Opinion of the Jury

We are delighted by the increasing number of entries as well as the higher standards of execution. There were more genuine political cartoons this year. We had no difficulty reaching the final draw. The Jury consisted of Mr. Girish Karnad, Jnanapitha Awardee, Mr. S.G. Vasudev, well known artist and Mr. B.G. Gujjarappa, senior cartoonist.
We are now available Facebook as well.


All this requires enormous funds, perseverance and above all the goodwill and co-operation of the masses. It is no mean task to garner resources, in the form of people and money, to work towards this goal. We request Philanthropists, Corporates, Bankers, Industrialists, Businessman and Media Magnates to open their hearts and purses to further this cause. Spread the word around, the noble cause would surely do with large dose of media publicity. Be a part of movement. Any donation, sponsorship or membership in whatever measure is outmost welcome. We assure you that it is no mere charity; it is an involvement and investment that will stand in good stead for our children, their future and their freedom of expression. It is small tribute to the people who with their pen pepper the paper daily in an indomitable spirit of humour. A tribute to the people who put thought into our minds even as they put a smile onto our faces.
