Cartoon Competition



Hurry! The countdown begins. The deadline for the Southasian Cartoon Competition organised by Himal Southasian, the only regional magazine, published from Kathmandu, is approaching. In every country, state, province, city, village and society as well as across Southasia, there is a dramatically growing divide. To explore the various aspects of this gulf, Himal invites cartoonists to submit works on the subject Dramatic Divide: The distance between the powerful and the powerless. Established artists, wannabe cartoonists, new entrants and freelancers are all welcome, as long as the topic is relevant to Southasia. ?

A cash prize of USD 1000 will be awarded to the winning entrant, with USD 500 for the first runner-up, as well as publication of cartoons in Himal. All short-listed candidates will receive citations. Winning candidates will also be flown to Kathmandu for the Southasian Cartoon Congress in November, where the prize will be announced. The early closing date for submission is Monday, 1 September. The extended deadline is Wednesday, 1 October. ?
