On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Turkish and Moroccan communities
in Belgium, Beltud, the Belgian-Turkish Friendship Association, is launching the
second edition of the cartoon contest in collaboration with its partners Press
Cartoon Belgium and European Cartoon Centre. Through the competition "50
years in Belgium" that is open to all, Beltud calls all creative minds to illustrate
the 50 years of immigration, the aspects of living together in a multicultural
society and the bonds between different communities.
A jury of professional cartoonists, of which Clou, duBus, Vadot, Philippe Bercovici, Kim, Marec
and Canary Pete will select the first three winners who will be awarded the respective prizes of
1000 €, 750 € and 500 €. A selection of the best cartoons will then be exhibited across the
country, in important places of several cities, including the Flemish Parliament.
