The Cartoonists Studio to launch new politically themed competition
On the heels of their second annual “So You Want to Be a Cartoonist” contest earlier this spring, The Cartoonists Studio will launch two politically themed contests in June and August with winners of both contests announced the day before this year’s presidential election.
More details will be posted at a later date, but here’s what I know:
The first contest starting in June is a single panel contest. It will run 10 weeks and operate much like previous contests with deadlines for contestants to upload their cartoons twice a week. Judging will come from the public in conjunction of the judges’ votes. Uploading twice a week allows contestants to keep their work relevant to the political news of the week if they wish. The second contest starts on August 27 and is for the political comic strippers. Same operating procedures as the first contest.
Judges will be looking for writing, cleverness, relevancy to issues, use of humor, originality, craft, and ability to convey ideas with as few words as possible.
I’ll be posting more details as they become available.
