Nature and Man International Cartoon Contest

The Subject of the year 2007: "Global Climate Change and Our World"
In the last 10 - 15 years, a new problem was added to the basic ecological problems of mankind. Its name is "Global Warming and Global Climate Change”. The significance of this is emphasized by expressions such as “a new atmospheric danger”, “now the fever of the world is rising”. It is believed that this process which is caused by human influence and which is identified as “artificial climate change” is full of potential dangers for all the living-beings and abiotic environment and this change is not reversible. It is informed that the artificial climate change is completely different from the natural climate change, which is taking place since millions of geological eras and due to this, all the countries are concerned about this matter.
Caricaturists Association, TEMA Foundation and Cartoon Publishing had organized this contest aiming to direct people for focusing more on this matter by describing through caricatures that mankind will sooner or later face these dangers and by focusing on their probable results and also aiming to create an attitude and behavioral change in the society in order to slow down this process.

As long as you are writing about environmental cartoon contests, I thought you may be interested in this contest from the Union of Concerned Scientists. The contest is called "Science Idol: the Scientific Integrity Editorial Cartoon Contest." The idea is to draw attention to the serious problem of political interference in federal government science. Here is the link:
