Deadline for the 15th PortoCartoon World Festival, Portugal, is 12 March 2013
Already into the second decade of this century, the world is still in crisis and full of contradictions.
The three words mobilizing democracy remain shy. So here is an invitation to the most universal language to show the current situation.
The three flags of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity need to fly with universal humour.
The pencil may well be the torches of modernity.
To illuminate the crowds and to scream to the powers of all colours that the world has to change.
Humanity is far ahead and everywhere, before the numbers.
Please open wings, all the HUMOUR to pass!
For Freedom! For Equality! For Fraternity!
You can also show how can honour someone through caricature.
Two symbols of humanity - José Saramago (Nobel of Literature in 1998) and Manoel Oliveira (the world's oldest filmmaker in activity) - are just there for the evocation of the humour.
Both of them are strict defenders of the liberty, equality and fraternity principles.
With wishes for a 2013 full of humour,
we will show that the cartoon does not go in separate ways with
Liberty, Equality and Fraternity
A lesson for those who (mis) rule the world!
