Lector in Fabula - European Cultural Festival

Ph. Francesco Paolo GassiWe spent the weekend in Conversano, a town in southern Italy that hosts Lector in Fabula, an annual European cultural festival. Leading up to the festival, Librexpression, an organization dedicated to cartoons and freedom of speech, organized a cartoon contest with the theme power and information in the digital age. First prize was awarded to Nikola Listes from Croatia, and we're proud that second and third prize went to two of our members, Emanuele Del Rosso and Fadi Abou Hassan respectively.

In addition to the award ceremony, the festival also featured a cartoon exhibition of the best cartoons sent in for this exhibition and a panel discussing last year's news through satire, featuring Marco De Angelis from Italy, Tjeerd Royaards from the Netherlands and Doaa Eladl from Egypt.
