12th INTERNATIONAL DON QUICHOTTE CARTOON CONTEST’2020

12th INTERNATIONAL DON QUICHOTTE CARTOON CONTEST’2020

 


Theme: Say NO to "violence against Women!"

We are taking on another global societal issue after covering child marriages. “Violence against Women” will be the theme of 12th Don Quichotte Caricature Contest. 
Violenst against women and childs is one of the most widespread violations of human rights. Some national studies show that up to 70% of women have experienced physical and/or sexual violence in their lifetime from an intimate partner. To raise awareness and trigger action to end this global scourge, the UNobserves International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on 25 November. 
Unfortunately, violence against women and girls is deep-rooted in our societies and the international observance serves as a symbol of resistance as well as a call to action to eliminate gendered physical, economic and psychological violence. Violence against Women has been increasing in emerging countries. Femicide-killing women because of their gender-is a longstanding issue in the world. For example, there were 430 female homicides in 2019 alone in Turkey. Although illegal, child marriage in Turkey remains also prevalent along with countries such as India, Iran, Mexico, Ethiopia, Chad and Niger.
The purpose of this contest is to bring global awareness to this issue through the lens of caricaturists around the world and encourage solutions that will end this social crisis.

12. INTERNATIONALER DON QUICHOTTE KARIKATURENWETTBEWERB’2020

 

Thema: Sagt NEIN zur "Gewalt gegen Frauen!"

Nach dem Thema Kinderehe haben wir nun einen weiteren gesellschaftlichen Mißstand "Gewalt gegen Frauen und Mädchen" zum Gegenstand des 12. internationalen Karikaturwettbewerbes erkoren.
Die Gewalt gegen Frauen und Kinder ist weltweit eines der am meisten verbreiteten Verstöße gegen Menschenrechte. Nationale Untersuchungen einiger Länder ermittelten Raten von bis zu 70% Frauen, die im Laufe ihres Lebens physischer, psychicher oder sexueller Gewalt durch ihre Familienangehörigen oder ihrer Ehemänner ausgeliefert sind.
Um diesem weltweiten Problem ein Ende zu bereiten, die Sensibilität zu erhöhen und Lösungen zu finden, haben die Vereinten Nationen (UN) den 25. November zum "Tag zur Bekämpfung von Gewalt gegen Frauen" ausgerufen.
Die Gewalt gegen Frauen und Mädchen ist in vielen Völkern tief verwurzelt. Internationale Beobachter glauben, dass dieser Tag zur Beendigung von physischer, ökonomischer oder psychischer Gewaltherrschaft über den weiblichen Teil der Gesellschaft dienen, zumindest ein Symbol des Widerstandes gegen dieses Unrecht darstellen kann. In Entwicklungsländern (in unterentwickelten Ländern) ist die Gewalt gegen Frauen sehr viel verbreiteter. Morde an Frauen aufgrund ihrer Geschlechtszugehörigkeit sind historische und tragische Tatsachen auf der ganzen Welt. Zum Beispiel wurden in der Türkei 430 Morde an Frauen allein im Jahre 2019 begangen. Trotz Verbote von Gesetzeswegen sind Kinderehen in Ländern wie Türkei, Ýndien, Ýran, Mexiko, Äthiopien, Tschad und Niger weit verbreitet.

Der Zweck unseres weltweiten Wettbewerbes ist, die Wahrnehmung dieser globalen Mißstände zu erhöhen und Beiträge zur Lösung zu finden, oder zielführende Anstrengungen dafür zu fördern.



Wettbewerbsregeln:
1) Die Teilnahme am Wettbewerb ist nur über das Internet möglich (violenceagainstwomen2020@gmail.com). (mit lebenslauf+adresse..)

4) Einsendeschluss ist der 31. March 2020.
5) Die Jury wird vom 10. bis 20. April 2020 aus allen eingereichten Karikaturen eine Vorauswahl treffen und 100 Finalisten bestimmen. Diese werden 10 Tage lang in sozialen Medien und auf den Homepages von Don Quichotte vorgestellt. 
6) Die Jury wird zwischen dem 1. und 7. Mai 2020 diese Arbeiten auswerten und die Ergebnisse am 15. Mai 2020 bekanntgeben.
7) Die Preisverleihung wird im Rahmen der Eröffnung der Wettbewerbsausstellung am Juni in Stuttgart.

12. ULUSLARARASI DON QUICHOTTE KARÝKATÜR YARIÞMASI’2020


Konu: "Kadýna Karþý Þiddet"e HAYIR deyin!.. 

