The Independent Newspaper has published a series of political cartoons from around the world on the topic of climate change. The cartoons were gathered as part of a contest promoted by the Ken Sprague Fund, which encouraged artists to submit their creations. After receiving submissions from 300 artists in 55 countries around the world, the Fund chose its favorites.
After developing a shortlist of the top 16 entries, the Fund chose its favorites. First place went to Mikhail Zlatkovsky of Russia, second to Constantin Ciosu of Romania, and third to Tawan Chuntraskawvong of Thailand.
