  • António Antunes

    QUALITY AND FAIRNESS “As last year, we endeavoured to ensure that the 2006 World Press Cartoon jury represented a wide variety of perspectives and perceptions, combining cartoonists with other members of the press with strong professional ties to cartoons. We adopted new selection and voting procedures, after the experience acquired. The new rules allowed the entering of 2 works per category. The 464 works chosen reflects this change, also raising the standard of the salon in both the competition and the exhibition, a cause for satisfaction. In applying the rules to the letter, we may have caused a degree of incomprehension (hopefully only temporary) on the part of some authors. Nevertheless, we believe that the jury has a duty to act equitably and impartially, towards every work and its author. The main instrument of fairness is the strict adherence to the body's own rules and their stringent application is essential for the consolidation of the World Press Cartoon.”

    António Antunes began his professional career as a cartoonist on the Lisbon daily newspaper, República in 1974. It was that same year that he produced his first work for the Portuguese national weekly newspaper, Expresso, which has continued to publish an 'António' cartoon every week right up to the present day. Another of António's regular collaborations is with the French weekly magazine, Courrier International. In addition, his works are distributed throughout the United States by an international agency. He has been honoured during his career with an array of awards, highlights of which include winning the 1983 Grand Prix of the XXth International Salon of Cartoons in Montreal, Canada and the 1st Prize in the category, Editorial Cartoon at the 1986 edition of the same event. He received the Grand Prix d'Honneur at the XVe Festival du Dessin Humoristique in Anglet, France in 1993, the Premio Internazionale - Satira Politica (ex-aequo) in Forte dei Marmi, Italy in 2002 and most recently, the Stuart Carvalhais Grand Prix, Portugal in 2005. António was President of the jury for the second edition of the World Press Cartoon, of which he is also the Director.

  • Aris Malandrakis

    It was a great pleasure for me to participate as a member of the jury for the second edition of World Press Cartoon. The pleasure was not only due to the feelings of warmth generated by the friendly Portuguese committee and all of my fellow jury members, feelings that have not left me. It was mostly because of the special profile of the World Press Cartoon, which harvests the very best work of professional cartoonists all over the world. Examining those fascinating works in competition, published last year in hundreds of newspapers and magazines in so many different countries and languages gave me the greatest of pleasures that a reader can possibly derive from a journal. These works epitomise the troublesome year of 2005. From my personal perspective, I was struck by this fact on going into just a single room, where all of the editorial cartoons, caricatures and gags were gathered together, awaiting our deliberations and votes.

    Aris Malandrakis is the Cartoons Editor of the magazine “9”, a supplement of the leading Greek newspaper, Elefthterotypia. He has been the curator of many cartoon exhibitions, highlights among which have been: “Modern Greek Satire” at the Salon of Political Satire in Forte dei Marmi, Italy; the retrospective, “Greek Cartoons during World War II”, which was displayed in various Greek cities, in addition to the Museum of Satire, Forte dei Marmi and the Embassy of Greece in Rome; and “Paper Ball - Football in Cartoons”, which was held in the Olympic Stadium of Salonika. In addition to his press work, Aris is a radio and TV producer and presenter, in charge of the programme “Zig-Zag in Comics” on the State radio's second channel. He has also been responsible for several retrospective programmes on the history of cartoons and comic-strips. These have appeared on the State television's Channel 2 and on the commercial channel, Seven X. He has also written a book, “Paper Legends”, a history of Greek publications of comic-strips and cartoons from 1940 to 1970.

  • Marlene Pohle

    To serve on an international jury whose task is judging cartoons is an experience always marked by at least two distinguishing features. The first is the expectation of meeting up again with old friends and colleagues and of making new acquaintances. Tied in with this is the excitement of discovering a different country, city and customs. The second is accepting the enormous responsibility of having to choose the very best from among as many as two thousand cartoons. We know that it is impossible to be absolutely fair, but I found it rewarding during the World Press Cartoon selection process in Sintra to feel that every member of the jury put their best efforts into performing the task conscientiously and honestly. It was a real luxury to have three whole days devoted to the selections (one for caricature, the second for editorial cartoon and the third for gag cartoon). This gave us ample opportunity to discuss the works, which was invaluable because we did not always reach agreement so easily. And that was what I most appreciated about this jury; that we were able to discuss the selected works in a friendly, yet serious way. On a personal note, I would very much like to see the «wings» of this Salon reach out even further around the world, so that we might see even more countries represented. Being Argentinian, it is a particular honour for me that the majority of this year's winners are fellow-Latin Americans. I must stress that this was purely coincidental and can be explained by the fact that a high proportion of the entrants were from Latin America. It was immensely gratifying to see the high standard and great professionalism of the competing works, which obliges me to add a third distinguishing feature to my earlier remark. I am referring to the moments of pleasure and spontaneous laughter that we all shared during those three days as we studied and weighed up the cartoons. Moments that finally confirmed my feeling that we cartoonists have, in fact, the best job in the world!

