III. Baja Cartoon Competition
The town of Baja – famous for its Fish Soup Contest (www.bajaihalfozofesztival.hu) – organises its third cartoon competition, and this time it goes international!
Every fun loving amateur or professional cartoonist is welcome to enter the event.
Theme: PASSION for HUNTING and FISHING
This passion is there in every one of us. We may not fish and hunt in the original sense of these words, but all of us long for the ’big prize’. Today, when we are experiencing financial, economic, political and moral crises, it takes more and more creativity hunt down or fish out that prize: a good job, a beautiful woman, a rare stamp, a big fish or a trophy. We spend our lives in pursuit of the big opportunity, the chance that may well be the only one.
Yes! If you think it over carefully enough you’ll see that we do fish and hunt in all walks of our lives.
Our cartoon competition calls everybody to show with the help of humour just how passionate men and women can be when they are fishing or hunting!
