International Cartoon Competition: The Art of Resistance
We are very happy and proud to announce that Cartoon Movement is launching an international cartoon competition
with the theme resistance. We would be very grateful if you could help us spread the word to cartoonists all over the globe:
International Cartoon Competition & Exhibition: The Art of Resistance
Cartoon Movement is inviting cartoonists from around the globe to send in their work for a new international cartoon competition and exhibition with the theme resistance.
"What would you do?" - may be the most asked question when we talk about oppression and resistance during World War II. Many of us wonder: what would I do under those circumstances?
Resistance is not a simple choice. The outcome of resistance is never clear, and the consequences of such a decision could be dire, to you, or, perhaps even worse, to your family.
Great ideals such as (fighting for) freedom, democracy and human rights are often associated with resistance, but perhaps the human conscience is the most important motivator for us to take action, to resist when we see our fellow humans facing injustice and or repression. Not resisting out of a love for exalted values, but out of a sense of responsibility for the people around you.
In the age of Trump, growing inequality, corporate greed and rising populism, resistance is still as relevant as ever. Show us your way to resist in a cartoon!
