Breaking the Taboo - Sanitation Cartoon Competition Results and Gallery
SuSanA and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), collaborated with Max Müller Bhavan (Göthe Institute), Green Wicket, Indian Institute of Cartoonists, and EAWAG/Sandec to hold a sanitation-themed cartoon competition. The spirit of the competition was to create cartoons which would get people to laugh and talk about sanitation - towards breaking the taboo around sanitation!

We received creative, funny, and profound cartoons from around the world, which highlighted humour around the subject, while also vividly displaying the seriousness of the issues. Thank you to everyone who submitted an entry and have made a contribution towards breaking the taboo around sanitation with their cartoons.

We are happy to share with you the results of the competition and to provide a gallery of the cartoon entries.

Breaking the taboo - sanitation cartoon competition call for cartoons (due March 12, 2014)

Setting the Scene

Just like you, we think a good way to make people talk about something is to make them laugh – with your creativity we want to break the silence about toilets and sanitation in India!

One reason why bad sanitation kills more than 1000 children every day in India is: It is still a taboo and people don't talk about it, even though it's an issue that concerns all of us - several times a day, every day.

Break the taboo around toilets and sanitation by submitting your work.

We invite you to submit your creative and fun ideas about toilets and sanitation in the form of Cartoons, Caricatures or Infographics that will create a humorous atmosphere around sanitation concerns. We are flexible with the entry's format as long as it:

Surprises the silent majority and makes them laugh and talk about sanitation!
