The Portugese Rodrigo De Matos won the ‘Grand prix’ for his cartoon in Expresso, and the Dutch colleagues Tjeerd and Hajo did win the secund and third prize.
Quirit was the winner of the PCB with his cartoon about burn-out in the ‘Gazet of Antwerpen’, Karl was secund with his work about Obama and Zak won the third prize.
Typical for the election of the Press Cartoon Belgium and Europe is that the jury is composed of 5 professionals in one domaine (f.e. politics, sports, etc.). This year it were Lawyers who did choose the prize winners.
The winning and nominated cartoons will be exhibited during the Cartoonfestival of Knokke next summer.
