Theme: The challenges of the cartoons and freedom of speech in the digital era
SUBJECT: Inkchallenge - OPEN CALL for exhibition “The cartoon’s survival at the digital era”
Cartónclub, the club of the Latin cartoon, invites you to participate in the Inkchallenge
“The cartoon’s survival at the digital era”
In a place where you can say everything and criticize everything it is difficult to dis- tinguish the real from the virtual, how should we direct ourselves? Does it benefit us or harm us? Are we more or less free to express our opinions? Can the excess of information be compared with the lack of it? And on the other hand, how to sur- vive in an era where attention is volatile and images are appreciated, but devalued by the market? How to face these challenges?
RULES OF PARTICIPATION:
The call is open to all the cartoonists and illustrators of the world.
We will accept no more than 3 cartoons per participant. If you send a comic strip, it must have a maximum of 4 frames.
By submitting the work, you authorize the committee of the event for the publica-tion of your work in print and electronic media.
THEME: The challenges and panoramas of the cartoons and freedom of speech in the digital era, from a personal perspective or as a professional of visual communication. It can be in a positive or negative sense: how our way of com-municating have changed by the social networks, the openness, the exchange, the access to information and, on the other side, how the "opinioncracy", the "politically correct", censorship, false news and media harassment, have undermined freedom of expression.
