3rd.International Cartoon Exhibition “ZEGEBOOM”,Croatia,2023

3rd.International Cartoon Exhibition “ZEGEBOOM”,Croatia,2023 Deadline: Nov. 5, 2023


This year’s theme of the competition was elaborated and described by the exhibition selector, art critic M.Sc. sc. Branka Hlevnjak:

What does an ideal city look like in the eyes of the cartoonists?
Is it a city where all the inns and cafes are free, but the traffic jams are not exist?
Is it a city where people return to the old customs with which they achieve peace and security which relaxes?
In an ideal city, is WIFI guaranteed in every place without disconnection i no passwords to unlock?
Is it an open city with playgrounds for all recreationists of all sports and creative workshops for all ages and genders for free?
An ideal city is perhaps permanently sunny with an ideal temperature, a breeze at will?
Is it a city of parks and flowers, a city of civil society that cooperates with each other?
An ideal city is a city of pleasant music, beautiful girls and young men, a city of optimists and a dancer. In an ideal city, everyone knows each other and greets them warmly.
In an ideal city, everyone does their job responsibly. And everyone is busy. Pensioners creative.
Is the ideal city just a fiction of some fun computer game?
Finally, the ideal city must surely be a city of fun and laughter. They rule in it cartoonists, because only they see reality clearly and can point the way without words qualitative change.
