-Cartoon is line art reflected in black and white colors. Colored cartoons, which became widespread with computer technology in the 1990s, create some problems. 1-It increases printing and photocopying costs. 2-As a result of the cartoons being drowned in colors, the main subject that is intended to be reflected is pushed into the background. However, the essence of the cartoon is black and white. The cartoon should reflect the subject it will explain in a practical way, with only lines. For this reason, starting from this year, we will accept the cartoons sent to the contest ONLY WITH BLACK LINES ON A WHITE BACKGROUND (Grayscale is not accepted).
