Caros amigos cartoonistas,
Soltem o humor para que o mundo fique melhor!
Façam turismo, ajudando-nos a saber tudo o que não se deve fazer. E que muitos não querem saber. Tornem sustentável o turismo, com o vosso humor insustentável!
Se o vosso humor for caustico e com a ponta dos lápis nas feridas do mundo, fique o universo de olho aberto, em alerta. Nada passará em claro. Nem mesmo o ‘turismo sustentável para o desenvolvimento’!
No campo da caricatura, duas grandes figuras apelam ao exercício da beleza da distorção. Um, Picasso, começou ele mesmo por caricaturar o mundo de forma extremamente cúbica; o outro, Guterres, com altos e baixos na política, chega ao topo da diplomacia mundial como um ‘corredor de fundo’. Ambos são o pretexto oportuno para uma demonstração acutilante da linguagem mais universal (depois ou antes da música?).
Participar nesta XIX edição do PortoCartoon-World Festival é dar ao mundo o melhor bem: rir e pensar.

Dear cartoonist friends, 
Unhook the humor to make the world better!
 Make tourism, helping us to know everything we should not do. And many of us do not want to know. Make sustainable tourism, with your unsustainable humor!
If your humor is caustic and your pencils are pointing to the wounds of the world, all the universe should watch out. Nothing will be left out. Not even the 'sustainable tourism for development'!
In the field of caricature, two great figures call for the exercise of beauty distortion.  Picasso began himself by caricaturing the world of extremely cubic shape; Guterres, with his ups and downs in politics, reaches the top of world diplomacy as a ‘long-distance runner’. Both are a pertinent pretext for a razor-sharp demonstration of the most universal language (after or before the music?).
To participate in this nineteenth edition of PortoCartoon-World Festival is to give the world a precious jewel: an opportunity to laugh and to think.
