The really good news is that the Competition is still running and that there are many cash prizes to be won: over $8000 in total prize money in fact. Cartoonists do not have to be a Member of Rotary to enter. The only qualification is that you are an Australian Citizen or Resident and are over the age of 18. You don't even have to be a professional cartoonist, all you need is an ability to draw a cartoon. How easy is that?!
The competition does not close until August 22nd, so there is still plenty of time to get your cartoons in! The categories (and you are not limited to entering only one) are:
- Best Comic Strip
- Best Caricature of a Well-Known Person
- Best Cartoon with a Political Theme
- Best Cartoon with a Sport Theme
- Best Cartoon with an Open Theme
- Best Cartoon with a Special Theme, which this year is Men and Their Sheds
So, what are you waiting for?! Full details, Rules and Conditions, and the most important Entry Form can all be found by clicking on this link here. The Award Ceremony is held in Coffs Harbour on September 20th, and the details about that are found here (below)...
