They say a picture is a worth a thousand words. CIPE’s Global Editorial Cartoon Competition recognizes the visual elements of free speech: cartoons can speak across languages and cultures, expressing ideas in a way that words often can’t.

CIPE’s Editorial Cartoon Competition Winners were selected by more than 8,000 online votes.

This year, CIPE received 642 entries from 83 countries. The best entries in each of the three categories – Democratic Governance, Entrepreneurship, and Youth Empowerment – were put up for an online vote to select the final winner in each category.
