2022 - Cartoon competition

Justice for all can only be reached if we have the freedom to express ourselves in fair and peaceful communities that leave no one behind. A focus on justice is necessary in solving all conflicts. Think about how to mitigate climate change, create gender equality, fight hunger, strengthen peace processes, battle fake news and tackle health issues. These are conflicts that can only be solved if we work together in an open, inventive and inclusive way.

But how do we do this?

In this competition we’re asking you to think about how to achieve justice in a conflict in your part of the world. Do you have an idea how to prevent or peacefully resolve this issue?

Use your creativity to shape this idea in the form of a cartoon and send it to us! Images have the power to carry a message in a clever, funny and informing way. Send us your idea as a drawing. Professional cartoonists choose the best, most inspiring ideas and turn them into editorial cartoons.

How to join?

  1. Make a sketch or cartoon that shows how to create peace and justice.
  2. Upload your idea to the competition website.
  3. Check the competition website in a day or two to see if your cartoon got picked up by our network of 600+ cartoonists and was turned into a cartoon!
  4. If your idea is picked, it will be part of an international cartoon exhibition on peace and justice at the Hague Justice Week 2022, taking place in the Netherlands in June 2022. They can also be seen in many other locations around the world.
