BuzziNews 2009 Marathon, Rolls Out With $3000 of Prizes
Buzinews refreshes with a new format, giving a wider stage to cartoons and caricatures, alongside "news commentary" to notable international events.
Comics and caricature artists from around the world are invited to take part in this new activity and have a positive influence on world opinion.
Once Again we will find away to make surfers smile and enjoy the illustrations, without use of violence, profanity or racist expressions.
Anybody who wants to send cartoons for the first time must
up. If you have already signed up to BuzziNews you do not need to do it again.
Any cartoonist can contact the Buzzinews team
to ask questions and advise.
BuzziNews will provide registered cartoonists frequent updates regarding future topics for the website and submission deadlines for the various competitions in order to allow an equal opportunity to all who wish to participate.
At the end of each month, the cartoonist with the highest number of surfer credit points will be chosen as the monthly winner. BuzziNews will filter and edit the cartoons and only the very best will be staged on the website and participate. The primary parameters that would be taken in account are:
Does the Cartoon suit the focus of the current edition of BuzziNews (as it will be defined in the topic list sent to registered members)?
The level of skill and technique.
The first monthly competition in 2009, will include cartoons sent to BuzziNews until January 30th 2009, the next competition will include the cartoons sent on February and so on.
Submission for January's Competition starts NOW.
How can I win? The surfers decide. The winner will be the cartoonist with the most surfer credit points summed from all of his cartoons posted throughout the duration of the monthly competition.
The first place winner of the monthly competition will receive a certificate and a "Special Tribute Edition" dedicated to his cartoons alone. The surfers' votes for his cartoons will be summed up as credit points for the bi-annual competition.
Second and third place will also receive a certificate. The surfers' votes for their cartoons will be summed up as credit points for the bi-annual competition.
This year we have decided to split our annual competition to two competitions: the first one will begin on 1/1/09 and end at the end of July. The winners of this competition will be announced at the end of July. The second competition will begin on 1/7/09 and end at the end of December 2009. The winners for the second competition will be announced on January 2010.
How can I win? The surfers decide. The winner will be the cartoonist with the most surfer credit points summed from all of his cartoons posted throughout the duration of the bi- annual competition.
The Golden Prize: 1000$ + a special BuzziNews certificate and exposure in scores of international media sites and publications.
The Silver Prize: 300$ + a special BuzziNews certificate and international media exposure.
