toonsUp has started a colaboration with German-language street newspapers. We are offering to street papers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland to publish cartoons and short comics by toonsUp artists under the motto "Cartoons Against the Cold".
The cartoons for the campaign should bear reference to socio-critical or political topics (such as unemployment, family policy, social observations and so on).
toonsUp supplies cartoons and comics to these papers at no charge. By taking part you are not only presenting your art to a wider audience, you are also supporting very important social projects!
About street newspapers: These are usually regional papers. They support homeless and other needy people. These papers are sold on the street, usually by homeless people or people on welfare that use the income to improve their living conditions.
How do I participate? * Create a cartoon with a socio-critical or political background (or select one from your pool of work). * Join toonsUp and upload your cartoon(s). * Mail your cartoon(s) including your name in a 300dpi resolution (a width of at least 1000 pixels), email below * We collect your cartoons and give them to the street magazines, which choose what they'll print. * We inform you about your published cartoons and'll see you get a copy of the magazine.
We are very much looking forward to your contributions!
