FARAONE – INTERNATIONAL CARTOON CONTEST “SAFETY AT WORK”/Italy,2023
ART. 1 – SUBJECT
"Faraone industrie Spa" of Tortoreto (TE) is organising the 1st Edition of the International
Cartoon Contest "Safety at work", International Review of humorous graphic art.
The aim of the initiative is to contribute to the dissemination of the culture of safety at work through the art of humour and illustration.
A picture is worth a thousand words and we believe that art in all its forms invites reflection and moves the minds of workers and all people.
ART. 2 - CONTEST THEME
"Safety at Work " - the topic must be understood in a general sense and in every aspect, from every point of view and possible interpretation: Safety at Work means working with peace of mind and serenity with suitable equipment in safe places, whether outdoors on construction sites or in offices; it also means ensuring worker safety, the workers of today and tomorrow. Every year
This is why we wanted to extend the participation of this initiative to an international level, relying on the sensitivity and creativity of each cartoonist.
The work should invite people to reflect on the importance of work safety. We often think that 'it won't happen to us because nothing has ever happened before', but we are not superheroes and an unforeseen event may result in not being able to return to our loved ones after work.
ART. 3 - HOW TO PARTICIPATE
workers around the world lose their lives due to occupational accidents or diseases.
