best drawings published in the world press is still our mission. Caricatures, Editorial

in 2018, views from different cultures, drawings where the cartoonists picture and
criticize the ways of the world with humour and a sharp eye. The Jury’s task is
always hard: many works from various cultures and a growing quality. To make
judging easier and to guarantee the quality and rigour to the final selection,
it is of the most importance that the authors read carefully the regulation

saloon demands a universal participation and clear and equal rules for everyone.
