City & Country International Cartoon Contest, Aachen 2009 - Germany

City & Country International Cartoon Contest, Aachen 2009 - Germany
Is that really true? What is the competition between the city and the country?
Are cities fundamentally modern metropolises with cosmopolitan trendy inhabitants?
Do unsophisticated townsfolk in the country really bustle around in good air and lifestyles out of the 1950s?
We are looking for cartoons on the theme of city and country, city dwellers and country folk. Personal (in-) sights are welcome.This theme is of special interest this year to the city and county of Aachen, since the two are merging soon into the Stadteregion Aachen.
