1. The theme for the 15th International Editorial Cartoon Competition is:

The price of freedom

Last year was difficult for cartoonists worldwide.

In Venezuela, Rayma Subrani was fired from the newspaper "El Universal" for linking former President Chavez to the problems of the health system.

Turkish cartoonist Mehmet Düzenli was jailed for "insulting" Adnan Oktar, a controversial Muslim preacher.

France experienced the worst terrorist attack in it's soil when five "Charlie Hebdo" cartooonists were murdered in the office of the satirical magazine.

Freedom of the press has a value but it also has a price.

2. Prizes: three prizes will be given: a first prize of $1500 plus a Certificate from Canadian UNESCO, a second prize of $750 and a third of $500. All sums are in Canadian dollars. Ten additional cartoons will receive an Award of Excellence, Regrettably no financial remuneration accompanies the Awards of Excellence.
