The Caricature Contest will be held with collaboration of KalDer Bursa Branch Office and Anadolu Karikaturculer Dernegi
(Anatolian Caricaturists Society) for the 7th with in the 18th Quality and Success Symposium which is going to take place in Bursa between 17th – 18th of April 2020.

1. Contest topic: "CHANGE IS IN THE ESSENCE”
“It is not enough to know, it is necessary to think. Life is lived by looking forward, it can be understood by looking back," says, Sören Kierkegaard,
Danish philosopher who lived in the 19th century.

The future is founded by progressive ideas, revolutionary discoveries and inventions.
The owners of scientific knowledge apply it to life and reinforce it with technology.
On the other hand, despite all these advances, we see that hunger, thirst, ignorance and poverty cannot be prevented in the vast majority of the world.
The political arrangements put forward are not enough for humanity.

When we look at this picture, has ‘human’ been forgotten in the flow of life?
What should we remember for human understanding and happiness?
What should we look at to continue the journey of revealing the essence of human?
Is it possible to establish a social structure that can adapt with the new world of production and consumption?
What does it take to find our creative side without getting lost in the uniformity of life?
In line with this content, we organize our contest with the subject of  “Change is in the Essence”.
