Cartoon competition update
The entry period for the Journalism without fear or favour cartoon competition ended on March 1. Although the period for sending cartoons was just 19 days, we received 600 eligible entries from over 200 cartoonists from around the globe.
The jury will convene next week to select the cartoons that will be exhibited at the World Forum and to determine the winner that will be invited to The Hague in April.
The jury is formed by Zunar, Pedro X. Molina and Niels Beugeling.
Zunar is a renowned cartoonist from Malaysia. In 2015 he faced up to 43 years in prison for criticizing the Malaysian government. The charges were dropped after the change of government in 2018.
Pedro X. Molina is an internationally acclaimed political cartoonist who fled his native Nicaragua during a crackdown on journalists and government critics in 2018.
Niels Beugeling is the former director of the Press Museum in Amsterdam. He is the chairman of the Press & Print Foundation, dedicated to promoting editorial cartoons through exhibitions and by giving out an annual award for the best political cartoon in the Netherlands.
