  • António Antunes

    A SALON FOR GROWTH “Here, as in other areas of life, the road is constructed as we go along it. In the first edition of the World Press Cartoon, we have drawn many lessons from the diverse sensitivities gathered together on the jury, as well as from the operational questions that always arise in any new project. However, we have also confirmed certain points of view. The composition of the jury – a combination of recognised cartoonists, other members of the journalistic profession and researchers of graphic humour – has revealed itself to be the most suitable for the purpose of settling the annual discussions as to what are the best works and who are the best proponents. A summary will be drawn up from all of our work. The rules governing the next edition will have some minor adjustments which will take into account the experience of 2005 and we will perfect the methods of selection and voting, in order to build a road towards an ever-evolving, ever-stronger World Press Cartoon.”

    António Antunes saw his first editorial cartoon in print in the Lisbon daily, “República” in 1974, the same year in which he began a regular collaboration with the weekly newspaper, Expresso”, which continues to publish his cartoons every week. His works are regularly published in the French weekly, “Courrier International” and distributed in the United States by an international agency. In 1983, António was awarded the Grand Prix by the jury of the “XXth International Salon of Cartoons” in Montreal, Canada. Three years later, he won the first prize in the Editorial Cartoon category at the same salon. Among other distinctions, he received the Grand Prix d’Honneur at the “XVe Festival du Dessin Humoristique” in Anglet, France in 1993 and the Prémio Internazionale Satira Politica (ex-aequo) in Forte dei Marmi, Italy in 2002. The author of several books of editorial cartoons and caricatures, António was the President of the jury of the first edition of the World Press Cartoon, of which he is also the salon’s Director.

  • Chico Caruso

    I WILL BE BACK! “ My experience as a member of the jury in salons of humour leads me to imagine that the first World Press Cartoon has improved on the modus operandae of the genre. Three days devoted to judging the works seems ideal: on the first day, the most likely candidates are selected; on day two, the awards are decided; and on the third, everything that has happened so far is discussed, giving us the possibility of attempting to correct some of the injustices that always arise in human judgements of any kind, even those related to humour. And at night, as we all know well, everything grows larger; the cartoons reveal themselves to the memory with an individual strength that is not revealed when they are all viewed together… The decision to compose the jury with a majority of professional cartoonists – as well as the requirement to include the original publication of the work and the technique used in the case of computer-produced art – signifies that in the last analysis, it is the profession itself and its proponents who are being most prized. I cannot say that I have been totally satisfied with the final decisions – in fact, this would only happen if the jury thought exactly like me - but then, I have never managed that in any of the salons in which I took part. As Sábat, another illustrious jury-member, once said: “democracy would be just fine if we could find a way to stop the others speaking…”. My congratulations go to the Mayor of Sintra and to António, Rui Paulo da Cruz and everybody who has contributed to the launch of the first World Press Cartoon. I hope to return next year, either as a member of the jury or as a prize-winner at the second World Press Cartoon…”

    Chico Caruso obtained a degree in architecture at the University of São Paulo, Brazil, but has devoted his working life exclusively to the domain of humour since1967, the year in which he published his first cartoons in “Folhas da Tarde”. Since 1984, he has been the resident first-page cartoonist on the Rio de Janeiro daily, “O Globo”. In addition, his daily cartoon receives a wider audience via the most important Brazilian TV news programme, the National News on TV Globo. In 1976, Chico Caruso won the first prize in the Humorous Cartoon category at the 3rd Piracicaba Festival. He has had numerous books published, including “Pablo, Mon Amour”, a biography of Pablo Picasso in 26 caricatures. He has written the play, “O Amigo da Onça”, which tells the story of Pericles Maranhão on the magazine, “O Cruzeiro” during the 1950s. Besides his cartoonist and writing careers, Chico Caruso sings in the group, “Conjunto Nacional”, which comprises the humorists Paulo Caruso, Luis Fernando Veríssimo, Aroeira and Redi, which has performed in many comedy shows in Brazil and abroad.

