This weekend, the winners of Una Vignetta per L’Europa 2016 were announced in Ferrara, Italy. The concourse is organized by the European Commission in Italy in cooperation with Internazionale and VoxEurop, and awards the best political cartoons about Europe that have been published in Italian media. All the 50 finalists can be seen here.
The prize ceremony takes place during Internazionale in Ferrara, a festival that features over 240 journalists from all over the world.
This year's result is particularly noteworthy (for us), because all the awarded cartoonists are also members of Cartoon Movement:
First prize was won by Niels Bo Bojesen from Denmark, with a cartoon about Brexit.
Second prize was awarded to Marco De Angelis.
Third prize was given to Tjeerd Royaards, with a cartoon that was made the day ofter the Brussels attack in March 2016.
A special prize was given to Fabio Magnasciutti. (Translantion: OK, who expressed this desire?)
A cartoon by Giuseppe La Micela received the prize awarded by the public.
