Cartoon mural in Johannesburg
New cartoonist: Hugo Nemet

Your cartoon on a building in Johannesburg!

Calling all professional cartoonists! In a project that's not limited to just Cartoon Movement members, we're giving all cartoonists a shot at having their cartoon turned into a massive mural in downtown Johannesburg, South Africa.

We have asked young South Africans to share their vision of South Africa (hopes, fears, challenges etc.) by making a sketch.

Now, we are asking cartoonists to pick the best ideas and turn these into cartoons. This Thursday, we will select the best cartoon, which will be made into a giant mural on this building (the Downtown Music Hub) in downtown Johannesburg. The winning cartoon will receive 250 euro. The mural will be made by street artist Ras Silas Motse. It will be unveiled in an online event on November 11 by none other than Zapiro!




As you can see, the wall is quite tall and narrow. Please take that into account. We can also use the narrow strip on the sunside of the building, so your cartoon can turn a corner. You might be able to use this in your lay-out. This is a project with a tight deadline, so please send in your cartoons before October 28.

This project is organized and coordinated by our educational branch The Next Movement. If you have not registered as a cartoonist for The Next Movement yet, you can do so here.
