8th.International Cartoon Contest "Caminos de la Libertad" /Mexico,2023
The Caricature is an act of provocation, of criticism; capable of defending freedom through humor. Caminos de la Libertad invites reflection and discussion on the different aspects of freedom, generating thought around it and making those who have not yet realized its value in their lives aware of it.
Freedom is the fundamental right of human beings, but efforts to limit it have become systematic in the contemporary world.
There is no more direct and effective form of communication than caricature. Since its inception, it has been a tool for criticizing and analyzing the reality of our world. In the search to promote debate around freedom, Grupo Salinas announces the caricature contest.
