One of the most important exhibitions in the world of cartoons is the annual World Press Cartoon exhibition in Portugal. It brings together many of the world’s best cartoonists.

Artist can submit their work that was published the previous year and a jury of world-renowned cartoonists will determine the best cartoons to be included in the exhibition.  The entries are divided into 3 categories: Cartoon, Caricature and Gag Cartoon. The top 3 in each category are awarded a cash prize and a trophy. A Grand Prize winner is also chosen from the 1st place winners.

I can tell you from a cartoonist perspective, it is not easy to narrow your work down to 3 pieces but I did it. I sent in my 3 pieces this year and 2 were chosen to be in the exhibition. I can’t tell you how honored I am to have my work included in this exhibition of world-renowned cartoonist. 

The exhibition can be viewed in the Portuguese town of Caldas da Rainha until August 28.
