Cartoon Competition for French-Language Newspapers

The Francophone Press Union is calling for entries for its African Press Cartoons Contest organized in the light of the Book and Press Fair to be hold in Geneva (Switzerland) from 27 April to 1 May.

Submitted cartoons must have been published in a French-language publication based in the African continent. The winner will be invited to Geneva to receive its prize, which the organization has not specified.

Those willing to participate must send two copies of the publication the cartoons were printed in. Copies must be in good state in order to enlarge the cartoons for a show to be held within the fair. Entry forms are available at

Although there is no official deadline, organizers urge participants to send their entries as soon as possible.
