Budding artists are being urged to keep the tradition of cartoons alive by entering a competition.

The Evening Standard’s Christian Adams will be among the judging panel for the Young Cartoonist of the Year contest, the final of which is due to take place next month.

Entrants are being asked to submit their offerings — a single, freehand drawing or painting no bigger than A4 — by September 24. The two categories are for under-30s and under-18s.

Adams said: “Cartoons are as vital and relevant as ever in these fraught times, whether as satire, or just a giggle. A picture still says a thousand words.

“Cartooning cannot be left to die. With budgets — magazines, print, online — being cut and cut, it is more important than ever to encourage new talent not to be disheartened. I am looking for wit, nice distinctive drawing styles, and above all originality.”

The event is organised by the British Cartoonists’ Association. Entrants must submit their cartoons by September 24 to The Young Cartoonist of the Year Competition, The Cartoon Museum, 35 Little Russell Street, WC1A 2HH.
