5th KalDer Bursa International Cartoon Contest 2018, Turkey
1. Topic of the Contest: "MANAGING TRANSFORMATION"
Explanation about the topic of the contest: The Ephesian philosopher Herakleitos explains the problem of being in the metaphysical understanding of ancient times with the word 'Panta rei'. According to him, the universe is a constantly flowing process, a change that has no beginning and end. In this process there is nothing that does not change and goes on.
Cities are being reshaped according to needs. The sources that are at risk of extinction, necessitate harmonious production with nature. Innovative ideas stand out in the face of changing customer expectations. Countries are examining their economic, social, cultural and technological structures. New strategies are identified in national development policies and plans. Today's changes and transformations seem to make it possible for us to grant Herakleitos, the ancient metaphysical thinker. Today's young and equipped managers take their place in the business world and see the inevitability of using the time effectively and keeping up with the times quickly. The industry and the service sectors know the necessity as much as in whole life, to keep pace with this transformation.
Thus, the Topic of the KalDer International Cartoon Contest, which we carried out this year, is "MANAGING TRANSFORMATION".
