Anti-Corruption Cartoon Awards announced, curated cartoons on exhibition

TIB announced the results of its flagship Anti-Corruption Cartoon Awards on International Anti-Corruption Day (IACD). The colourful exhibition of 48 curated cartoons was also inaugurated on the same day.
Cartoons this year covered various topics under the theme "Corruption and Good Governance". TIB received 268 cartoons from 180 artists for this year’s competition.

In Group A (13-18 years), Tanvir Hasan Shuvo stood third for his cartoon on corruption in job sectors, Md. Jubair Islam Shafi stood second for his cartoon on the failure of the criminal justice system, and Rafsan Jani stood first for his cartoon on the inability of policy mechanisms to stop corruption.

In Group B (19-25 years), the third position went to Oishik Jawad for his cartoon depicting how good governance cannot be established without eradicating corruption, the second position went to Abdullah Al Zunaed for his artwork on election irregularities, and the first position went to Rajan Nandi for his artwork on socioeconomic impacts of corruption.

The six winners from two age groups received certificates, crests, and prize money for their artwork, while the rest of the cartoonists received certificates as special mentions.

While speaking at the awards distribution event, the chairperson of the board of trustees of TIB, Dr. Perween Hasan said, “A single cartoon can say a lot of things. This is not just a picture but a medium for raising questions. We see now that society avoids asking tougher questions. But it makes us happy and encouraged seeing young people raising the questions using cartoons.”

The Anti-Corruption Cartoons Exhibition will continue till 23 December 2022 at TIB’s Meghomala Conference Room situated in MIDAS Centre (Level-5), Road 16 (new) 27 (old), Dhanmondi, Dhaka. The gallery will be open from 12:00 pm to 7:00 pm, including weekends.
