YoungMinds.Org #LifeOnTheWeb Cartoon Competition

YoungMinds have just launched their #LifeOnTheWeb cartoon competition. The winners will receive a range of prizes from the London Graphic Centre, and their work will be published in national media and as part of YoungMinds' next youth campaign, which launches this summer.

To enter, applicants are asked to submit a cartoon, comic strip or 5-10 second animation showing their experience of coping with life online.

The cartoons – which can be funny, serious, quirky or thought-provoking – can be about social media addiction, gaming, obsession with phones, FOMO, the need to be camera-ready, cyberbullying or the difference between their artist's online and offline world. Anything, in fact, about the pressures that young people face in the online world.

The competition will be judged by the cult online artist Rubyetc, illustrator and author Mike Medaglia and a panel of YoungMinds activists. It’s open to young people up to age 25, and closes at 5pm on 26th May 2016.

“I think this is a very good way to get to young kids like myself to talk about their online life.but do we have to submit only comic strip or animation? like why not a story or poem.”

“Hi Inayia - this is a competition from last year that we advertised for the charity, we don't have any affiliation with the competition and therefore are unable to comment. Thank you!”
