Cartoonist Wins in Cyprus Olive Contest

Iranian cartoonist Saeed Sadeghi received the International Jury Members Special Prize at the 6th International Olive Cartoon Contest in Kyrenia, Cyprus, last week. “I was inspired by Leonardo da Vinci sketches of flying machines, and changed it into a peace bird”, Honaronline quoted Sadeghi as saying about his winning cartoon. Sadeghi, 43, got his bachelor’s degree in painting from Tehran Art University in 2004. So far, he has received many national and international awards, including the first prizes at the 11th International Environmental Cartoon Contest China 2016, International Contest of World Press Cartoon Sintra in Portugal 2003 and the International Cartoon Contest Scopje in Macedonia in 2003. According to the Cyprus contest website, the event seeks to show the true meaning of the olive tree not only as a sign for peace and achievement but as the oldest food and body care product.
