Festival Submissions Are Open!

Deadline: July 31st 2022 The Galway Cartoon Festival is now inviting cartoon entries for our international exhibition 2022. Our Theme: “Drawing The Line” This is where we draw a line under the events of the last few years – or so we hope. How do you, a cartoonist, make sense of it all? What needs to be said? What needs to stop right now, and what needs to start? What has made you laugh or cry – or laugh and cry? Get it out of your system. Draw the line! Entries Terms and Conditions Selected cartoons will be printed and framed by the Galway Cartoon Festival and offered for sale. Galway Cartoon Festival is a voluntary organisation promoting the art of cartoon and any sales will be put into meeting the costs of running this year’s festival or put into the budget for next year’s festival. Submitted cartoons may also be used in publicity materials for the festival, where they will be credited to the artist. Irish Language Galway Cartoon Festival welcomes cartoons in any language and none, but we are particularly keen to get cartoons and comics in the Irish language for our “Tarraing é i nGaeilge” exhibition – the only national annual show of cartoons in Irish. Works selected for Tarraing é i nGaeilge will be exhibited both in Galway City and on Inis Óirr in the Aran Islands. Other Events Alongside these open exhibitions, we have a fine bunch of other cartoon shows and events in the pipeline too. Stick around for further details – or just join the mailing list – and save the first week of October for a visit to Galway.
