Sinoplu Diogen 2nd International Cartoon Competition “Turkey 2023
1- The competition is open to all world artists amateur and professional.
2- The subject of the competition;“Amazons”.
Amazons… Female fighters of ancient times. Free women who have attracted people’s attention for thousands of years and gathered their sympathy. Like Herodotus, historians described the homeland of the Amazons as North Anatolia. However, the Amazons are the MIT that everyone is trying to claim from one end from Baltic countries to North Africa…
For a cartoon competition in Sinop, which was named after the Queen of Amazon Sinope, the issue of “Amazons” would be a must for a cartoon competition. Sinop women still continue to set an example as free, dominant characters who best reflect the spirit of the Amazons in Anatolia…
Our expectation from the contestants; Child marriages, harassment and rape, violence against women, women’s murders, women’s exploitation, enslavement, male domination against the Amazons’ warrior spirit in their works…
