    Drawing for Freedom

    Editorial cartoons cannot exist without freedom. Cartoonists use freedom to mock those in power and to address the wrongs in society.

In April 2016, we partnered with Dutch NGO Switch in organizing a cartoon competition for students from 12 to 21 years old. The competition challenged the students to make a cartoon about one the four freedoms of President Roosevelt.

In October 2015, we organized a 24-hour cartoon challenge for the Veerstichting, an annual two-day symposium in Leiden, The Netherlands.
