[Niels Bugge’s Cartoon Award JUNIOR]

maY 26. 2018

In 2016, the 8th grades in Viborg were able to win the junior-award for the very first time. The pupils were given the same topic, Utopia, with the exception that they were allowed to use speech bubbles and text in their cartoons.

 With the support of the municipality of Viborg this year, several schools have been aware of the great educational potential that lies therein, which makes it easy for teachers to include the drawing contest in a learning-oriented education. A key element is to interpret and analysing satirical cartoons, but the debate is also important in order to give pupils an understanding of other cultures or groups in society. The preparation of the cartoons can be individual or in groups where message and idea weighs higher than the artistic expression.

 The winners with their family and class teachers are invited to the award ceremony where the first, second and third prize are presented to the winners. The prizes are acquired for the entire class of the winner.
