“The exhibition traditionally opens in the museum,” said Press Museum director Saadet Altay.
This year, 842 cartoonists from 77 countries took part in the contest with a total of 2,544 cartoons. The international committee, which gathered in Bodrum, also evaluated 234 cartoons by 199 artists from 43 countries that had already been chosen for consideration by the pre-selection committee.
