The 20th PortoCartoon 2018 / Invitation / Clean the Planet with Us!

Dear artists of the humor,

Planet Earth needs a lot of cleaning.

And when it comes to cleanliness, we know that in the language of humor, there are different kinds of trash. With varying degrees of toxicity.

There is household trash.

There is industrial waste that pollutes the air, the rivers and the sea.

There is the rubbish of consumerism.

There is the rubbish of tax havens that unbalances the world.

There is the rubbish of corruption that involves top leaders in many parts of the world.

Sometimes all these junk is mixed in different layers.

Therefore, PortoCartoon 2018 wants to evoke cleaning the world, in this multiplicity of meanings.

Only with this latitude it’s possible to have a more democratic, cleaner and healthier planet!

In addition to this subject, there is the Free Theme and also the caricatures.
We propose two icons of the magic of music and cinema: Amália and Woody Allen.
Both have expressive faces and are rich in emotion.

Come then the best humor in the world, with intelligence and art!

6th Niels Bugge Cartoon Award 2018, Viborg - Denmark

6th Niels Bugge Cartoon Award 2018, Viborg - Denmark
Theme explanation: Artificial Intelligence
*
Artificial Intelligence is coming. I don’t mean computers playing chess or go against human beings… and winning. No, I mean machines, manufactured by humankind, thinking, inventing, creating and perhaps, in the future, feeling and suffering.
Science fiction literature and movies from the 20th and 21st centuries have developed the concept of robots, clones, androids at the service of humans. Robots, clones and androids that suddenly start thinking, and even thinking for themselves, and then, possibly, rebel and fight against us - their creators, their masters, their gods.
The US writer Philip K. Dick, author of the novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (Blade Runner on the screens, as well as Total Recall and The Adjustment Bureau), was one of the most amazing visionaries concerning artificial intelligence.
Steven Spielberg, with his movie A. I. Artificial Intelligence (following an idea of Stanley Kubrik), also went quite far away on the very deep philosophical question of the android, a perfect charming child, who wishes to become human.
But, for the moment, this is not our present. Our present is for instance the industrial robotics which is already invading our factories, and the housework robots which will soon occupy our homes and doing all our domestic chores. That means less jobs for working people outside and less work for us inside. So, surely more free time for all of us inside but perhaps also less freedom and social autonomy outside.
And then, one thing led to another, shall we have robotic soldiers to make war someday and android sex toys to make love... instead of us.
In short, dear cartoonists from all over the world, with our 2018 theme Artificial Intelligence, all the possibilities are opened for you to express, thanks to your natural intelligence, your most terrific and free artistic creativity about this very important subject concerning our present and future as living social species on Earth.
Carlos Brito

"A Colorful Human World” International Cartoon Contest & Exhibition, Norway 2018

“A Colorful Human World” International Cartoon Contest & Exhibition, Norway 2018
Theme: Colorful Human World.
Deadline: 15th of March 2018.
Size: A4, jpg format, 300 dpi.
Email: colorworld2018@gmail.com
A Colorful Human World!
"It was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair", Dickens wrote. Words, we recognize only too well. Or rather, we instantly recognize the despair, seeing it in the eye of refugees, who travel across the sea in spite of the danger, because staying would be infinitely more dangerous. We see the refugees, who never make it to Europe, drowning in the attempt, and those who make it ashore, only to be met with hate speech and the suspicion that they are extremists. Mainstream media are stimulating that populist speech, which incites hate, while right wing parties everywhere in Europe are calling on the nation state and closing of the borders to the exclusion of others. There is always some "other" to blame for everything. In fact, our societies consist of many "others" at the risk of a situation of fracture in which everyone is made scared of one another. Cartoonists have an important task at hand, and The International Cartoon Contest & Exhibition 2018 invites all cartoonists to make us forget to be scared and find different ways of (re)connecting. Cartooning at its finest is a spring of hope. It gives us ways to critically rethink and find alternatives to bridge the "us" and "them". We get to see the human in the other. Differences in culture or language are no longer too strange or too much to take in. We see that differences are what make for a colorful world. We deserve to be living in a colorful human world and The International Cartoon Contest & Exhibition 2018 invites all cartoonists to take part to make it a reality.
CONDITIONS OF PARTICIPATION:
The Contest is open to cartoonists from all over the world. Cartoonists can send their published or unpublished works of art to the Contest.
The cartoon can be produced traditionally or digitally.
Deadline :15th of March 2018
Each participant may present up to 3 cartoons (size A4). Resolution must be at least 300 dpi.
The Prizes
Grand Prize: 5,000 kr.
Second Prize:3,000 kr.
Third Prize: 2, 000 kr.
Honour Prizes (5): 1000kr.
All participants whose works will be exhibited will receive a Digital Certificate of Participation
A short CV, personal photo, the e-mail address, Skype account (if available), and the postal address of each participant is required.
JURY and EXHIBITION:
Norwegian and International Jury of ten members will make a selection of the submitted cartoons which are to exhibited in the Norwegian Literature House in Oslo and published in Cartoon Home Network International (Facebook platform): https://www.facebook.com/CHNI2016/

