The competition, scheduled to be held in June 2016, is expected to draw submissions from artists from some 50 countries, Iran’s semi-official IRNA news agency reported in December.

Israel’s Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein on Wednesday urged UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to denounce the 11th Tehran International Cartoon Biennial.

Edelstein said that “words cannot describe the revulsion and protestation of the state of Israel and many across the world at the recurring proof that Iran continues in its policy of Holocaust denial.”
