Winners Caricature Competition

The Caricature Competition has found its winners!

To commemorate the uprising in the Auschwitz concentration camp on 16 May 1944, on Romani Resistance Day, the European Roma Institute for Arts and Culture (ERIAC) announced an international competition for Roma visual artists, graphic designers, cartoonists, and talented individuals to submit their political drawings, cartoons and caricatures. We welcomed proposals that engage directly with satirizing political subjects, criticise current or past political events, or express a certain socio-political phenomenon in a humorous way.

The international jury members have selected three winners:

• Ilona Makhotina
• Kristián Horváth
• Juan Andres Amaya Torres

Congratulations to all three winners! See the winning artworks and the artists’ statements exhibited in an online exhibition here:
