European Tissue Symposium
The European Tissue Symposium is launching the 4th edition of the ETS International Cartoon Contest., using creative talent to promote the importance of proper hand drying and hand hygiene. Last year's cartoon contest resulted in 71 entries from 37 countries worldwide and a selection of these entries together with the winning contributions are being exhibited during the show.
ETS regularly invests in scientific research but additionally it also reaches out to young talented artists to help them convey their message through the creation of cartoons or illustrations. This year, the contest will be organised through a dedicated Facebook page.
The last three ETS Cartoon Contests took place in close collaboration with the Academy of Fine Arts of Bologna, Italy. New to this year, is the partnership with the Hochschule für Angewandte Wissenschaften (HAW) of Hamburg, Germany. Additionally, the contest is also open to international participants.
"The ETS Cartoon Contest brings together the best of two, complementary worlds," says professor Mario Rivelli (artistic name Otto Gabos) from the Academy of Fine Arts of Bologna. "Art and science create synergy, and the cartoon contest creates the perfect platform to bring the message around proper hand hygiene to a broader audience."
Professor Anke Feuchtenberger from HAW, Hamburg, adds: "We are introducing this initiative to our students for the first time. It is an excellent opportunity for them to gain some insight in the business world and to demonstrate their creativity within a well-defined context."
Roberto Berardi, President of ETS, points out that the ETS celebrates Global Hand washing Day. "That is why the title we have chosen for this year's ETS Cartoon Contest - Hands, wash'em with soap, dry'em with paper', makes immediate reference to the importance of washing your hands. Along with washing them, drying them is equally as important and plays a fundamental part in promoting hand hygiene and controlling the spread of infections.”
Participation to the ETS Cartoon Contest is now open to all comers and entry is free of charge. The deadline for submitting the entries is 6th June 2014. Three prizes worth €1000 each will be attributed to the three categories: a student of the Academy of Fine Arts, one of the Hochschule für Angewandte Wissenschaften and the third one to an international participant.
