He recently won the International cartoon contest ‘Against Forced Labor’ and in 2022 he was awarded at the European Cartoon Award- competition for press cartoons.  In 2019, he received the audience award for best press drawing from the Courrier International in Strasbourg ‘Plumes libres pour la démocratie’. In our country, he won the Silver Hat at the 57th Cartoon Festival in Knokke. Cartoon Home Network International proclaimed him the best European cartoonist.


This track record demonstrates Vasco Gargalo's commitment to making a difference with his cartoons: "My main purpose is to draw in favour of freedom of expression and peace".
