Cartoon Movement is on summer break in August. That means we’ll not be publishing any editor’s choices and we’ll be less active on our social media channels. We’ll be back on August 30th with cartoons, comics and new projects!
The last dispatch before we go on our annual summer break is out. And although activities are winding down now, July was actually one of the busiest months this year, with not one but two cartoon exhibitions. Read our newsletter to get an impression of these and to see this month’s most popular cartoons.

On July 14, our exhibition Framing the War was opened in the Sound and Vision media museum in The Hague by the director of Sound and Vision and the mayor of The Hague. Framing the War shows 100 days of war in Ukraine with about 125 photos of the Dutch press agency ANP and 75 international cartoons from Cartoon Movement.
In the photos posted below, we'll try to give you an impression of the exhibition, but we highly recommend that, if you're in the area, you go see the exhibition for yourself. It will be on display until September 4. More information here.

The sketches were uploaded to the. Professional cartoonists from across the globe chose the best, most inspiring ideas and turned them into editorial cartoons. On Friday July 8th a selection of these cartoons was on display in The Hague, during the festive closing conference of the Justice and Security Summerschool.
