IX Biennial of Humor Luis d'Oliveira Guimar_es, Penela / Portugal 2024



-Cartoon – Human resistance and resilience

-As a subgroup, within the scope of the portrait-charge / Caricature – Consul Aristides Sousa Mendes (Portugal)


Human Resistance and Resilience as the survival of Humanity against oppression, abuse, bad education, stupidity, demagoguery, fake news, radicalism and fundamentalism, religious/sexual/social phobias, tribalism/clubism, environmental destruction

The importance of humor as a weapon of resilience (denouncement, indignation, irreverence) in pacifying conflicts with the smile of intelligence.

In this plethora of resilience that artists can comment on, be it human rights (racism, xenophobia, bullying…), politics, the environment, everyday society, we cannot also forget the resilience of those who, instead of fleeing their homeland, of emigrating to other more favorable areas, such as the city, they remain in the villages, in the mountains with resilience, abandonment, loneliness



-The Biennale where humor does not need colors, just a smile, philosophical intelligence and a simple and direct color – white and black and their (monochromatic) hues. More important than the awards is having an active voice, expressing your humor, your irreverent ideas in communion with the community

-Open to the participation of all humorous graphic artists, professionals or amateurs

-Each artist can send, via email in digital format (300 dpi A4 format) up to 4 monochromatic works (a single color with all its shades – drawings in 2, 3 or 4 colors are not accepted – open to all techniques and styles such as caricature, cartoon, humor drawing, strip, comics  (story on a single board)… and these must be accompanied by information on name, date of birth, address and email and telephone number (data mandatory to be able to later receive the catalog if selected)
