On September 14, the European Cartoon Award celebrates its first 'Cartoons Day' at Beeld & Geluid in The Hague. This will be one day entirely dedicated to editorial cartoons, cartoonists and to whoever enjoys this form of journalism and wants to learn more about it.
From the early afternoon until the late evening, experts, activists, artists and cartoonists will sit together in the rooms of Beeld & Geluid in The Hague for workshops and panels, book presentations and talks. They will connect with their audience, draw their cartoons, and teach the subtle art of editorial cartoons.
At 18.30, after all the afternoon activities will finish, the Award Ceremony will begin. Every year, the European Cartoon Awards €10.000 for the best editorial cartoon of the past year, and assigns two runners-up and two honourable mention awards.
The winner of the ECA 2023 will be selected by a jury of five experts in the field of editorial cartoons and journalism among the 414 entries that the Award received. The judges of this year’s edition will present the five Winners on stage.
After the Award Ceremony, an exhibition showcasing the best 40 cartoons of the ECA 2023 will be inaugurated in the main hall and entrance of the museum.
