Hosted by the Cartoon Museum, which has at last re-opened after its long Covid-19-slumber, the annual competition seeks to reward rising cartoon talent.
Judges include leading cartoonists such as Martin Rowson (The Guardian), Christian Adams (Evening Standard), Banx (FT), Peter Brookes (The Times), Nick Newman (Private Eye), and Matt from the Daily Telegraph.
If you can think of a more eminent list of cartoonists, I'd like to see it.
There are two categories: Under 18 and Under 30; the deadline is 23 November 2020, and entries should be mailed in (old school Royal Mail) to the Cartoon Museum.
Animation and Cartoons are Cousins
Here at Bucks New Uni we encourage all our students to enter. 3D animation and cartoons are (of course) not quite the same thing, but the ability to sketch up a gag and make it funny is a highly useful skill for an animator.
And, of course, for a storyboard artist.
Entry is free, and submissions should be sent to 63 Wells St, London W1T 3PT.
For more on the experience of studying at Bucks New University, come and visit us at one of our Open Days, take a virtual tour of one of our animation studios, check out what our students think of our course, and see why we're ranked in the top 12 creative universities in the UK.
