Jurymeeting Euro-kartoenale Kruishoutem 2021
It was a strange experience to have a digital jury meeting to choose the winners of the 23th Euro-kartoenale Kruishoutem ‘Chances and Opportunities’. We find it always important to gather the international jury members in the European Cartoon Center during a live meeting. The worldwide pandemic decided otherwise this year.
After 3 rounds of selections on the jury platform, 38 cartoons stayed in competition for the final discussion between the jury members by video conference. It was difficult to choose because of the very high number and quality of the cartoons on this edition. But we can admit that the jury did a great job and showed a very high engagement.
The jury did decide that 9 cartoonists are nominated for the 6 prizes and 3 honourable mentions (in alphabetical order):
- Alessandro Gatto - Italy
- Jerzy Gluszek – Poland
- Mojtaba Heidarpanah - Iran
- Marilena Nardi – Italy
- Muammer Olcay – Turkey
- Alexander Sergeev - Russia
- Constantin Sunnerberg – Belgium
- Davoud Housmand Taghiabad - Iran
- Zbigniew Wozniak - Poland
Who did win which prize and with which cartoon will be announced on the opening ceremony on Saturday the 3th of April in Kruishoutem (due to Corona it will probably will be a live streaming without public).
On the 1st of February you can check in the list of participants if your cartoons are selected for the catalogue or exhibition.
From the 4th of April all participants will be able to download their certifcate of participation or selection.
Thanks to all participants for sharing their great talent with the world and congrats to all!
