Denizli Metropolitan Municipality 3rd International Cartoon Contest 2023, Turkey


Healthy Life and Sports
We all know that doing sports is a must if we want to stay healthy and live a healthy life. Both scientific data and the health-related situations we experience show how much a healthy life is connected with sports. 
Sports: Sports is the body’s protector against many diseases like cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, blood pressure, joint and muscle ailments, stress and depression. It contributes to many conditions, from increasing human energy and mobility to increasing body resistance, as well as supporting the treatments we receive. Scientific data has proven this. Therefore, doing sports regularly improves one's mood while also providing a long and healthy life. 
As Denizli Metropolitan Municipality, while contributing to modern urbanization, we also made great efforts to ensure a healthy urbanization. Nowadays, we know the importance of sports in order to stay healthy, to be protected from diseases and to regain the health that we have lost. We act with the awareness that we can provide a quality life to our people only if quality physical structuring is supported by parks, green areas, sports fields and sports venues. While creating professional sports facilities, implementing sportsman training projects, and providing free sustainable opportunities for our citizens to do sports, we are also building sports halls, sports fields, walking paths, swimming pools and increasing the number of them day by day. 
As I emphasized above, we know that a healthy life is possible with the sustainability of sports. The reason why we have determined the subject as "Healthy Life and Sports" is to bring this issue to the agenda again and to contribute to the awareness of our people. 
We wish success to all our artists by expressing our belief that you will help us with your interesting and original cartoons on this subject.
