  • António Antunes

    ABSOLUTE NORMALITY “For this year, and for the very first time, we had a World Press Cartoon jury made up exclusively of cartoonists. What may be stated about the work carried out is that we kept to the tradition of selecting and awarding quality pieces of work featuring a range of different techniques and styles and from a highly diverse set of sources. The jury meetings were engaging and intense. There was individual analysis, exchange of opinions and collective decisions. Indeed, they were exactly what we had always idealised and which in the end resulted in the depth of quality, in both graphical and editorial terms, emerging to the fore as the awards were attributed. We may proudly state that these results demonstrate an... absolutely and comforting normality... whoever peruses this catalogue, with attention and a critical spirit, will reach that conclusion for themselves.” A.A.

    Cartoonist António Antunes began his career at the República Lisbon daily newspaper in March 1974. At the end of that year, he joined the Expresso where he remains publishing work each and every week. He has been distinguished with, among others, the following awards: 20th International Salon of Cartoons Grand Prix (Montreal, Canada, 1983), 1st Prize in the Editorial Cartoon category at the 23rd International Salon of Cartoons (Montreal, Canada, 1986), Grand Prix d’Honneur at the 15th Festival du Dessin Humoristique (Anglet, France, 1993), the Excellence Award for Best Newspaper Design (SND, Stockholm, Sweden, 1995); the International Political Satire Award (ex-aequo, Forte dei Marmi, Italy, 2002) and the Stuart Carvalhais Grand Prix (Lisbon, Portugal, 2005). Among António's individual exhibitions the following are a representative selection: Lisbon, 1982 and 2000, Oporto, 1983, 1995 and 2000, Rio de Janeiro, 1983 and 1991, Bonn, 1983, Düsseldorf, 1983, Macau, 1987 and 1996, Brasilia, 1998, Barcelona, 1999, Recife, 1999, Madrid, 2001 and Paris, 2004. He was president of the jury for the 4th World Press Cartoon event of which he has been director since its launch.

  • Carlos Brito

    HUMOUR IN TROUBLED TIMES Returning to Sintra thanks to World Press Cartoon was a pleasure multiplied by the I don't know how many hundreds of newspaper and magazine cartoons considered and re-considered throughout three days as a member of the pre-selection jury in 2007. Jumping between three languages, there were five of us with fingers flying, seeing and comparing and reaching with difficulty decisions as to which of the cartoons had touched us most. Those that had made us where not laugh out loud at least reflect simply on our condition as animals endowed with ever less capacity to reason while trying to survive an increasingly dehumanised world. Drawing is a serious business and current reality frequently plunges the cartoonist into a dark mood and hence the cartoons then produced are not the type to produce rib-splitting laughter. Really, as a profession it should be difficult to extract laughter from serious issues in these disturbed times when nobody else knows just where it is all heading or even if that is where we want to be going. Laughing at ourselves, clearly.

    Carlos Brito was born in 1943. He himself says by chance this was in Lisbon and in any case was later reborn in Paris in 1963 out of reasons of political activism. According to his parents, he was sketching his first cartoon around the age of two. He has yet to learn when he will complete his last. In Lisbon, he studied business out of obligation and graduated in Sociology out of pleasure in Paris and remains without any formal artistic training. A bank employee in Portugal between 1957 and 1963, he went on to try his hand at machine operator, secretary-typist, salesman, graphic designer, sociologist and a host of other trades when leaving Portugal for the cities of Paris and Hamburg. Since 1980, he has been an accredited journalist in France. Prior to that, he had already sketched post revolution Portugal for the República and Sempre Fixe (1974 and 1975) publications. He drew for the Diário de Lisboa up until it ceased publication. After 1980, his work has featured in a range of French publications: L'Unité, La Vie Ouvrière, Témoignage Chrétien, Les Nouvelles Littéraires, L'Évènement du Jeudi, L'Humanité, J'Accuse, etc. At the moment, he comments on French and international current affairs in the Le Canard Enchaîné and Le Monde newspapers. Among other awards, he recently won first prize at an exhibition on immigration (Stuttgart, Germany, 2007) and “Le Grand Prix de L´Humour Vache” (Saint-Just-Le-Martel, France, 2004).

