47th World Gallery of Cartoons Awards, Skopje

Deadline: 31 March 2016
Open to: everyone
Prize: grand prix, cartoon award, comic award, satiric drawing award, special awards


The World Gallery of Cartoons is the one and only event of such provenance in Macedonia, the oldest in the Balkan and one of the most long-standing in the world. It was established back in 1969 by the newsroom of the magazine Osten, making artistic forms like cartoon, satiric drawing and comic strips available to the wider audience.

The World Gallery of Cartoons through time has experienced different fortune – from being completely supported by the community and institutions, to transition inability to publish an annual edition. The reappearance of the World Gallery of Cartoons in the past few years was marked by personal engagement and enthusiasm by those who refused to agree to its elimination and hence managed to sustain it at the pleasure of the community – domestic and international.


The competition is open for everyone.


  • Grand prix for life achievement- USD 5,000;
  • Cartoon award- USD 1,000;
  • Comic/strip award- USD 1,000;
  • Satiric drawing award – USD 1,000;

  • Cico Award in honor of cartoonist Vasilije Popovic – Cico.
