A lot of cartoon museums also organize cartoon contests, that’s why the European Cartoon Center will present the results of a ‘cartoon contest survey’ during the conference.
What is the survey about?
Every year hundreds of cartoon contests are organized, we wondered how cartoonists choose on which contests they participate: is the theme important, the prize money, the reputation of the organization, … ? Well we did ask the cartoonist by an online questionnaire in March 2012.
At this moment the second part of the survey started: a survey among cartoon organizers: how many entrees they have, what kind of themes, do they publish a catalogue, what about the rights of the cartoonist, ….?
You can still participate on this survey till the 15th of May. Please feel free to let other organizations know about this survey, the more people respond, the more accurate the results will be.
The final report will be a global report where we will compare what cartoonists say they find important, what cartoon organizers offer and the general participation degree on contests. Of course we will not publish any specific information about the data we received.
Hope we can show you very interesting results!
