Entries are being sought for the 2010 International Political Cartoon Competition. The biennial competition is run by the Ken Sprague Fund, which was set up to commemorate the life and work of Ken Sprague, who died in 2004.
John Green, organiser of the competition told Bloghorn:
This year’s biennial Ken Sprague International Political Cartoon Competition is titled, ironically, Money Makes the World go Round. We are asking cartoonists to respond to this assertion in the way cartoonists can do best: mock it, take it apart, undermine it, sabotage it, question it and deflate it with their pens and brushes. We had such an enormous response to the last competition on Climate change and global warming, revealing an astounding quality of ideas and cartooning panache. We hope this year will see a similar high standard on a subject that affects us all. This year’s competition is co-sponsored by the North Devon Appledore Arts Festival and a selection of the best cartoons will be exhibited there.
Prizes wll be awarded for first, second and third, along with a special ’emerging artist’ award for 16-22 year olds. The deadline for submissions is the 1st May 2010.
