We’re looking for a new cartoonist!

The back page of the New Statesman has a weekly cartoon slot and we’re looking for a new artist to fill it.

The cartoon can be topical or surreal, wordy or purely visual – the most important thing is that it must be witty. Make us laugh.

It should be in colour. The space is 188mm wide x 74mm high. We suggest a two or three-panel strip might work best, but you can use the space as you wish.

Please submit at least one and no more than three examples, in jpeg format, to

Feel free to add a couple of sentences about yourself, your ideas for the cartoon, and, if you have one, a link to your other work. 

Please do not submit entries by post. We will do our best to get back to you within 30 days.

This is an advertisment for a paid regular freelance position. Your submission will be treated as a job application. We will not use your work without your permission or without payment.
