Iranian cartoonist Aidin Ardjomandi stated that he had to forego judging at the 2019 Adobe Design Achievement Awards (ADAA)

Iranian designer Aidin Ardjomandi stated that he had to forego judging at the 2019 Adobe Design Achievement Awards (ADAA) due to sanctions imposed on Iran by the Trump administration. In an article published by Persian news agencies last week, Arjdomandi said that he had been invited via an email to join the jury of the ADAA, which is held at Adobe HQ in San Francisco, California. However, the organizers sent another email and said that they could not collaborate with him due to the sanctions.

“I had never been confronted with such discriminatory treatment by societies that always claim they are in a fight against various aspects of discrimination,” Arjdomandi stated. “The organizers of the ADAA have said that they made the decision due to the legal limits imposed by the sanctions, but this explanation failed to convince me,” he added. The award winner Designer and Cartoonist, Ardjomandi won A’Design Award in 2015 by inventing a brand new musical instrument, the Celloridoo, which was a hybrid one by combination of cello and the didgeridoo, He has also won “The Devil gas station-2014” cartoon competition in Ukraine by drawing the caricature of Vladimir Putin.
