The 1th edition of the Rotterdam Cartoon Festival

The 1th edition of the Rotterdam Cartoon Festival
On september 7th 2009, the Rotterdam Cartoon Festival was officially founded by three enthousiastic
employees of the Rotterdam University of Professional Education.
The Rotterdam Cartoonfestival Foundation aims to select issues relevant to the Rotterdam society as
theme for the cartoon contest and the exhibition. This in order to focus and enlarge public and political
attention to these issues. De Foundation is not making any profit. This first Rotterdam Cartoon
Festival will be a part of the annual World Harbour Days that are organised in Rotterdam and always
attract lots of visitors. The opening of the exhibition will be friday september 3 2010.
The theme of this first edition of the Festival is: “Working in the port of the future” . The modern
port of Rotterdam is developing rapidly and innovative techniques are app lied all over. This offers
interesting new carreer oportunities for young people. However most people still associate working
in a port with heavy, unskilled labour. Too many (young) people in Rotterdam, are unaware of the fact
that the port urgently needs brains and creative ideas and offers new interesting qualified jobs and
career possibilities.
The festival organisers invite cartoonist from all over the world to draw cartoons that visualise this
future port as cartoonists are able to do so in an unexpected way. Cartoons make people smile, think
or both… What does a mainport look like in 2100? What job adventures are possible in such a port?
The Rotterdam Cartoon Festival is supported by the Dutch Association of Cartoonists ‘De Tulp’ and
by the international federation of cartoonist organisations FECO. FECO Contest regulations will be
applied by the Rotterdam Cartoonfestival.
Hope to see you in Rotterdam
