Cartoons against Tax dodging

Christian_Aid_Tax_Cartoon_Competition logoChristian Aid has launched a cartoon competition. We are looking for a cartoon that will, in an innovative, humorous and hard-hitting way highlight the injustice of tax dodging.

The prize is an original drawing by renowned Irish Times cartoonist Martyn Turner.

Deadline for entries is Friday October 26th, 2012.

Christian Aid works with people in poor communities in around 45 countries tackling the root causes as well as the symptoms of poverty. One of these root causes is tax dodging. We estimate that the developing world loses as much as US $160 billion each year as a result of tax dodging by some unscrupulous multinational companies. If we could prevent this then countries would have more money available to spend on education, water provision, sanitation and life-saving drugs. More information about the issue of tax dodging is available here.

We want more people to become aware of the impact of tax dodging. Cartoons are a powerful way of communicating complex messages and ideas in a way that is accessible and memorable. We want to harness this creative potential to get more people involved in the campaign against tax dodging.

All entries will be featured on our Flickr gallery and the best will be featured in our magazine and website too.

Details on how to enter and terms & conditions are all available online here.
