The Global Editorial Cartoon Competition, sponsored by the Center for International Private Enterprise, invites entries that capture key issues affecting the development of the cartoonist’s country. There are three categories:
* Democracy: address the state of democracy, either globally or in a specific country. There are many different opinions on what constitutes democracy and what democracy delivers for average citizens.
* Corruption: different forms of corruption, its negative impact on citizens, businesses, governments, and economies, as well as ways to combat it.
* Gender equality: cultural and legal barriers to women’s participation in society and ways to overcome them. Although women constitute a large share of countries’ economic and social force, they are all too often excluded from full political, economic, and social participation.
The competition is open to participants of all ages, professional and amateur cartoonists.
Participants may submit cartoons in all three categories and a maximum of two cartoons per each category. Submissions must be original, unpublished work.
* Hard-copy versions: A4 (210 X 297 mm ) or A3 (297 X 410 mm) and Letter (216 × 279 mm)
* Digital versions: Minimum resolution of 300 dpi and dimensions of 600 pixels wide and 400 pixels high (must be suitable for printing)
* Submissions may include different sizes of cartoons – single panel, a strip, or a two-tier strip.
* You may include text in the cartoon or in a caption in English as well as Arabic, Chinese, French, Russian, or Spanish, but English translation must be provided
