Are you a cartoonist? Show us what you’ve got and you could WIN R5000!

Calling all ambitious cartoonists and illustrators. We’re looking for your best cartoon that could earn you an opportunity of a lifetime – and R5000 cash.

Cartoonists, for many years, have made us laugh out loud with their sharp commentary on the times we live in. Their work has also made us pause to think and reflect on our problems and successes.


Are you a budding cartoonist with a growing voice, who can sum up the moment in one brilliant frame? Then you could win R5000 in cash and a chance of a lifetime.

You also stand a chance of being a regular cartoon contributor for The South African website and reach millions of people every day.

To enter, send us your best cartoon as a commentary on one of today’s burning issues or outrageous stories. Your entry must be in the form of an illustration that YOU have created. 


Send your BEST cartoon (1) together with your CV to [email protected] with the subject “Cartoon competition”.

Cartoon dimensions MUST be 1200 x 858 px and can be in JPG, PDF or PNG format.

The competition ends on 20 March 2022.


We can’t wait to receive your illustrations. Apart from winning R5,000, the lucky winner may be offered a contract with The South African, but at this point in time, this is not guaranteed. Please also note that by submitting your cartoon illustration as part of our competition, you agree to share the copyright of your illustration with The South African (as reflected in our terms and conditions).
