'In times of crisis, who can afford a smile?' by Sherif Arafa

We've chosen to focus on the ongoing global economic crisis, looking for sharp and humorous comments on the crisis, how it plays out in different countries, and in the world at large. Contributions can be seen in the project newsroom, which will be open until November 19. The best cartoons will be published on the news service that is feeding into the web activities of the Why Poverty? week, broadcasted in 50 countries. You can help us choose the best cartoons by voting for your favorite(s).
