Damascus, Syrian Cartoonist Raed Khalil won the Silver Prize at Free Cartoons Web International Cartoonet Festival 2018, held in China amid a wide participation of scores of states.
The winning painting of artist Khalil talks about the culture of fear as he depicts this situation through putting a camera on the neck of an ostrich which usually buries its head in the sand when it feels of danger as the painting conveys several semantics and projections.
The Grand Prize went to Cartoonist Marcin Bondarowicz from Poland while the Gold Prize went to Cartoonist Bossens Philippe from Belgium and Cartoonist Li Haifeng from China.
Artist Khalil last month harvested several international awards from Serbia, Ukraine and Turkey, and the latest of which was from Romania.