5th KalDer Bursa International Cartoon Contest 2018, Turkey

5. KalDer BURSA
INTERNATIONAL CARTOON CONTEST
SPECIFICATION
The Caricature Contest will be held with collaboration of KalDer Bursa Department and Anadolu Karikatürcüler Derneği (Anatolian Caricaturists Society) for the 5th time within the 16th Quality and Success Symposium which is going to take place in Bursa between 13th - 14th of April 2018.
1. Topic of the Contest: "MANAGING TRANSFORMATION"
Explanation about the topic of the contest: The Ephesian philosopher Herakleitos explains the problem of being in the metaphysical understanding of ancient times with the word 'Panta rei'. According to him, the universe is a constantly flowing process, a change that has no beginning and end. In this process there is nothing that does not change and goes on.
Cities are being reshaped according to needs. The sources that are at risk of extinction, necessitate harmonious production with nature. Innovative ideas stand out in the face of changing customer expectations. Countries are examining their economic, social, cultural and technological structures. New strategies are identified in national development policies and plans. Today's changes and transformations seem to make it possible for us to grant Herakleitos, the ancient metaphysical thinker. Today's young and equipped managers take their place in the business world and see the inevitability of using the time effectively and keeping up with the times quickly. The industry and the service sectors know the necessity as much as in whole life, to keep pace with this transformation.
Thus, the Topic of the KalDer International Cartoon Contest, which we carried out this year, is "MANAGING TRANSFORMATION".
1. Last date for application: 17 January 2018, Wednesday
2. The contest is receptive internationally for all amateur and professional caricaturists.
3. Application: Limited with three (3) caricatures, may be e-mailed to bursa@kalder.org in 300 dpi jpg format.

The caricatures will be published at www.facebook.com/kalder.bursa social media account between 22.01.2018 - 31.01.2018 for detection of plagiarism and resemblance. Objections will not be considered after these dates.
5. Competing caricatures may be printed and used in KalDer organisations (posters, books, albums, postcards, brochures, invitations, exhibitions, etc.) and published in internet environment. One of the artworks may be used as the main visual of the 16th Quality and Success Symposium which will be held in Bursa between 13th to 14th of April 2018.

Received catalog of the 19th Novomestsky Osten Cartoon Contest 2017, Slovakia

Received today the color catalog of the 19th Novomestsky Osten Cartoon Contest 2017 in the Slovak Republic. The 14.75 x 21 cm sized catalog of quality paper has 48 pages including the covers. The cartoon on the back cover is by the 1st Prize-winning artist Oleksy Kustovsky from Ukraine. Below is the complete list of winners in the contest this year with theme "Happy Life". And some scans of cartoons in the catalog are followed.
The Novomestsky Osten Cartoon Contest was first organised in 1982 as the first festival of humorous drawings in the then Czechoslovakia. "Not only did it come into existence, it took firm roots," reminds Mr Josef Trstensky, the Mayor of Nové Mesto nad Vahom, in his foreword to the catalog: "A duo of enthusiasts - former Academy of Performing Arts graduates - were later joined by other Bratislava based artists, chief among them Viktor Kubal, the nestor of the Slovak caricature.
The Novomestsky osten took firm roots, and grew to such extent that in 2013 it became an international event." At present, they "are in the process of preparing the project documentation for the new gallery (of humorous drawings and satire), and if all goes to plan, the premises should be refurbished until the end of 2018, following which the gallery will be open."
Many thanks to the organizers for sending me this precious book of humor. It includes the works by four Turkish cartoonists as well, namely Musa Gümüş, Ömer Çam, Kaan Saatçi, and Kemal Özyurt.
