Homer Daveport International Cartoon Contest

All Day, Jul 26, 2019

Once again, the Homer Davenport International Cartoon Contest returns to Silverton, Oregon. After all, a festival that honors a famous Political Cartoonist seems almost naked without some kind of competition focused on that endeavor. As in past years, the competition is for “political” or “editorial” cartoons on any topic as long as they are not libelous, slanderous, racist, sexist or salacious. Starting in 2017, we substantially increased the prize money award amounts. The new prizes will now be $750, $500, $300 and $200 respectively, with an entry fee of $25.

The work will be judged in three categories: Artistic skill, clearly implied message, and the Cartoon’s over all appeal. All prizes will be determined by a blue ribbon panel of judges, with five non-cash “Peoples Choice” awards determined by popular vote. Winners will be announced Sunday afternoon at the festival, and announced online on the Web at the “Homer Page.” Entries will be prominently displayed in Silverton during the Homer Davenport Community Festival, (August 2 through 4, 2019) in the Silverton Community Center. Deadline for submission is Friday, July 26, 2019.

And this year, we have added a "PayPal" option! Rules, Official entry forms, PayPal link and more details can be found on the Homer Page.

Cost: $25 Entry Fee. Now taking fees by PayPal!
