  • Adam Korpak

    I want to give a warm word of thanks to my friends António Antunes and Rui Paulo da Cruz who have made our jury work highly stimulating and surely much easier. It has also been most gratifying to have had the opportunity to work along the other members of the jury (Sophie-Anne Delhomme, Steve Brodner and Aristides Hernandez). Despite the diversity of our own cultures, since we have come from so much different parts of the world, it has been possible to create bonds of friendship and esteem in such a short time. Now that our collective work is completed, each one of us can go back to his own work in the knowledge that the objectives have been achieved. I must give a warm salute the participants that are going to be awarded these prestigious prizes. I am very happy because I myself am taking back with me a handful of very good memories and the friendship of all those that I have met over these working days together at the World Press Cartoon. Cartoons all over the world share one very same objective though artists may express themselves in the most diverse ways. I would say that cartoonists with ability and talent have the power of the small drops of water that, by their persistent action, can break the hardest stones.

    Adam Korpak was born in Krakow, Poland. He lives and works on the island of Kimito, in the south of Finland. Between 1968 e 1975 he studied Architecture and Industrial Design at Krakow Academy of Arts where he later became a teacher. He worked as an architect between 1974 and 1977, and later founded a graphic creation atelier. Since 1986, he creates illustrations for the largest Finnish newspaper, Helsigin Sanomat, and has also worked as an illustrator for almost all publishing houses and newspapers in Finland. He has taken part at drawings, paintings and graphic design exhibitions in many countries and several continents: Finland, Sweden, Norway, Netherlands, Italy, Switzerland, Poland, Japan and the USA. He has received many awards: Forte dei Marmi, Italy (2002); Biennale of Humour, Tolentino, Italy (2005); Grand Prix Satyrykon Legnica 2007, Poland; Gallarate, Italy (2007). He is a member of several international organisations: ICOGRADA, the Finnish artists associations Kuvittaja and Grafia as well as the Association of Polish Artists, ZPAP.

  • António Antunes

    At a time when the crisis lurks from every corner - and when each and every sector has its own particular crisis – the written press is not an exception and as such it is facing a crisis of its own. Squeezed between television, the free distribution papers and, above all, the internet, the press is going through some hard times. At this conjuncture, the pressure on newspapers and magazines leads to the breaking up of “the weakest links” and, among these, we find the humoristic drawing. We now have also our own crisis: reduction of the space allocated to the cartoon, exclusion of cartoonists and the relapse of censorship under the most varied shades. The press humour drawing, now under this renewed pressures, has been almost always confined to two peripheries – graphic arts and journalism – as a junior partner in spite of its heroes: from Daumier to Steinberg, from Levine to Ralph Steadman. In such a time of some disenchantment and pessimism, the World Press Cartoon continues, once again, to be ruled by merit acknowledged juries, awarding cartoons of the greatest quality, paying tribute to their authors, showing the world the strength of press humour drawings from its every corner, making room for the coexistence in its midst of different styles and cultures, thus praising the freedom of the press and, therefore, the excellence of its project. The World Press Cartoon is now, from my point of view, rather than just a necessary event, an indispensable one.

    António Antunes has published his first cartoons at the Lisbon daily "República" in March 1974. By the end of that year, he joined the weekly "Expresso" where he has continued to publish his works. He has received, amongst many other awards: the Grand Prix XX International Salon of Cartoons (Montreal, Canada, 1983); 1st Prize – Editorial Cartoon / XXlll International Salon of Cartoons (Montreal, Canada, 1986); the Grand Prix d´Honneur XV Festival du Dessin Humoristique (Anglet,França,1993); the Award of Excellence - Best Newspaper Design (SND, Stockholm, Sweden, 1995); Premio Internazionale Sátira Politica (ex-aequo, Forte dei Marmi, Itália, 2002); Grande Prémio Stuart Carvalhais (Lisbon, Portugal, 2005); and Prémio Cartoon/Caricatura Stuart Carvalhais (Lisboa, Portugal, 2007). He has held individual exhibitions in Portugal, Brazil, Macau, Germany, Spain, France and Luxembourg. He has also been a member of cartoons salon juries in Portugal, Brazil and Greece. Besides creating cartoons he also works in the fields of Graphic Design, Sculpture and Medal Designing. António has chaired the jury for the 5th edition of the World Press Cartoon of which he is a Director since its establishment.

