CIPE Képregény-verseny 2011

cipe pályázatEgy kép sokszor többet tud elmondani, mint egy tucat oldalnyi szöveg, vagy több órás beszéd. A Nemzetközi Magánvállalkozások Központja arra invitál (kortól, foglalkozástól függetlenül mindenkit a világból, beleértve az amatőr képregény-rajzolókat is), hogy a következő kategóriákban nyújtsanak be műveket: demokrácia, korrupció, nemek közötti egyenlőség. Egy kategórián belül legfeljebb két mű adható be; ezeknek eredetiknek és még kiadatlannak kell lenniük. Az egyes kategóriák nyertesei pénzjutalomban részesülnek.

Határidő: 2011. április 17.

One image can…

communicate more than dozens of pages of text or hours of speeches. One image can change the course of history. Editorial cartoons draw attention to important political, economic, and social issues like nothing else. Using symbols or visual metaphors, their reach transcends country borders and language barriers.

The Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) invites you to share creative ways of capturing key issues affecting the development of your country.
