The northeastern regional city of Prešov hosted the 14th annual international cartoon competition, the theme of which was beer and ran under the title Golden Keg 2008, as part of a series of events to promote its bid to be European Capital of Culture in 2013.

Organisers said on April 1 that the main prize of the competition, featuring 425 works by 159 cartoonists, was won by Polish cartoonist Henryk Cebula. He won out over Andreas Malecki (Germany), his Polish countryman Camil Tabak and Bulgarian cartoonist Nikolai Arnaudov, the TASR newswire wrote.

Chief juror Tadeusz Blonski, a Polish artist who teaches painting at the Applied Arts Faculty in Košice and Rzeszov (Poland), commented on how much the competition has improved.

"There are new ideas appearing ... but a good idea is one thing and painting workmanship, another. Among works were also those using new creative techniques, so I believe that standards are still rising," he added. TASR
