Between December 2 and December 10, you can share your thoughts on press freedom with hashtag #digitalcartoonwall. Our cartoonists will take the best ideas and turn them into cartoons. The digital cartoon wall is part of the World Press Freedom Conference; you can find more information on our project page.
