Reloaded: Cartoon Africa International Biennial 2014

Logo_small'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 barrier.'

Nigerian cartoonist and CM-member Francis Odupute is one of the organizers of The Cartoon Africa International Biennal (CAIB) 2014. They have put out a call for entries for the festival, which will take place in Nigeria in the last quarter of 2014.
