    Taiwan international cartoon contest

    Judgement of
    the 4th Courage World Cartoon Contest  

          

 

   

In this year a new int'l cartoon contest was held in Taiwan, it's based on the government (payments & judge...), denominated by this country's name.  It's an un-usual case.

Unfortunately, it's not sucessful, and even not too honorable.

It's not honorable, because they declared "the first time int'l cartoon contest  in our nation"  in a few mediocre newspapers.     it's  a lie .

It's not successful, one among reasons is the contest asks unpublished works , and asks all artists to provide with their IDs, but a lot of old   ideas still are selected and win prizes. ( I was a jury there for the final round, voted few, but hard to be responsible for 1st round)

If you look for a world-scaled cartoon contest in Taiwan which is really

  Independent
  for more Justice
  Wits oriented (focus on sharp-witty humor & satire)
  with courage

The best choice now is Courage World Cartoon Contest, which 's
       §     reported by the best-awarding newspaper in Asia & Pacific 
       §     ranking very top or No.1 by lots of world best search engines.

we will hand in hand together with great artists to
      promote cartoon arts, int'l friendship, and
      good values.

   (2)  LIE &  THIEF    

          
 

      To prove my previous article, I randomly chose one among quite many "co-incidences", and to display them (as below)

          very reluctantly...........

        because in most cases, I only made comments on works printed in world top media, etc.

         because the author is NOT a thief.

         Most important, because I firmly believe, the author is a kind-hearted gentleperson, so that he worked on this theme

    The mistake is the contest  should not selecte  old ideas

    The mistake is the contest should not choose the theme "peace", but did something "not peaceful"

    The mistake is few media in Taiwan like Ming-sen Daily (a sub-system of United News, now is bankrupted ) should not print un-true news ............. although the United News just reported a paper about Taiwan's newspaper-media is not ahead in Asia.

   The mistake is ..................

   (3)    Still Top of the world

          

 

   We are still No.1 in a number of world best search engines ('03)

 

   We have been on the top for a few years continously.

   So many greatest artists contribute their talents, this contest exhibit world-class talents  in a non-profit, un-biased, worldwide site.
   This contest was attcked, I was attacked,
   but I don't think those hackers or masked terrorist would like to spend a penny of their own in holding any activity.

Most biggest winners in the 4th contest are sort of editorial cartoons, they simply sketch the truth/facts,
  some very sharp cartoons are from (relatively) strictly political countries , some of their works are related to some events in their places or on this planet ,
They all show their sharp wits and courage. 

Some caricatures are about the same as, or even better than fine art painting, many people taste and love them.

Very few cartoonist complained about the judgement results,
I would say,
Not only one person got  No.1 in the Contest,
if your works are great, you are great, then,
You are No.1 inside some people's mind.
