Canadian Committee for World Press Freedom Cartoons 2014

The winners of the 2014 Cartoon competition

The theme for the 14th CCWPF International Editorial Cartoon Competition was:
“Big Brother is Watching You.”
Whistleblower Edward Snowden revealed how the National Security Agency worked with government agencies to spy on the private communications of millions of individuals. Further revelations disclosed how the U.S. agency used massive data collected by internet and telephone corporations to circumvent laws that prohibit government agencies from spying on their own citizens. Without protection from illegal and unwarranted surveillance, the private communications of individuals can be chilled, leading to massive self censorship, the shackling of free speech and the creation of a Big Brother society.
As a condition of this competition, the cartoon creators grant the CCWPF and media outlets the right to publish them on the occasion of World Press Freedom Day and in support of its free speech principles. Credit to the creator and to the International Editorial Cartoon Competition of the Canadian Committee for World Press Freedom (CCWPF) is required.
