To celebrate World Press Freedom Day 2018, UNESCO and Cartooning for Peace are collaborating again to offer a selection of press cartoons in the form of a digital campaign around 3 May.
Designed by committed press cartoonists from around the world, this online exhibition of 15 cartoons combines humour, satire and tragedy to express cartoonists’ views on the state of press freedom around the world, and the many challenges faced by the media and journalists in conveying information to citizens, and in reporting critically on issues of public interest.
This year’s World Press Freedom Day theme, “Keeping Power in Check: Media, Justice and the Rule of Law”, highlights the role of the media and the judiciary in ensuring accountability and defending free, independent and quality journalism to build a better society.
Discover the exhibition here.
