The Australian Cartoonists Association has organized an exhibition of Australian Cartoonists' artwork as part of the 2014 International Cartoon Festival of Saint Just le Martel (France, http://www.st-just.com).
The Festival will run from the 27th of September to the 5th of October 2014.
Saint Just le Martel is a small village next to the town of Limoges in central France (400km south of Paris).
The festival mostly caters for single gag cartoons, editorial and political cartoons, caricatures and illustrations.
The festival has been around for over 30 years and attracts a lot of cartoonists from around the world as well as lots of visitors ( https://www.facebook.com/pages/Salon-de-lHumour-de-Saint-Just-le-Martel-Haute-Vienne-France/153040051376973 ).

Four ACA Members will actually make the trip to France for the Festival, namely Eric Lobbecke, Judy Horacek, Ward O'Neill and Hagen Cartoons. Eric Lobbecke has kindly agreed to open the exhibition on behalf of the ACA. Two other ACA Members are still considering if they can attend as well.
