6th International Cartoon Contest Sinaloa / México 2017

6th International Cartoon Contest Sinaloa / México 2017

PARTICIPATION The Contest is open to all cartoonists from all over the world and beyond.

THEME 1. A country called Mexico. Despite the high degree of poverty (46.2% of its entire population) and the extreme lack of social equality, Mexico is considered as the fourth emergent economy in the world. In such a context, how it is possible that the world's richest man, with a fortune of 73,000 million US dollars, is Mexican? The country attains a special position in terms of corruption, organized crime, feminicide and enforced disappearance. Ironically, Mexico possesses the most expensive electoral system in the whole world but one that is incapable of organizing clean elections. Every year many Mexicans are forced to cross the US border illegally in search of work, risking life, facing racism and other denigrating abuses. Is Mexico the US backyard? The proverb is now truer than ever: "Poor Mexico, so far from god, too close to the US". This year we are inviting you to express your opinion of this, our highly controversial country, without ignoring its great historical content, its amazing natural beauty and, overall, the kindness and benevolence of its people.

Prize: $30,000 Mexican pesos.

THEME 2: Honouring Rius and Naranjo. In the last months two of the greatest Mexican cartoonists have left us. We would like to honour them, inviting you to draw a cartoon portrait depicting the importance of their work and its legacy. A maximum of 2 works can be submitted for each honoured artist.

Eduardo del Rio "Rius" prize: $15,000 Mexican pesos. Rogelio Naranjo prize: $15,000 Mexican pesos.
