29. Uluslararasi Nasreddin Hoca Karikatür Yarismasi / 29th International Nasreddin Hodja Cartoon Contest

Nasreddin Hodja, the master of Turkish humourists, lived in Aksehir between 1208-1285. He is partly medresse-educated (Muslim theological school), partly self-trained. Historical information on his life and personality is highly limited, but from what has travelled by word-of-mouth from generation to generation, we understand him to have been a significant folk philosopher, with a view on life as intensely amusing as it is stimulating and giving food for thought. He is so much at one with the people that perhaps it is truer to say he lived his works rather than created them. With a strong social personality, Nasreddin Hodja constitutes the nucleus of Turkish folk humour, with stories emanating from his personality being woven by the people around his character century after century, so that the humour of Hodja has reached our day as vigorous and as close to people’s heart as ever.
The Association of Cartoonists maintains that in the struggle for a more tolerant and peaceful world, humour, in other words “the laughing thought” and its universal language, caricature is the most effective weapon against the thought that does not laugh. Bearing this aim in mind, the Association of Cartoonists is organizing each year the International Nasreddin Hodja Cartoon Contest to the living memory of Nasreddin Hodja, Turkish master of popular humour.
