Tehran - Iranians have organised a "Trumpism" cartoon contest in which hundreds of participants have been invited to submit artwork mocking the US leader.

The same organisers held a Holocaust cartoon contest last year, which they said was meant to highlight Western double standards on free speech and not to cast doubt on the Nazi genocide.

The logo for the Trump contest is based on the Nazi emblem, with a diagonal "T'' in a white circle against a red background. One cartoon shows President Donald Trump painting a Hitler-like moustache on the face of the Statue of Liberty.

The exhibition, which opened on Monday, includes the works of about 1 600 Iranian and foreign participants. The winner of the top prize will get $1 500.