  • Hermenegildo Sábath

    AN EVENT OF SUBSTANCE “It has given me great satisfaction to participate in the World Press Cartoon as a member of the jury. It has served, above all, to confirm that the Portuguese are a dignified, respectful and respectable people, relentless defenders of the rules and who do not follow preconceptions or prejudices. It was against this background that the decisions were scrupulously taken, case by case, as it should be, and obeying at all costs both the spirit and the letter of the regulations. The prize-winning works, all of which are of the highest standard, were decided upon by means of the votes of the jury-members. They exemplify the character of the event, which aspires to endure long into the future.”

    Hermenegildo Sábat, who was born in Uruguay but lives and works in Argentina, is one of the most prestigious cartoonists in the South American press. He published his first cartoon in 1945 and has worked since 1949 with the leading titles of the press. His works have been published in almost all of the countries of the Americas and Europe. After being threatened and persecuted by the Argentine military dictatorship, he was honoured by the University of Columbia, New York, precisely for the work that he produced and the cartoons that were published during the years of the dictatorship. He has published 25 books and exhibited his cartoons and paintings in several countries.

  • Juan García Cerrada

    A SALON FOR PROFESSIONAL CARTOONISTS “The editorial cartoon and the caricature are, undoubtedly, essential elements of the press. However, there has existed an enormous void in terms of recognising and honouring the professionals of the genre. The World Press Cartoon reflects the need to fill this void and to become the most important stage for the proponents of the editorial cartoon, the caricature or the gag cartoon throughout the world and thus, give the recognition due to the artists who for too long have been in the shadows. The hard work and dedication that have gone into organising this event has been fully rewarded by the interest and participation of such a large number of the best authors in the world. For everything that has been achieved so far, the initiative is to be applauded and I wish it all the best for the coming editions.”

    Juan García Cerrada is an academic researcher and director of the Graphic Humour Programme of the Fundación General at the Universidad de Alcalá, Spain. As a consequence of this post, he directs the magazine “Quevedos” , which specialises in news and information on the cartoon world. He organises the Quevedos Iberian-American Graphic Humour Show and Prize, which is sponsored by the Spanish Ministries of Culture and Foreign Affairs and Cooperation. He also coordinates the collection, “Historia del Humor Gráfico Iberoamericano”, published by Editorial Milenio and by the Fundación General de la Universidad de Alcalá.

  • Pascal Phillipe

    LET’S ALL LAUGH TOGETHER! “Editorial cartoon, caricature or gag cartoon; more than 150 events in over 40 countries are dedicated annually to the genre. Yet, how many newspaper and magazine readers could name one of their creators off the cuff? Very few of them, undoubtedly. Those events that manage to capture the public’s attention, when the works’ exposure goes beyond the scope of the classroom, are not the same that the authors themselves frequent. Many of these initiatives have strictly limited resources. Others, heralded as periodical, vanish without trace. In addition, what is there in common between the Lithuanian Velocartoon and the Pulitzer Prize, the USA’s famous award that lauds cartoonists as well as other professionals within journalism? They do have at least one thing in common: their existence does not go beyond the characteristics of a club, the audience being the sum of its members’ interests. Nevertheless, the number and geographical dispersal of the events, ranging across every continent, is a testament to an expanding trend. It is a trend that has lacked an axis and a reference, not to mention a purpose. In deciding to baptise the salon of their creation, World Press

    Pascal Philippe is a journalist and Head of the Photography and Graphics Department of the French weekly, Courrier International, published in Paris by the Le Monde group. Having created the department, Pascal Philippe succeeded in attracting the best international cartoonists to the paper and establishing their editorial cartoons as a trademark of the Courrier. Pascal Philippe also directs a course in press cartoon at the Ecole Supérieure des Arts Graphiques (ESAG – Penninghen, Paris), which was formerly the Académie Julien.
