Iran has organized a “Trumpism” cartoon contest in which hundreds of participants were invited to submit artwork mocking the U.S. President Donald Trump.
The logo for the contest is based on the Nazi emblem, with a diagonal “T” in a white circle against a red background.
Hadi Asadi of Iran, who won first prize and a $1,500 award, said he wanted to highlight the “money-mindedness and war monger nature” of Trump. His cartoon shows Trump wearing a jacket made of dollar notes while drooling on books, a reference to cultural material, the Independent reported.
The exhibition, which opened Monday and will last one week, includes the works of some 1,614 Iranian and foreign participants from 74 countries, including four works from American cartoonists, of which two were awarded citations.
The same organizers held a Holocaust cartoon contest last year, which they said was meant to highlight Western double standards on free speech and not to cast doubt on the Nazi genocide.
