Dear cartoonist friends,
Unhook the humor to make the world better!
Make tourism, helping us to know everything we should not do. And many of us do not want to know. Make sustainable tourism, with your unsustainable humor!
If your humor is caustic and your pencils are pointing to the wounds of the world, all the universe should watch out. Nothing will be left out. Not even the ‘sustainable tourism for development’!
In the field of caricature, two great figures call for the exercise of beauty distortion. Picasso began himself by caricaturing the world of extremely cubic shape; Guterres, with his ups and downs in politics, reaches the top of world diplomacy as a ‘long-distance runner’. Both are a pertinent pretext for a razor-sharp demonstration of the most universal language (after or before the music?).
To participate in this nineteenth edition of PortoCartoon-World Festival is to give the world a precious jewel: an opportunity to laugh and to think.

Dear friends cartoonists,
2015 is very important year for OSTEN, as this year we are celebrating the 70-years anniversary of its establishment (it was established 1st January 1945), while last 2014 was the 45-years anniversary of the 1st World Gallery of Cartoons (20 August 1969). These are respectful jubilees, but therefore the responsibility for running OSTEN and the World Gallery of Cartoons is huge…
Over the time, OSTEN has experienced different fortune – from being completely supported by the community and institutions, to transitional inability for realization of the basic activities. In that transitional period, from 2005 to 2008 – three editions of the World Gallery of Cartoons were not held, and that affects with disorder in the years of its organizing. That is why, the last edition of the World Gallery of Cartoons, instead of jubilee 45th, it was 42nd World Gallery of Cartoons – Skopje 2014.
Last year, 2014, on the occasion of the 45-year anniversary of the World Gallery of Cartoons, OSTEN made a resolution to organize three thematic digital cartoon competition, who will fulfill the missed editions and thus will ensure the continuity of the World Gallery of Cartoons.
That was the intention for organizing:
43rd World Gallery of Cartoons – Skopje 2014
(Digital Cartoons Competition on theme ‘Summer’)
Selector: Miroslav Georgievski Miro, Macedonia (cartoonist)
Ross THOMSON, United Kingdom
44th World Galley of Cartoons – Skopje 2014
(Digital Cartoons Competition on theme ‘Wine’)
Selector: Dragan Popovski, Macedonia (cartoonist)
Doru AXINTE, Romania
Ilja KATZ, Israel
Valentin GEORGIEV, Bulgaria
45th World Gallery of Cartoons – Skopje 2014
(Digital Cartoons Competition on theme ‘Football’)
Selector: Mice Jankulovski, Macedonia (cartoonist)
Seyran CAFERLI, Azerbaijan
Igor SMIRNOV, Russia
King Shan LI, China
For each edition of the World Gallery of Cartoons (Thematic Competition of Digital Cartoons), catalog will be published, where all participants of the competition will be presented. The catalog will be sent to each participant via post mail.
According to the propositions, for the awarded artists an exhibition will be organized in OSTEN Gallery Skopje.
To all cartoonists who took part on the 43rd / 44th / 45th World Gallery of Cartoons Skopje 2014
– THANK YOU FOR THE PARTICIPATION!
And… Follow us, other thematic competitions for digital cartoons will follow, as a counterbalance to the established proposition on the World Gallery of Cartoons from 2014 on – to be eligible only original, hand drawn cartoons, satiric drawings and comic/strips with free theme.
This year, as a result of the continual organization of the World Gallery of Cartoons from 1969, we are announcing 46th WORLD GALLERY OF CARTOONS Skopje 2015.
You are very welcome to take part in this prestigious event!
