The 1st Kaktus Cartoon Award 2023, Austria

1st Kaktus Cartoon Award 2023
The School of Disobedience (Schule des Ungehorsams), founded by Austrian Cartoonist Gerhard Haderer, is together with Austrian law firm Haslinger / Nagele Rechtsanwälte announcing the first Kaktus Cartoon Award. 
A prize that is awarded to international cartoonists who take a critical and humorous look at our society. 
Cartoons are an important and effective tool to show political or social grievances. The drawings can be grasped quickly, bring complex content visually to the point and through their humorous and exaggerated presentation, and also be entertaining. 
With the Kaktus Cartoon Award we would like to promote this art form and give cartoonists a stage. 
Kaktus 2023 - CLIMATE CHANGE 
The first Kaktus Cartoon Award 2023 is dedicated to the topic CLIMATE CHANGE. 
We can see the effects of climate change everywhere - locally and globally. 
It is high time to change our behavior to avert the worst. 
Cartoons can make a convincing contribution by making grievances visible and comprehensible. They can inspire us to new ideas and solutions. 
The Kaktus will be awarded to the best artists with cartoons on climate change. 
Prizes: 1st place: 2.500 €; 2nd place: 1.500 €; 3rd place: 1.000 €

The Kaktus "Cartoon & Law" is dedicated to the topic CLIMATE JUSTICE 
Who is primarily responsible for climate change and who are the most affected?
