DIOGENES OF SINOPE, 2nd INTERNATIONAL CARTOON COMPETITION/TURKEY,2023
1- The competition is open to amateur and professional artists from all over the world.
2- The subject of the competition; It is designated as “Amazons.”
Amazons… Female warriors of ancient times. Free women who have attracted people's attention and sympathy for thousands of years. Historians such as Herodotus defined the homeland of the Amazons as North Anatolia. But the Amazons are a myth that everyone from the Baltic countries to North Africa is trying to own from one end.
The theme of "Amazons" was indispensable for the cartoon competition held in the city of Sinop, named after the Amazon Queen Sinope. The women of Sinop continue to set an example as the free, dominant characters who best reflect the spirit of the Amazons in Anatolia...
Our expectation from cartoonists; They should reflect the warrior spirit of the Amazons in their work against child marriage, abuse and rape, violence against women, femicide, exploitation, enslavement of women and male domination.
