Leaving the Haifa International Cartoon Contest

For more than 15 years we took part at the Haifa International Cartoon Contest as participants or as judges.

With a great sorrow we note that during the last years, this event gradually deteriorated from professional and organizational point of view.

It's impossible to list here all faults caused by bad selection and careless judging, but results are talking by themselves.

A lot of our friends, well known cartoonists, agree with our feeling, position, and with this statement.

Members of Israeli cartoonist association will not participate in this event.

We tried to discuss those issues with the organizers, but they were not willing to do so.

Therefore we've decided not to take part at the Haifa International Cartoon Contest this year.
