JERUSALEM, January 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

The Jerusalem Press Club and the Israeli Cartoon Museum have launched a competition among high-school students in Israel, for the best cartoons dealing with the issues of how to relate to the Other, to the Different, to the Believer in other religion, without hurting too much the feelings of the observers.

The competition, titled: "Cartoon • Criticism • Care", with world renowned cartoonists as jury, resulted in an exhibition displaying the best 30 cartoons to be opened in Jerusalem on the eve of the first anniversary of the terror attack on Charlie Hebdo on January 7, 2016.

First Prize - The Rabbinate (made by Amit Katz, age 17, from Hadera)

In Israel, people have to marry under the auspices of the Chief Rabbinate, even if they wish to marry in different ways. In order to marry their loved ones, people have to act like marionettes.

Second Prize - Fun at the Beach 2116 (made by Iosefa Jacobovici, 16, Ra'anana)

This is the "fun" people will have on their beaches 100 years from now. In the spirit of the competition, I chose to shame the results of the pollution, not the people who are responsible for it.

Third Prize - Haaretz Hayom (made by Hava Herman, 15, Jerusalem)

By pretending to read high-brow elitist Haaretz newspaper while actually reading popular Yisrael Hayom, the man hides from his partner the views with which he really identifies.
