European Cartoon Contest “Intercultural Dialogue”

Dear Cartoonist,

We are very pleased to invite you to participate on a European Cartoon Contest which theme will be “Intercultural Dialogue”, which deadline for the reception of works will be the 16th June 2008.
This contest’s theme is in accordance with the proclamation of 2008 as the European Year of Intercultural Dialogue.
The objective of this initiative of the European Commission is to promote the awareness of all citizens to respect the cultural diversity. The EU decision is in keeping with respect by several fundamental principles written in the Treaty establishing the European Community and the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the Union.
It is in line with these purposes that Portugal launches a European-Cartoon Contest with the theme “Intercultural Dialogue”, relying on the importance of the language of humour as a way to build and des-build the looks on the subject.
As per the contest of 2007 – Inequalities, Discrimination and Prejudice – this contest is for European authors, of any country, being part or not of the 27 countries of the European Union.

We do look forward to receive you participation!

Warm regards

The Director
