on construction sites or in offices; it also means ensuring worker safety, the workers of today and tomorrow. Every year 2.2 million workers around the world lose their lives due to occupational accidents or diseases. Ensuring worker safety is a global need and a priority in every country in the world. 
This is why we wanted to extend the participation of this initiative to an international level, relying on the sensitivity and creativity of each cartoonist. 
The work should invite people to reflect on the importance of work safety. We often think that 'it won't happen to us because nothing has ever happened before', but we are not superheroes and an unforeseen event may result in not being able to return to our loved ones after work. 
The contest is open to all artists, cartoonists, illustrators and graphic designers worldwide who are of age. 
Each author may participate with a maximum of 3 (three) works on the proposed theme. 
Works must not include dialogue or jokes.

The 23rd World Press Freedom Canada International Editorial Cartoon Competition 2023

23rd World Press Freedom Canada International Editorial Cartoon Competition 2023
The theme for the 23rd International Editorial Cartoon Competition is: 
Free speech or free for all 
Intimidation and disinformation have become weapons in the arsenal of politicians and those who seek to control the media narrative. 
Donald Trump’s rude behaviour and open disdain for rivals, the media and government institutions has encouraged others, such as Jair Bolsonaro, to emulate him. 
On average, Trump lied twenty times per day on Twitter and Facebook, bypassing mainstream media organizations that are responsible for checking facts. 
Social media companies profit by creating algorithms that divide us and reward fear and anger, rather than accurate information. 
Has mainstream media been derelict in its mission as it struggles to remain profitable? How can we filter abuse without curtailing free speech? And if that is at all possible, who would moderate the moderators? 
Competition rules 
Three prizes will be awarded: 
First prize worth $1500 plus a Certificate from the Canadian Commission for UNESCO 
Second prize worth $750 
Third prize worth $500
