Trading Places

Mardi Gras is extra special for kids. There must be nothing better than sitting up high in a ladder, towering over the crowds, watching the floats and marching bands go rolling by while catching tons of cool throws!

So what’s going on in this cartoon? You tell me. Be witty, funny, crazy, absurd or snarky — just try to keep it clean.

The winning entry will be hand-lettered into the word balloon and run on Lundi Gras, Monday, Feb. 12, in The Advocate print editions and online. In addition, the winner will receive a signed color print of the cartoon along with some other cool Advocate stuff!

Some honorable mentions will also be listed.

Simply email your entry to cartooncontest@theadvocate.com.        

All entries must include your name, home address and phone number.

THE DEADLINE FOR ALL ENTRIES IS THURSDAY, Feb. 8, AT MIDNIGHT.

Good luck everyone!
