Begun in 1999, PortoCartoon quickly became a focal point for humorous design on a wolrd scale. Hundreds of cartoonists have participated in it every year, with cartoons that have exalted the universal language of the cartoon.
Dealing with different themes, the cartoons demonstrate very well the reflexive strength of humour on the problems that most preocupy the world. War, pollution, hunger, consumerism, scarcity of water, abuse of power are some of the topics that the cartoonists pencils analyse with mordacity and artfulness.
The affirmation of the cartoon as one of the most universal languages is clear.
It is a very good expression of the world.
