A few years ago there were some issue in relation to Copyright ownership of the entries, and I am happy to report all of these have now been sorted. Entrants now continue to retain copyright ownership, and agree to allow the Bunker Cartoon Gallery and the Rotary Club of Coffs Harbour City to use their work for promotional purposes in furthering the aims of the Gallery. Given that the Gallery is now run by a Board (rather than the City Council), the Gallery is seeking to be as independent and financially autonomous as possible, with events like this being useful in helping achieve these goals...
