1st prize to Oleg Gutsol,
for having created, with a fresh style, a clever graphic and chromatic synthesis, a fun and instantly understandable image. The essential to fully enjoy the basic idea, which is full of ideas in addition to the central one of the "tools / results" balance. Everyone in the cartoon shares the desire to improve. With much humanity we laugh at the situation, not at the protagonists.
2nd prize to Hashemi Mahshid,
for the communicative power, the result of a coordinated and highly effective graphic and conceptual synthesis. Having chosen to "cool" the visual elements by reducing them to iconic symbols allowed the author not to make a caricature of the condition of learning on the "mountain" of mistakes made. Indeed, by clarifying that mistakes can be built on a positive rise. He gives us a sympathetic and optimistic smile!
3rd prize to Kustovsky Olesksiy,
for having, with originality, transformed the error itself into "teaching". The style is mature, well composed, capable of lightness. An excellent didactic irony squared, proposes to give "usefulness" to one's mistakes by transforming them into calm suggestions for others. Specifically to those who, by age, have accumulated less; exactly a school of life. The resulting smile is serene despite everything.
