7th International Cartoon Competition of the arts and cultural centre (KUK e.V.)


7th International Cartoon Competition  of the arts and cultural centre (KUK e.V.) in cooperation with the newspaper publisher Zeitungsverlag Aachen and the local government of Aachen district (StädteRegion Aachen)

„Money must be funny“ 

A golden key can open every door. That’s an old and wellknown saying. And it’s still and even more applicable now, in an era of online commerce, stock market crashs and bail-out packages for financially staggering states. But why does it apply? And where does all this lead to? Are beyond the obligatory flatscreen TV, the polished limousine and the whirlpool-including teakwood terrace things like love, attention, fame, power, the job of dreams or eventually even the planned child buyable? And if so: How far would a middlebrow go to come by the required cents? 

The correspondent non-profit organisation which sponsors the arts and cultural centre KuK in Monschau calls – in cooperation with the newspaper publisher Zeitungsverlag Aachen and the local government of Aachen district StädteRegion (SR) Aachen – on creatives from the field of comic art to sketch or draw their individual perception of money and it’s influence on society and find their answeres to questions like the mentioned. Wanted are funny cartoons, sharp caricatures, critical drawings with a „worthwhile“ reference… 

All professional and amateur cartoonists of full age are welcome to participate in this international contest.
