Here's a call out to all to vote for a couple of my cartoons competing in the Austrian Cartoon Contest
. A few things you need to do. The first and most painful thing to do is to take 11 seconds to register for the priviledge of voting. So when you click on this link
go to the place that takes you to the "Voting Gallery" and register in the area on the far right. After you've done that track down where you'll find my two cartoons:
...by clicking on the search scroll down box where it says Land/country, select Canada, and you'll find my stuff along with a few others from Canada.
The theme is "Soccer". Even for a guy like me who has practically zero interest in soccer there's quite a few really good cartoons among the 800, yes, 800 individual works in competition. I considered each one, (before nominating my own) and you should too.
I'm constantly receiving email invitations to enter cartoon contests all over the world, but they often seem to be from far flung regions where North American gag cartoons differ from the cerebral and esoteric illustrations of such places as Uruguay, Turkey, Estonia, and Whereeverstan. I actually only enter one or two contests every year - the NNA's and the World Cartoon Contest. I like this contest because it's got a slick presentation online and it's open to all to vote on. The cartoons vary from the very funny to the really bizzare, but it's amazing how many interpretations emerge from a game we North Americans love to ignore.