    Marlene Pohle began her career as a cartoonist in 1984 on the Revista Hortensia in Córdoba, Argentina. She has lived in Germany since 1992, where she has worked for the magazines Nebelspalter, Feconews and Don Quichotte, among others. Marlene has been a jury-member at various cartoon festivals around the world including Belgium, Germany, Cuba, Turkey, Spain, the Czech Republic, Italy, Portugal and France. In 1996, she was a founder-member of the German branch of FECO (Federation of Cartoonists' Organisations) and was elected as its first President. Since July 2005, Marlene has been the President of the worldwide body of FECO. Among her various prizes, Marlene has received the 'Curuxa of Graphic Humour' 1st Prize of the Fene Museum of Cartoons, Spain (2000), 1st Prize of the Deventer Cartoon Festival, Holland (2003) and has been a prizewinner of the 24th Salon of Humour and Press Cartoons, St Just-le-Martel, France (2005).

    I found the whole process of judging a couple of thousand cartoons both exhilarating and disturbing. But I tried hard not to show it. Exhilarating because the quality of some of the work made me determined to go home and try harder in my own work and disturbing because I find it almost impossible to judge one cartoon against another. How do you balance the work of someone who has taken several days to illustrate a political theme in full colour against someone who came up with a great idea and had twenty minutes to draw it before a deadline? Still, through a process of discussion, debate, lecturing by the biggest person in the room and arm-wrestling, we came to conclusions with which we were all broadly happy. But, like all art, the importance of the work is vested in the creation of it, not in what other people think about it. So, to all cartoonists everywhere, I would recommend the words of Ricky Nelson, the American pop singer, when you next sit at your drawing board with a blank piece of paper: ''You can't please everyone, so you've just got to please yourself''.

    Martyn Turner gave up his job as co-editor of the award-winning Northern Ireland magazine, Fortnightin 1976 to contribute political cartoons to the Irish Timeson a daily basis. He is still doing that today, 30 years later, as well as working for a sunday paper in the UK. In the last 3 decades, he has received awards for his work from both home and abroad including being the only cartoonist to be named “Commentator of the Year” at the Irish Press Awards. He has received two honorary doctorates from Universities in Ireland for his services to satire and politics. His 17th collection of cartoons will be published in October this year.

  • Odile Conseil

    CARTOONS, UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE It was an extremely enjoyable and fascinating experience for me to participate as a member of the World Press Cartoon jury. Enjoyable, because to spend several days scrutinising a vast number of artistic creations from all over the world is not exactly an ordeal - far from it! - even if the duty to select just a handful of winners sometimes sparked off a kind of combat that was either personal and internal or that involved other jury-members. Fascinating, because our efforts as a jury – just as this catalogue and the exhibition – have proven to me that the press cartoon 'speaks' in a truly universal language. Cartoonists from China, Holland and Brazil will have far more in common than journalists from these countries, whose power and art is the word. It therefore follows that the cartoon can reach out and touch a much wider readership… so few words and so much meaning! That we should come together to decide on the prizes for this year's World Press Cartoon at precisely the time when a part of the Moslem world was in uproar following the publication of twelve cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammed brought home to us, right on cue, the extent to which the press cartoon can have an impact. Even if, to take the case in point, it concerns cartoons that were used to serve negative purposes. Is it only a coincidence that one of the cartoons awarded a prize by our jury, the work of the Franco-Dutch Willem, openly mocks the Catholic Church? This cartoon, which is both pertinent and impertinent, made us laugh – a sign of good mental and democratic health. Those cartoons about Mohammed could equally have made us laugh. This World Press Cartoon confirms at the most appropriate moment that the cartoonist's role is to dip his or her pen into those places that tickle, even those places that may hurt some people. In two years, the World Press cartoon has shown us its smiling, serious side and its professionalism. In the years to come, its international character will be confirmed. It has already been able to remind us that a good press cartoon generates reactions, reflection. And of course, laughter.

    Odile Conseil is a journalist. She works for the French weekly magazine Courrier International since 1992, where she has been in charge of several desks: business, technology, France, people. She has a love affair with cartoons since 1999, when she has been in charge of the first exhibition of international cartoons that Courrier International has organized. Today, she is in charge of the agency created by Courrier International to publish cartoons in newspapers or elsewhere in France and Europe.
