Holocaust Cartoon Contest Rules Posted

Iranian newspaper Hamshahri has announced the rules for entering its Holocaust Cartoon Contest. The newspaper says that the theme of the contest is, "what is the limit of Western freedom of expression?"

The deadline for entries (which can be sent anonymously) is May 5. Entries can be sent in jpeg format to, or originals can be sent to "Iran Caricature House No. 60, next to Ketabi square, Gol Nahbi gharbi Street, Hammat Expressway and Sharlatl street intersection, Teheran, Iran." - might be a good idea to go with the email address.

I encourage everyone to enter; I'm already preparing my own cartoon, mocking the flat earth-type premise of the contest.
