    The United Nations, in its desire to promote the highest standard of excellence in political cartoons, has established this international annual Political Cartoon Award.

    Entries must represent work done from the beginning of September 2016, to the 15th of October 2017, reflecting the importance of human dignity, mutual respect and friendship among nations, as well as economic consideration and environmental responsibilities towards each other. While cartoonists may send in what ever they please, the contest does not encourage maligning member nations or their leaders.

    Winning cartoons will be chosen for their high professional standards in art, political analysis of events, projection of events to come, humor, while emphasising the spirit and principles of the U.N.

    The entry must consist of reproductions only. The cartoon reproductions will be accepted only as published, with name of publication, language, and date included, accompanied by a newspaper reprint, and translated into English.

    Exhibits are limited to two cartoons per person. Reproductions must be presented measuring no larger than 8 1/2 x 11 inches.

    There is no entry fee.

    Entries may be made by any professional individual, and should consist of political cartoons printed in any publication published anywhere in the world, in any language.
