Artists from China, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Poland, Iran, Cuba, France, Belgium, Greece, Indonesia and the Netherlands participate in the festival.

Pakdel started working on caricature in 1994 and collaborated with important Iranian journals including Golaqa, Keyhan Caricature and many more. He has attended many festivals across the world and won over 100 awards at home and in Brazil, Portugal, Turkey, Croatia and Germany.

Also a caricaturist, illustrator and character designer, Pakdel won the Grand Prix and first prize in the editorial section of 2017 World Press Cartoon in Lisbon and two awards at Brazil’s 43rd International Humor Exhibition of Piracicaba 2016.

In both events his winning works were centered on the subject of migrants and immigration.