  • Cássio Loredano

    Flicking through the catalogues of previous World Press Cartoon events gave me the clear sense of being in on the birth of a tradition that looks to the future with all the strength, exuberance and attractiveness of youth. Indeed: the 2008 Jury had placed before its gaze certainly the best in 2007 world production in this field of journalism. And it is precisely that aspect that confirms the vitality of the Sintra festival. Humour here is a serious thing - and the pencil professionals seemed to be striving to compete for this occasion, as would any athlete preparing for the great events. With the advantage that Sintra comes around every year and not just every four. Hence, it was not only a pleasure but an honour to accept the call from my comrade António Antunes to sit on this year's Jury and above all because it was a privilege to spend these days in the company of such intelligent, cultured and amiable persons as my hosts and companions on the jury. That comes from the heart.

    Cássio Loredano was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 1948. His entire professional life has been based in the media. Between 1968 and 1972, he was newspaper reporter and editor and radio news broadcaster in São Paulo. He began his caricaturist career in November 1972 with work published in the Opinião, Pasquim, O Globo and Jornal do Brasil newspaper. In the democratic transition of Portugal, in 1975 and 1976, he spent several months in Lisbon producing cartoons for the O Jornal weekly. Between 1977 and 1982 he lived in Germany and was a regular contributor to the Die Zeit and Frankfurter Allgemeine newspapers, among others. In 1982 and 1983, he produced caricatures for the dailies La Repubblica, in Roma, and Liberátion, Paris, and also making it onto the pages of Magazine Littéraire. And for the last 22 years, he has been a caricaturist for the Spanish daily El País, Madrid. Returning to Brazil in 1993, Cássio Loredano began to work with the Estado de São Paulo newspaper and since 2005 has contributed a daily column to its opinion pages, Sinais Particulares.

    ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE FENCE For the fourth consecutive year, World Press Cartoon provides the world with its annual panoramic view over gag, caricature and editorial cartoons. It not only awards the best cartoonists of the year with prizes of significant value but also raises the profile of their designs in a quality book. It is also the fourth time that I am participating at this important event but this time on the other side of the fence. That is, I was one of the Jury members. That position brings with it great responsibility as you set about choosing the best cartoons from among hundreds of works in conformity with very precise rules. It proved a fine artistic experience. I wish for a long life for this event and hope that the dynamic World Press Cartoon team may always continue with this project and with all the same enthusiasm.

    Habib Haddad was born in Lebanon who currently draws for the London based Arabic daily newspaper, Al Hayat. Haddad has published two cartoon albums in 1979 and 1998. Participating in many and different international exhibitions, his work has won awards at many events: Epinal (Special Jury Prize, 1991), Juvignac (Public's Choice Prize, 1996 and 1998), Porto Cartoon (Honourable Mention, 1999), Rouen City Prize (1999), Castelnaudary (Public's Choice Prize, 1999), Louviers (2000 and 2001), 5th Festival of Caricature (Public's Choice Grand Prix), Saint-Just-le-Martel (2001), Dubai (Arabic Press Grand Prix, 2002), Ottawa, Canada (National Press Club Honourable Mention, 2002), 1st Gag Cartoon Prize at the “Guelles d'Humor” exhibition (Paris, 2004), World Press Cartoon Honourable Mention (Sintra, 2005) and Francophone BD Prize (Tourcourg, 2007).

  • Hemant Morparia

    The chance to visit a new destination, make new friends and see highly creative works of humour seemed like an offer made by Don Corleone himself: one that could not be refused! True to promise, it proved to be a heady cocktail. The judging process was exhilarating, exasperating and exhausting! It is always easy to reject work. It is the selecting that is difficult (quality is, after all something that is tough to quantify and grade). Regional issues will always seem larger from the perspective of some one in proximity to them. The other jury members' viewpoints, however, help restore balance. World Press Cartoon helps us look beyond borders of all kinds - the external ones of geography and the internal ones of mind-sets and tastes. The Chinese laugh in the same way an Indian or a Lebanese laughs proving that the language of humour is a global one; the people are only speaking in its many dialects. Artificial walls between peoples are often made by leaders who do not laugh. Simultaneous laughter from people on both sides of this wall is all that is perhaps needed for these walls to come crumbling down. And World Press Cartoon is a step in that direction.

    Hemant Morparia was born in 1962 in India. He holds a degree in Medical Radiology from the University of Mumbai. Drawing since 1987, his cartoons are published in Indian and international publications: The Times of India (1993/2002), Mid-Day (2002/2008), Time Out Mumbai, Time Out Delhi, Money Life, New York Times, Knaleej Times, Toronto Star and Stitches. He has published two books: “Fanatics and their antics” and “Say aha!” (a book of cartoons dedicated to medical themes). He has also staged two individual exhibitions: at the Sakshi gallery (Mumbai, 2002) and in the National Gallery of Modern Art (Mumbai, 2003)
