Cartoonists Association of Nigeria is a collective of professional cartoonists in Nigeria.
This was formed in the late 1990s but was officially registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in October 2019.
Nigerian cartoon art has a great history and boasts an impressive pool of talent that deserves a higher media presence. Our aim is to make sure it gets this by promoting our members’ work, via our Cartoonists pages, and by promoting cartooning news using our blog and other social networking sites.
With rapidly evolving new-media formats, artists’ rights are under threat, so CARTAN has reached inward, facilitating programmes and campaigns to keep media freedom alive.
