Queue jumpers or legitimate refugees?
Cairo, Year 10, Northern Territory
* 1st prize, Years 10–12
Judge’s comments: It may be an old cartooning cliche, putting the words from modern refugee debates in the mouths of those watching the arrival of the First Fleet boat people in 1788, but it remains a powerful way of inviting the reader to question modern political slogans and labels. A friendly and engaging ‘cartoony’ style, simply and cleanly drawn.
