After overcoming the financial restrictions that forced the 2016 interregnum, WORLD PRESS CARTOON is back on track! Our main event will be hosted by the Portuguese municipality of Caldas da Rainha, where the works of the top world class cartoonists will be on display in early Summer 2017.
Caldas da Rainha, 90 km North from Lisbon, is the hometown of the greatest Portuguese caricaturist of all times, Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro, 1846-1905, and World Press Cartoon organization is very happy and honoured with our new location. We maintain the last monetary prizes structure, with a Grand Prix of 10 000 euros. The nine prize winners will be invited to attend the Awards Ceremony to be held at CCC – Cultural and Congress Center of Caldas da Rainha main auditorium. Our mission, as always: to distinguish, exhibit, promote and award the best drawings published in the world press. Caricatures, editorial and gag cartoons that will make a retrospective view of the world’s current affairs in 2016, views from different cultures, drawings where the cartoonists picture and criticize the ways of the world with humor and a sharp eye. Because the WORLD PRESS CARTOON aims at gathering the best in the international production of humour drawings published in the Press every year, this is a meeting the professional cartoonists should not miss!
