An important highlight of the World Press Freedom Day Luncheon is the recognition of editorial cartoonists from around the world who have used images and words to make powerful commentary on world issues. The International Editorial Cartoon Competition receives hundreds of entries every year, often from countries where press freedom is not a reality but a distant dream.
