The School Magazine welcomes submissions for one-panel cartoons at any time. These fabulous bite-sized pieces of fun appear in each issue of the magazine. We encourage the use of puns and wordplay to appeal to children, and we’ve found that the most successful cartoons have more ‘showing’ than ‘telling’.

The cartoons need to be:

  • Original work
  • Created in a square format (120mm x 120mm minimum size)
  • CMYK (300 dpi minimum)

Rough or finished artwork should be attached as a PDF and emailed to

Take a look at some of the cartoons that have appeared across all four magazines. Our readers love them!
