Nå går startskuddet for en internasjonal tegnekonkurranse som ender opp i en utstilling under vårens festival. Konkurransen, som retter søkelyset på retten til fritt å uttrykke sine meninger, er et samarbeid mellom Avistegnernes Hus, fribytegner Arifur Rahman og Norsk Litteraturfestival. Arifur ble selv fengslet i hjemlandet Bangladesh for en humoristisk tegneserie som ble oppfattet som blasfemisk. Temaet er brennbart og vi ser at i flere land blir muligheten for publisering av satiriske og politiske tegninger snevret inn. Når trykt publisering begrenses har digitale kanaler åpnet seg.
Tegnere fra hele verden inviteres nå til å bidra i konkurransen. Tegninger til konkurransen sendes på e-post til freedom@toonsmag.com innen 20. mars 2017. Bidraget skal være A3, JPG format, 300 DPI. Les mer om konkurransen her: http://www.toonsmag.com/2016/12/FreedomOfExpression.html. Utstillingen vises på Lillehammer under vårens festival.
