The Art of Resistance: The Winners

6a014e5f5d3c7c970c01b7c93ac8ea970b-750wi

With a total 1781 submissions from 76 countries we think our first international cartoon competition was a huge success! Out of all these submissions we made a shortlist of 200 cartoons; on March 5, this shortlist was presented to a professional jury, tasked with the difficult job to select the cartoons that will be featured in the upcoming exhibition ‘The Art of Resistance’ and to determine the winners.

The jury consisted of Hajo, a well-known Dutch cartoonist, Saskia van Loenen, chairperson of Pers & Prent (a foundation promoting political cartoons and organizer of the yearly Dutch cartoon award Inktspotprijs) and Michiel van Hattem, president of vfonds, a Dutch NGO with a focus on peace.

Together, they selected 57 cartoons, including 9 honorable mentions and 3 winners. Today, we announced the winners at the Freedom Festival in Flushing, the Netherlands.

Student Competition

 

Header - lesbrief

In March, we also launched a competition for high school and college students in Zeeland (a province in the south of the Netherlands), challenging students to create their own cartoons about resistance. CM editor and cartoonist Tjeerd Royaards gave a series of workshops to explain the power of cartoons and show students how to make a good cartoon. We received close to 200 student submissions. Here we present the winners and the official selection:
