02 August, 2018 - Skiing and swimming on the same day, that is an idea that is perfectly logical to Montenegrins, but stunning to all the tourists who come to this country. That is also the theme of the Third International Caricature Festival, which was recently held in Kolašin.

Although this caricature festival offers modest awards because of lack of investment, the organisers are confident that in the future the festival will only get bigger. On this occasion, creative, funny and entertaining works on the topic of tourism in Montenegro were required. The theme has pretty much intrigued caricaturist participants, which is why they responded in a very inspiring way to the topic offered to them. The organizers consider that in this way it was possible to present and promote the amazing aspects of Montenegrin tourism.

More than 500 works were received at the Festival competition in Kolašin, from about 200 authors from 41 countries of the world from different continents. The expert jury who had the tough task of deciding who the winner was, and had the following composition - the president, distinguished artist Luka Lagator, freelance caricaturist Medi Belortaja from Albania, Radojica Bulatović, director of Radio Crne Gore, graphic designer Nina Bojanović and freelance caricaturist Darko Drljević.


The first prize at the Third International Caricature Festival "Kolašin 2018" was won by Croatian caricaturist Damir Novak. The second prize was won by Jerzy Gluszek from Poland, while the third prize went to Yuksel Cengiz from Turkey.


The organiser of the festival is the Municipality of Kolašin, which, together with the Culture Center, provided awards for the winners of the competition. The organisers also had the idea that given the topic of the Festival: Skiing and swimming on the same day - a book catalog could be made from the best caricatures, with the main focus being the tourist potential of Montenegro. They hope that Montenegrin tourism industry will take a step forward and provide funds for the printing process, in order to show to the world how caricaturists from all over the world see skiing and swimming on the same day that is possible in Montenegro.
