    The theme for the 1st International Graphic Humor Salon of Pernambuco is ’The Woman’. Our goal is to promote a reflection on gender equality and inequality, as well as the differences between sexes, by way of a contest of cartoons and caricatures. You’re invited to pour some ink over this discussion.

    Through this exhibition, and through an all-female jury, we also wants to pay homage and give visibility to artists who actively contribute to the development of graphic humor in Brazil and abroad.

    There are two categories:
    • cartoon
    • caricature

    Each contestant can send one or up to two original works in each category. Works must be in A3 format (297 mm x 420 mm), horizontal or vertical, in JPEG format, and with a resolution of 300 DPI. Creativity, originality and pertinence to the theme will be the criteria for the selection and prize of all works.

    There is no entry fee.


    All graphic artists, be them amateurs or professionals, Brazilian or foreign, are allowed to participate.


    For both categories, artists will be rewarded with the following prizes:

    • 1st Place: R$ 6.000,00 (approx. 3,000 USD) plus trophy;
    • 2nd Place: R$ 3.000,00 (approx. 1,500 USD) plus trophy;
    • 3rd Place: R$ 1.000,00 (approx. 500 USD) plus trophy;

    All the prizewinners, as well as the rest of the selected works, with a total number of 120 professionals and 20 students, will be part of an exhibition between 21 October and 18 November 2012.