Çocuk evliliklerinden sonra baþka bir toplumsal toplumsal konu olan “Kadýnlara ve kýzlara yönelik þiddet”i, 12. Don Quichotte Uluslararasý Karikatür Yarýþmasý’nýn konusu olarak belirledik.
Kadýnlara ve çocuklara yönelik þiddet, insan haklarýnýn en yaygýn ihlallerinden biridir. Bazý ülkelerin ulusal araþtýrmalarý, kadýnlarýn % 70’inin yaþamlarý boyunca yakýnlarýndan ve eþlerinden psikolojik ve/ya cinsel þiddet yaþadýðýný belirtiyorlar. Bu küresel sorunu sona erdirmek, farkýndalýðý artýrmak ve çözüm üretmek adýna Birleþmiþ Milletler, 25 Kasým’ý "Kadýna Yönelik Þiddetle Mücadele Günü" olarak ilan etti. 
Kadýnlara ve genç kýzlara yönelik þiddet tüm toplumlarda derinlere dayanmaktadýr. Uluslararasý gözlemciler, bu günü toplumsal cinsiyete yönelik fiziksel, ekonomik ve psikolojik þiddeti ortadan kaldýrmak için ayný zamanda bir direniþ sembolü olarak da iþlev göreceðine inanmaktadýrlar. Geliþmekte olan (geri kalmýþ) ülkelerde kadýna yönelik þiddet daha da ileri boyutlardadýr. Kadýnlarýn cinsiyetlerinden dolayý öldürülmesi ne yazýk ki tüm dünyada uzun zamandýr devam eden trajik bir sorundur. Örneðin; Türkiye’de sadece 2019 yýlýnda 430 kadýn cinayeti iþlendi. Yasadýþý olmasýna raðmen çocuk evlilikleri; Türkiye, Hindistan, Ýran, Meksika, Etiyopya, Çad ve Nijer gibi ülkelerde yaygýn þekilde devam ediyor.Y arýþmamýzýn amacý, dünyadaki karikatürcüler aracýlýðýyla bu konuda küresel Yarýþmamýzýn amacý, küresel kriz olarak ele aldýðýmýz bu toplumsal sorunun çözümüne yönelik çabalarý teþvik etmek ve bu alanda farklýlýk yaratmaktýr.

Introduction of Lao Zi

In traditional accounts, Laozi’s personal name is usually given as Li Er (李耳Laozi is traditionally regarded as the author of the Tao Te Ching (Daodejing), though the identity of its author(s) or compiler(s) has been debated throughout history.It is one of the most significant treatises in Chinese cosmogony. As with most other ancient Chinese philosophers, Laozi often explains his ideas by way of paradox, analogy, appropriation of ancient sayings, repetition, symmetry, rhyme, and rhythm. In fact, the whole book can be read as an analogy – the ruler is the awareness, or self, in meditation and the myriad creatures or empire is the experience of the body, senses and desires.

The Tao Te Ching, often called simply Laozi after its reputed author, describes the Dao (or Tao) as the source and ideal of all existence: it is unseen, but not transcendent, immensely powerful yet supremely humble, being the root of all things. People have desires and free will (and thus are able to alter their own nature). Many acts "unnaturally", upsetting the natural balance of the Tao. The Tao Te Ching intends to lead students to a "return" to their natural state, in harmony with Tao.[45] Language and conventional wisdom are critically assessed. Taoism views them as inherently biased and artificial, widely using paradoxes to sharpen the point.

Introduction of Huineng (Hui-neng) (638—713)

Huineng (Hui-neng) is a seminal figure in Buddhist history. He is the famous “Sixth Patriarch” of the Chan or meditation tradition, which is better known in Japanese as "Zen”. The focus of an immense body of lore that grew over the centuries, Huineng’s life mirrors the fortunes of Chan itself – a provincial Chinese version of Buddhism that rose to become a major religious and cultural force throughout East Asia. Tradition holds that Huineng was an uncouth “barbarian” youth who, because of his innate intuitive insight, surpassed his more cultured fellow monks to earn the official “dharma seal” certifying the authoritative transmission of Buddhist enlightenment, and thereby earning a lasting place in history. He is intimately associated with the Platform Sutra of the Sixth Patriarch, one of the most influential texts in all of Chinese Buddhism. Alleged to be a sermon from the lips of Huineng himself, this text provides a gripping first-person account of the Master’s life. 

Its cryptic yet insightful discussion of Chan practice lays out the central concerns of Chan cultivation. Huineng’s discussion of the themes of inherent enlightenment, sudden awakening, and the non-dual nature of wisdom (Sanskrit: prajna) and meditation (Sanskrit: dhyana) resounds through later generations of Chan teachers, and continues to pose difficult philosophical challenges to this day.
