The city of Barakaldo is organizing "New technologies," the seventh international contest of pictorial humor and Flash humor. Cartoonists will send a work of illustrated humor or Flash in relation with new technologies, which have a considerable impact on the day to day life (i.e. Internet, biology, space, telecommunications, medicine, etc...).

The piece of work with the reference of the artist will be sent exclusively through e-mail, to the following address: before Nov. 4, 2007.

The "Hermes de Barakaldo" prize is divided in two categories:* Animated category: 1st prize: 1,200 euros, 2nd prize: 800 euros, 3rd prize: 600 euros.* Non-animated category: 1st prize: 1,200 euros, 2nd prize: 800 euros, 3rd prize: 600 euros.

A qualified panel of judges will pick out the best works. Prizes will be handed on the first week of December 2007, in Barakaldo. The city leaves to the panel the possibility to declare no winners, according to quality criteria.
