Amasya Municipality the 7st International Cartoon Drawing Contest


To Be A Child In Amasya

The childhood period is the best, the most charming, the most unforgettable period.We understand its value after we lose it.How much we want, we don’t bring  back it.

Everybody had lived the childhood period.The emperors who were decreed the world, statesmen, scientists, artists, travelers, sportsmen, unknown people had lived this period.They had missed the past with their memories.Now, that days are wanted to give us who can say “I do not want them”…Moreover, we give whatever is wanted…

THEME:The childhood period is the most purified, the most clear, the most natural periods of people.Impossible things are done,”These are done in the childhood period” is said.

The giant emperors who had grown in Amasya and they had shaped the world, scientists were child once upon a time.Their childhoods are wondered.May be a geographer Strabon who had lived in Amasya, had played the hide-and-seek game in his childhood period.

How the great lover Ferhat and Şirin could know where they toured along the İris River in childhood, now legend of love is to do the sculpture.

Our the first poet of the court Mihri Hatun had played with corn babies in streets of Hatuniye with her friends.May be Fatih Sultan Mehmet Khan who closed the Middle Age, opened the New Age; had played the marble game in the Fethiye town in his childhood period.

Yavuz Sultan Selim is the one of the emperors of the world who is concluded three continents, had played snowball with his friends.He might have played tipcat game in The Castle of Harşena in his childhood.Amasya’s streets are secret heaven which is divided in two parts by the İris River.The İris River is overshadowed by the Harşena Mounth.Who could know that the children would be a famous geographer, poet,emperor and a legend who had lived in these streets.

We want to remind again the forgotten days of our childhood and traditional child games.We want to remind and introduce these to other cultures with these ideas.We wish good luck about your caricatures about the theme “To be a child in Amasya”.
