European Cartoon Award 2020
October 1 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm
We are proud to present the first edition of the European Cartoon Award, founded by Studio Europa Maastricht and the European Press Prize. Quality journalism is of vital importance to healthy democracies – and cartoonists play a crucial role in this system of checks and balances. Their creations are the hallmark of an open society: often just a single image, they hold up a mirror, make change negotiable and induce public debate.
Cartoonists could send in their work until 21 February. The Panel of Judges’ choices and the resulting shortlist will be announced on the website of European Press Prize on 11 June.
Award ceremony: 1 October Maastricht University Campus Brussels
The winner of the European Cartoon Award, worth €10.000, will be announced on October 1.
The award is for cartoons that analyse and reflect upon current affairs and events in Europe or concerning Europe, and thus inspire public debate.
