World Humor Awards 2017

Dear Artist,

We have the pleasure of inviting you to take part in the second edition of the international cartoon exhibition “World Humor Awards”, that will be held in Italy and more precisely in the area that corresponds to writer and cartoonist Giovannino Guareschi’s “Mondo Piccolo” (Little World).

The event will include a competition for cartoonists and the awarding of prizes for works of literature and show business that have made the most of humor.

The themes of the 2nd edition of the competition:

Theme Design: “Artificial Culture”
From artificial intelligence to virtual reality, internet, web, and social networks… How is our way of life changing.

Caricature: “Opera and Music” 

Participation in the cartoon competition is reserved for a limited number of selected artists and is therefore not open to entrants other than the cartoonists, caricaturists and professional illustrators indicated by the organisation.
For this reason, the competition rules and participation form will not be published on the website, as they will be sent only to the invited artists.
The event will take place from August 24th to December 15th 2017
The award ceremony will take place on 25th of August at the Terme Baistrocchi in Salsomaggiore.
The exhibition will also travel to Busseto, Fidenza, Fontanellato, Fiorenzuola d’Arda, Piacenza and Parma.

The deadline for sending artworks is June 10th 2017.
