WORLD PRESS CARTOON will organize in 2021
(Extended entry submission deadline)

WORLD PRESS CARTOON will organize in 2021 the 16th edition and continues to hold its main event in in Portugal, at Caldas da Rainha municipality. To distinguish, exhibit, promote and award the best drawings published in the world press is still our mission.

Caricatures, editorial and gag cartoons that will make a retrospective view of the world’s current affairs in 2020, views from different cultures, drawings where the cartoonists picture and criticize the ways of the world with humour and a sharp eye.

Admitting works produced for professional publications in print or online, the high quality standards are the hallmark of this organization, with an attractive structure of monetary prizes and a Grand Prize of 10,000 euros.

Almost a thousand works arrived at our headquarters, coming from all parts of the world. As always, the task of the Jury will be very difficult: a large number of works from different cultures and an increasing quality. Usually, the jury meets at the end of February, in Caldas da Rainha, Portugal. The restrictions imposed under the control of the pandemic forced the organization to postpone the Jury meeting. It will take place as soon as these restrictions are lifted.

Keep in touch for news here and in social networks.

To all who are participating, thank you very much!


The jury.

Since its inception, the World Press Cartoon has always sought to reward the most relevant cartoons each year, subjecting the best works and authors to the scrutiny of a jury of their peers.

We have always had the honor of having several world reference names in the cartoon area as a jury, and this year was no exception.
