About

Goldpencil.id is a website that presents information about international cartoon contest. This website was developed by Gold Pencil Indonesia Foundation.

Gold Pencil Indonesia Foundation is an organization engaged in the development and study of cartoons based in the Semarang City, Central Java, Indonesia. This institution was inspired by several cartoonists who were compelled to perform the movement. They are Jitet Koestana (MURI record holder with the most international cartoon awards), Suratno (art teacher of SMPN 17 Semarang, the winner of Gold Prize SICACO 2017 ) and Abdul Arif (young cartoonist, the winner of First Prize 5th KalDer Bursa International Cartoon Contest, Turkey).

Semarang city is known as the capital of Indonesian cartoon. In this city was born a number of cartoonists with world-class achievements. However, the development of cartoons in Semarang is not supported by a good cadre system. Gold Pencil Indonesia tries to answer that challenge.

Gold Pencil Indonesia began to take part in cartoon development since "Jitet Exhibition and Friends" held on 26-27 August 2017. At that time, Gold Pencil for the first time featured the work of junior high school students. They are young cartoonists under the guidance of Master Jitet Koestana and Suratno. Children are trained through workshops and cartoon classes.

The result is good. Despite studying cartoons for several months, the children have shown their quality. They have appeared in several contests held in several countries.

Seeing these positive results, Gold Pencil Indonesia designed a more intensive cartoon training program. The goal is to produce cartoonists of the future who is ready to compete in the global era.
