Click>> PDF Rules

The world laughs after this Introduction:

Humorous language is a special kind of speech in the form of an image or text that re-reads the functional processes of a society in another form.  Humor more than trying to make people laugh; it try to surprise, regret, thinking and contemplation. The visual arts have also tried not to be empty of the element of humor by trapping the lines and shapes in the framing of an image. This image profile, sometimes in the form of cartoons, sometimes caricature, sometimes photos and sometimes in the form of posters, has been able to perpetuate pure and memorable framing of people over time.  Just as these picture frames of society make the audience stand in front of an image, laugh, cry, and fly with it to the depths of their minds. The existence of a range of visual humor in different formats enable the artists from all around the world to depict the ignorance of a society in different forms with their creative view of people's daily lives; Ignorance that answers unanswered questions of   people's minds.
The Artoonist International Seasonal Festival is a popular festival formed by the policies of a number of prominent cartoonists, photographers and graphic artists from around the world. This festival has tried to review and criticize the various events and happenings of the world in three form of cartoons, news and press   humorous posters and posters from the world artist’s point of view.  At the end of all four seasons, the festival tries to sell the selected works of the artists of the past year in an annual world exhibition in different countries, in coordination and agreement with the owners of the works.  Unlike many traditional international festivals, this event makes it the original  selected works to be sold with the artist's signature and the cycle of art economics, which has been neglected so far in the form of cartoons, photos and posters, to be formed, and artists in these fields of art as well. Painters should make a profit from selling their works. It is worth mentioning that in addition to the works of selected artists, the works of the judges of each period will be offered for sale at the annual World Artist Exhibition.
