Jury chairman Lars Refn says Anne Derenne
got a 3,000-euro cheque Saturday for her interpretation of the "Utopia" theme in "a terrific way." Her cartoon shows an ecstatic couple in a rowing boat approaching a bountiful green island. However, under the water line, it appears it is made up of industrial waste.

Runner-up Marco d'Agostino got 2,000 euros while the third prize went to Luc Vernimmen.

Refn said Saturday the "Utopia" theme was picked "after Europe almost entered a state of shock over the wave of migrants." The contest was named for the inn near Viborg, 160 miles northwest of Copenhagen, where it was held.
