In order to encourage Serbian citizens to take action in promoting environmental protection, the EU Delegation to Serbia and the project “Reinforced Implementation of Visibility and Communication Activities of IPA Programmes” are organizing a nation-wide cartoon and short comic book competition. The aim of the competition is to see how Serbian citizens perceive problems concerning environmental protection as well as to promote the importance of this topic and launch a “call to action.”

Both professional and amateur cartoonists and comic book artists are invited to send their artwork on environmental problems in Serbia, on how Serbian citizens preserve the environment or how they fail to do it.

The deadline to submit the artwork is June 2, 2019.
