De Tijd looks ahead in the 1920s and is looking for up-and-coming and established cartoon talent who can capture the new decade. A backpack full of experience is not a necessity, a quirky view of the world is. The best entries have a chance to win a cash prize and will be published in the weekend newspaper of 1 February.
In the coming decade, will we see the world through virtual reality glasses and become data citizens paying for groceries with bitcoins? Does climate change make the Flemish coast a Costa del Ostend? Or are the twenties not so roaring and is it going well with the change?
Make sure your entry meets the technical requirements . A cartoon must be a JPEG file with a size of 20×20 cm, a resolution of 220 px / inch, with color mode RGB. The file name is ‘cartoon – name – last name’ and this file may not exceed 25 MB.Surprise the jury by ushering in the new decade with a contrary and humorous view of the world. This competition is open to every novice or experienced cartoonist. The participants are free to determine the style of the cartoon themselves. But a personal voice and the power to surprise the jury with humor or a strong image are essential.
Our jury selects the best three cartoons from the entries. The winners receive 500, 250, or 125 euros. In addition, the jury compiles a shortlist of the best drawings. Together with the winning cartoons, these will be published in the weekend newspaper of 1 February and online.
The professional jury includes Stephanie De Smedt (editor-in-chief), Koen Meulenaere (Kaaiman), Jan Nelis (art director and Faudt News), Jacques Moeraert (ZAK) and Meike de Roest (community manager).
Cartoons can be submitted via this page. The deadline for submissions is on Monday January 27 before midnight.
