CIPE Launches New Global Editorial Cartoon Competition

17 Februar 2011.

Advocacy cartoons transcend language barriers and illiteracy. One powerful cartoon can communicate where a thousand words often cannot. CIPE’s new global competition is open to professional and amateur cartoonists, students, and professionals from any country and any walk of life.

Please send this message to teachers and students, journalists, and other friends who might want to enter. Cash prizes totaling $5,000 will be awarded to winners submitting cartoons in three categories: Democracy, Corruption, and Gender Equality. Entries will be judged on originality, relevance to the competition topic, creativity, universal message, wit, and visual appeal. Through an online voting process on the CIPE web site, the public will choose winners from among ten finalists in each category. Those finalists will be selected by a panel of distinguished judges:

  • Pat Oliphant
    Pulitzer Prize winner; world’s most widely syndicated cartoonist
  • Michael Duffy
    Assistant Managing Editor, TIME Magazine
  • Frances Abouzeid
    Chief of Party, International Center for Journalists (ICFJ)-Jordan
  • Tasneem Ahmer
    Director, Uks Research Centre
  • Jacques Charmelot
    Correspondent, Agence France-Presse (AFP)
  • Tom Gibson
    Founder, Advocacy Animation; USA Today cartoonist; Assistant to President Reagan
  • Marc Pachter
    Director Emeritus, National Portrait Gallery, Washington, DC
  • Elena Panfilova
    General Director, Transparency International-Russia

CIPE will accept original unpublished illustrations on its website and via mail effective immediately, until 23:59 UTC/GMT on Sunday, April 17, 2011. Captions are not required but, if included, English language submissions are preferred. Submissions will be accepted in Arabic, Chinese, French, Russian, and Spanish, if they include an English translation at the time of submission. For more information, visit www.cipe.org/cartoon/.

(Napomena našim potencijalnim konkurentima: konkurs se odnosi samo na novinske karikature, ne na stripove.)
