Can you capture the complex ideas of democracy, corruption, and gender equality in one simple, universal image? Do you want to win $1,000 in the process? If you answer yes to either one of these questions, then you should participate in CIPE’s new 2011 Global Editorial Cartoon Competition.
One image can communicate more than dozens of pages of text or hours of speeches. One image can change the course of history. Editorial cartoons draw attention to important political, economic, and social issues like nothing else. Using symbols or visual metaphors, their reach transcends country borders and language barriers.
We invite you to take part in this exciting new initiative. We will be looking for original, relevant, creative cartoons with a universal message. We have assembled a fantastic panel of judges, including Tom Gibson, a founding cartoonist of USA Today and Pat Oliphant, Pulitzer Prize Winning and world’s most widely syndicated cartoonist.
Most importantly, the competition is open to participants of all ages, professional and amateur cartoonists. Take part and draw attention!
