WORLD PRESS CARTOON has in 2018 the thirteenth edition and continues to hold its main event in the city of Caldas da Rainha, with a Grand Prix that has the value of ten thousand euros. We have introduced in this edition an important innovation: the admissibility of works produced for online publications.
It is with deep joy and pride that we welcome to Caldas da Rainha the 2017 edition of the World Press Cartoon. In a town marked by the work and the great caricaturist tradition of Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro it is only natural and logical this linkage to a contest that celebrates the best that is being created all over the world in this arts field.
The cartoon «Immigrants», by Iranian author Alireza Pakdel, was honoured with the Grand Prix of the 12th edition of WORLD PRESS CARTOON, the great annual event of humour drawing in the international press.First prize in the Cartoon Editorial category, the cartoon was published in the Iranian newspaper «Etemad» in August 2016. Among the nine winners of this edition, the author raised the highest monetary prize in the amount of 10,000 euros. Still in this category, the jury awarded the 2nd prize to «Nice Attack», from the Greek Michael Kountouris (published in the newspaper Efimerida Ton Syntakton), and the 3rd prize for the «Welcome» by the French cartoonist Sunnerberg Constantin (published by Courrier International).
