    This international competition is organized to contribute to the friendship of communities with the creative power of Culture and Art as well as strengthen friendship ties between cities. The theme of the competition, which will be held for the first time this year, is determined as "Children and International Peace" and the results will be announced on the 1st of September 2014, the World Peace Day.

    Today, thousands of children lose their lives and are forced to leave their home lands due to wars. They become disabled, suffer from psychological problems and they are abused. In wars, mostly children die first and for those who survive; they don’t smile anymore since their dreams, hopes and future are taken away from them.

    Every child has the right to grow up in peace regardless of their color, language, religion and ethnic origin. Ensuring this is the joint responsibility of humanity.

    Each competitor is allowed to participate in the competition with maximum 5 cartoons. The cartoons sent to the competition may have been published previously, but had not been awarded.
