General Rules and Regulations

An invisible and slow revolution is happening in the world. The epicentre of this revolution lies in communication and technologies. Therefore, after twelve themes of great international impact, the theme of COMMUNICATION AND TECHNOLOGIESis the chosen one for the 13th PortoCartoon.
Communication and Technologies penetrate so much in the everyday world that become almost equivalent to the air we breathe. Or the electricity we can not do without. They are goods we need most, and their roots are in the social essence. Despite that, they express and cause social differences, conflicts, discrimination, censorship, myths, loneliness, inequality, war, etc..
With the further development in this 21st century, will we have a world more fairly and balanced? Or will we have a more demonic, less communicative and more asymmetrical world?
In addition to participating with cartoons on the main theme, the cartoonists can also send works for the FREE CATEGORY, as per the previous editions.
