The sentiment of tolerance is becoming ever more significant in the modern world whereby violence and discrimination threaten universal and ethical norms. Cartoons are among the fundamental building blocks of a society based on tolerance and prudence, open to different thoughts and beliefs. Held with this thought in mind, the Aydın Doğan International Cartoon Competition is renowned across the world as the “Oscar of Cartoons”.
The Aydın Doğan International Cartoon Competition is organized every year in Turkey by the Aydın Doğan Foundation. The competition is open to professional and amateur cartoonists from all over the world. The Jury, composed of international members, will meet in June 2018.
The 35th Aydın Doğan International Cartoon Competition will be celebrated with an award ceremony in November 2018 in Istanbul.
