The theme is “Soccer”. Even for a guy like me who has practically zero interest in soccer there’s quite a few really good cartoons among the 800, yes, 800 individual works in competition. I considered each one, (before nominating my own) and you should too.
I’m constantly receiving email invitations to enter cartoon contests all over the world, but they often seem to be from far flung regions where North American gag cartoons differ from the cerebral and esoteric illustrations of such places as Uruguay, Turkey, Estonia, and Whereeverstan. I actually only enter one or two contests every year – the NNA’s and the World Cartoon Contest. I like this contest because it’s got a slick presentation online and it’s open to all to vote on. The cartoons vary from the very funny to the really bizzare, but it’s amazing how many interpretations emerge from a game we North Americans love to ignore.
