17.PortoCartoon2015Dear Cartoonist,
2015 has been declared by the United Nations as the International Year of Light . Illuminating this subject with the light of the cartoon seems to us one of the best appeals to the artists of humor.
This is an issue of sovereign importance, which also shows many inequalities that exist worldwide. The light of the sun and moon is the same for everyone. But the other lights, electricity and all that goes with it, are the reason for the darkness in different parts of the world. This is the reflection that we intend to evoke. Come on with a humorous light! With the bright focus on progress and distortions in the spotlight and behind the scenes. In between is an undeniable truth: there is no light without shade!
Two great figures have been appointed for the 2015 edition of the Caricature Special Awards:
1 – The Portuguese football player (born in Madeira) Cristiano Ronaldo, a sports icon, winner of Golden Balls and Golden Boots;
2 – and the American writer Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961), Nobel Prize for Literature, who participated in the First World War a century ago. This participation, as a driver of the Red Cross and the correspondent of the Kansas City Star newspaper, inspired him A Farewell to Arms (1929), an emblematic work of his literary career.
The choice of this figures aim to target the ingeniousness of humour artists, and arises from other designations made since 2013: Manoel de Oliveira and José Saramago (in 2013); Nelson Mandela and Siza Vieira (in 2014).
We will be looking forward to receiving your most appreciated participation, with our best wishes for a 2015 full of humour,

16th PortoCartoon Festival 2014, Portugal



Dear Cartoonist,

The water is a key to life on the planet: Living Water / Living Earth!

This is the theme of the 16th PortoCartoon-World Festival 2014.

Ecology, environmental protection, biodiversity are concepts that do not dispense the water as a central element. When we talk about water, we speak of a common heritage of mankind.

Water is becoming not only scarce, as well as the target of a global wave of privatization. All over the world, many countries are losing supremacy over the water.

Water – ‘the blue gold’ of the 21st century – is no more than merchandise on the logic of the multinationals.

The dangers are on the agenda. Many researchers and movements of active citizenship have launched the alert. All very little. The Humor ALERT is missing.

PortoCartoon 2014 also presents two special Caricature awards: Caricature Award Nelson Mandela and Caricature Award Álvaro Siza Vieira.

One to distinguish the role of Mandela, Nobel Peace Prize in 1993, and the first black leader to assume the presidency of South Africa (1994-1999), after more than 25 years in prison under the apartheid regime.

The other is to celebrate the work of one of the most famous architect of our times. Álvaro Siza Vieira won more than thirty international awards, including the Pritzker Prize / Chicago (considered the “Nobel of architecture’).

We will be looking forward to receiving your most appreciated participation, with our best wishes for a 2014 full of humour,

Luís Humberto Marcos