  • Aristides E. Hernandez

    In a very short period of time, the World Press Cartoon managed to create a place for itself as one of the most important events in the world for graphic humour. The organisers have decided to take humour in a very serious way! And that is the reason why the event presents multiple virtues from the rigorous organisation to the quality of works awarded therein, works with a place among the best created ones nowadays in the field of humour drawings. My best wishes are that we may have the luck and the honour to enjoy the World Press Cartoon for a long time and for the sake of our art.

    Aristides E. Hernandez, Ares, was born in the city of Havana in 1963. He has a Medical School degree with specialization on Psychiatry. He published his first cartoon in 1984 and his works have been printed in publications in many countries. He also works on illustrations and paintings having cooperated with in animation film projects. Ares has published sixteen books and has illustrated more than fifty. He is the Cuban caricaturist with the higher number of international awards (75). Presently, he works in Havana as a free lance artist and is vice-president of the Artists of Cuban Artists and Writers Union (UNEAC). In 2002, in his country, he received the award “Distinção pela Cultura Nacional“, a tribute from Cuba´s Culture Minister.

  • Sophie-Anne Delhomme

    Cartoon is a language. And the World Press Cartoon´s miracle is that of showing with enormous strength, for the fifth successive edition, this language´s universality. The jury has had the impossible task of selecting amongst 400 drawings, the one that would convey at a glance the most piercing of messages, combining the best alliance between form and content. This has been an impossible task as, coming from every continent and under the most diverse ways, each one of those drawings have proposed the ideal combination. While detailing each and every hypothesis of calligraphic alphabets, visual sentences and figurative paragraphs, I have become deeply aware of the cartoon´s intrinsic value. In that regard, I have further deplored that cartoons continue to be seen so often as something negligible. There are so many of those who think that we cannot take them seriously – because they are often funny, seemingly easy to make (!) or much doing about nothing... to my eyes, it is something like a superior alchemy that allows to establish with each human being the understanding that language shortcomings make it difficult to achieve. In fact, through the witticism and diversity of their authors, drawings deliver subtle reading levels and use a wide range of tones that allow them to express complex problematic, local or general, political, economic and social. The cartoon is vector of information, commentator, critic, discloser of conscience(s). I say, therefore, in the light of these days spent in Sintra, in the company of such an illuminated jury, with whom I have had the opportunity to collaborate, that in these days of dangerous globalization, the cartoon is the language of the future, the future cement of our changing civilization.

    Sophie-Anne Delhomme is Art Director for the weekly French review Courrier International since 1999. Student of Roman Cieslewicz and graduate at the Ecole Supérieure d’Arts Graphiques in Paris, she also has a post graduate MA Image & IT at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Decoratifs in Paris. As an Art Director she has also collaborated with Le Monde, Télérama, and cult magazine L'Autre Journal.

  • Steve Brodner

    The work seen in the collection this year presents a very fine example of the issues that are most pressing and compelling in the world today… and done in the styles of art and ways of thinking that represent current trends in cartoon. We live in a very eclectic time. “Anything goes” in our culture(s). And this makes us very lucky because we are free to embrace diversity in expression of many levels. The World Press competition exemplifies this and moves forward in an extremely valuable, serious and unique way. The readers of this book and caricaturists and cartoonists everywhere should be aware of how impressive this is to the judges who participated here. It was a professional challenge which we hope we were able to rise to.

    Steve Brodner has been a satirical illustrator for 30 years. He was born in Brooklyn, NY in 1954. Upon graduating Cooper Union in 1976 he got a cartooning job on a small newspaper, The Hudson Dispatch, in Union City, New Jersey. In 1977 The New York Times Book Review began tapping him for illustration assignments. This launched his freelance career. In 1979-82 he published his own journal, The New York Illustrated News. In 1981 he became a regular contributor to Harper’s magazine with the monthly feature, “Ars Politica”. In the 1980’s more magazines asked him to contribute regularly. These included the National Lampoon, Sports Illustrated, Playboy and Spy. In 1988 Esquire brought him in as an unofficial house artist. It was there that he did portrait caricature, art journalism and a back-page political cartoon, “Adversaria”. His caricatures of pop and political culture have appeared in every major publication in the United States.
