The Art of Resistance: Official Selection

The Art of Resistance: Official Selection

With a total 1781 submissions from 76 countries we think our first international cartoon competition was a huge success! Out of all these submissions we made a shortlist of 200 cartoons; on March 5, this shortlist was presented to a professional jury, tasked with the difficult job to select the cartoons that will be featured in the upcoming exhibition ‘The Art of Resistance’ and to determine the winners.

The jury consisted of Hajo, a well-known Dutch cartoonist, Saskia van Loenen, chairperson of Pers & Prent (a foundation promoting political cartoons and organizer of the yearly Dutch cartoon award Inktspotprijs) and Michiel van Hattem, president of vfonds, a Dutch NGO with a focus on peace.

Together, they selected 57 cartoons, including 9 honorable mentions and 3 winners. The honorable mentions and winners will be announced on May 5th at the Freedom Festival in Flushing, the Netherlands. For now, we present the official selection, in no particular order:
